Emma Stone is one of those love or hate celebrities – though I haven’t met too many people who dislike her. Still, apparently those people exist, as she’s found a number of detractors online who’ve described her as a “bland, basic bitch”. Fair descriptor? Eh, I dunno.
Here are a few choice quotes…
On the public’s perception of her:
She is the rare person in public life who will straight up tell you that yes, she has Googled herself. “I don’t usually like what I find,” she says. “But some of it is really funny.” Stone mentions Internet comments that referred to her as a “Bland Basic Bitch,” which was probably meant as a dig, but she found it hilarious, to the point that at dinner she now begins to refer to herself as “That Bland Basic Bitch.”
On her love life with Garfield:
“I think I’ve learned a lot by being around him,” Stone says of Garfield. “And, you know, he is an incredibly important person to me.”
The feeling is clearly mutual. Garfield sounds grateful that Stone has been at his side during the far-flung Spider-Man journey. “I thank my lucky stars that we’ve been able to be on this ride together,” he says in an e-mail. “We all need companions in the mystery to get you out of your head and into your heart, to moan to and to take the piss out of it all with.”
I ask Stone about filming scenes with Garfield. Is that stuff easy? Harder?
“It’s not harder,” she says. “It’s fun. It’s been fun working with him just because of who he is as an actor and person. I think it would be fun no matter what.”
On her career ambitions:
Stone was ready to make her Broadway debut as Sally in Cabaret—she got the part after auditioning for Sam Mendes in London—but ran into scheduling difficulties with her Spider-Man obligations. She believes she’ll eventually get a chance to play Sally. “Someday,” she pledges. She talks about other theatrical parts, about taking more chances in film. “The thing I gravitate toward naturally is comedy,” Stone says. “But I want to do different things.” Like what? Maybe some “truly bizarre characters,” she says. Maybe she’ll produce. “I would like to see what I can do.”
I dunno, I kinda like her – or at the very least find her pretty innocuous. Plus, she looks FLAWLESS more often than not, so that’s a thumbs up.
What do you think? Love her? Hate her? Meh on her?

Emma Stone turned up in Berlin on Friday for a photocall to promote her new animated film The Croods, which looks like some weird Flintstones rip-off. I’m not too far off, apparently, as the IMDB synopsis reads: “The world’s very first prehistoric family goes on a road trip to an uncharted and fantastical world.” In any case, Emma and some of her voice co-stars (the cast includes Nicolas Cage, Cloris Leachman and Ryan Reynolds, but only Nic was there from that list) hit the blue backscreen (I don’t see a red carpet) to meet the press leading up to the film’s release.
We like Emma because she seems like a cool, down-to-earth girl (woman) who keeps her personal life – and in paticular, her romance with Spider-Man co-star Andrew Garfield – under wraps. More actresses could take a few notes from her.
Pics from the photocall below!

We love Emma Stone, right? Totally love her? Which is why it’s perfectly acceptable to say that I’m just not feeling her photos from this recent W photo shoot. The interview’s great, natch, but the spread? Ugh. Not very flattering.
Here’s Emma Stone on her role in ‘Gangster Squad’:
[I play] Grace Faraday, who moved to Hollywood in the ’40s to become a star and ended up falling in with Mickey Cohen, a very well-known gangster, and his brood. Grace is also having an affair with Jerry Wooters, portrayed by Ryan Gosling. He’s one of the cops investigating Mickey Cohen. Grace is playing with fire—she’s constantly torn, caught in that classic conundrum between good and evil.
On joking in her professional life and in her personal life:
In real life, sometimes it’s uncomfortable for me not to go for the joke. I’ve been looking at that in myself lately. Often, joking for me is a way of diffusing the awkwardness of a situation, so it’s kind of exhilarating to be a part of projects where there’s nothing funny or lighthearted.
On appearing “drunk” at an awards show last year:
It was for best visual effects, so Ben and I had all these funny ideas. Planet of the Apes was nominated, so we thought we would bring a chimp onstage and I’d say, “Oh—it looks so real.” And Ben would be like, “It’s a real chimp.” And I’d be insisting, “Oh, my God—the work they do now is so staggering.” And he’d repeat, “It’s a real chimp.” But apparently, you can’t make the Oscar presentation about a particular movie or else the audience thinks you’re swaying the vote toward that movie. So instead, we pretended that Ben had been to the Oscars many times and I was this really overly enthusiastic Oscar presenter. I was very excited, and he was not.
And last, on movies that make her cry:
The end of City Lights makes me cry every time I see it—when Charlie Chaplin walks by the shop window and the once blind girl brings him a flower and pins it to his lapel. She’s always thought that he was a millionaire, but he was really a tramp. She feels his hand and says, “You?” And he nods. He says, “You can see now?” And she says, “Yes, I can see now.” They cut back to his face, and he lights up like you’ve never seen. That last line—“Yes, I can see now”—has so many meanings. It’s echoed in every great romantic movie since then and in every great moment of life.
Gotta love her, guys. Just not the photos. Right?

