Method acting is a technique that sees actors live as their fictional character even while not shooting, and Andrew has revealed that his experience with it was pretty extreme.
According to him, he actually starved himself of s*x and food while playing a priest in 2016, and it was a very challenging but effective period for him.
Andrew added that he went as far as doing a bunch of spiritual practices every day, and he even created new rituals.
His words, “I did a bunch of spiritual practices every day, I created new rituals, I was celibate for six months and I was fasting a lot.”
“It was very cool, man. I had some pretty wild, trippy experiences from starving myself of sex and food at that time.”
“There [have] been a lot of misconceptions about what method acting is, I think.”
“People are still acting in that way, and it’s not about being an asshole to everyone on set. It’s actually just about living truthfully under imagined circumstances, and being really nice to the crew simultaneously, and being a normal human being, and being able to drop it when you need to and staying in it when you want to stay in it.”
“I’m kind of bothered by this idea that ‘method acting is f***ing bulls***.’ No, I don’t think you know what method acting is if you’re calling it bullshit, or you just worked with someone who claims to be a method actor who isn’t actually acting the method at all.”
“It’s also very private. I don’t want people to see the f***ing pipes of my toilet. I don’t want them to see how I’m making the sausage.”
