Yet another actor has appeared shockingly skinny after playing buff roles and this time it's "The Amazing Spider-Man" Andrew Garfield. And come to find out, Garfield's bizarre weight loss is down to the same thing as "Star Wars" Kylo Ren actor Adam Driver. The Brit hottie opened up on his Spider-Man character letdown, split with Emma Stone and the secret to his emaciated appearance.

Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson, Adam Driver driven to anorexia

What do Andrew Garfield, Liam Neeson and Adam Driver have in common?

Several things--all three ripped actors have experienced horrifying weight loss for a common cause. The trio starred in the 2016 Martin Scorsese film "Silence" which follows the hardships of a band of 17th century Jesuit missionaries. Scorsese told the cast that they would each need to get super thin to achieve the correct look of tortured, starved men. So they each went on an "anorexia diet." All three proved eating disorders can be just as bad as obesity, health-wise.

Andrew Garfield gave his all for part

Long hours shooting, exhaustion and starvation put them in the right mindset to accurately portray the priests' story. Liam Neeson looked so frail folks thought he was ill. Garfield was so ravaged that folks thought he was grieving his split from girlfriend and "Spider-Man" co-star Emma Stone. Adam Driver lost 50 pounds and looked sickly thin and folks wondered if the Kylo Ren actor had an eating disorder.

Driver said it was the most excruciating experience ever, even compared to life in the Marines. But the actors were committed to getting it right, even at the cost of their health.

Hot Spider-Man role leaves Andrew Garfield cold

"Silence" wasn't the only film Garfield threw himself into. The 33-year-old star put body and soul into the role of Spider-Man in "The Amazing Spider-Man" and "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." But the character didn't return the passion.

Garfield said he felt the character of Peter Parker and his backstory as the superhero was sacrificed for the larger story. This was heartbreaking as it was a dream role for the young man. Other comic book actors, like Amy Adams who played Lois Lane in "Superman" felt a similar disillusionment with movies about superheroes.
