After their segment got cut from the 86th Academy Awards ceremony, Andrew Garfield and the “Batkid” Miles Scott spent the day together at Disneyland, and despite the snub they had a “great time.”
“We were happy that Andrew, on his own time, drove to Anaheim on Monday to spend time with Miles and his family,” Make-a-Wish spokesperson Josh deBerge tells E! News. “We understand they had a great time.”
After rumors started flying that Garfield canceled their skit that was planned to run during the Oscars, both the academy and his rep released a statement revealing that it wasn’t Garfield’s decision to pull the segment.
“In full collaboration with the academy and the show writer, Andrew prepared a segment for the Oscars to honor Miles Scott as the true hero that he is. At some point overnight on Saturday/Sunday morning, it was decided by those running the show that the segment didn’t work in the ceremony,” the statement says. “They decided to pull it — Andrew and Miles were equally upset. The producers arranged for Miles and his family to visit Disneyland on Monday and Andrew drove down to visit them and to bring Miles a personal gift.”
All’s well that ends well, right? “Andrew did the right thing for Batkid and anyone saying otherwise is flat out lying,” the statement says.
