“I don’t want to see you!”: Andrew Garfield Completely Ghosted Emma Stone For a Week While Filming The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Started Rifts of Breaking Up With His Method Acting

Amazing Spiderman 2

The Amazing Spider-Man, starring Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, revived the Spider-Man film franchise ten years ago. Two years later, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released, but like her comic book counterpart in the 1970s, Stone’s Gwen met an unfortunate fate at the hands of a Green Goblin. As it turns out, Garfield had to ignore Stone for a week while filming Gwen’s death sequence for The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Andrew Garfield ignored Emma Stone for a week

The events surrounding Gwen Stacy’s death in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 differed significantly from what transpired in the comics, including the fact that it occurred in a clock tower rather than a bridge, and that Harry Osborn was the Green Goblin in question rather than his father Norman. But the end outcome was the same: Gwen fell from a great height due to the Green Goblin, Peter attempted to stop her fall with one of his webs, but his attempts resulted in her death, albeit through her skull hitting the floor rather than whiplash breaking her neck.

With this being such a devastating event, Andrew Garfield felt that he needed to ignore Emma Stone for a week in order to get in the correct emotional state. As Jerome Chen, the visual effects supervisor on both Amazing Spider-Man movies, pointed out, the quietness felt stronger when it came time to shoot Gwen’s death compared to the other scenes directed by Marc Webb.

In an interview, the Zombieland actress recalled what Andrew Garfield told her while filming on set. She mentioned,

 ‘‘I don’t want to see you! When you come into that scene, you have to pretend like you are dead to me.’ It was very quiet. The sets were almost always very quiet. Marc [Webb] likes to work very focused. So it was very quiet, a totally closed set. And I just remember Andrew coming in and just crying uncontrollably. It was hours of that. That was grueling but powerful.”

Also considering the fact that Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone started dating in 2010 and were still together during the filming of The Amazing Spider-Man 2. So it wasn’t just Garfield who had to avoid a co-star; he also had to avoid his then-girlfriend for seven days! That effort paid off because while The Amazing Spider-Man 2 received mixed reviews overall, that scene is one of the sequel’s outstanding moments.

The reason behind Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone’s break-up

Andrew Garfield, 39, and Emma Stone, 33, were one of Hollywood’s golden couples for four years. They began dating in 2011 while filming The Amazing Spider-Man as love interests Peter Parker (Spider-Man) and Gwen Stacy.

The relationship lasted four years, ending in October 2015, a year after their final Spider-Man film together, The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Although the pair did not publicly announce their breakup, a source stated it was most likely due to Andrew Garfield’s harsh method of acting.

Despite their breakup, the two actors remain, good friends, while reflecting on The Amazing Spider-Man franchise.
