Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield for Teen Vogue August 2012

Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield are Teen Vogue's cover stars for the August 2012 issue. Emma wears Louis Vuitton on the cover and Andrew wears Calvin Klein.

On what drew them to the Spider-Man movie:

ANDREW GARFIELD: It took me a month to decide if I wanted to do the screen test, but ultimately it was a no-brainer. I've been a fan of Spider-Man since I was a kid, and I just knew that if I got the chance, there was no possibility of saying no. But there's always a pressure about it, of wanting to honor the thing that you care so much about. It's like a great relationship; it's like taking care of a child, or—
EMMA STONE: You're so intense!
AG: No, I'm not. You get it.
ES: [Laughs] I get it.

EMMA STONE: The idea of it was incredibly daunting. But I really liked the scenes that they sent me, and when I looked into the story of Gwen Stacy, which is epic and tragic and incredible, I loved it so much. Something was telling me that I needed to be her. And then I tested with him, and that sealed the deal. Because meeting Andrew, and working with Andrew—cover your ears, Andrew, earmuffs—
ES: It was one of the greatest experiences I've ever had.
AG: [Laughs] Yes! Fooled her.
ES: Really, the way he is as an actor is just completely different from anyone I've ever worked with. I never went to school for this, so getting to be a sponge off certain people is very vital to me.

TEEN VOGUE: And what was your first impression of her?

ANDREW GARFIELD: It was like I woke up when she came in. She was the last person to screen-test, and I was so bored of it by then that I was mucking about—I'd been pretending I was Tom Hanks or Seth Rogen. And then she came in, and it was like diving into white-water rapids and having no desire to hang on to the side. Throughout shooting, it was wild and exciting. I couldn't help but try to stay with her, keep pace with her, and not let her get away. [Laughs] Like an animal preying on a smaller animal, but a wily smaller animal.
EMMA STONE: [Giggling] Shhh. That is enough.
TV: In this movie, you play high school students. What were you two actually like in high school?
ES: Well, I was homeschooled in seventh and eighth grades, and I moved out to L.A. when I was fifteen.
TV: So, no prom?
ES: I did go to prom with a friend. Mostly we just sat there like, "So, this is prom."
AG: My school in England didn't have prom. But I did go to a mixed school, girls and boys, so that was exciting. I got into quite a lot of trouble, but I was also very navel-gaze-y as well. Broody.
