During his recent appearance on The Graham Norton Show, Andrew Garfield recounted his kissing incident with Ryan Reynolds at the Golden Globe Awards (look in the upper left hand quadrant of the image immediately below). It's an entertaining story - but it also provides many classic nonverbal tells.
Perhaps the most dramatic of these body language moments was captured during the video's 1:15 - 1:16 segment (image below).
Note Andrew Garfield's nonverbal cluster display:
1. Whole Body Pointing away from Graham Norton - 'the instigator'
2. Legs crossed (with his right leg crossed over his left - away from Norton)
3. Leaning Backward
4. Arms pulled inward with both upper and lower arms held close to torso
5. Facial Touching
6. Dorsiflexion of Left Wrist
Despite the fact that Andrew Garfield is an excellent actor (e.g., he's a 2017 Oscar nominee for best actor) - when he's 'in his own skin' - he's no better at suppressing his body language then the average person.
Although Garfield is embarrassed, this rather beta body language cluster is primarily indicative of low emotional comfort, low confidence level and high anxiety. It's also very protective - with all of his limbs drawn inward.
