Emma Stone has revealed she and Andrew Garfield have had to go back to school in preparation for the new Spider-Man movie.
Emma, who plays Peter Parker's love interest Gwen Stacy in the new film, told MTV she was home schooled so she had never had a proper science class like the ones she has been experiencing in rehearsals for the film.
Emma said: "Andrew and I went and learned about science yesterday. Gwen really likes science, so we learned about science. I was home-schooled, so I never went to chemistry class in a traditional setting like Gwen is into. That was really beneficial."
The 22-year-old actress is excited about going back to her roots for the role.
She revealed: "I went and did hair tests, because I have blonde hair now since Gwen has blonde hair. My natural hair is blonde, so it's kind of nice. I looked in the mirror and said, 'Oh my god, it's me again, it's been so long!'"
Emma admitted there was pressure on the Spider-Man reboot because of the huge fan base the comic character and film trilogy has - but she is trying not to think about it.
She said: "The way I have to approach it, and I think Andrew would agree, is just like any other movie."
It just happens to be an exponentially bigger budget. And there are harnesses I'm going to have to use in this one. That's the only difference. Just the harnesses.
"I'm sure it's a different story for Andrew, because Spider-Man is so iconic, which is not to take anything away from Gwen, but for the most part, the approach I'm trying to take so I won't psych myself out is to approach it like anything else."
