Amazing Spider-Man's Emma Stone Talks Gwen Stacy (Exclusive Video)
Posted 07.02.12 by Chris
Playing the love interest in a tentpole comic book movie can be a daunting challenge for any actress but for Emma Stone it was a challenge she accepted.
Before taking the role of Gwen Stacy in The Amazing Spider-Man, which opens at midnight tonight, Sam Raimi's Spidey trilogy was the extent of Stone's knowledge of the legendary comic book character. Reelz asked Stone if she was hesitant about being part of the worldwide phenomenon that is Spider-Man.
Yeah, I think there was hesitation then I tried to get my head out of my own ass and be like 'OK, not necessarily going to happen to you, you're not that interesting.'
At least one person thinks Stone is that interesting — her co-star and current real-life boyfriend, Andrew Garfield, whom Stone called a real charmer. The actor, best known for his role in The Social Network, returned the compliment, saying Stone is a brilliant actress and person.
Definitely a charmer.
The Amazing Spider-Man was written by James Vanderbilt and Alvin Sargent. Rhys Ifans, Campbell Scott, Annie Parisse, Irrfan Khan, Embeth Davidtz, C. Thomas Howell, Chris Zylka, Martin Sheen, and Sally Field also star.
