Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are having the ''best time'' together.

The couple - who were said to have called time on their three year romance last month - reportedly never ended their relationship for good and are enjoying each other's company once again now they have made space for one another in their busy schedules.

The flame-haired beauty and Andrew, 31, sparked speculation that their split wasn't permanent when they stepped out holding hands in Malibu, California, earlier this week.

A source told E! News: ''It was always a 'break' due to schedules. They have been really busy, so they finally have had time to see each other again. They care for each other and always have the best time when together.''

Emma, 26, isn't short of praise for her 'Amazing Spider-Man' co-star and recently credited the British actor for being ''so poetic.''

After Diane Keaton told her Andrew compared working with her to ''diving into a thrilling, twisting river and never holding on to the sides'', Emma responded: ''He is such a poet. But that's the way he writes in general. So I hear it and of course my heart swells up. And I also know that he writes things like that on a daily basis. He's so poetic.''
