With their new movie "The Amazing Spider-Man" set to hit theaters on July 3rd, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the August 2012 issue of Teen Vogue magazine.
The 23-year-old actress looked darling in a Louis Vuitton dress while her co-star beau suited up in a Carven jacket and Calvin Klein tie for the Josh Olins shot front page while also partaking in a joint Q&A session for the publication's feature article.
Highlights from Emma and Andrew's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Teen Vogue!
On what she was actually like in high school:
"Well, I was homeschooled in seventh and eighth grades, and I moved out to L.A. when I was fifteen."
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 her other upcoming movie, "Gangster Squad":
"Yes, it's based on a true story about a mob boss, played by Sean Penn. I'm the girl on his arm, but then I start fooling around with one of the cops who's trying to catch him."
On her heroes:
"My mom, for so many reasons—for her bravery. For everything."
On what drew him to the "Amazing Spider-Man" project:
"It took me a month to decide if I wanted to do the screen test, but ultimately it was a no-brainer. I've been a fan of Spider-Man since I was a kid, and I just knew that if I got the chance, there was no possibility of saying no. But there's always a pressure about it, of wanting to honor the thing that you care so much about. It's like a great relationship; it's like taking care of a child, or—"
On his first impression of Emma:
"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. And then she came in, and it was like diving into white-water rapids and having no desire to hang on to the side. Throughout shooting, it was wild and exciting. I couldn't help but try to stay with her, keep pace with her, and not let her get away. [Laughs] Like an animal preying on a smaller animal, but a wily smaller animal."
On if he had any high school sweethearts:
"I had an unrequited love. She actually quoted a Spice Girls song to ask me out and then dumped me after about four hours."
On his heroes:
"Her mom. And my mom. [Points to Emma] She's a hero of mine, because she is who she is.... And, of course, Ryan Gosling."
