Image of the email in iOS GMail

If I tap and hold on the "I" green box, I will copy the "I" and the email address and some other info that looks like this:

internationalplaza@apple.com
to me, internationalplaza

but I really just want the email address. The use case is kind of complicated - sometimes people email me and I need to forward them another email from my phone, so I just want to copy their email address so I can paste it into the other forwarded email.

So how can I just copy out the email address or perhaps suppress this display style? I just want "internationalplaza@apple.com" in my copy buffer.
