Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield have reportedly split again, and this time for good. The actors have dated on-and-off for four years, after meeting while shooting one of those unnecessary Spiderman movies. You know, the ones where no one shifted upside down in the rain?
Us Weekly reports that this parting of Hollywood ways had occurred months ago, but that the former couple are still friends. Hence the delay in frenzied True Love Is Dead headlines. A source told the magazine, “They still have a lot of love for one another and they are on good terms with each another and remain close. It just wasn’t working.”
The couple was on a break last Spring. Reports at the time claimed Garfield’s immersion in a role – he grew a beard and was on set in Taiwan shooting Martin Scorsese’s Silence – was the reason behind the initial separation. In the months after this supposed mini-split, the couple were still hanging out together and were spotted eating pancakes together. It was all very confusing for the tabloid press.
Don’t expect an official announcement anytime soon. Stone is very protective of her private life after years in the public eye and refuses to discuss relationship matters. In a recent interview with the Wall Street Journal she said: “I never talk about this stuff for this exact reason — because it’s all so speculative and baseless. I understand the interest in it completely, because I’ve had it, too. But it’s so special to me that it never feels good to talk about, so I just continually don’t talk about it.”
Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports that Garfield is not so silent on the issue. He was spotted leaving a bar in Sydney with an unidentified female when someone shouted at him, “Where’s Emma Stone?” Garfield replied, “We’re not together anymore.”
