Andrew Garfield seems to be head-over-heels for girlfriend and Spider-Man co-star Emma Stone, and you can even tell that by his talk about their professional relationship.
He said of working with Stone in The Amazing Spider-Man 2: “She’s a great gal, and, as we all know, a singular talent, like a completely unique, singular talent.”
“She just was born like a purebred, in terms of you just say ‘go’ and she goes,” he said. “It’s infuriating because I can’t keep up with it. So it’s beautiful to work with such an incredibly talented and wonderful person.”
But the actor isn’t just intimidated by his hot girlfriend. He’s still starstruck! “Famous people scare me. I get really nervous around famous people. I overcompensate [with] how unimpressed I am, which is completely and utter rubbish. So I’m a fan.”
He then said it’s less unnerving when guys like Jamie Foxx are your co-stars. He said of working with Foxx in The Amazing Spider-Man 2: “But of course, with someone like Jamie who’s not only this presence, but such an incredible talent, multi-talented, who I’ve been a fan of for ages, is just a great man, a great person, and a gentle, kind, good soul and good spirit, and then suddenly it’s like, let’s shoot some hoops, have a chat, meet his daughter.”
“It’s that weird myth of fame, of actors and musicians or whatever being any different from anyone else,” he explained. “It’s that weird thing that I still [get] excited: Oh they’re on a pedestal, they’re better, they’re better, they’re just better. It’s just not the truth. I love busting that myth any chance I get.”
