Keep in mind, this interview was done in March, before Garfield and Stone reportedly broke up.

Calling out Garfield's admiration for Stone, Keaton repeated a review the actor gave about her acting abilities.

"Andrew Garfield said, 'Working with Emma was like diving into a thrilling, twisting river [Stone laughs] and never holding on to the sides. From the start. To the end. Spontaneous. In the moment. Present. Terrifying. Vital. The only way acting with someone should be,'" Keaton recited to Stone. "My God. I mean, what did you feel when you heard such a dream-come-true observation?"

Stone assured her, "Yes, he does. He's so poetic."

As for the type of person Stone is drawn to when it comes to relationships and friendships, she says "the more unique the better."

"When you feel that a person is being true to how they want to look or what their face is, I think there's something about the acceptance of oneself that I can feel from people," she said. "That tends to be what I'm attracted to."
