"Amazing Spider-Man" stars Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone have reportedly decided to take a break from being a couple as both are busy with their hectic work schedules.
Garfield is currently busy filming in Taiwan for Martin Scorsese's new film "Silence," and Stone was previously busy with the production of "Aloha", giving them very little opportunity to spend time with each other.
"He's thrown himself in the project to the detriment of all else," a People magazine source said, but added that it was too soon to say if the relationship was over for good.
"Emma understands his work anxieties – it's why she originally pulled out of Cabaret last year and only did it this year – but they're taking a break from seeing each other," the source explained.
"They're both a slave to their schedules. This time last year they were privately discussing marriage."
Sources also noted that chances are high the couple will get back together once Garfield finishes filming sometime in May.
"It's one of those situations where only Andrew and Emma quite know if they'll pick up where they left off or they've separated," the source said, while another insider confirmed that the split was just temporary.
"They are just separated for work. Andrew is overseas. They are both busy with their careers and have not seen each other."
However, fans aren't too optimistic that Garfield and Stone will do a Ross and Rachel from "Friends" and get back together. Many feel that once a couple goes on a break, a break up will surely follow.
Rumours of a rift between the two, who were last photographed together in early January, first emerged when Stone attended the Golden Globes and the Oscars without her beau.
Garfield has always refrained from addressing his relationship with Stone, saying although he understood everyone's interest in his romantic life, he was not comfortable sharing the details with the public.
"I understand why people are interested in the personal lives of people who are in public more than those that aren't. I do understand that," Garfield told E! News. "I have a deep understanding of that. Just for me, it's not something that I...I don't want it in my life, so I do everything I can to deflect it and say no to it, because I think people forge that, 'Oh, this is my life, and this is your life, and that's your life.'"
