‘Emma kept on texting me. She was like, “Are you in this new Spider-Man film?”‘  Andrew began. ‘And I was like, “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”‘ 

Andrew and Emma both starred in both Amazing Spider-Man films, with the first being released in 2012 and its sequel in 2014. The co-stars went on to date for four years in real life, after casted as love interests in the Marvel movies.  

‘She was like, “Shut up. Just tell me.” I’m like, “I honestly don’t know” — I kept it going, even with her,’ the Tony Award winner continued, laughing. ‘And then she saw it. She was like, “You’re a jerk.”‘

Andrew wasn’t the only star to return in the latest Spider-Man movie. He was accompanied by Tobey Maguire, 46, the original casted Spider-Man. 

‘There were moments where I was like, “God, I hate lying.” I don’t like to lie and I’m not a good liar, but I kept framing it as a game,’ he said. 

‘And I kept imagining myself purely as a fan of that character, which is not hard to do.’ 

Andrew went on to talk with Josh about how he would feel from a fan’s point of view.

‘I would want the actor to do an incredibly good job at convincing me he wasn’t in it,’ he said. ‘And then I would want to lose my mind in the theater when my instinct was proven right. That’s what I would want.’ 

Although Andrew and Emma split up in 2015, just a year after the sequel to Amazing Spider-Man was released, the co-stars still remain great friends. 

‘We care about each other so much, and that’s a given, that’s kind of this unconditional thing,’ Andrew said on Vanity Fair’s Little Gold Men podcast in 2017. ‘There’s so much love between us and so much respect … It’s also been wonderful to have that kind of support for each other.’
