Emma Stone is currently on the cover of Wall Street Journal’s July/August issue! She talks about her upcoming movie Irrational Man, trying to keep her personal life private, and the future of her career. It’s a very interesting read, so check out the article in our press archive. The cover and outtakes from the editorial have been added to the photo gallery.
Tucked into a corner booth at a seafood restaurant off the Pacific Coast Highway, Emma Stone listens attentively as a waiter with a handlebar mustache describes the evening’s specials: bluenose sea bass, whole branzino, grilled market-price lobster, fresh sea urchin, shellfish stew made with mussels and clams gathered from the ocean we can see out the window. Maybe it’s the candles, but Stone’s green eyes look even bigger than usual as she nods enthusiastically, taking it all in. Then the waiter turns to leave, and the 26-year-old actress lets the facade drop. “I was concentrating so hard on making my face look like I was listening that I totally forgot to listen,” she confesses. “I wasn’t listening at all!”
We’ve just met, but this feels like a very Emma Stone moment. The self-effacement, the goofiness, the slapstick laugh. Stone is a famous person who is very good at not seeming famous. It’s the kind of loose-limbed naturalism that has allowed America to fall for her, starting with her breakout role in 2007’s Superbad all the way to her Oscar-nominated turn in Birdman last year.
The photos of Emma Stone for Interview magazine’s May issue have finally been released – she’s looking just as beautiful as ever! The interview, written by Diane Keaton, is a very interesting and entertaining piece as well. As we await the magazine scans, you can check out the pictures in our photo gallery and the article in our press archive.
In the last decade or so, as the big top Hollywood circus has seemingly consolidated itself around the tent poles of the scatological comedy and the superhero melodrama of teen-boy dreams, even the most talented leading ladies have to make do with slight, sexy tomboy parts or girl-next-door roles.
It’s slim pickings—repeatedly demonstrating how down to hang and talk sports or make toilet jokes with the fellas they are, but also, oh wait, she is actually a fiery sex pot if and when we care to take notice. But, at only 26 years of age, Emma Stone has become one of the most singular and dynamic stars in movies by shaking the dust off of these traps and filling them with a magnetism and verve all her own.
Yesterday, The New York Times released a new interview with Emma Stone. The piece was done alongside Oscar-nominated actor Eddie Redmayne during a lunch in the theater district recently. I have added outtakes from the session to our photo archive, as well as the entire interview to our press archive. It’s a very interesting and entertaining read, so you should definitely check it out. Enjoy!
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, 26, 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.
Today I have made a complete revamp of the Press Archive here at Emma Stone Connection, to make it easier for you to find both articles, as well as magazine scans in the Photo Gallery. The idea for the organization came from my friend Frederik of Simply Streep. I will continue to work on the new archive, both article transcripts and new/old scans will be added in the near future. Hope you all like the change, now go check out the Press Archive!
Another magazine cover for Emma! She’s on the front page of the Australian magazine Cleo‘s February issue. In the new interview, she talks about her childhood, starring in The Amazing Spider-Man, and she even shares some thoughts on boyfriend Andrew Garfield! Read the very interesting article in our press archive, and stay tuned for scans from the magazine.
What is it that you especially enjoy about all the success you’ve had in Hollywood?
“I really appreciate that I can stay in villas during shoots and that I can afford to live in New York – despite the horrendous rents. And that I can travel first class. I don’t want to boast about it, but it does make things easier!”
What do you especially like about your boyfriend, Andrew Garfield?
“There’s so much I admire about Andrew, I wouldn’t know where to start – and can’t reveal too much about him. Apart from anything else, he’s the best-prepared actor I’ve ever worked with and he can transform completely into his role. That alone totally fascinates and inspires me. I learn a lot from him!”
In related news, I have added scans from W Magazine to our photo gallery. View the pics here.
It’s official: Emma Stone will make her Broadway debut in the current Roundabout Theatre Company revival of “Cabaret.”
The 25-year-old will replace Oscar nominee Michelle Williams, who made her debut in the role of showgirl Sally Bowles when the revival opened at Studio 54 in April. Stone will take over as Sally beginning Nov. 11 (Williams exits Nov. 9) and will play the role until Feb. 1, 2015.
Alan Cumming — who won a Tony Award for his portrayal of the show’s Emcee in the 1998 Broadway production, which serves as the basis of this revival — will extend his run through March 29, 2015, thus confirming that yet another actress may get to tread the Cabaret boards before the show’s run is through.
Stone was linked to the show in 2013 during Roundabout’s initial announcement, but film scheduling conflicts forced her to back out. Last week, word broke that she had entered negotiations to join the show when Williams vacates the iconic role.
Unrelated but completely related, Stone’s beau Andrew Garfield made his Broadway debut in 2012’s “Death of a Salesman.” Again, unrelated… but completely related.
Venture Capital Post published new article about The Amazing Spider-Man 3 movie. There is information that Emma returns to the production but with new character.
We just reported on “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ and its newly scheduled release date a few hours ago. But in the world of Hollywood, sometimes news has a tendency of breaking in rapid-fire fashion.
That’s what’s happened to Peter Parker. First, as you already know, “The Amazing Spider-Man 3″ was bumped back to a release date in 2018 (the specific date is still unknown). And “The Sinister Six,” the spin-off set to feature six of Spider-Man’s most prominent villains, was bumped up to “The Amazing Spider-Man 3’s” same year of 2016, allowing Sony to continue to build an expanded universe around Spider-Man, and also to keep audiences interested in Spider-Man, by not allowing too many years to pass between any “Spider-Man” film.
s for the actual date held by “The Amazing Spider-Man 3,” Sony has chosen the upcoming “Uncharted” adaptation to fill that slot. “Uncharted” may star Mark Wahlberg, but casting is not 100% right now.
But now, a new update adds an odd wrinkle to the story. As you may know, Gwen Stacy, played by Emma Stone, was a love interest to Peter Parker. And Gwen was killed at the end of “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
Now, a new report claims Andrew Garfield “hopes to still work with Emma Stone,” in the third “Spider-Man” film, despite her character being recently deceased. According to the report, Stone may be back as the character of Mary-Jane Watson, another prominent love interest to the character of Peter Parker.
This would certainly be a bizarre casting choice, as films essentially never cast the same actor in two separate roles (for obvious reasons, as it would greatly confuse the audience). As well, the rumor does not cite any sources or scoops for this information, but we’ll continue waiting to hear if anything develops from this story.
I have bad news for those who are waiting for Untitled Cameron Crowe Project with Emma and Bradley Cooper. It will not be released in December but in May 2015. More info below.
An awards season release later this year is not in the cards for Sony’s romantic comedy .
Columbia Pictures and Regency Enterprises have pushed the release of the untitled Cameron Crowe movie to May 29, 2015. The film had been slated to hit theaters in December.
Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams star alongside Danny McBride, Alec Baldwin, John Krasinski and Bill Murray.
“Once we saw the film, we knew that it would make a perfect summer release. The movie is Cameron at his best,” said Jeff Blake, chairman of worldwide marketing and distribution for Sony Pictures.
Story follows a celebrated military contractor (Cooper) who returns to the site of his greatest career triumphs — the U.S. Space program in Honolulu, Hawaii — where he reconnects with a long-ago love (McAdams) while unexpectedly falling for the hard-charging Air Force watchdog (Stone) assigned to him. In play is a complex satellite system being launched by an enigmatic billionaire with suspicious intentions (Murray).
In addition to writing and directing the film, Crowe produced the picture with Scott Rudin and Cameron Crowe. The movie was executive produced by Ilona Herzberg, Eli Bush and Ben Waisbren.
