Biography

Emma Stone never took herself too seriously, which might explain her unusual choices in roles: a sullen bass player, a nerdy sorority girl, a zombie killer. But it was exactly those bold choices that gave Stone an edge over so many Hollywood ingénues who were typecast as the pretty, non-threatening love interest. Stone first gained attention as Jonah Hill's teen crush in the comedy "Superbad" (2007), which also starred resident geek-next-door Michael Cera. The part showcased the actress' improv skills, honed over many years of performing on stage. After playing second fiddle to more seasoned actresses like Anna Faris in "The House Bunny" and Jennifer Garner in "Ghosts of Girlfriends Past" (2009), Stone scored the lead role in the comedy "Easy A" (2010), as a high school student who develops a "whorish" reputation after pretending to have slept around. Comedy was clearly Stone's forte, but her impressive turn as a fearless writer in the film version of the best-selling novel "The Help" (2011) gained her much critical acclaim, and a place as one of her generation's most versatile actresses.

Bonus Trivia

.

"I had massive anxiety as a child. I was in therapy. From 8 to 10, I was borderline agoraphobic. I could not leave my mom's side. I don't really have panic attacks anymore, but I had really bad anxiety. There was a lot of fear, but it was also very exciting." – Stone quoted in Glamour magazine, May 2011

"She can be completely goofy and gawky and geeky, and she can be drop-dead gorgeous." – Allison Janney, Stone's co-star in "The Help," quoted in People, Aug. 2011
