Andrew Garfield & Emma Stone really did break up ‘a few months ago’


Well, it looks like that exclusive reporting from Australia’s KIIS radio station was right on the money. KIIS reported that Andrew Garfield has been in Sydney, working on a Mel Gibson-directed WWII film. Mel and Andrew went out drinking and Andrew was getting friendly with a random blonde. When some bystander was like “Dude, where’s your girlfriend?” Andrew was all, “Dude, we broke up.” Andrew and Emma Stone have been dating for four years, although I really believed they took a break earlier this year, around March-April. Andrew came back to town, they got back together, went on a few pap strolls and then they broke up for real towards the end of the summer. As in, Andrew and Emma were part of The Summer of Splits and we’re only learning of it now.

It’s over — for good this time. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield have split after four years together, a source confirms to Us Weekly. The now exes, who took a break this past April, called it quits “a couple of months ago.”

“They still have a lot of love for one another and they are on good terms with each another and remain close,” the insider tells Us of the Amazing Spider-Man costars. “It just wasn’t working.”

Stone and Garfield took a brief break from their romance earlier this year after they had been fighting a lot, another source told Us at the time, explaining that Garfield’s Martin Scorsese flick Silence was keeping him particularly busy filming in Taiwan at the time. Weeks later in May, however, the two reunited and were spotted holding hands and eating pancakes together.

People Magazine confirms the split as well, with sources saying that they broke up “a few months ago.” A source tells People, “There was no drama, they’ve been apart while working. They still care about each other. They still have love for one another. They are on good terms with each other and remain close.” NO DRAMA? How could there be no drama? We’re talking about Andrew Garfield, the most morose and sensitive boy in the world. Of course there were tears, long-winded speeches about authenticity and privilege and, yes, drama.

Anyway, I can’t wait for the die-hard Emdrew stans to pitch their hissy fits about this. Those stans exist and they were SO mad that outlets reported on Emma and Andrew’s “break” earlier this year. Who will Emma date now? She has a lot of options, I think. But… it’s not like Emma is one of those women who can’t be alone. I suspect Emma will take some time and just be by herself before she jumps into something new.

    Let’s hope it won’t be too old or a douche, or both.

    I do not understand why there are people out there who think she is above him.

    She was okay with him leaving another partner to become hers and it is not like they dated a couple of months and she realized it would not work. They were together four years. They are more alike than most think but she just has better PR people.

      people have read their interviews so they obviously know them both personally.

    • teacakes says:

      “She was ok with him leaving another partner to become hers”

      I’m not exactly sure what’s wrong with breaking up with someone you’ve fallen out of love with, to date someone else. I thought the problem happens when people DON’T do that i.e. they cheat on one partner with another!

      • DonatellaVersayce says:

        But he didn’t leave her for a while. He always gushes over how he feel for Emma like as soon as they met, and talks non-stop about how she was like magic and sunshine and blah blah blah which everyone just eats up, and forgets that dude had a longtime girlfriend at the time. Yeah , he broke up with her eventually, but it’s pretty obvious he was already attaching himself to Emma firmly before he did so, all signs point to him cheating, and that’s what makes them getting together like they did so shady.

      • teacakes says:

        @DonatellaVersayce – didn’t Brange do the same thing, gush over how amazing the other was as soon as they met/how they connected emotionally while he was still married? And yet they are beloved on CB….. You say ‘signs’ point to Garfield cheating, well, what’s the proof that he did? Having feelings for another person isn’t cheating, even if he gushed later.

    Gotta give it to Star magazine.

    They called this out, as well as Halle Berry/Martinez long before everyone else.

    • Neah23 says:

      Well everybody was calling out Halle Berry/Martinez from the beginning.

      • Jegede says:


        That does not count IMO, cause everybody calls out everybody. Even Kate and Will!

        And for ‘everybody’ who called it out, there were other ‘bodies’ who thought they would more likely stick it out come hell or high water as a strategy.

    • Mimi says:

      Right! Those type of mags are mostly bs, but I’ve noticed that the juiciest gossip comes from them!!! And TMZ of course!

  6. Talie says:

    According to the Sony emails, she can be a pill too.

  7. Kiki says:

    This is why you shouldn’t never get back together with your ex. There is reason why you are called an ex. I am not surprise Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield broke up, but this taking a break thing is just utter nonsense. You broke up or not.

    Now that Halle Berry and Olivier Mariptinez split and Emma And Andrew broke up, I am waiting for Molly from the Saturdays to be splitsvill with David Gandy. I am sorry for the glee of break ups but who’s not surprised with hollywood couple breaking up?

