Emma Stone was delighted to grant Eddie Redmayne a retroactive wish on his birthday candle, since he forgot to make one when he blew it out.
“Is that allowed?” the actor asked, 33 to the day, a recent Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee as best actor for his portrayal of the physicist Stephen Hawking in “The Theory of Everything.” He won a Tony Award in 2010 as best featured actor in the Broadway play “Red.”
“Absolutely!” declared Ms. Stone, 27, a film actress best known for her roles in “Easy A” and “The Amazing Spider-Man” franchise. She made her Broadway debut last year in “Cabaret,” in which she continues through Feb. 15, and is also nominated for an Oscar as best supporting actress in “Birdman.”
But she drew the line when Mr. Redmayne floated the idea of a second wish.
“You can’t make them all day,” she said.
Over a late lunch at Angus’ Cafe Bistro — a croque-monsieur for Mr. Redmayne and truffle fries (“without the truffle, please”) for Ms. Stone — the pair discussed their childhood ambitions, propensity to worry and the young actor’s life.
Emma Stone doesn’t know how long her career will last.
The ‘Birdman’ actress – who is currently starring in ‘Cabaret’ on Broadway – feels “very lucky” for the “incredible” opportunities she has been given but sometimes feels “overwhelmed” because she is trying to challenge herself as much as possible.
She said: “It’s been wonderful but it’s also challenging and I’m going into places that I’ve never really allowed myself to go before with ‘Birdman’ and ‘Cabaret’.
“I feel very lucky that I’m getting the opportunity to do it and I don’t know how long that opportunity will last – I’m trying to learn as much as I possibly can in this time.
“It’s been incredible but also slightly overwhelming at times just because it’s so different to anything I’ve done before.”
The ‘Easy A’ star also feels “very lucky” because she knew she wanted to be an actress when she was just 11 years old.
She told Psychologies magazine: “I’m from Phoenix, Arizona and it was a nice place to grow up. There was a great youth theatre where I got to do improvisation at a very young age. I was 11 when I started doing improv – and learning where your passion lies at just that age, well, I was just very lucky.
“I think I knew I wanted to act when I was seven and in my first school play.”
Emma will be presenting at the upcoming Screen Actors Guild Awards! The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be simulcast live on TNT and TBS on Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015 at 8 p.m. (ET) / 5 p.m. (PT).

To promote Magic in the Moonlight, Emma Stone visited last night The Late Show With David Letterman. You will find in our gallery some pictures of her arrival/departing, and below some excerpts of the interview. Come back later for the full interview/screencaptures.
Emma joined her Magic in the Moonlight co-star Colin Firth today morning in New York for an interview on Good Morning America. She was beautiful wearing a Dior dress, and her interview was funny – as usual. During the interview, Emma revealed that she named her first dog after her director Woody Allen‘s famous Annie Hall character, Alvy Singer.
“He doesn’t know that. Oh God. He knows now,” she said. Watch it:
Why do we love them? Try this: they spotted a group of photographers while eating at a restaurant in New York City and decided to use the opportunity to promote some charities and organizations by using handwritten notes.
Both Garfield and Stone have used the tactic once before when spotted by the paparazzi, and this time decided to add some more charities to their list.
Good morning! We were eating and saw a group of guys with cameras outside. And so we thought, let’s try this again. We don’t need the attention, but these wonderful organizations do:
www.youthmentoring.org, www.autismspeaks.org, (and don’t forget) www.wwo.org, www.gildasclubnyc.org.
Here’s to the stuff that matters. Have a great day!
