A little more than two months after Tom Holland revealed that one of his Spider-Man: No Way Home co-stars supposedly sported a fake butt in his suit, Andrew Garfield has weighed in.

In case you missed it: Back in early February, Tom Holland revealed that at leastone of his predecessors in the latest installment (either Andrew or Tobey Maguire) may have sported a little extra cushion in his Spidey suit. Now, Andrew is stepping in to help dismantle the web of theories on who it actually was.

"He's just stirring the pot—old Tom, he can't help himself," Andrew said during his April 28 appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers. "You know, there's an expression that we have in entertainment, which is, ‘We want to put bums on seats.' You know, we want to get the audience sat and paying their tickets."

And according to Andrew, his co-star knows how to get his audience's attention very well. "Tom is pretty great at creating subgenres of games for you all," the actor added. "While you're in the cinema going, ‘Well that butt doesn't look real. Tobey's looks like it might be real. Could Andrew have that much ass? Maybe, potentially.'"

But not to worry, Andrew does help to narrow down the ass-umption: "All I know is that I am totally unmodified and that's all I can share," he shared, adding that ultimately, his fellow co-star is "very good at marketing."
