“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?
These photos were posted on a couple of other sites today, many of them blazing, “Extreme Weight Loss!” and “Scary-Skinny!” but guys, I’m not so sure I agree. Yeah, Emma’s lost a few pounds for whatever reason (A role? It’s summer and it’s been hot and who wants to eat? She just felt like it?), but I hardly think it’s anything to squawk about.
What do you guys think—is Emma treading into too-skinny territory, or is it all just … well, whatever?
I have no idea how I haven’t noticed this, but when did Emma Stone go back to being blonde? She first went blonde (or I guess reverted back to blonde, as blonde is her natural hair color) at the end of 2010 for the Spider-Man movie, but she dyed it red again around this time last year. She stayed a redhead for The Help and all of the promotions for that movie, she was a redhead at the Oscars, and she was a redhead at the Met Gala in May, though I can see now that it was definitely a lighter shade of red. But, as you can see, she’s a full-out blonde again. Commence the weeping!
And it’s not even just that she’s not a gorgeous ginger anymore, it’s that the blonde doesn’t seem to do a lot for her. Check out this picture:
I mean, it’s definitely the makeup too, but come on now. Even Emma Stone’s skin color knows that she needs to go back to red.
To offset the disappointment that Emma’s current hair color is sure to bring you, I present to you a picture of my kitten posing quite introspectively behind my tiny heart-shaped fountain:
There, now don’t you feel better?
