A source close to Hollywood dream couple Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield has claimed the pair are “on a break”, days after rumours of the actors’ relationship breakdown stunned the internet.
According to the source’s comments in PEOPLE magazine, the three-year relationship between the Superbad stunner, 26, and The Social Network actor, 31, is on the back burner while Garfield is overseas shooting.
“They are just separated for work … Andrew is overseas. They are both busy with their careers and have not seen each other,” the insider said.
Garfield is on location in Taiwan filming Martin Scorsese’s new movie Silence and was absent from Stone’s arm at the recent Golden Globe awards and the Oscars, where she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
While Garfield is overseas, Stone has been in Los Angeles hanging out with her brother after finishing filming for her new film, Aloha, starring Bradley Cooper.
Despite concerns the pair could be close to a split, PEOPLE’s source is adamant they’re on top of things.
“He’s thrown himself in the project to the detriment of all else … But it’s too early to say the relationship is over.”
“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 taking a break from seeing each other,”
“They’re both a slave to their schedules. This time last year they were privately discussing marriage.”
“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.”
