Just when it seemed like the pain of the Andrew Garfield/Emma Stone split had faded, Garfield had to reopen the wound. In a roundtable for The Hollywood Reporter, the 33-year-old actor and his fellow interviewees were asked (among more serious questions about their craft), which one actor they would take with them to a desert island. While Jeff Bridges, Dev Patel, Casey Affleck, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Mahershala Ali picked the likes of Orson Welles and Bruce Lee, Garfield picked ex-girlfriend Stone.
Garfield's exact words in the roundtable to the desert island query: "Emma Stone. I love Emma. She's all right. She can come." Of course, a British man saying "she's all right" roughly translates to "She's the love of my life and I've made a huge mistake."
Just deepening the tragedy that was their parting: The two of them reportedly split because of distance and work, meaning that maybe they did still really want to be together.
Garfield and Stone parted ways last October after almost four years of dating (they met on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man). Since their split, they had been spotted together, giving shippers a glimmer of hope. Stone and Garfield had reportedly taken a break in April of 2015 since Garfield was in Taiwan shooting Silence. A source told People that the ills of a long-distance relationship had taken its toll on the couple. "They’re both a slave to their schedules. This time last year they were privately discussing marriage," the source claimed. Noooooo.
To make matters even sadder, Stone said in her interview as the cover girl for the November issue of Vogue that Garfield is "someone I still love very much."
Here's hoping these two can reunite some day soon, just the two of them, on that desert island.
