Emma Stone: “I Don’t Believe in Depriving Yourself”

A photo of Emma Stone

Emma Stone, my darling! It’s been far too long since I last sang your praises, but do not worry, my dear, because my love has not faded at all. I still while away the hours admiring your heartbreaking beauty, and my soul still yearns for yours. My love for you shall never disappear, dear Emma, for it is a constant thing that lives in me, and after my last breath, after my body decays and I am no longer part of the physical world, my love for you will be a part of the universe. I will leave my love for you in the stars, in the constellations and galaxies and the vast heavens above you, and it will shine on your pale skin like the moonlight, leaving you warm as the sun.

But hey, before I start sounding too much like Jim Carrey, let me show you this interview she just did, all right?

From Us Weekly:

Like most women, Emma Stone isn’t 100 percent happy with her body.

“I do have that thing of, ‘Oh my God, I’m disgusting! I ate a huge Wagamama lunch, the whole yaki soba, and I feel so fat,’” the 23-year-old tells England’s S Magazine. “But I’m still gonna eat that stuff, and you know what? You can get nice, loose clothes that cover it all up.”

The actress, who’s currently dating her Amazing Spider-Man costar Andrew Garfield, adds: “I’m not gonna go parading around in a bikini. OK, I did that in a photo shoot once, but it’s about what you’re comfortable with at the time you’re comfortable with it. That was a good day, but you won’t hear me saying I have no body issues because I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t.”

While shooting the Oscar-nominated film The Help in 2010, Stone put on a few extra pounds after indulging in Mississippi’s famous comfort foods.

“Suddenly nothing fitted me, but then they have such delicious food in the South and I don’t believe in depriving yourself,” Stone tells S Magazine. “Yes, you should be healthy and take care of yourself, but growing up I’ve seen people who have horrible issues with food.”

Laughs Stone: “I haven’t worked out for a month and I’m proud of it!”

“Running is bad for your knees and I like to do things I actually enjoy, like going for a swim. I had a trainer during Spider-Man and I discovered I have deep-seated rage when I’m holding heavy weights over my head. Whatever dormant anger I have in me, that’s where it comes out. That’s not the kind of working out I want to do,” the actress explains.

“I would much rather sleep at night than want to throw a weight across a room at someone. I’m usually a pretty peaceful person, but for some reason when I get in the gym something bubbles up in me.”

Of course I totally agree with her. Health is definitely important, like she said, but come on, you only get this one life, and if you spend it obsessing over every calorie and never, ever letting yourself have one piece of goddamn cake, then that seems like a waste to me. Eat some cake. Have a cookie. Get yourself a bowl of ice cream. It’s ok. As long as you don’t eat an entire pie by yourself, sobbing and calling yourself a stupid cow, then it’s ok. And even that’s ok sometimes! Just indulge yourself every once in a while, but try and be healthy enough so that you can indulge yourself for a long, long time.

Do we all feel good now? Do we feel a little inspired? All right, then I’m going to go plan out a great Southern meal for Emma and design a really pretty invitation. Maybe then she’ll finally answer my emails.

And Now, the Trailer for ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’

I’ve got to hand it to Andrew Garfield. I wasn’t sure about him at first, you know? Sure, he’s a great actor. But he’s so skinny! So young-looking! He is hardly ideal for action-heroics.

And yet! It turns out he makes a heck of a Peter Parker in this, The Amazing Spider-Man trailer, and my word, he cuts a striking figure in that skin-tight red suit. (What’s that? Baby-faced Andrew Garfield is actually 28 years old, you say? Oh, thank God.)

Embedded above is the movie’s first 3D trailer. Of course it isn’t actually in 3D, not for plebes like us, but Screen Rant promises that the movie, shot in “true 3D,” will deliver.

How darling is Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, you guys? And I hardly recognized Rhys Ifans as Dr. Curt Connors. It stings that the role is no longer filled by Dylan Baker, but Ifans strikes the right chord between “empathetic” and “potentially insidious,” right? Phew.

Are you guys getting excited or what?

The movie hits U.S. theaters July 3.

The Critics’ Choice Awards Were Last Night!

I know, I know, the People’s Choice Awards were just the night before! But settle down, kids, because the Critics’ Choice Awards actually kind of matter, and besides, it’s awards season, so buck up. The Golden Globes are this Sunday, you know. It’s time to get serious.

And you guys, things did get serious last night. Seriously gorgeous. Both my girls, Emma Stone and Evan Rachel Wood, were there, and they both killed it. Take a look above to see Emma looking dazzling, and below to see Evan looking stunning. I actually think I like Evan’s dress a little better. What about you guys?

Did you guys see The Muppets? It’s probably going to be one of my favorite movies ever. Also, I clearly need to see The Artist, huh?

Any additional thoughts?

Highlights from This Weekend’s SNL, Starring Emma Stone

The latest episode of Saturday Night Live was kind of weak, which is too bad, because mothergrabbing Emma Stone was the host. Emma Stone! (She hosted a year ago, too, but still! Emma Stone!)

So none of these clips is laugh-out-loud riotous, but you might hook your thumbs into your pants pockets, nod like a hipster at a Steve Malkmus concert, and just kind of mutter “That’s cool, that’s cool.”

I’m not sure whether “Technology Hump” is safe for work, because it’s pretty unsubtle. It’s probably OK to watch over in the IT department.

Ah! I love it when the Devil (Jason Sudeikis) comes to Weekend Update to talk about current events. The idea of this whole running gag is, not even the Devil can wrap his sweetly devilish little brain around some of the cruelties and evils humanity has devised. In this week’s segment, the Devil is hearing about the Joe Paterno scandal for the very first time.

Who Would You Rather: Emma Stone or Evan Rachel Wood?

Here’s how this started. I saw this picture of Evan Rachel Wood looking all neat and fancy, and I wanted to show you guys. But then I saw a picture of Emma Stone looking like the most adorable girl that’s ever been, and I wanted to show you guys that, too. But since I have a lot to talk about today, I had to choose between my two favorite ladies. And, well, I couldn’t.

Which lady do you prefer?

Just Because: Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, And A Dog

And just so you know, the full title of this post should actually be “Just Because The World Decided to Throw Me A Goddamn Bone and Give Me A Set of Photos Featuring Three of My Very Favorite Things.” Seriously, Ryan Gosling? Emma Stone? DOG?! How else am I supposed to take these pictures? If this isn’t the universe’s way of telling me that I’m on a righteous path, then I honestly don’t know what else it could possibly be.

So here you have it, friends: my cosmic reward, or another excellent reason to see The Gangster Squad. Either one works for me!

Jim Carrey is Officially Creepy AND I LOVE HIM

I say that with lots of love, guys, because Jim Carrey‘s like the brother I never had (OK – the brother I wish I’d had). I really felt for him during his very public breakup with Jenny McCarthy, because I think it hit him hard (and if you don’t, well then. You have some light reading to do, friends), and I think he’s ultra funny and entertaining. Plus, despite the fact that he’s a big, bad movie star with a repertoire a mile long, he does fun stuff in public with his daughter, and that speaks volumes.

However. Cyber-stalking our precious Emma Stone? I know she’s gorgeous and talented and funnyman in her own right, but practically asking for dates via YouTube isn’t exactly … oh, wait. Never mind. I positively frigging loved this.

Good luck, Jim – I hope you get your girl!
