Here’s Emma Stone and boyfriend Andrew Garfield on the cover of Teen Vogue Magazine’s August 2012 issue for which Garfield is mostly a prop. Included is the joint photo shoot and there’s a joint interview although only Stone’s quotes are included here.
Emma on what drew her to the par in The Amazing Spider-Man: “The idea of it was incredibly daunting. But I really liked the scenes that they sent me, and when I looked into the story of Gwen Stacy, which is epic and tragic and incredible, I loved it so much. Something was telling me that I needed to be her. And then I tested with [Andrew], and that sealed the deal. Because meeting Andrew, and working with Andrew… It was one of the greatest experiences I’ve ever had… Really, the way he is as an actor is just completely different from anyone I’ve ever worked with. I never went to school for this, so getting to be a sponge off certain people is very vital to me.”
On what drew her to the stage: “For me, it was all childhood anxiety and panic attacks. Being able to do improv, to just make things up on the spot and be funny or sad or whatever I was feeling, and to have it be OK, was super helpful. To this day, that’s why I love it so much.”
On the banality of always changing her hair colour: “I have liked being blonde lately because I was blonde when I was little. So whatever I’m going through is easier because I look in the mirror and I look like I did when I was a kid. But people do always ask that. They ask who is my style icon, what’s the one thing that I can’t leave my house without. I’m always like, ‘My clothes!’ I can pretty much leave without anything. It’s fine as long as I’m not naked.” - via Teen Vogue Magazine.
