Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone met while filming "The Amazing Spider-Man" and started dating in 2011. He told MTV in 2012 that the two got close while filming. "We got on really well as people, in between [takes]," he said. "That was the fun stuff: In between, we'd just mess around, and I felt, 'Ah, this is different.' I wasn't really aware what was happening in the screen test. She keeps you on your toes, and that wakes you up. That was the beginning."
The two stayed together for a few years but amicably split in 2015. "There was no drama, they've been apart while working. They still care about each other," a source told People at the time, adding: "They still have love for one another. They are on good terms with each other and remain close."
They remain fans of each other, and Garfield was the first to cheer for Stone when she won her Golden Globe in 2017. He gave her a standing ovation at the award show and said on Vanity Fair's "Little Gold Men" podcast: "We care about each other so much, and that's a given, that's kind of this unconditional thing. There's so much love between us and so much respect [. . .] I'm her biggest fan as an artist. So for me, it's been bliss to be able to watch her success and watch her bloom into the actress that she is. And it's also been wonderful to have that kind of support for each other. It's nothing but a beautiful thing."
