10 Actors Who Stole Important Props From Movie Sets

Andrew Garfield last played Spider-Man in 2014's The Amazing Spider-Man 2, with Tom Holland taking over the role two years later. While the Oscar-nominee is no longer playing the web-slinger onscreen, he can at least dress up as the character at home.

Garfield appeared on Radio 1 in 2014, and was asked by host Scott Mills how the whole costume situation worked: was he allowed to keep one when shooting wrapped and the outfit was no longer needed? As it turns out, the answer to that was a resounding no, but that didn't stop Garfield from taking one anyway:

"You know what, they don't [allow him to take a suit], but I may have stolen one and it may be in my luggage, it may be in my hotel room luggage. It may even be in my back pack in the car. It's possible."

The actor then explained that dozens of costumes were created for him to wear in the movies, with each meant to be used at a different point in the film - for example, a more damaged suit would be worn after Spidey has just had a fight with an opponent:

"There are a lot, there are about 23, 24, 25. I don't know, there are a lot of them because they are all in different states of duress and distress. But yeah, they are very snug."

So there you are kids. It's okay to steal as long as you leave plenty behind!
