Andrew Garfield learns to use choose his words carefully, thanks to his girlfriend and costar Emma Stone.

The buildup to the upcoming superhero movie, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, has been an exciting one, especially for the lead actress Emma Stone, who remained under media scrutiny for her “cute” antics.

The 25-year-old star is a diehard fan of former pop group Spice Girls and she got a chance to talk to two members, Mel B and Mel C, for the first time in her life during her promotional tour in Australia and England.

However, this time, Andrew Garfield stole the limelight from his girlfriend at a recent Q&A session when he made a misguided sexist comment after a kid asked him how Spiderman got his costume.

Garfield explained that the superhero sewed it himself — which, he said, is “kind of a feminine thing to do.”

It was then that Stone interrupted him to ask exactly how it was “feminine”, prompting a hasty defense from the actor, who had by then realized that he had committed a major gaffe.

"I would say that femininity is about more delicacy and precision and detail work and craftsmanship - like my mother, she's an amazing craftsman," said Garfield, drawing a broad mischievous smile from Jamie Foxx, who also stars in the second installment of the Amazing Spider-Man.

"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."
