Why did Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone break up?

There’s a lot of speculation that the reason behind Andrew and Emma's breakup was the fact that they were dealing with the difficulties of a long-distance relationship. When it was reported in 2015 that the two were taking a break from their relationship, he was filming a movie called Silence in Taiwan, while she had recently attended the Golden Globe and Oscar award ceremonies solo.

Emma had been nominated in the supporting actress categories for Birdman, and it seemed that Andrew wasn’t able to be there with her due to his work schedule. A source told People at the time, “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."
