Emma Stone is quickly becoming the most in-demand actress in Hollywood, and this summer alone stars in three feature films.
Stone’s growing popularity is credited to her hit movie “Easy A” from earlier this year, and to this summer’s “Friends with Benefits,” “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” and “The Help,” in which she plays the lead role.
The 22-year-old remains untainted by her mounting fame, and told New York Metro, “What’s important is the people in your life – your family and friends, love you completely and entirely, that they’re always making fun of you and making you feel like a little bit of an idiot.”
In the upcoming super-hero flick “The Amazing Spider-Man,” Stone plays Gwen Stacy- the love interest of Andrew Garfield’s character, Peter Parker.
She admits having to extensively research her role in “Spider-Man,” telling NZCity News, “I didn’t know much about Spider-Man other than watching the first three movies and every Halloween spending time with the boys who were dressed up as him!”
About her co-star whom she is now reportedly dating, Stone says, “Andrew is one of the most giving actors I’ve ever worked with.” She claims that the 27-year-old actor helped her become a better actress while filming “Spider-Man.”
“If I needed to get to a place of love or sadness in a scene, he’d leave messages on my phone to replay, or slip lines off camera for a different reaction than what was scripted. He gave me so much to react to,” said Stone
In her interview with Teen Vogue the starlet also revealed that her aspirations go beyond acting. “I have dreams of being a producer, being behind a camera, eating seven tacos for every mean, and making movies that affect people the way they affect me,” she said. “I don’t even need to be in them. I really like acting, but I feel like if a day came…”
Stone’s third movie of the summer, “The Help,” hits theaters on August 10th.
