Andrew Garfield has come out in support of marriage equality.

As reported by Gay Star News, the 29-year-old The Amazing Spider-Man star told The Times, "Of course I’m in favor of marriage equality. Same-sex couples should have the same rights as anybody else. There is no argument against equality. How can anyone argue against compassion and understanding?"

Well, that just makes good Spidey sense.

Garfield played a gay character onstage in a 2006 revival of Jonathan Harvey’s Beautiful Thing (photos below). Of the play, he says, "The simplicity of it is that it’s a profound, beautiful story of how love can transform you — gay, straight, bi, lesbian, whoever."

What a hero, huh?
