Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield Turn Pap Attack Into Charity

Well ain’t that clever…

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are putting their clever noggins and quick wit to good use. When The Amazing Spiderman couple was greeted by paparazzi coming out of lunch, they each held up signs for charities that they support.

The couple was dining at a New York City restaurant on Saturday afternoon when they noticed the paps lingering outside. Thinking quickly, they grabbed some sharpies and a couple paper take-out bags, scribbling down a message.

Their note, held up in two parts – one by Emma and one by Andrew – shines some attention on the websites of two charities.

“We just found out that there were paparazzi outside the restaurant we were eating in,” it read. “So… Why not take this opportunity to bring attention to organizations that need and deserve it: www.wwo.org and gildasclubnyc.org. Have a good day!”

Wwo.org and gildasclubnyc.org – which are likely getting some heavier traffic than normal this morning – are websites for the Worldwide Orphans Foundation and Gilda’s Club New York City.

According to WWO’s website, they are a foundation aimed at transforming “the lives of orphaned children and help them to become healthy, independent, productive members of their communities and the world.”

Gilda’s Club New York City, on the other hand, is an organization launched by comedian Gilda Radner as a means of social and emotional support for community members affected by cancer.

It’s news like this coming from the celebrity universe that gives us hope for humanity moving forward…

Emma and Andrew co-starred in this summer’s blockbuster hit, The Amazing Spiderman, which has grossed a domestic total of over $260 million. A sequel – which they are both attached to star in – is scheduled for 2014.
