Andrew Garfield on ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ chemistry with Emma Stone
Sweet and sought after, young Hollywood stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are speaking out about their chemistry — onscreen, that is, in “The Amazing Spider-Man.”
While the two keep a low profile in their personal relationship (sparked last June), the actors bring some theatrical heat as lovebirds Gwen Stacy and Peter Parker.
“We got on really well as people, in between [takes],” Garfield told MTV News. “That was the fun stuff. In between, we’d just mess around, and I felt, ‘Ah, this is different.’”
Garfield expressed relief that Stone decided to take the role, saying that his scenes with the “Crazy Stupid Love” actress were his favorite to shoot (watch the interview below).
“Those were the days I would look forward to. For 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,” Garfield said.
Stone echoed his sentiments, saying that mutual attraction is instinctive.
“It’s like in life ... you can either sense if you guys have a kind of chemistry or rapport right away no matter what the relationship. Whether it’s love interest or not,” she said.
“The Amazing Spider-Man” swings into theaters July 3. Next up for Stone is the period drama “Gangster Squad,” alongside Sean Penn and Ryan Gosling. Garfield just finished his run in Mike Nichols’ Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of “Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman.”