Even though I don’t think I’ve ever really talked about them before, Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are one of my favorite couples right now. They’re both just so cute on their own, and they’re super cute together. Oh, and one time they did this thing where they were eating at some diner and they saw some photographers waiting to get some pictures, so they made these little signs on napkins with information about a couple of charities and their websites. Isn’t that precious? That kind of stuff is why I love them.
But guys, they’ve adopted a dog together. Isn’t that precious? They were looking for a dog, and they saw a cute golden retriever mix (People says she’s a purebred, but I’m not too sure). They liked her, but they weren’t for sure about her, but eventually they decided to be foster parents to her. And then a couple of days ago, right on Christmas Eve, they formally adopted her. They named her Ren, and they have since taken her for a walk:
It’s ok, you can swoon. I swooned.

Emma Stone has a sex tape, and it’s not with her Amazing Spider-Man co-star and boyfriend Andrew Garfield, a source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.
While the Easy A actress is known more as a comedic sweetheart than a sultry sexpot, a close insider says Emma, 24, has a wild streak that has culminated itself in the form of a homemade sex romp on video.
“Emma Stone has a sex tape and that’s a fact,” the source told RadarOnline.com.
“She made it long before she started dating Andrew Garfield, and before she really became a household name. She was just young and probably thought nothing would ever come of it.”
According to the insider, the tape has not been shopped around…yet.
“The tape remains in the hands of the person she made it with,” the source said.
“But that doesn’t mean there’s any guarantee that it won’t eventually hit the market. The higher Emma’s star rises, the more valuable that tape becomes.”
The source — a close pal of the actress — tells RadarOnline.com that Emma certainly isn’t the type who would relish in releasing a sex tape and sees no benefit of making a name for herself by using it.
“Emma’s really happy with her career and proud of where she is,” the source said.
“There’s no way she would organize the release of the tape; in fact, she would fight to stop it. She has no respect for women like Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton who became famous because they released a sex tape.”
I think I can actually believe this story. It’s not like sex tapes are just for whorey slut trollops, you know? Anybody can record themselves having sex, and that’s fine, it’s just when you release it to the world and use it to achieve fame while consistently denying that you had anything to do with the release that makes it a little shady. And of course Emma wouldn’t want it released, so that makes sense. I don’t know, I just don’t think this is as scandalous as it’s supposed to be. The real scandal would be if the tape ever gets released. Would it make me a bad imaginary girlfriend if I watched it?

“I was crawling on the floor. I remember throwing up, like, within the hour. I remember being on the floor…I have never felt anything quite like that. It was so visceral. It’s like someone has killed you and you have to live through it and watch it happen…It was awful.”
—Emma Stone, interviewing with Cameron Crowe for Interview magazine, where she talked about her first heartbreak—at the tender age of fourteen. Ahem. I said fourteen.
See, I had this kind of breakup once. But it wasn’t at fourteen—I was twenty, going on twenty-one, and I had dated the guy for almost three years. When I was fourteen, I was too busy building forts in the woods and riding my bike all over the city to care all that deeply about someone that I’d actually be vomiting from upset when things ended, as they inevitably do at the age of fourteen.
Maybe this is why youth are in the state they’re in these days. You know, the abundance of teenage suicides and bullying and Teen Mom-like antics, because kids are just trying to grow up way faster than they have in the past. Although Emma and I are only six years apart, it seems like we had very, very different experiences at fourteen years old.
I mean, honestly. Whatever happened to all-night Nintendo marathons at fourteen?
