"I still really like acting, but I feel like if a day came ...," the actress said of potentially stepping behind the camera.

Emma Stone may only be 22 years old, but she's already had one of the busiest years of her life, starring in three films (Crazy Stupid Love, Friends With Benefits and The Help) this year and taking on a key role in the anticipated Spider-Man reboot.

The industry vet, best known for her roles in Easy A, Superbad and Zombieland, opened up about working with The Social Network's Andrew Garfield in the upcoming Marc Webb film, The Amazing Spider-Man. "Andrew is one of the most giving actors I've ever worked with," she said in an interview with Teen Vogue.

Stone, who plays Peter Parker's first love Gwen Stacy in the feature and starred in the little-watched Fox drama Drive, praised her co-star. "If I needed to get to a place of love or sadness in a scene, he'd leave messages on my phone to replay, or slip in lines off-camera for a different reaction than what was scripted. He gave me so much to react to," she recalled. Rumors have been swirling that Stone and Garfield are a couple.

The actress, who stopped by San Diego's Comic-Con earlier this summer along with Webb, Garfield and Rhys Ifans to tout their 2012 summer film, remembered her experiences in the cavernous Hall H. "It's my favorite place; I'm dead serious," Stone shared. "Don't you find people who are passionate about something -- it doesn't matter what it is, unless it's like, murder -- kind of amazing?"

Stone said that her passion was "change," whether that meant that she would ultimately drift from being in front of the camera to behind it as a producer or whatnot, that is something that she seems to be open to. "I still really like acting, but I feel like if a day came ...," she began.
