Hello! First, I just wanted to quickly introduce myself. I’m Jessica and I’ll be helping Jennifer [owner] out around here to make sure you get the latest info on Emma as it’s happening!
Here is the interview Emma did with Teenhollywood.com while filming Easy A!
You can find the rest of the interview [With Penn Badgley and Amanda Bynes] HERE!
You know those classes everybody wants to take because it’s a snap to get an “A”? Well, movie-making isn’t quite as easy for the young, hot cast of next year’s high school comedy Easy A. TeenHollywood was in Ojai, California a few days ago on set at a real high school where 20-somethings Emma Stone (Superbad, The Rocker), Penn Badgley (“Gossip Girl”) and Amanda Bynes (Hairspray) were going back to high school playing students at a pep rally and working hard, over and over again to get their fun scenes just right.
The film is loosely based on the Hawthorne classic “The Scarlet Letter” but before you run the other way picturing pilgrim types, the only real similarity is the timeless truth that rumors can make or break a person’s reputation. ‘Nuff said. We are honoring the film studio’s wishes that we hold back on all the very, very cool stuff we saw until closer to the film’s release date next year. But, we’ll say that it was very funny and showed that these actors have some talents we’ve not yet seen them explore!
We got to grab some chairs behind the director’s monitors, watch the action both live and on the screen and, in between set-ups, grab some time with Amanda, Penn and Emma! We got some info not related to the film that we can share right now. Check it out!
TeenHollywood: Emma, what was your high school experience like?
Emma: I was only in high school for a couple of months. I went to an all girls Catholic high school and then I decided to leave and move to LA to do this [acting] which I can’t believe here I am now. That was 5 1/2 years ago.
TeenHollywood: So can you relate to teen girls with the pressures they’re faced with whether you’re in high school or not?
Stone: Absolutely. I think that’s what I like about [my character] so much. She rises above it and realizes this is just temporary and this is high school and everyone will forget this and everyone will move on. What can she do but have as much fun to get through it as she can? It kinda bites her in the a**, but it’s also really funny.
TeenHollywood: Your part is pretty central to this film. This movie is on your shoulders basically. Is this the first time?
Emma: Yeah. It’s been wild. It’s been crazy. It feel different than I thought it might. I never thought in a million years that that would ever be the case. It’s wild. This is my third movie in a row so I’ve been working for eight months. It’s kinda natural. It’s just like ‘oh another set’ and you’re working and you kinda forget that you’re here all day every day. I don’t really think about it like that. I just think about getting my job done. We’ll see how it turns out.
We’re going to say that Emma is doing an amazing job in a scene that will showcase talents we’ve not seen her display as yet. We think it will all “turn out” fine! Check back in a few months for more details on Easy A!
