Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield – or “Stonefield” as they were affectionately called – were one of Hollywood’s adorable couples. The two fell in love while playing romantic interests on camera, and had a relationship that paparazzi loved to follow. Although the couple kept much of their relationship private, we were interested to know more about how they got together, and why they split. Here’s 10 things you may not know about Emma and Andrew’s romance.
10. How They Met
Emma and Andrew met in 2010 when Emma came in to audition for a part in The Amazing Spider-Man. Andrew had already been cast as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, and the director was looking for the film’s Gwen Stacey. Andrew recalled the fateful day that Emma came in to test for the role. “She was the last person to screen-test, and I was so bored of it by then. And then she came in, and it was like diving into whitewater rapids and having no desire to hang on to the side,” he recalled. The director, Marc Webb, took notice of the obvious chemistry between the two and knew Emma was the right choice for the part.
