“The Amazing Spider-Man” movie is not yet out in theaters, but its star, Andrew Garfield, was out doing some amazing work with New York kids on Tuesday. Garfield, along with other members of the film’s cast, participated in “Be Amazing, Stand Up and Volunteer” events, sponsored by Columbia Pictures and “The Amazing Spider-Man,” throughout the Big Apple.

On a visit to the Albert Shanker School for Visual and Performing Arts in Long Island City in Queens, Garfield, 28, told kids during a discussion about bullying that he had been teased when he was a school boy in England. The actor admitted that, at the time, he should have spoken up about it to a trusted adult, according to a report in The New York Daily News.
