If reality TV has taught us anything, it’s the assumption that when women get together the claws come out. But it was far from the case for the female leads of the best-selling book-turned-movie The Help, which has been getting rave reviews since hitting theaters on Aug. 10.
“I don’t see women as catty and competitive all the time,” Emma Stone tells iVillage. In fact, the 22-year-old actress (who plays a progressive young writer in the movie set in the South of the 1960s) says there was nothing but love between the females on set.
And costar Viola Davis, 45, couldn’t agree more. “It’s so fabulous in this movie, none of that (cattiness) happened,” says the actress. “You have people from such different backgrounds and races and age groups, and none of that happened.”
“Women work a whole lot better as teammates than enemies,” Stone adds “We really do.”
Watch our exclusive video interview to find out why Stone was “shocked” to learn about the violence of the Civil Rights movement while prepping for the role and how she’s often mistaken for being older than she really is.

With her best-seller adaptation “The Help” hitting the box office this week, actress Emma Stone is attached to star in “Little White Corvette,” a comedy directed by Michael Diliberti, according to TheWrap’s sister website ItsontheGrid.com.
Reps for Stone denied the attachment, although one individual close to her conceded that the actress has read — and likes — the script.
“Corvette” is an independent film about a nerdy guy and his wild older sister who team up to sell $1 million of cocaine that they find in the trunk of their deceased father’s sports car.
Diliberti wrote Columbia’s “30 Minutes or Less,” which stars Jesse Eisenberg, Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari.
The movie is being produced by Scott Aversano and Michael De Luca.
Stone is a compelling young star who’d be a great get for the comedy. In addition to “The Help,” she’s starred in this year’s “Crazy, Stupid, Love” and “Friends With Benefits.”
And she stars as Gwen Stacy in Sony’s 2012 “The Amazing Spider-Man” and as Jean in Warner Bros.’ 2013 film “The Gangster Squad.”
The Help debuted Wednesday and led the box office with a solid $5.5 million. Disney and DreamWorks’ $25 million drama, based on Kathryn Stockett’s bestselling novel and starring Viola Davis, Emma Stone, Octavia Spencer, and Bryce Dallas Howard, was released on Wednesday to help build buzz heading into the weekend. That strategy should work out well, as The Help has received a rare “A+” grade from CinemaScore audiences, indicating that the PG-13 movie should benefit from excellent word of mouth.
On average, only two movies per year garner an “A+” rating from CinemaScore, a market-research firm that surveys moviegoers on a picture’s opening day. Since 2004, just 15 films have scored an “A+” grade. They are, in chronological order: The Passion of the Christ, Ray, The Incredibles, The Polar Express, Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Cinderella Man, Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Akeelah and the Bee, Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married?, Up, The Blind Side, Tangled, Soul Surfer, and now The Help.
CinemaScore ratings, however, sometimes have to be taken with a grain of salt. After all, the moviegoers who rush out to see a new film on its opening day are likely predisposed to enjoy that particular film. It’s probably safe to assume that many of the CinemaScore graders for The Help were already big fans of the novel, and it’ll be interesting to see whether their enthusiasm spreads to those unfamiliar with the book.
Regardless, The Help has started its theatrical journey strongly and has the potential to become a real late-summer hit. Check back later today for EW’s weekend box-office predictions.
