Andrew Garfield had no problem delivering a convincing romantic performance with real-life and onscreen love Emma Stone.
Access Hollywood’s Scott “Movie” Mantz caught up with the actor at the “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” New York City premiere where he talked about co-starring with Emma in Spidey’s new big screen adventure.
“She’s a good actress,” he said of Emma. “It’s hard not to have chemistry with such a great actress!”
Andrew said he’s always amazed when working alongside her.
“I think anyone who ever works with her goes, ‘Holy gosh darn! What just happened?’” he continued.
The latest installment of the superhero franchise takes an even more romantic turn for Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, something which Andrew credits Emma for delivering.
“It’s a testament to Emma… and what she brings to this film is… a woman who is following her own path and living her destiny just as much as Peter Parker/Spider-Man is living his,” he said of the movie’s romantic story. “[She’s] the most beautiful role model for women and young girls, and no better actress could be playing that part.”
In one week, the whole world will have “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ at its fingertips. Even now, many people across the planet have already seen the superhero sequel, thanks to its early international release. Many of the fans who haven’t seen the film yet can smell danger in the air. The collective consciousness’ spider-sense is tingling. Something big and bold is about to happen in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” thanks to the electric combination of Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx and the other all-star actors.
For now, the cast and crew involved in the “Amazing Spider-Man” sequel are keeping their lips sealed on the specifics. But star Andrew Garfield, without delving into spoiler territory, made it clear that he’s very excited about what happens in his second film as the web-slinging hero. “It’s a big story,” he told MTV News at the “Amazing Spider-Man 2″ New York City premiere. “I’m glad we did it. It’s brave and it’s important.” Did what, Andrew? What’s so brave and important? What are you driving at? The actor, to his credit, kept those secrets firmly in the bag. “You don’t want people to know, walking in, what they’re going to be experiencing, as much as possible,” he teased. “We’re not in the age anymore where ‘The Sixth Sense’ can come out and people don’t know that, in fact, Bruce Willis has been dead the whole time.” He winced: “Sorry if I ruined ‘The Sixth Sense’ for you. Case in point, my big mouth!” Whatever it is that’s coming up, Garfield is very proud of the work that he and his collaborators accomplished in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” “We have to keep pushing the envelope with these movies,” he said. “You know, we’ve seen a lot of these [superhero] movies come out recently. We want to make sure we’re bringing a fresh mix to the audience.” “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ swings into theaters on May 2.

Andrew Garfield suits up while hitting the red carpet at the premiere of his new movie The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on Thursday (April 24) at the Ziegfeld Theater in New York City.
The 30-year-old actor surprised a ton of underprivileged kids and rode a school bus with them to the premiere that afternoon. What a nice thing to do!
Earlier in the day, Andrew joined his cast members Emma Stone, Dane DeHaan, and Jamie Foxx, as well as director Marc Webb, for a town hall special at the Sirius XM Studios.
How cute is this man though everyone?!
