Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are done. The longtime couple split up a couple of months ago, but are on good terms with one another.
"There is definitely still love for each other there," a source tells E! News. "They remain close and are on good terms."
Schedules in both actors' lives made maintaining a relationship difficult. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield spent time apart earlier in 2015, which caused many to speculate they'd broken up back then.

Not long after that, however, the two were spotted together in public on numerous occasions, looking very much together.
In the July/August issue of the Wall Street Journal magazine, Emma Stone did her best to avoid talking about a split--that may have already happened at that time.
"See, I never talk about this stuff for this exact reason—because it's all so speculative and baseless. Once you start responding—once you're like, 'No, that's not true'—then they're like, 'Well, if we push enough, we'll get a comment, so let's see what else we can make up.' I understand the interest in it completely, because I've had it, too. But it's so special to me that it never feels good to talk about, so I just continually don't talk about it."
"There's probably some rebelliousness that comes out in me after all these stories and people texting you for weeks about something that, for the most part, is not true. But even when it's false, I would rather just let it be false," she added.

There's no debate over true or false this time. Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are over. Fans of both are likely mourning the end of what appeared to be a fairy tale romance--but face it. Fairy tales don't often come true.
Given the crazy lives both Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield live, it appears a magic act would be necessary to keep the romantic fires alive.
