Stone’s notion about gender pay gap

Emma Stone is the latest actress to speak out about wage disparities between male and female actors. She recently revealed her opinion about gender pay gap. She said, "If my male co-star, who has a higher quote than me but believes we are equal, takes a pay cut so that I can match him, that changes my quote in the future and changes my life," according to BBC News Beat.

Emma was mad once she found out the amount she was being paid as opposed to her co-actor, and Sienna Miller stated she rejected a show as a result of her lower pay than her co-actor. The Oscar-winner said that there should be no payment cuts to ensure equality in business, and men and women should get the same wages.

The 'Spider-Man' couple is under the spotlight

The famously dating couple, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield have definitely attained luminary status with their movie “The Amazing Spider-Man.” The 28-year-old super-talented actress was reportedly seen with her "Spider-Man" co-star Andrew Garfield in London. According to the Daily Mail, it seems "Emma Stone and ex-boyfriend Andrew Garfield are growing close once again, after she was apparently seen making multiple trips to watch his play, Angels In America, at London's National Theatre."

A source told The Sun, “Andrew’s feelings for Emma never softened and now they are growing close once again.” It seems the highest-paid actress and her former lover might very well consider getting together again.
