Emma graced the cover of Fairlady magazine’s September 2013 issue. While striking a few gorgeous poses for the spread, the “Easy A” hottie dished about her childhood and even reveals why she loves comedies.
Check out a few highlights from Miss Stone’s interview below. For more, be sure to visit Fairlady!
On taking comedic roles:
“I would much rather be seen as funny than sexy. And I love watching comedies. When I was growing up, I fell in love with the old ‘Saturday Night Live’ shows and I was inspired by people like Steve Martin, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, and John Candy. They were real trailblazers for me.”
“My mother started taking me to acting classes because she thought it would help me focus my energies. I was this really anxious kid in grad school. I had my first panic attack when I was eight years old. I don’t know why, but as a kid I worried about things like our house burning down, and I’d wring my hands all the time. So my parents took me to a therapist. While I was figuring things out, something happened where I just thought, okay, all right, I want to act.”
On living the Hollywood lifestyle:
“Sometimes it’s hard to adjust to all the traveling and being away so much. You go into this microcosm of people and you get really close and then you leave and you never really see them again. And then you go somewhere else and do it all over again. It’s like one summer camp after another, without ever going home in between.”
Some newlyweds get big names like Mike Tyson and John Travolta to grace them with their presence on their special day. Others get dream couple Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield. Some people just have all the luck, eh?
This photo was posted to Reddit Monday with the caption “Girlfriend went to her cousins wedding in London, Andrew Garfield was the best man. Oh yeah, his girlfriend came too.”
Since Spider-Man was sporting the same long hair, grown-out scruff combo in London just last week, we’re fairly certain this wedding was a recent event.
Yeah, we think every other wedding pales in comparison, too.
Woody Allen‘s latest movie, currently titled Untitled Woody Allen Project, is filming for the next 10 weeks in Nice, France.

Hi, my name is Anula and I’m the new owner of Dazzling Emma Stone. Claudia needed to step down and was kind enough to let me adopt the site.
I’ve added missing on the set photos from “The Amazing Spider-Man 2″ set from June 12th.
In not-so-related news, Emma dyed her hair back to red and she looks amazing! I think this color suits her and her personality the best. Since DES doesn’t post candids, you need to follow this link if you want to see it.
As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Emma Stone was rumored to be in talks to make her Broadway debut in the upcoming revival of CABARET in the role of Sally Bowles. Now according to the New York Times, Stone has pulled out of the upcoming show. Stone’s publicist told NYT that she “has scheduling conflicts with a feature film that prevent her from joining the musical.”
Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall will co-direct the production, which will open at Studio 54 next spring. A Roundabout spokesperson told NYT: “Roundabout is in the casting phase and exploring if the production can come together with the most ideal cast.”
Earlier this spring, BWW reported that Anne Hathaway was under consideration for the iconic role however her publicist promptly denied the report to the New York Times. However it was confirmed by Cabaret composer John Kander that the Roundabout Theater Company, which revived the musical back in 1998, is planning to bring the show back to Studio 54 in early 2014. Alan Cumming is attached to reprise his role as the Emcee with rehearsals scheduled to get underway in January 2014.
Stone most recently appeared on the big screen in “Gangster Squad” and lent her voice to DreamWorks hit animated film “The Croods.” Next summer she will reprise her role as Gwen Stacy in the second installment of “The Amazing Spider-Man.”
If a certain set of spoiler-heavy set photos didn’t have you worried about Gwen Stacy’s fate in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, then new comments from the film’s leading lady should do the job.
Emma Stone recently spoke with SFX about returning to the role of Gwen for the currently shooting sequel, and she made it clear she wants to stay faithful to the character’s tragic comic book history.
“Essentially the argument is that Spider-Man kills her by accident,” she said, referring to whiplash Gwen suffers when Spidey catches her during a fall from a bridge. “So the person she loves is the person who kills her, which is the most horrifying thing.”
She continued, “Apparently people unsubscribed to the comic book when that happened because they were just so flipped-out over it. But, of course, I want to stay true to that.”
Those comments, combined with the aforementioned set photos and an earlier report that Sony is building to the “Death of Gwen Stacy” story arc, are more than enough reasons for Peter-Gwen shippers to start sweating web fluid.
Directed by Marc Webb, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 also stars Andrew Garfield, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan, Shailene Woodley, Colm Feore, Paul Giamatti and Sally Field. It opens May 2, 2014.