      It might not be the rule, but sometimes the on/off thing is necessary and it works. Some people just are drama fueled, even more if they’re actors and think they have the right to live wearing their heart on their sleeves. I’m not an artist but I tend to have on/off relationships, I’m a volatile, impulsive person, and I’m attracted to impulsive passionate guys too. So I kind of understand why on/off dynamics might not be just plain f*ckery but something you just can’t help. What for other people is a normal little fight and they talk it over and move on, to us is breaking up an engagement and make up (passionately) a couple of months later. I’ve had on/off relationships that worked just fine, other that didin’t. just like other people’s relationships, without the drama, that is…Is it f*cked up? I don’t know, but it’s the only way for me…

      • Kitten says:

        Yeah, I don’t believe in hard and fast relationship rules like “you must never get back together with your ex”, I prefer to approach things organically.

        I think people are complicated and the dynamic in a relationship is unique to the personalities involved. My BF and I have been together for over a year and we’ve had a couple “breaks” already where we give each other a few days to cool off and get our thoughts together before we communicate again. Of course when we live together this will be harder to do but for now, it’s what works for us. We’ve found that if we don’t allow each other a bit of space to pause and meditate then things escalate and there’s no meaningful communication or progress, just emotional reactions and yelling.

      • teacakes says:

        @Kitten – “I think people are complicated and the dynamic in a relationship is unique to the personalities involved.”

        Thank you for saying this. People don’t live their lives according to textbook rules when it comes to interactions with other human beings. It’s something we’d all do well to remember.

      • Kiki says:

        Maybe I don’t understand, are you love lives are just a mess. But when I was in a relationship, we broke up and that’s it. I want nothing form him or do with him. I guess we can be friends bit an ex is still an ex.

    • Holmes says:

      “…this taking a break thing is just utter nonsense. You broke up or not.”

      +10000. In my experience, “taking a break” is suggested by the party who wants out, full stop, but doesn’t have a jumpoff yet. That, or they want to cheat without TECHNICALLY cheating. Be an adult and just BREAK UP.

      • Lama Bean says:

        I have noticed a theme among some of my friends who break up, then realize it was not a good idea, then get back together and get married. And they’re happy.

    Shannon Woodward is smug as fk today. He and Emma started their fling when he was still very much with Shannon. I don’t know the press didn’t jump all over that story, i guess because Shannon remained so classy and silent about it. It must suck to see your ex in the papers looking loved up with his new girl, especially knowing he was cheating on you with her.

    I never got why people freaked out over them as a couple anyway. They had no chemistry in Spiderman. I think one of my favourite couples right now is Melissa McCarthy and Ben falcone. They have been together 18 years, married for 10, 2 kids, totally supportive and collaborative in each other’s work, withstood the challenges of fame especially as Melissa hit the stratosphere while Ben is very much reliant on her for work, and – lets be honest, it is good to see a man stand by his wife when she packs on the weight like Melissa did. They really seem like a happy couple.

    I love Hollywood PR; ” No drama! No drama! They still totally love each other!!”. In real human world when a relationship of several years break up, usually there’s some drama. As long as no one gets violent or self-destructive, it’s fine. It’s human. No wonder actors or so messed up when they’re not allowed to break the illusion…ever.

    • WinnieCoopersMom says:

      I would love it if a HWood couple broke up and were atleast honest about it. Doesnt mean they have to divulge private details. “Emma and Andy have broken up. It was shitty and they both are upset. Please respect their privacy as they try to move apart and not text each other after a couple drinks at 1AM. They will each eventually find hot and more suitable partners to share life with.” I think everyone would respect that so much more.

  10. Nikki says:

    Hey, if Andrew wants to go picking up girls with Mel Gibson, Emma’s way better off without him. I think she can do lots better.

  11. teacakes says:

    Their chemistry was the only good thing about those stupid Spider-Man movies that no one wanted, and with her character dead by the end of movie 2, it’s just as well Sony scrapped plans for no. 3.

    As for their relationship……eh. They dated, they broke up. I don’t get why some of you are so invested in the fact that he broke up with another woman to date her, that’s pretty much the only honorable thing to do when you fall out of love with someone and in love with someone else.

    And this whole imagining of the ex as being smug over this is silly. I’d be ashamed of myself if I was invested enough to be smug about a four-years-ago ex breaking up with the girl he dated after me.

    • Louise says:

      Oh yeah, it’s a totally shameful thing to feel smug when your ex breaks up with the starlet he cheated on you with, the second he finally hits the A list after you’d supported his ass for years when he was an up and coming actor!!! Oh the disgrace to be a human being!

      Get real, teacakes. This isn’t a self help forum.

    Come on men, this is a perfect time, a break up around the end of their spiderman’s roles!
    Fake, fake, fake!
