The stunning Hollywood actor Emma Stone revealed that, despite being busy with film, if there’s one thing that’s on the top of her to-do list right now, its theatre, reported Hindustan Times. “I really want to.

I know it’s not Hollywood, but I want to do it either in New York or in London. I’d really love to do a play,” says the 25-year-old star, who is currently looking forward to her upcoming, superhero film, in which she has acted with her boyfriend, Andrew Garfield. In an interview, she spoke about how it feels working with him and why she considers the film set an interesting place.

Does working with Andrew keep you on your toes?

Yeah, that’s always been the case with him for everybody. You never know what he’s going to do. I don’t think even he knows what he’s going to do. As an actor, that’s one of the greatest gifts he has. He’s very prepared, and he knows so much about his character

How did Hollywood happen?

I fought for it. I moved out when I was 15, went to Los Angeles and started auditioning. I guess I really wanted to be an actor. It’s been quite a journey. It’s been very cool.

How do you keep a professional relationship with co-stars you don’t get along with?

It depends on the person and it depends on the movie. Every film has a different energy and different dynamics. A film set is a strange and interesting place. It can be really cool and (everyone on it can) feel like a family, or it can be totally divided. You can never tell.

The stunts seem difficult in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. What was it like performing them?

In this movie, there’s a lot of swinging, which I love. I don’t have a lot of physical strength and just the idea of lifting weights makes me want to strangle somebody. I love to dance and do yoga, I don’t love throwing punches. So when I have to do to something like that, it gets difficult. But I really like anything acrobatic.

How different is Gwen Stacy from Mary Jane Watson? Is she more possessive?

She’s different. Gwen understands that Peter (Parker) needs to be Spider-Man. MJ was in love with Spider-Man; Peter came after that. With Gwen, it’s the other way around. Also, she really gets the fact that he needs to save people.
