Emma Stone Talks Spider-Man..
Emma Stone has revealed that she is desperate to please Spider-Man fanatics with her portrayal of the hero’s love interest, Gwen Stacy. In fact, the star is too nervous to even read comments about her casting on the internet for fear of being rejected by die-hard fans.
Talking to MTV, the actress said: “There’s a part of me that really wants to please people that love Spider-Man or Gwen Stacy and want her to be done justice. I hope they’ll give me licence to interpret her my way. But that fanbase, I’m one of them, so I completely understand why they would be judgemental of certain things.”
The comic book movie, which stars British actor Andrew Garfield (the slightly cooler one from The Social Network) as the web-spinning superhero, has seen Stone return to her natural blonde hair colour to play Gwen. “I looked in the mirror and said, ‘Oh my god, it’s me again, it’s been so long!” she commented.
Stone also revealed that she and Andrew have been having science lessons in preparation for the project, with filming due to start in two weeks.
“Gwen really likes science, so we learned about science. I was home-schooled, so I never went to chemistry class in a traditional setting like Gwen is into. That was really beneficial.”
