Andrew Garfield: Emma Stone Keeps Me on My Toes

Updated

Jackson Lee/Splash News Online

There’s no denying their on-screen chemistry in The Amazing Spider-Man – just check out that kiss. But Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone weren’t just faking it for the cameras.

“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.’ ”

So what attracted him to Stone, 23, whom he began dating last year?

QUIZ: Guess the Spring Fling!

“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.”
