Showbiz isn’t always a hospitable world, and many celebrities struggle with being under the spotlight constantly.
Andrew Garfield has been busy of late, starring in multiple major films back to back, including ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ ‘tick, tick…BOOM!,’ and ‘The Eyes of Tammy Faye.’ His next project, a true-crime series called ‘Under The Banner of Heaven,’ hit screens on April 28. In an interview with Variety, Garfield revealed that he’s well and truly ready for a break. His main focus is just to “be ordinary for a while.” Although he’s grateful for all the opportunities he’s had recently and the recognition for his work which earned him an Oscar, nomination, the awards season felt like a “washing machine” and totally wiped him out.
The 38-year-old actor wants to take some time to rest after a whirlwind of a year. “I need to recalibrate and reconsider what I want to do next and who I want to be and just be a bit of a person for a while.”
For one reason or another, many other A-listers felt like they needed some well-deserved time off from their hectic schedules too. Click through this gallery to see which celebs went on a hiatus during their careers.
