Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield: Sparks 'still there,' split never happened?

Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are spotted out and about in the L.A. area -- um, what split?

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are reportedly back together -- assuming they ever split in the first place, that is.

The ultra-adorable "Amazing Spider-Man" costars were rumored last month to have taken a break from their romance, which started up in 2011 when they were filming the superhero flick.

However, neither of the stars' camps confirmed the split, and photos of the couple surfaced this week showing them out and about together in the Los Angeles area.

Stone, 26, and Garfield, 31, were seen grabbing a bite at Malibu Farm in Malibu on Tuesday and having dinner at Sushi Park in West Hollywood on Wednesday, according to several reports.

Distance is said to have forced their separation, with the couple reportedly apart only because of work: He was shooting Martin Scorsese's historical drama "Silence" in Taiwan, and she had been wrapping up production on her Hawaii-set "Aloha." 

Now, the two are said to be seeing each other again, People reported on Friday.

"Nothing major happened between them while he was away other than a long and forced separation," a source told the mag. "Andrew has been incredibly busy and so has Emma. But the sparks are still there."

E! News backed up the "never officially broke up" story line, with its sources saying that "it was always a 'break' due to schedules."

"They have been really busy, so they finally have had time to see each other again. They care for each other and always have the best time when together," a source told the site.

However, Us Weekly reported that the duo is "working on their relationship and will probably get back together."

The British actor is reportedly staying in the "Birdman" actress' L.A. home, People said. Just last weekend, Garfield's folks joined Stone at the London screening of "Aloha," which also stars Rachel McAdams and Bradley Cooper.
