After three years as one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are taking a break from their relationship. The 31-year-old actor and his 26-year-old love haven’t been spotted together since the beginning of the year, and Andrew is currently in Taiwan shooting Martin Scorsese’s Silence.
“ He’s thrown himself into the project to the detriment of all else,” a source told People. “But it’s too early to say the relationship is over.”
Andrew was also noticeably absent from this year’s Golden Globes and Oscars, where Emma was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
“Emma understands his work anxieties – it’s why she originally pulled out of Cabaret last year and only did it this year – but they’re both taking a break from seeing each other,” the insider added. “They’re both a slave to their schedules. This time last year they were privately discussing marriage.”
Emma and her British boyfriend, who co-starred in The Amazing Spider-Man movies – have been dating since 2011, and are considered one of the sweetest and most solid young couples in Hollywood. There’s every chance they will reconcile when Andrew finishes filming in May.
“It’s one of those situations where only Andrew and Emma quite know if they’ll pick up where they left off or they’ve separated,” the source said, with another claiming that the split is temporary and not official.
“They are just separated for work,” the second insider said. “Andrew is overseas. They are both busy with their careers and have not seen each other.”
Emma is also busy over the coming months. Her new film Aloha, directed by Cameron Crowe and co-starring Bradley Cooper, is coming out in May, and her latest collaboration with Woody Allen, Irrational Man, is scheduled for release in July.
The couple were last photographed together in New York City’s West Village on 7 January. Representatives for Andrew and Emma have not commented on the reports.
