Emma beat actresses including Emma Roberts and Imogen Poots to the role of Gwen Stacy and will star opposite British actor Andrew Garfield (The Social Network, Never Let Me Go) who takes over from Tobey Maguire as Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man himself, in the franchise reboot. Audiences are bound to look for telltale signs of romantic chemistry between the two leads, who are rumoured to be dating in real life.
‘Oh my God, you can’t be friends with anyone any more, can you?’ she laughs. So, are they dating? ‘We’re…we’re…’ she stumbles briefly, ‘we get along very well,’ she concludes with an embarrassed smile. So then, what does Andrew look like in the Spider suit? ‘Oh, he looks like Spider-Man completely,’ she enthuses. ‘At the camera test it was so funny because he was in the costume and I reached over and just touched the suit instinctively. He was like: “Stop it! What are you doing?” and I was going: “I’m so sorry but we’re all in the room with Spider-Man – we’re really freaking out!” But Andrew’s a great actor and so well prepared and completely in the moment too. He’s like a river,’ she adds, ‘he just moves with you.’
After such a glowing testimonial, if the couple aren’t dating then they probably should be, although to be fair, Emma seems to be linked to all her co-stars these days (there are also rumours surrounding her and Ryan Gosling from Crazy, Stupid, Love). For her part, Emma chooses to stay silent. ‘The only way to keep really personal stuff personal,’ she says, ‘is just not to talk about it.’

Kirsten Dunst has said that The Amazing Spider-Man leads Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone will be "charming and great" in the movie.
The Melancholia actress played Mary Jane in Sam Raimi's Spider-Man trilogy alongside Tobey Maguire's Peter Parker, but both actors have been replaced for the series reboot.
"I've always been a big Andrew Garfield fan, I really like his work a lot," Dunst told Digital Spy when asked about the new Spider-Man.
"And I really like Emma. I really like that zombie movie she did a lot, Zombieland, so I'm sure they'll be really charming and great."
Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield’s Date Night
Over the weekend, two of the only people not in Las Vegas were Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield. But we bet if you ask them, we bet they’d tell you they had a great time without going to the concert event of the year.
The Spider-Man pair took to Manhattan for a date night to the Union Square outpost of Max Brenner for something sweet. They split a chocolate fondue and hot chocolate, both dressed casually as to not draw too much attention to themselves. Of course, some things couldn’t be missed, like the way Andrew “affectionately touched” Emma’s hair while they were eating. The couple left TOGETHER at 10:30 p.m, but not before obliging a few fans a photo opt and autographs. Cute and generous. Gotta love them!
They stopped by the Union Square outpost of Max Brenner, the Willy Wonka-like chocolate café and store.
The couple, both dressed causally in jeans, arrived at the eatery around 10:30 p.m., according to a source. Garfield affectionately touched Stone’s hair and face as they shared chocolate fondue and milk hot chocolate.
They took off after about an hour, but not before “two different tables of fans came up to them,” the source said. “They were very friendly.”
And last but not least, Cat Hendy just tweet about the couple on her account. Check out!
@CatHendy Got to serve Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone at work today, what very cool and down to earth people they are!!

The actor behind 'Uncle Ben' in the much-anticipated reboot briefly shares thoughts on the leading star of The Amazing Spider-Man, Andrew Garfield.
“The lad that played Spider-Man/Peter Parker had just come off a huge success with Social Network,” Sheen said. “He could not have been more welcoming or solicitous or kind and courteous. I was just really taken with him. This kid is going to be a big star.”

Hollywood’s new “Spider-Man” has swung out of Warren Beatty’s directorial comeback.
Andrew Garfield has dropped out of the planned Howard Hughes biopic that would mark Beatty’s first project as a director in 13 years. The move has now set the drama back while Beatty finds a replacement.
Beatty had been putting together a blockbuster cast for the film, and met with “everyone in town” for roles early summer, including Garfield, Shia LaBeouf, Jack Nicholson, Evan Rachel Wood and Rooney Mara.
Beatty subsequently had Garfield and “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” star Mara “locked and loaded” this month as the leads for his movie, according to a source.
But Garfield’s deal fell through when the Beatty film couldn’t get its scheduling together, possibly interfering with Garfield’s upcoming Broadway debut, sources said.
“They’re losing Andrew,” said a Hollywood source. “He’s jumping ship. Now it’s back to the drawing board [for casting].
“Warren’s movie couldn’t get it’s start date together, and was taking a long time to get going,” added the source.
“The Social Network” star Garfield is headed to the Great White Way to star in “Death of a Salesman,” produced by Scott Rudin and also starring Philip Seymour Hoffman.
Further sources close to Garfield, currently dating fellow in-demand Hollywood young star Emma Stone, say he takes his craft seriously and values serious roles in the theater.
Beatty’s Hughes film is his first directorial project since 1998 when he was behind the camera for the political satire “Bulworth.”
He also wrote and is starring in the movie as an older version of the tycoon and aviator. Garfield would have played Hughes as a younger man. A source close to Garfield said, “Not true -- he had not committed to (the) project.” Reps for Beatty didn’t get back to us by press time.

Andrew studied spiders for his Spiderman role
Interview: Andrew Garfield on fame: ‘It terrifies me’
Andrew Garfield ensured he fully understood his web-slinging character in The Amazing Spider-Man by studying real spiders so he could mimic their movements.
The British actor plays Peter Parker/Spider-Man in the upcoming reboot and Garfield reveals he had some bizarre tactics for getting in character.
He tells the Los Angeles Times, "I studied spiders, I studied their movements and how they operate in the world and I tried to incorporate as much of that as I could. He’s a boy/spider in terms of how he moves, and not just in the suit. It also shapes the way he interacts with people.
“I looked at the idea of having more legs, more arms, and the spacial awareness. A spider moves up, down, side-to-side, all around. He’s not linear and with the knowledge of that spatial awareness and the fact that he can be here and then over there incredibly fast.”
Interview: Andrew Garfield on fame: ‘It terrifies me’
Coming into the role, was there anything you felt like you had to avoid as you put together your version of Peter Parker and Spider-Man?
Andrew: There’s so much to do with it, I didn’t really think about avoiding anything. I just didn’t come at it that way. I wanted him to have fun. I wanted it to feel like Peter Parker could have some fun and wasn’t just trying to save the world. He could have fun even after the responsibility has been thrust upon him and he has to save the city. I really wanted to do something physical that was genuine and authentic and inspired by the different artists over the years. His physicality is something which I’ve been obsessed by and I’ve loved.
