Watch Emma Stone Totally Own Andrew Garfield for a Sexist Spiderman Comment

The actress questioned her boyfriend and 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' co-star on his views about what it means to be feminine

At a recent Q&A promoting The Amazing Spider-Man 2, actress Emma Stone calmly (and effectively) called out her co-star Andrew Garfield for a comment he didn’t seem to realize came across as sexist.

When a kid asked Garfield how Spiderman got his costume, the actor explained that the superhero sewed it himself — which, he said, is “kind of a feminine thing to do.” Stone, who happens to be Garfield’s girlfriend, interrupts him to ask, “It’s feminine how?”

Garfield immediately goes on the defensive, replying, “It’s amazing how you took that as an insult.” Stone remains calm, saying, “No, I’m not taking that as an insult, I’m asking how it’s feminine.”

Watch above as a very frazzled Garfield begins to backpedal.
