State the obvious and incur Andrew Garfield's wrath!
The actor and Emma Stone, his Amazing Spider-Man 2 co-star and girlfriend of nearly three years, hit up the film's red carpet premiere in London Thursday, where they spoke separately to local outlet ITN News. Stone, 25, was the first to answer a hypothetical—and somewhat silly—question about which animal's abilities she would like to inherit after being bitten. (That's how Garfield's comic book character got his web-slinging abilities, just FYI.) "I would probably want to be a bird," the actress said.
Coincidentally, Garfield chose the same option. "A bird! An eagle!" the 30-year-old shouted. "I'd like to get bitten by an eagle and then I'll have a nice fly around the world and I'll s--t on bad people."
When the reporter spoke to Garfield later on, she told him, "Your girlfriend gave the same answer."
"Who's my girlfriend?" he snapped back, annoyed at the idea of having to discuss his romance publicly. "You're making an assumption about my personal life, and my personal life is not public property."
"Isn't it?" the reporter rebutted. "Nope," Garfield told her.
The reporter then pointed out, "You're in a massive film with her."
Garfield lowered his guard a bit and replied, "We're acting together, yes."
It's not like Garfield is a bad guy—he just wants to keep his private life private. In fact, the day before the premiere, the actor proved how kind he is when he suited up as his Marvel alter-ego and played basketball with children from Kid City, a Brixton-based organization in the London' Lambeth borough.
Garfield and Stone will present at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards—just don't ask them if they're dating.
