The Oscars is not only a great time for movie fans to be reacquainted with their favorite actors and filmmakers, but for Hollywood to have its own mix of reunions as well. During the telecast, we saw the show bring together a number of casts back together on stage, including Pulp Fiction, The Godfather and Juno. And over on the red carpet, former roommates Jamie Dornan and Andrew Garfield shared a sweet moment back together.
Garfield was up for a Best Actor Oscar for portraying Jonathan Larson in Tick, Tick... Boom, which ultimately went to Will Smith after a viral scuffle with Chris Rock. Meanwhile, Jamie Dornan was supporting 2022 Best Picture nominee Belfast. The actors found each other on the red carpet ahead of the Academy Awards and posed for this cute photo:
Jamie Dornan previously revealed that Andrew Garfield, along with Fantastic Beasts’ Eddie Redmayne and Daredevil’s Charlie Cox were all roommates before they became such prominent actors. They all shared a house together circa 2008 and went out for a lot of auditions together. It’s great to see the pair still close and both doing so well for themselves individually.
In addition to the four Brits living with one another, they also often hung out with The Batman actor Robert Pattinson. However, as Pattinson recently quipped, he was more of the fifth wheel, as he found Twilight success early while the others were still trying to break out in the business. Andrew Garfield recently reunited with Pattinson at a fancy Hollywood dinner party. Here's one more.
Just following the reunion between Jamie Dornan and Andrew Garfield, Dornan spoke to E! News about the moment caught on the red carpet. In his words:
It must have been wild for the old friends to both find themselves at the biggest Hollywood event of the year after their humble beginnings. Jamie Dornan found mainstream success with the Fifty Shades of Grey franchise and has since been exploring a number of genres, including a breakout comedy role in Barb and Star Go To Vista Del Mar.
Andrew Garfield, on the other hand, just starred in the most profitable movie since the pandemic with Spider-Man: No Way Home. He also gained major praise for starring in Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Netflix musical Tick, Tick… Boom! Maybe these two will collide one day on a movie or TV project next? We shall see!
