Nowadays, Emma Stone is a red-carpet trendsetter who favors forward-thinking designs by the likes of Elie Saab, Lanvin, and Gucci. But the Amazing Spider-Man star has some hilarious fashion skeletons in her closet, too. In a chat with EW for our new “My Life in Movies” series, in which we talk to actors about the films that inspire them, Stone confesses she was once a dedicated wannabe of a certain ’90s girl group that wasn’t exactly known for having a refined style. “I wanted to dress like the Spice Girls [when I was a kid],” Stone says. “I got platform Skechers. I had bell-bottoms. A lot of peace signs. I cut bangs like Baby Spice because I had blond hair. I wanted to be Baby Spice. I wasn’t Baby because my voice sounded exactly like it does now, and I had that spunky energy going on — I wasn’t [does a baby voice] super demure and sweet. But I really wanted to be.”
Stone also credited Beetlejuice‘s ghoul-loving Lydia (Winona Ryder) as a fashion inspiration and named Diane Keaton’s Annie Hall look as the movie costume she’d most like to wear. “I went as her for Halloween a couple years ago,” Stone says. “I was just like, ‘I want to wear this every day.’”
Check out this interview with Emma Stone done by Cambio during “The Amazing Spider-Man” press junket.
“The biggest criticism that I had to face was someone telling me that my eyebrows were too thick,” Andrew Garfield begins in Moviefone’s fan chat for “The Amazing Spider-Man.”
The web-slinging actor and his real life on-screen lady friend (Emma Stone) take joshing to a whole new level in our Google+ chat, where eight lucky fans were able to pick the stars brain via video conference about their upcoming flick.
Of course, there were a number of serious moments for the actors. After his eyebrow postering, Garfield admitted that his Spidey connection was more than skin deep.
“I struggled with being a skinny kid and i didn’t like it, when I was a kid I was like, ‘Ah, I wish I was [a] bigger guy. And I struggled with that and I was very short, and I wanted to play rugby, and I wanted to do all these sports I wanted to stand up for myself better and not get the crap kicked out of me and that’s one of the things I always identified with Peter Parker about…”
Garfield’s personal experience surely came in handy with the revamped “Spider-Man,” which explores the superhero’s turbulent high school days.
But don’t worry — Garfield and Stone (GarStone? EmDrew?) continued to make each other laugh throughout the video, including riffing on their make-believe most embarrassing on-screen moments: “I crapped myself and then I pissed myself and then all my clothes fell off…”
In this official featurette for “The Amazing Spider-Man” Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone and the crew talk about creating the Spider-Man costume. We get a look at Garfield filming action scenes in the suit and some insight into how difficult it is to make such an awesome superhero outfit.
Emma Stone has joked she was cursed with red hair by producer and director Judd Apatow.
The Amazing Spider-Man star revealed on the Late Night Show she is a natural blonde but dyed her hair red to star in Judd’s movie Superbad, and then couldn’t go back.
Emma said: “Everything I auditioned for after that they were like ‘Let’s keep it red’, ‘How about a different shade of red?’ I was like ‘Maybe we could be blonde?’ and they were like ‘Or red!’.”
The Knocked Up director was in the audience and told Emma: “I’m sorry. I still like it better red.”
The Zombieland star added sarcastically: “Thank you Judd – for everything!”
Emma is delighted to be back to her natural hair colour for the role of Gwen in new superhero movie The Amazing Spider-Man, co-starring her rumoured boyfriend Andrew Garfield.
She said previously: “I went and did hair tests, because I have blonde hair now since Gwen has blonde hair. My natural hair is blonde, so it’s kind of nice. I looked in the mirror and said, ‘Oh my god, it’s me again, it’s been so long!'”
The news of Emma Stone’s casting in “The Amazing Spider-Man” was first met with almost universal approval. She would be the perfect Mary Jane Watson, fans thought. But when her true role as Gwen Stacy became clear, there was almost a bittersweet understanding.
If Gwen is remembered for one thing, it is her death at the hands of the Green Goblin.
When MTV News’ Josh Horowitz spoke with the actress, she told him that the tragic end for the character was what initially drew her into the project. “That was part of the reason why I was kind of drawn to the role, that mark on pop-culture history,” she said. “I read all about Gwen, and I thought that was so amazing.”
Even with Gwen’s death as an iconic moment in comic book history, canon is constantly rewritten for film adaptations. Stone sought answers from the filmmakers as to whether the film version of Gwen would respect the book, and she was pleased with the response.
“I spoke to the people behind the movie, and they said, ‘Yeah, we’re planning on staying true to the comics.’ And I was like, ‘If you’re making a movie like this, that’s something I want to be a part of,’ ” Stone said. “That is so shocking and horrifying and kind of beautiful in some way. The fact that people unsubscribed and burned their copies — I like anything that causes some kind of upheaval.”
Her director Marc Webb couldn’t say whether Stone’s version of Gwen would meet the same fate in an upcoming installment, but he couldn’t deny the allure of working with that moment. “I think that remains to be seen, but let me tell you this: The ultimate tragedy of Gwen Stacy is a really provocative and powerful part of the Spider-Man canon,” he said. “I think it would be really extraordinary to explore that, but I don’t want to take the wind out of the drama.”
