Andrew Garfield on filming the romantic scenes with Emma Stone
The Hollywood couple that people still miss even after years of their breakup is Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone. The two instantly fell for each other after meeting on the sets of The Amazing Spider-Man. With time, the two developed a great friendship and were seen gushing around one another. They were often seen laughing and joking together on set, and their bond went beyond the realm of mere colleagues soon after that.
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,”
It was also reported that he would surprise her with small gestures of affection, such as leaving handwritten notes or sending her favorite flowers. Thus one can say, Garfield’s wooing of Emma Stone was a combination of thoughtfulness, sincerity, and a genuine connection that Stone recognized.
It was love at first sight for Andrew Garfield
The clip that went viral a couple of months back accurately described how Garfield felt when Emma Stone walked into the room. People on the internet were swooning over how meticulously the actor described Stone as a person. He said,
“She was like a shot of espresso. She’s like being bathed in the sunlight. She’s incredibly energetic and enthusiastic and she had this sense of play and fun which was incredibly exciting”.
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.
