Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone gave the paparazzi a picture worth a thousand words when they held signs up in front of their faces that asked the photographers to give their attention to various charities rather than the celebrity couple.

"Spider-Man" sweethearts Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone pulled a superhero stunt of their own this week when they went out to eat in New York City.

The couple knew the paparazzi were waiting to take photos of them on their outing, so they held homemade signs in front of their faces that redirected their viewers' attention toward helping charities, according to Mashable.

"Good morning! We were eating and saw a group of guys with cameras outside. And so we thought, let's try this again. We don't need the attention, but these wonderful organizations do: -->" Stone's sign read, directing readers to Garfield's message.

Garfield's sign was filled with the websites of various charities, including Autism Speaks and World Wide Orphans.

Garfield concluded his missive by writing, "Here's to the stuff that matters. Have a good day!" according to the L.A. Times.

This is the second time Garfield and Stone have used their passion for charity work to redirect the paparazzi's attention, according to the Huffington Post.

In September 2012, the two pled with the paparazzi to give their attention to Gilda's Club, an organization dedicated to those living with cancer, and World Wide Orphans, an organization that provides health care and education to orphaned children.

Stone is an ambassador for Gilda's Club, while Garfield is an ambassador for World Wide Orphans.
