Andrew Garfield Gets In Trouble With Girlfriend Emma Stone For His Comments on Femininity - EXCLUSIVE

It’s a hot topic after actress Kirsten Dunst suggested being feminine meant staying at home cooking and cleaning.

And actor Andrew Garfield certainly brushed a few feathers with his views on femininity as he got into a heated debate with girlfriend Emma Stone recently.

The 30-year-old British actor was speaking at a Yahoo kids’ Q&A with the cast of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 when he was asked a question about how Spider-Man makes his suit.

He replied that Spider-Man sewed the suit himself, which he reckoned was a ‘feminine’ task.

“He made it. He made it with his bare hands. He sewed it, he took some sewing classes and some needle work,” he said in the video above.

“It’s kind of a feminine thing to do, he made a very masculine costume out of a very feminine [task].”

At which point, his on and off screen girlfriend, 25, questioned why sewing was a feminine task.

“It’s feminine how?” she asked.

The pair’s co-star Jamie Foxx gasped – as did most of the audience – before Andrew questioned why she was insulted by his remarks.

“It’s feminine in the sense… It’s amazing how you took that as an insult,” he said.

“I’m not taking that as an insult, I’m asking how it’s feminine,” she replied.

The actor then managed to explain himself to Emma and the audience, who was seen nodding along to his comments.

“It’s feminine because I would say that femininity is about more delicacy and precision and detailed work and craftsmanship, like my mother, she’s an amazing craftsman,” he explained.

“She in fact made my first Spider-Man costume when I was 3 so I use it as a compliment, not just in complimenting women but in men as well. We all have feminine in us, young men.”

It looks like he managed to worm his way out of that one!

The couple have been dating since meeting on the set of the first film in 2011 but keep a very low profile and refuse to answer questions about their relationship.
