There's no denying their on-screen chemistry in The Amazing Spider-Man – just check out that kiss. But Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone weren't just faking it for the cameras.

"We got on really well as people in between [takes]," Garfield, 28, tells MTV News. "That was the fun stuff. In between, we'd just mess around, and I felt, 'Ah, this is different.' "

So what attracted him to Stone, 23, whom he began dating last year?

"She keeps you on your toes," he says, "and that wakes you up."

But the couple first proved their compatibility before Stone even landed a role in the film. "We read a couple of scenes together," Stone recalls of their initial screen test, which she calls a sure-fire way to tell if two actors will work well when the cameras are rolling.

"You can sense if you guys have a kind of chemistry or rapport right away," she says. "No matter what the relationship is, whether it's a love interest or not."

And it looks like Spider-Man filmmakers saw the sparks fly between Stone and Garfield.

"Obviously, I was so happy that she got the role and decided to do it," Garfield adds. "Those are the days I'd look forward to."
