Jimmy Kimmel shares epic Emmys story about Andrew Garfield: ‘Might really be Spider-Man’

Jimmy Kimmel shared a marvelous story on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Tuesday night, involving his Emmys tablemate Andrew Garfield and a rogue spearhead from the opening act.

“These dancers come out with spears,” Kimmel recalled.’And they're banging the spears around. And about halfway through the dance, the tip of one of the spears comes flying off the handle straight at us, at our table. And out of nowhere, and I swear to God this happened, Andrew Garfield lunges forward and snatches it out of the air. Like Spider-Man!”

Garfield knows a thing or two about being Spider-Man, as he has donned the superhero’s suit multiple times on the big screen.

“Like he might really be Spider-Man,” Kimmel insisted. “Just as Spider-Man would have done were he in an undercover situation. His shirt came open. My wife almost had to be resuscitated.”

Thanks to Garfield no one was injured and Kimmel ended up with the spearhead as a souvenir.

“I grabbed it off the table,” Kimmel explained.

He then shared a picture of himself, Garfield and the spearhead sitting at the Emmys.

“Well, here I am with the superhero who saved our lives,” Kimmel said. “With great power, comes great reflexes.”
