WENN says that Tobey Maguire talked to Details magazine about his back problems…
Reports circulated in the press that Columbia movie chiefs had ditched Maguire in favor of Jake Gyllenhaal, because they feared his back trouble would make him incapable of playing the web-slinger.
And though Seabiscuit star Tobey insists the reports were far from accurate, he admits he could have caused on-set havoc if he’d kept the problem to himself.
He tells the magazine Details, “I have a herniated disc…and if something happened to me and I didn’t disclose it fully, then I’m responsible for who knows what.
“There were a lot of assumptions going on, a lot of misreadings, but it’s all water under the bridge.”
