When Andrew Garfield, who shoots his web out for a second go-round as Peter Parker in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ this weekend, had to shoot the finale of the movie, he didn’t even want to think about it, he told MTV News.
Death scenes are always hard to shoot, but we can imagine that for Garfield, it was an especially difficult process filming the scene depicting the death of Gwen Stacy, played by Garfield’s real-life girlfriend, Emma Stone.
’It was horrible,” Garfield said of that portion of the shoot. “Absolutely horrid. I don’t want to think about it. It’s the worst. Your body doesn’t know it’s not real.”
Stone, for her part, told us while at the “Be Amazing Volunteer Day” at I.S. 145 in Queens that she was “morbidly looking forward to it.”

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ is in theaters now.
