Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield back together

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield back together

Six weeks after taking a break from their three-year relationship, The Amazing Spider-Man stars Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield have reunited. The two actors were spotted in public together holding hands at Malibu Farm and Sushi Park in Los Angeles.

“Emma and Andrew are a great couple who have been apart for work,” a source revealed to People magazine.

The source added: “They are still seeing each other. Nothing major happened between them while he was away other than a long and forced separation.

“Andrew has been incredibly busy and so has Emma. But the sparks are still there.”

News that Arizona-born Emma and her British love had called time on their relationship came in early April. However the new reports come after Emma being spotted greeting Andrew’s parents on Saturday, after they attended a London screening of Emma’s new film Aloha.

It also follows pictures which showed the Birdman actress carrying a bag with Andrew’s name on it – which for fans of the two was no doubt hope that they were still in touch and possibly looking at reconciling.

The pair had previously not been seen together since early January, and Andrew was also noticeably absent from this year’s Golden Globes and Oscars, where Emma was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

For much of the year Andrew was away filming Martin Scorsese’s new film Silence in Taiwan. “He’s thrown himself into the project to the detriment of all else,” a source told People. “But it’s too early to say the relationship is over.”

“Emma understands his work anxieties – it’s why she originally pulled out of Cabaret last year and only did it this year – but they’re both taking a break from seeing each other, They’re both a slave to their schedules.”

Birth Date: November 6th, 1988
Birth Place: Scottsdale, Arizona, USA

The physically stunning actress Emma Stone first made her mark among American audiences as an ingenue, via her involvement in the frat-boy comedy Superbad (2007). The movie told of a couple of geeky misfit teenagers who reveal their desperation to join the “in” clique by bringing alcohol to a local party. Prior to that, Stone was a member of the cast of the extremely short-lived action-adventure series Drive, a kind of amalgam of Vanishing Point, Death Race 2000, and Two-Lane Blacktop, about a group of motley misfits recruited to participate in a life-or-death cross-country race.

The Help: Mississippi as a Character

The Help: Mississippi As A Character

“The South is an oppressive, complicated, beautiful, tragic, loving place all in one bundle. And being there as a group, like we were in summer camp, really bled into these performances and into the film.” —Tate Taylor, director

“The Help” is set in Mississippi, and although a fictional story, it takes place during one of the most important eras in our country’s cultural history—the changing times of the 1960s.

Director and screenwriter Tate Taylor knew from the beginning that “The Help” had to be filmed on location in Mississippi. He wanted to capture the period of time in a very honest and entertaining way and that could not be accomplished on a movie studio back lot. Read more

All About Friends with Benefits Movie

All About Friends with Benefits Movie

Friendship is a four-letter word.

Dylan and Jamie certainly aren’t in a settling-down frame of mind. When New York-based executive recruiter Jamie trains her considerable headhunting skills on luring hotshot LA-based art director Dylan to take a dream job in the Big Apple, they quickly realize what kindred spirits they are. They’ve each been through so many failed relationships that they’re both ready to give up on love and focus on having fun.

So when Dylan relocates to New York and the pair start hanging out regularly, they share plenty of laughs over a twin belief that love is a myth propagated by Hollywood movies. That’s when these two begin a deliciously sexy, decidedly grown-up experiment. Could these two fast friends – who are successful, unattached, and scornful of commitment – explore new terrain?

If they add casual “no emotions” sex to their friendship, can they avoid all the pitfalls that come with thinking about someone else as more than just a pal?

All About Friends with Benefits Movie

As two people weaned on the disappointing promises of romantic comedies, Dylan and Jamie shouldn’t be entirely surprised when their bold move becomes a bawdy, sexy ride into uncharted territory, exposing much more of themselves than they ever thought they’d get to see.

Friends with Benefits is an American romantic comedy film directed by Will Gluck and starring Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis. The film features a supporting cast that includes Patricia Clarkson, Jenna Elfman, Bryan Greenberg, Nolan Gould, Richard Jenkins and Woody Harrelson. The plot revolves around Dylan (Timberlake) and Jamie (Kunis), who meet in New York City and naively believe adding sex to their friendship will not lead to complications. Over time they begin to develop deep mutual feelings for each other, only to deny it each time they are together.

