Who is Dave McCary? Five things about Emma Stone’s husband


Emma Stone and Dave McCary were supposed to tie the knot in March, but they decided to postpone the wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, an insider just confirmed that the couple is already married.

Emma Stone sparked marriage rumors when she was spotted with a gold band when she joined Reese Witherspoon for a virtual conversation about mental health. In another sighting, Stone and Dave McCary wore their matching gold bands, which turned out to be their wedding rings.

A source confirmed to Page Six that Stone and McCary are already married. Here are five facts about Emma Stone’s husband.

Dave McCary is an SNL segment director

Emma Stone’s husband is a segment director on Saturday Night Live. The two met on the set in December 2016. McCary was the one who directed Stone’s hilarious skit, Wells, for Boys.

He already directed a film

Aside from being a segment director at SNL, Dave McCary has already directed a film. He helmed the comedy-drama Brigsby Bear in 2017. The movie premiered at Sundance and was released by Sony Pictures Classics.

The film stars Kyle Mooney, Mark Hamill, Claire Danes, Alexa Demie, Gregg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, Andy Samberg, and Ryan Simpkins, to name a few.

In 2017, Emma Stone and McCary were seen leaving together at the Brigsby Bear premiere. However, at the time, they haven’t announced their dating status.

He is a comedian

Emma Stone’s husband started his career in a sketch comedy group. He grew with comedian Kyle Mooney, and both attended the University of Southern California together.

The pair met Nick Rutherford and Beck Bennett there, and the four later became the founding members of the comedy troupe, Good Neighbor. They started Good Neighbor in 2007, and it quickly amassed millions of views on YouTube.

Prior to landing SNL, they finished filming a The Good Neighbor Show for Comedy Central. But SNL wanted them really bad and worked with the cable network to get them out of their deal to be part of the long-running sketch show.

McCary serves as the group’s director and editor.

He proposed to Emma Stone last year

Emma Stone and Dave McCary are notoriously private about their romance. Thus, there were very little details about them.

For many, their relationship was only confirmed when Stone shared a photo of them with her rocking an engagement ring in December 2019. Many were brokenhearted because, at the time, they thought there were still chances for Stone and Andrew Garfield to reconcile.

He is present on Instagram

Dave McCary is present on Instagram but rarely shares photos of him with Emma Stone. When he shared the photo of him with the La La Land star showing off her engagement ring, many were surprised.
