Emma Stone Dated These Two Actors Before Meeting Her Fiancé
On Wednesday, Academy Award-winning actress Emma Stone announced her engagement via social media to boyfriend Dave McCary, a segment director on Saturday Night Live. The two have been dating since 2017.
As one of today’s top actresses, Stone is often in the spotlight and has been seen with some famous actors on her arm over the years. Two in particular made it to ‘serious relationship’ status.
Though not much was reported on the romance, Stone dated actor Kieran Culkin (yes, Macauley’s brother!) after meeting in 2009. The relationship was short-lived, with the couple parting ways in 2011.
According to Bustle, the two met on the set of the 2009 film Paper Man. The movie starred several Hollywood heavy hitters, including Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Daniels, and Lisa Kudrow. Stone had yet to hit super stardom, which is probably why her coupling with Culkin did not receive much press at the time.
Stone’s most high-profile romantic relationship was with Andrew Garfield. The two met while filming The Amazing Spider-Man in 2010, and started dating the following year after they both split from their significant others (in Stone’s case, it was Culkin).
Garfield expressed feeling an instant connection with is co-star. “We got on really well as people, in between [takes],” he said of Stone, according to Cosmopolitan. “That was the fun stuff: In between, we’d just mess around, and I felt, ‘Ah, this is different.’ I wasn’t really aware what was happening in the screen test. She keeps you on your toes, and that wakes you up. That was the beginning.”
