People: Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield still have ‘romantic’ feelings

The World  Premiere of 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2'

I generally believe that Emma Stone is a sort of no-drama celebrity. She doesn’t do crazy things, she’s not falling out of nightclubs, she’s not dating a string of inappropriate dudes. She reportedly spends her free time baking. But at some point, we have to acknowledge that Emma has some drama with Andrew Garfield, right? How many times have they broken up and gotten back together? It feels like it’s happened several times already. They’re one of those couples – they stay on good terms following a breakup, and then they backslide and get back together, rinse and repeat. We’re in another one of those cycles.

Following their 2015 breakup, Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have stayed close — but could they be rekindling their relationship?

“They never stopped caring about each other,” a source who knows Stone tells PEOPLE in the magazine’s new issue. “Even when they split, Emma and Andrew had great love and respect for each other.”

The pair — who split after nearly four years together — sparked rumors of a reunion since the Oscar-winning actress, 28, visited the actor, 34, in London during a break from filming The Favourite back in May. Garfield had been starring in the 25th anniversary revival of Angels in America at the National Theatre, which ended its run Saturday.

“She was in the audience watching the show,” an eyewitness tells PEOPLE. “She left backstage with him.”

While one Stone source says “the feeling between them is still romantic,” others say the Amazing Spider-Man costars are simply supportive exes and friends. Another Stone source says they haven’t rekindled their relationship and are focused on their careers. “They care about each other and encourage the other’s career,” the first source says. “They’re great friends.”

The source believes the two would only start dating again “if the timing is right.”

I never hated Emma and Andrew together, and it was clear throughout the awards season – where they were both nominated for multiple awards – that they were still on good terms. I applaud them for their maturity and I think it’s sweet that Andrew especially still has so much fondness for Emma, like she’s “the one who got away” for him. All that being said: don’t backslide! Just be friendly exes. Date other people, see what’s out there. I’m very interested to see if Emma ends up dating another actor, or if she Hathaways her love life and ends up married to some random normal dude.

    I like both of them separately and together.

  2. Renee says:

    I disagree. I don’t think there was any drama. And contrary to popular belief, they only broke up once. It’s just that every time they’re seen together, there’s headlines & gossip in the media that creates the illusion that they broke up and got back together 5 times already

  3. Mari says:

    Andrew is a bit cringey in interviews but I like them too

  4. Abel says:

    I feel like there’s this never been a big dramatic ending moment, and they keep seeing each other as they are in the same industry, so they end up romantically involved. Andrew seems so soppy and romantic, so I can see why this happens.

  5. Nicole says:

    I honestly don’t think there was drama here. I think their careers were taking off and in separate directions. I really just think timing and distance did them in.
    If there was drama they wouldn’t have given the interviews they have so soon after the breakup. They seem to be still in love with each other.
    If so I hope they mature and make it work. They seemed like a good pair

    • Renee says:

      They’re like the real life Mia & Sebastian in La La Land. Hopefully their story will have a better ending

  6. Amide says:

    They seem more like friendly exes a la Hugh Grant & Liz Hurley to me, rather than a pair with passion for each other.😶

  7. Lucy says:

    Aw, I was slightly bummed over their breakup. I do appreciate the lack of drama, though. All the best for the two of them, whether they end up together or not.

  8. Squiggisbig says:

    I liked them together. I thought they only broke up the once though?

    It’s going to be hard for either of them to date anyone else if their friendship with each other comes with the constant “are they or aren’t they” stories.

    • G says:

      So true on that last point. I like them both, but together they remind me a bit too much of (far more attractive and successful versions of) my ex and I. Sad as it is, we’ve never JUST been friends. When, a while after we broke up, I found someone I was serious about, I had to cut ties. I’m really glad that relationship is over, and I honestly would never want to go back to it, which makes the situation all the more strange.

      Clearly I’m projecting.

  9. Ana says:

    Maybe it’s not backsliding. It’s always seemed like they broke up because their schedules kept them apart for a long time (especially with Garfield filming Mel Gibson and Scorsese’s movie) so I don’t think their relationship in itself has an issue. Maybe they can find a way to make it work, it’s clear they have a strong connection.
