Andrew Garfield Reenacts Epic Golden Globes Kiss With Stephen Golbert

"You're a gentle lover," Colbert told the "Silence" star. "I'll start with that."

Andrew Garfield stole the spotlight at Sunday’s Golden Globes when he grabbed Ryan Reynolds for a big smooch when the Deadpool star lost out to Ryan Gosling for Best Actor in a Comedy.

Tuesday night, Garfield went on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to plug his two big films, Martin Scorcese’s Silence and the war drama Hacksaw Ridge. But before he could talk movies, Colbert was dying to know what prompted that man-on-man kiss at the Globes.

“I just wanted him to know, win or lose, I still loved him,” Garfield explained.

Then, as if all the air was let out of the room, the cute Englishman and the distinguished American leaned in for a liplock. Pausing to collect himself, Colbert even went back for a second kiss. (Can you blame him.)

Garfield’s ex, Emma Stone, was a little incredulous about his smooch with Reynolds. “They did not kiss each other!” she insisted at the Globes after-show. But presented with video evidence she declared, “that’s hilarious… I’m happy for them.”

What could be prompting all this man-on-man action from Garfield? Could he be preparing for his role in Angels in America, coming to the London stage in April?
