Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield, the young Hollywood couple and leads in "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," used their star power Tuesday to promote some of their favorite charities while being trolled by paparazzi in New York City.
Garfield, 30, and Stone 25, held hand-written signs in front of their faces while walking around the city as photographers snapped away, according to the New York Daily News
"Good Morning! We were eating and saw a group of guys with cameras outside," the sign Stone held read. "And so we thought, let's try this again. We don't need the attention, but these wonderful organizations do."

Garfield's sign listed the links to the websites for Autism Speaks, Youth Mentoring, Gilda's Club New York City, and Worldwide Orphans.
It's not the first time the couple used the roaming paparazzi to promote charities they were concerned about. They did the same thing in September 2012 while being followed in New York City, according to the Daily Mail.
"We just found out that there were paparazzi outside the restaurant we were eating in, so why not take this . . ." Stone wrote on her sign back in 2012. The message continued with Garfield's sign, which added, "opportunity to bring attention to organizations that need and deserve it."
That message had links to Worldwide Orphans Foundation and Gilda's Club, as well.
The Daily Mail reported then that Stone's mother, Krista, is a cancer survivor, being first diagnosed with the disease in 2008. Gilda's Club, named after former "Saturday Night Live" member Gilda Radner
who died of ovarian cancer in 1989, is a support network for those suffering from cancer.
Worldwide Orphans Foundation, which was found in 1997
, addresses the issues of orphan children around the globe, including their physical and mental health, education, and plans for the future, according to its website.
Garfield and Stone won support for their paparazzi efforts on Twitter.
