Dueling Accents With ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Stars Emma Stone, Andrew Garfield

by Meredith Goldberg-Morse

Is there anything Emma Stone can’t do? Not only does she continually steal scenes from costars like Ryan Gosling (and Ryan Gosling’s Abs), but she manages to look smokin’ hot as a redhead and a blonde—no easy feat. Turns out the first-ever MTV Trailblazer is harboring yet another talent: a pretty darn accurate imitation of British beau Andrew Garfield’s accent. We caught up with the “Amazing Spider-Man” star to find out how her British accent measures up to Andrew’s American one.

“I’ve been working on it,” Emma admitted. “I do it all the time, I’ve been working on it all the time, and it’s so annoying.”

Andrew admitted that he’s impressed with his girlfriend’s aptitude, though he would never acknowledge this, lest it go to her head.

“It’s not bad, I know. I would never say this to her face, but it’s not bad,” he admitted. “I always try and discourage whenever she does it, but between you and I—and obviously the people who watch this interview—she can do it pretty well.”

When asked about the possibility of showcasing her accent in a future role, Emma was enthusiastic, to say the least.

“I’ve never done it,” she confirmed, “and now all I want to do is a British accent.”

Perhaps hinting at a bit of accent jealousy, Andrew joked, “Yeah, I think it would be an interesting thing…to see her fall flat on her face.”

Not to worry, Andrew, we still love you both equally. Regardless of how you pronounce the word “can’t.”
