“Then, when I saw him on your show, he was a total pro at denying it,” he joked, referencing when the actor visited The Tonight Show in September. “But…he had to get there.”
Miranda wasn’t the only person Garfield didn’t tell about his appearance in the film. When Emma Stone, whom Garfield dated for four years and who played his Spider-Man’s love interest Gwen Stacy, asked if he was at all involved with the new project, the actor remained tightlipped.
“Emma kept on texting me,” Garfield said on Josh Horowitz‘s Happy Sad Confused podcast. “She was like, ‘Are you in this new Spider-Man film?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about.'”
When the movie was released later in December, however, Garfield said that Stone wasn’t too pleased with his antics. “She saw it,” Garfield said, “and she was like, ‘You’re a jerk.'”
