Emma Stone Dishes on ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’
Emma Stone on reinterpreting Spiderman mythology, being called a trailblazer.
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.
Today is the day! “The Amazing Spider-Man” is now released in theaters everywhere!
Any Spidey fan worth their tingling Spidey senses knows that today is the big day: The Amazing Spider-Man is finally spinning its way into cinemas.
Most loyal fans of our friendly neighborhood webslinger probably already hit up the midnight showing to see Andrew Garfield don the infamous spider suit. Others will go tonight to watch Emma Stone, Rhys Ifans and the whole gang get in on the action.
And you might leave the theater thinking, How the heck did they do that?! That’s where we come in, with five behind-the-scenes secrets straight from the cast.
1. What’s the Secret to Good Chemistry?! “Chemistry is kind of an indefinable thing,” the film’s resident love interest, Emma Stone, explained to E! News’ Alicia Quarles. “That’s either there or it’s not. It’s kind of instantaneous or it isn’t. So it was nice that we had that kind of thing from the beginning.”
That’s one answer…But the other half of the awww-worthy onscreen romance tells it differently:
“It was hard because she’s just not a pleasant person,” Andrew joked about his on and offscreen GF. “I always just felt like I have no interest in spending time with this person, let alone looking at this person. It was hard to achieve any form of friendship relationship…She’s convinced everyone that she’s this thing when she just isn’t…She’s a bitch.”
How feisty! Don’t let Andrew fool you though, the twosome definitely provides competition to Spider romances of the past (hear that, Mary Jane?!).
2. Was Everyone in Love with Spider-Man?! The short answer: No. Sure, Andrew has been gushing nonstop about his love of the insect-loving superhero, revealing, “I’ve been wanting to be Spider-Man since I was 3—and I’m still not Spider-Man, I’m the actor playing him—but I read the series, I loved the movies, all of it I’ve been a huge fan of since I was very, very young. It’s meant a lot to me.”
But costar Denis Leary had other feelings. He admitted he’s “never been a Spider-Man” guy though his family are huge fans. Which is precisely the reason he didn’t tell his wife about the role, fearing she would pressure him into it.
We’re sure he has a soft spot in his heart now for Peter Park’s alter ego!
Forget feeling like you only have big shoes to fill for a role. In “The Amazing Spider-Man” Emma Stone takes on the role of Peter Parker’s love interest Gwen Stacy, a character who quite literally popped off the comic book page.
“Obviously I’m not as voluptuous or buxom as Gwen in the comic books,” Stone told MTV News. “It was kind of a little bit more brought down to earth.”
Despite the bust adjustment, Stone acknowledges that Gwen’s look in director Marc Webb’s film adaptation stays close to the character’s style in the comics.
“I had seen a lot of Gwen,” Stone said. “Kym Barrett, the costume designer, I think was really trying to stay true to that, but bring that kind of cartoonish element into it.” Barrett has previously done costume design for “Romeo + Juliet,” “The Matrix” trilogy and last year’s “The Green Hornet,” among others.
Stone also commented on Gwen’s recognizable blond hairstyle that her character dons in the film, describing the black headband and ponytail as “classic Gwen.”
Stone wasn’t the only one who appreciated Gwen’s classic updo. “The Amazing Spider-Man” producer Avi Arad — whom Stone refers to as “the gatekeeper of Marvel” — would be “so happy” when she would have her hair in Gwen’s signature style on set, Stone said.
Stone isn’t the only castmember who has commented on her character’s style for the film to MTV News. Stone’s co-star and Spider-Man himself, Andrew Garfield, also spoke about some of the trouble that came with wearing the iconic blue and red suit and what changes could be made moving forward.
“It’s like you have to body shoehorn yourself out of it,” Garfield said about his suit. “But it looks good.”
Andrew Garfield (The Social Network) is the new face of Spidey in The Amazing Spider-Man, which opens in 3D, 2D, and IMAX theaters everywhere on Tuesday, July 3rd. Taking over the iconic role from Tobey Maguire, Garfield’s portrayal of Spider- Man is conflicted, emotional, sarcastic, and dark. The actor, who was recently nominated for his role as Biff in Death of a Salesman, recently joined his co-star, Emma Stone (Superbad, Easy A) at a press conference in New York City. Stone plays Peter Parker’s girlfriend, Gwen Stacy. Along with other members of the press, I recently had a chance to sit down with the two young, talented actors to discuss their new film, The Amazing Spider-Man.
Garfield was asked if he received any feedback from Tobey Maguire regarding his performance as Spider-Man. “To my knowledge he hasn’t seen the movie. I got feedback from the casting. When I got cast he sent an email to producer, Matt Tolmach, immediately and was very, very generous and it made me feel like I could take the torch in confidence.”
Stone was asked about how she became involved in the film. “At first I had met with producer Laura Ziskin two weeks after the reboot was announced for Mary Jane. And I had always wanted to play Mary Jane. I thought Mary Jane was so great and then a couple months went by and they called me again and said we’d like you to audition but the part is Gwen Stacy, and I was like uh, I don’t know who Gwen Stacy is because I hadn’t read the comic books growing up. So then I looked into the story of Gwen and I just fell in love with Gwen’s story because it is so incredibly epic and incredible in the way it affects Peter. Mary Jane is another character that I love obviously. So I took the opportunity to audition and met Andrew at the audition and go to act with him for the first time and he is one of the best actors I’ve ever worked with and I instantly knew how much I could learn from him and that really, really drew me to that challenge to rising to meet him every day was something really exciting and a huge growing and learning experience for me so it was a combination of things.”
Garfield, a self-proclaimed mega-fan of Spider-Man, was asked what it was like to meet Spidey’s creator, Stan Lee. He stated, “Stan Lee wasn’t real to me. He is too iconic to be real to me. So it wasn’t like I was in a room with a human being, it was like I was in a room with a wax figure. It made no sense. So I wasn’t nervous I was just one of those annoying people who just stared. He’s amazing. He’s everything that you think he is. It was beautiful. When you really understand what he’s given to us, he’s given so many kids hope and joy and he cannot be thanked enough for that. It was like being in a room with Mickey Mouse. It was bizarre.”
Stone was asked what about Spider-Man from the female perspective makes Spider-Man a beloved character. “He’s the only teenage superhero! A lot of times when you start reading comic books you are a kid or a teenager so he’s the most identifiable. Instantly you can relate to him. Not to mention he’s bullied which is huge, for a girl or boy everyone has experience with something along those lines and the fact that he is bitten by a spider is wishful because he can fight back to the bullies which he wasn’t able to do before. It’s symbolism for kids. They have so much power within them to speak out, to stand up for themselves, and to stay unique and to stay true to who they are, just as Peter does. He finds those heroic elements in him with or without his powers which is really what I think instigates Gwen and Peter’s first interaction. It is when he’s standing up for a kid who’s being bullied and takes the fall for a kid who is being humiliated in front of a group of people. He displays those heroic qualities long before he becomes a superhero.”
Stone was asked about capturing Gwen’s iconic look. “Costumes were done by Kym Barrett. We worked together to make sure Gwen felt like Gwen but also made sense in the real world. Obviously I’m a lot less voluptuous than Gwen unfortunately so it didn’t really go to those heights but the signature headband and the thigh highs and the coats. All of that was important to stay present, right down to the make-up. In hair and make-up we really tried to attain that as well but still keep her realistic and still keep her earthbound. I’m not a supermodel or an unattainable looking person so that element of Gwen was a bit different from the comics in some ways. She was such a beauty queen in the comic books and I’m a lot more ‘next door’ than she might be.”
