Zendaya suspiciously tosses pieces of bread at Andrew Garfield in "Spider-Man: No Way Home."
  • Warning: There are spoilers below for "Spider-Man: No Way Home."
  • MJ (Zendaya) tosses bread at Andrew Garfield's Peter in the film to try and prove his identity.
  • Garfield said on the "Happy Sad Confused" podcast it was Zendaya's idea to throw bread at him.

One of the funniest scenes in " Spider-Man: No Way Home " is when MJ ( Zendaya ) unexpectedly chucks a piece of bread at Andrew Garfield 's costumed Spidey, telling him to prove he's also a version of Spider-Man.

(She believes if he's really a web-crawler, he'll be able to dodge it because of his Spidey senses.)

On an episode of the " Happy Sad Confused " podcast, Garfield told host Josh Horowitz that Zendaya didn't always distrustfully throw bread his way in the sequel. The scene could've been a bit different.

"At first, Zendaya picks up a candlestick or something to like threaten me with in that first scene where I come in, but then there was this basket of bread," Garfield said of how the funny bread moment came to be.

"That was her just going, 'Can I just throw bread at him?'" Garfield continued, adding, "And [director] Jon [Watts] was like, 'Yeah, throw bread at him.'"

Garfield said the entire scene felt like it was "kids just playing."

"No Way Home" puts all three of Sony's live-action Spider-Men — Garfield, Tobey Maguire, and Tom Holland — on screen for the first time .

Garfield previously played Spider-Man in two films, 2012's "The Amazing Spider-Man" and 2014's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2." A third film in the franchise was scrapped after the two films failed ot outperform Tobey Maguire's original trilogy at the box office.

Garfield told Horowitz that getting to reprise his role in "No Way Home" was a "healing" experience after his films came to an abrupt end.

"Coming back and actually getting some more time to have fun with it, and to give the character some closure, and to play, and to be the version of Spider-Man that I was always wanting to get to, and to be with Tobey and Tom and the rest of everybody in the movie, that was healing and just an incredible full-circle moment," Garfield said.

If you're a fan, Horowitz's almost hour-long spoiler-filled conversation with Garfield is worth a listen. You can check it out here .
