The undeniable chemistry the two shared both on and off screen is what attracted people, even more, to watch the movie on the big screen. Therefore, naturally, the pair were constantly hounded to confirm their relationship status by media outlets both directly and indirectly. One such indirect approach was to ask the actors about the love scenes the two had to film for the movie. Speaking on the topic Garfield stated,

“I actually felt more safe when I was swinging around because you have a very strong safe pair of hands holding you up,”

He then further stated,

“The romantic scenes are free falling you know, as they should be. They have to be spontaneous, and free and terrifying because that’s what first love is.”

But his ally in the adventure, Emma Stone, made it a comfortable and easy experience for him. He said,


“So that and working with Em, ‘cos she’s such a great actress, you get lost in what she’s doing, so you kind of have to follow and keep up with that. So it was easy for me to achieve that,”

These lines were enough to make people realize what true love really feels like. Although the couple broke up long back in 2015, the love they have for one another still is unwavering. The actor, in an interview with Teen Vogue, recounted how he remembered the La La Land actress’s entrance into his life, as well as the sets. Garfield recounted,

“It was like I woke up when she came in,–She was the last person to screen-test, and I was so bored of it by then that I was mucking about – I’d been pretending I was Tom Hanks or Seth Rogen.”

Therefore, it was clear the actor was head over heels for Stone from the moment he met her. Though their romantic relationship eventually came to an end, their enduring friendship is one to remember.
