YouTube creator Amelia Dimoldenberg had a playful encounter with Andrew Garfield at the red carpet of the Golden Globes on January 10th.
She posted a video of their conversation on Twitter and it has since gone viral. The video starts with some playful teasing and an awkward exchange of “hi,” Garfield tells her, “I only ever want to see you.”
From there, what ensues is several minutes of adorable banter that has people wishing they were in Dimoldenberg’s shoes: Openly flirting with the star, who was nominated at the Globes for “Under the Banner of Heaven,” about astrological compatibility and “exploring” a relationship.
Dimoldenberg is a self-proclaimed “very serious journalist” known for the web interview series “Chicken Shop Date,” she first interviewed Garfield in November for British GQ’s Men of the Year 2022 red carpet.
At their first meeting, which was also recorded, Garfield tells Dimoldenberg he’s a fan of her YouTube series: “I think you’re great,” Dimoldenberg responds boldly.
“I’m asking you out right now,” she says, to an already giggling Garfield.

Normally, Dimoldenberg doesn’t meet potential celebrity crushes amid such glitz. Banter is usually exchanged in a British chicken shop over fried food for her YouTube channel. But so far, with Garfield, the red carpet has been the site of their flirtation.
“We must stop meeting like this,” she says during her second run-in with Garfield at the Golden Globes.
The two-minute long clip is more banter session than interview. At one point, Garfield calls her out for not actually asking a question when she brings up his role in “Under the Banner of Heaven.”
Instead, the two discuss more pressing matters like weekend plans and birth charts. After Dimoldenberg says she plans to invite Garfield to her birthday party, he asks her about her astrological sign.
When she reveals she’s an Aquarius, Garfield has a visceral response.
Garfield points out that her sun sign matches his moon sign, considered a marker of compatibility.
“If you have a sun sign that’s the same as the moon sign of someone else,” he starts, before smirking.
“It’s not good?” Dimoldenberg asks.
“No, it’s good,” he responds.
“Why is that an issue?” she asks.
“Because I don’t think we should explore this,” he says. “I’m scared of what it could turn into. I’m not ready for that kind of thing.”
