Andrew Garfield: “How I fell for Emma Stone”
Andrew Garfield felt a connection with girlfriend Emma Stone on their first day of auditions for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’.
The couple, who play Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy in the film respectively, have been dating for over year, after bonding on their first day on set.
“We got on really well as people, in between takes,” Andrew, 28, told MTV News. “That was the fun stuff: In between, we’d just mess around and I felt, ‘Ah, this is different.’ I wasn’t really aware of what was happening in the screen test. She keeps you on your toes and that wakes you up. That was the beginning.”
The actor admitted he was thrilled when he heard Emma, 23, had bagged the role as his on-screen love interest, and it wasn’t long before he was looking forward to their days on set together.
“Obviously I was so happy that she got the role and decided to do it,” he added. “Those are the days I’d look forward to, you know? For [my character] Peter as well, because Peter goes through some horrible stuff in the movie. There’s some joy to be had when experiencing his first love.”
Emma has previously praised Andrew for being “one of the most giving” people she has ever worked with.
“Andrew is one of the most giving actors I’ve ever worked with,” she told Teen Vogue magazine. “If I needed to get to a place of love or sadness in a scene, he’d leave messages on my phone to replay, or slip in lines off camera for a different reaction than what was scripted. He gave me so much to react to.”
