Emma Stone is heading back to school to prepare for her role as the studious "Gwen Stacy" in the upcoming Spider-Man reboot.
Stone has been hitting the books to play Spider-Man/Peter Parker's love interest Stacy, a devoted school science student. And the 22 year old reveals British actor Andrew Garfield, who will star as the webslinging superhero, has joined her for lessons – so he too can play a convincing academic.
She tells MTV.com, "Andrew and I went and learned about science yesterday. Gwen really likes science, so we learned about science. I was home-schooled, so I never went to chemistry class in a traditional setting like Gwen is into. That was really beneficial."
And science classes aren't the only change in store for Stone – she's had a makeover before filming begins on the currently untitled comic book film.
She adds, "I went and did hair tests, because I have blonde hair now since Gwen has blonde hair. My natural hair is blonde, so it's kind of nice. I looked in the mirror and said, ';Oh my God, it's me again, it's been so long!' We're finalizing the visual stuff. And I think we'll start actually rehearsing, because we start shooting in two weeks."
