“We got on really well as people in between [takes],” Garfield, 28, tells MTV News. “That was the fun stuff. In between, we’d just mess around, and I felt, ‘Ah, this is different.’ ”
“She keeps you on your toes,” he says, “and that wakes you up.”
But the couple first proved their compatibility before Stone even landed a role in the film. “We read a couple of scenes together,” Stone recalls of their initial screen test, which she calls a sure-fire way to tell if two actors will work well when the cameras are rolling.
“You can sense if you guys have a kind of chemistry or rapport right away,” she says. “No matter what the relationship is, whether it’s a love interest or not.”
And it looks like Spider-Man filmmakers saw the sparks fly between Stone and Garfield.
“Obviously, I was so happy that she got the role and decided to do it,” Garfield adds. “Those are the days I’d look forward to.”