Emma Stone: I’m an enormous ‘Spider-Man’ fan

Emma Stone: I'm an enormous 'Spider-Man' fan

Emma Stone went from layman to expert in both publishing sensations it helps bring to Hollywood this summer and next.

Pierre had not read Kathryn Stockett of “help” before auditioning for the lead role in the drama of a white woman who rocks the establishment by the Deep South chronicle of a hard black servants in the early 1960.

And before winning the female lead in “The Amazing Spider-Man” Peter knew the superheroes of Marvel Comics Sam Raimi mainly for three big screen “Spidey” adventures and insights from the web-slinger on the memories.

“I knew Spidey costume for Halloween and dressing and erasers and pencils and notebooks,” Pierre, 22, said in an interview at the conference last week fans at Comic-Con, where she and star Andrew Garfield joined the filmmakers reveal images of the 2012 summer blockbuster waiting.

“I knew that every boy at school was obsessed with Spidey. I saw all the films of Sam Raimi, but I did not read the comics until I got involved. And now I’m a fan a ridiculously huge “Spider-Man.” This is what happens. This character is one of the most incredible, I think, ever written, the world of comic books and the literary world. It’s just a inspirational character. I think that’s probably why it is super hero’s favorite president.”

Pierre has been on a steady rise in Hollywood, co-starred in the 2007 teen romp “Superbad” and 2009 horror comedy “Zombieland” and charming the audience with his first big screen lead in the Last year “The Scarlet Letter” twist “Easy A”.

After supporting roles in back-to-back romantic comedies with last week’s “Friends With Benefits” and this week’s “Crazy Love stupid”, the profile of Stone shoots Superior August 10 debut of “The Help” , Viola Davis co-star, Bryce Dallas Howard and Octavia Spencer.

Pierre recalled as being a novice on “assistance” as it had been on “Spider-Man.” She was about to meet with the filmmakers for the first time and happened to give his mother a call.

“I have a meeting tonight to ‘help,” Peter said to his mother. “And she screamed so loud my eardrums burst. She said,” You must read this book! You need to read this book now ! My mother, as she fainted, she was so out of it.”

“Help” should be a summer hit taken by the female fans of the bestseller, a rarity in a season dominated by tales of action and comedy aimed primarily young men.

As Gwen Stacy, the love interest for Garfield, Peter Parker in July of the next “Spider-Man” reboot, Stone will be in the thick of a fan-boy frenzy. Yet the fact that Peter is a skinny, shy young jumping to a hero by the bite of a mutant spider made him an idol for everyone, not just comic books and action fans, Pierre said.

“Batman is perfect, but it’s not a rich guy build a suit. And Superman very well, but it’s not a guy untouchable as we have ever seen on this planet,” said Peter. “This is someone you can go to school and work with, all of a sudden, one day is able to fight against evil superhuman. It’s pretty amazing. I understand now. Really.”

Spider-Man' love triangle revealed

The latest movie in the franchise will star newcomer Andrew Garfield and two leading ladies.

It looks like Spider-Man is going to have not one but two love interests in the upcoming reboot of the franchise. The word from those close to the production says that Peter Parker, played by Andrew Garfield, will be posed with a problem familiar to fans of the comic: will he choose the red-headed Mary Jane Watson or blonde Gwen Stacy?

Emma Stone & Mia Wasikowska Rumored For ‘Spider-Man’ Roles
Reports that Sony executives have narrowed down the search for Spider-Man’s newest love interest to an elite group of actresses first emerged last month, but now it appears that the web is widening to include two other prominent players. Entertainment Weekly has the scoop that “Zombieland” actress Emma Stone and “Alice in Wonderland” star Mia Wasikowska.

Emma Stone

21-year-old Emma Stone is rumored to be the front runner for the part of Mary Jane. Fun Fact: she’s actually a natural blonde. She dyed her hair red for her star-making turn in “Superbad” on the recommendation of producer Judd Apatow and the look just stuck. She was most recently seen in “Easy A.”

Mia Wasikowska

Mia Wasikowska has been everywhere lately — starring in Tim Burton’s trippy spectacle “Alice in Wonderland” and she played the precocious daughter in the indie hit “The Kids Are All Right.” And she’s reportedly in the running to play Gwen Stacy. She’ll turn 21 on October 14, and next year you can see her in a new adaptation of “Jane Eyre.”
