Spidey star Andrew Garfield is finding offbeat ways to promote the new Amazing Spider-Man film that opens Tuesday.

Today, he delivered a special Chilean Rose tarantula to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

The creature was handed over to Norman Platnick, curator of Spiders Alive!, an arachnid exhibit opening July 28. The event was part of Spider-Man week in New York.

Last night, Garfield was front and center at a Worldwide Orphans Foundation (Spider-Man was an orphan, you know) cocktail party, where he was honored for his work with the organization.

Garfield and sweetie Emma Stone, on hand showing her support, put on pipe-cleaner blue glasses in recognition of WWO's Blue Glasses Campaign. The organization's founder, Jane Aronson, wears (real) blue specs to symbolize the optimism and joy she feels for her work.
