The recent surge in asthma cases across the U.S. has thus far baffled researchers, who continue to search for causes of the epidemic, but Zombieland star Emma Stone may have inadvertently stumbled upon a scientific breakthrough while shooting a pivotal scene for her new comedy Easy A, in which she plays a suburban teen who’s branded the slut of her school on account of one little lie. Hear about it and more in our exclusive interview with the husky hottie:
While at the junket hotel during the weekend that a few of my colleagues and myself were in LA to attend the Easy A junket, we were having a quick dinner before heading to the screening when a fellow reporter asked the four words that would make any Hollywood paparazzi’s heart leap: “Isn’t that Lindsay Lohan?”
And sure enough, sitting just a few tables behind us, there she was.
Now, luckily, those of us sitting at the table had no interest in gossip, so we all went on with our meals. Still, as film fans, one can’t help but think about the promise that Lohan once showed in biting comedies like Mean Girls.
The next day, after sitting down with Emma Stone — who was professionally on-time and warmly up-beat — to talk about her own new teen comedy Easy A (which can’t help but remind you of Mean Girls, in it’s sharp and quick-witted tone), I couldn’t help but hope that this girl stays on track and continues to fulfill on the promise that Lindsay Lohan once showed years ago.
I don’t want to ever have to say the words “Isn’t that Emma Stone?” while eating dinner, before thinking about the potential that she once showed.
Keep your eyes on Emma Stone – Hollywood’s newest star.
“If you want to bet money on someone’s career,” raved Will Gluck, director of “Easy A,” “I’d bet my house on her.”
“Emma is the best actress you’ve ever seen,” he added. “She can do emotion, sadness, joke and apathy – within one sentence.”
Stone was just 17 when she filmed her big screen debut as Jules in the 2007 comedy hit “Superbad.”
She’s back in high school in Friday’s “Easy A,” loosely inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne’s classic “The Scarlet Letter.” Stone plays Olive, a girl who trashes her reputation online and, embracing the “bad girl” label, gets paid by boys to pretend she carried on with them.
“Olive was so fleshed out on the page my own challenge was trying to do that justice. I don’t know that I did,” said Stone in a one-on-one Boston Herald interview at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles.
The 21-year-old actress thinks the PG-13 rated comedy isn’t just for teens.
“More than anything it’s about reputation. It happens to be set in high school. People of any age know what the digital age is like, the speed with which things travel and whether they’re true or not true.
“You can immediately label someone based on your first impression. What I liked about the themes of the movie is the whole idea of labels and comparisons: You can’t do that because everyone is unique and you don’t know anyone until you know their whole story.”
Stone has landed another plum role as Ole Miss college grad “Skeeter” Phelan in the upcoming film of Kathryn Stockett’s bestseller “The Help.”
“I have a disaster mentality probably,” she joked of her good fortune. “Something horrible must be coming next. I know it will not last forever, so I’m trying to live in the moment.”
After presenting at Sunday’s MTV Video Music Awards, actress Emma Stone went, like, totally wild.
“I went to Mel’s on Sunset and had some grilled cheese. So it was kind of not really your typical crazy after-party,” she says. “But I did do some body shots off of a family of five. Milkshake body shots.”
The 21-year-old star had to make it a light night to prepare for the following evening’s premiere of “Easy A,” Stone’s first starring role and a film that should vault the Arizona native (best known for “Superbad” and “Zombieland”) into a higher level of stardom. The movie’s all over the place, but Stone exudes an endless charm and presence that some actresses 10 years her senior (cough, Katherine Heigl, cough) would kill to have.
In the film, which is a loosely updated version of “The Scarlet Letter,” Stone plays Olive, a witty, pretty high school outsider who embraces the chance to increase her popularity when a false rumor spreads that she lost her virginity. Suddenly the school is buzzing with constant chatter about Olive’s supposed sexual dalliances, which is frustrating to her best friend Rhiannon (Aly Michalka) but doesn’t faze possible love interest Todd (Penn Badgley).
By phone from L.A., Stone, who lives in New York, clearly was having a great day, which got even better when mid-conversation the immensely appealing actress returned to her hotel room to discover an Edible Arrangements basket waiting for her. We shared her excitement and our love of chocolate-coated fruit, and chatted about why people think she’s more risque than she is, the thing about “Easy A” she doesn’t understand and her plans for world domination.
In “Superbad” you also played someone thought to be less straight-laced than she is. Why do you think you’re good for these roles?
Probably because my voice is so low. [Laughs] It gives the impression that all I do is drink whiskey and smoke three packs in a row. But the truth is I drink wine and I only smoke one pack in a row. So that’s much less salacious than you’re thinking.
Man, I could have sworn you sounded exhausted and clearly have been drinking all day.
Isn’t that depressing? That’s just my natural state. [Laughs] I’m drinking a Diet Coke. God, it’s so sad.
How are you feeling with “Easy A” coming out Friday and you being smack in the middle of the poster?
Oh, man. I’m feeling pretty excited. It’s been a crazy week. It’s been a press-filled week, so I’m sick of hearing myself talk. And one of the biggest reasons I’m excited for it to come out now is that I won’t have to hear myself talk for a little while. Also I’m excited about the movie. [Laughs]
