During a recent Q&A about their new film "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," Stone challenged her real-life boyfriend when he called sewing "feminine."
Asked by a child how Spider-Man got his costume, Garfield, 30, replied that he made it after taking sewing and needlepoint classes.
"It's kind of a feminine thing to do," he added, "but he really kind of made a very masculine costume."
Stone, 24, piped up, asking, "It's feminine, how?" -- prompting Garfield to respond, "It's amazing how you took that as an insult."
However, he immediately began to backpedal, and even threw in a personal story about his family.
"I would say that femininity is about more delicacy and precision and detail work and craftsmanship — like my mother, she’s an amazing craftsman. She in fact made my first Spider-Man costume when I was three. So I use it as a compliment. To compliment the feminine not just in women but in men as well. We all have feminine in us, young men."
