With Thanksgiving eight days away, we’re happy to report that there will superheroes joining the festivities this year—and not just as balloons at the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Amazing Spider-Man is a confirmed Thanksgiving-lover, as Andrew Garfield, the actor who plays the hero, told us at last night’s Worldwide Orphans Foundation Gala in New York City (he’s the sports ambassador for the non-profit). “I’m assuming [Spider-Man celebrates] because he’s American, and he’s pretty tight with his aunt, so yes, I’d say he would,” Garfield told us. And even though Garfield himself is British—as you know it’s not really a British holiday, per history—he will be celebrating, too. “I like turkey, and I like tryptophan, and I like the drowsy feeling that you I get from tryptophan, so yes I will be eating turkey somewhere,” he said. Will it be with on-screen and real-life love, Emma Stone? For that answer, he wouldn’t say. So coy, Spidey!
