The couple began their relationship soon after Garfield split with his long-term girlfriend. Moreover, it started at the beginning of playing boyfriend and girlfriend in the superfluous, premature, Spider-Man reboot. It’s all just a little too convenient, although celebrities are notoriously lazy in their partner selection and hook-up with co-stars all the time.
In what may or may not be a prolonged, cynical attempt to boost Spider-Man ticket sales, here are Garfield and Stone in New York’s Chelsea and the West Village January 8, 2012. They’re either in full locationship mode or they’re putting on a show for the paparazzi.
