What does it take to inspire a little school spirit on an early Friday morning? Why, a surprise visit from a couple of Hollywood superstars, of course! The Amazing Spider-Man 2 stars Andrew Garfield and Jamie Foxx, who are in Singapore to participate in World Wildlife Fund’s Earth Hour 2014, stopped by Commonwealth Secondary School yesterday morning to learn about the institution’s renowned environmental programs.
Okay, so based on students’ palpable glee prior to the assembly, it was obvious that they had some idea of what was about to transpire. But nothing could prepare us for the mob that surged forward once Jamie and Andrew strode into the room.
“This is my first time in Singapore,” Jamie said, making his way to the stage. “I’m staying in a beautiful hotel. And I got to see your infinity pool!”
Andrew, who plays a teenager in the films, blended right in with the students despite being over 30 years old. The baby-faced actor gamely went around shaking hands, posing for selfies, passing out freebies, and saying hi to everyone who approached him.
