Quotables: Emma Stone Wants a Piece of Jim Carrey, Too

“I was so flattered I can’t even tell you. Honest! I was really flattered, I really was! … Right before the video came out, we were at the MTV Movie Awards. Jason Sudeikis hosted,” she recalls. “There was like five of us, and we just went on this tangent of talking nice behind Jim Carrey’s back. Jason was talking about how great [Carrey] was when he went on Saturday Night Live and how he was just like a comedic genius. Everyone was kind of weighing in, like ‘He’s the best. He’s amazing.’ And so when [the video] happened, we all kind of talked to each other like, ‘Weird, that was the guy we were lauding for, like, 30 minutes.’ Have you ever done that? Just all sat around a table saying nice things about one person? It was the greatest thing. You walk away, and you were just like, That felt so good, to talk about how wonderful someone is.”

Now I don’t know why Emma’s taken an entire year to really address Jim’s video, but hey. I guess it’s better late than never, right? Also, I watched ‘Mr. Popper’s Penguins’ the other night. And no, before you ask, I don’t really know why, either. It just happened. Just like how I’d kind of like to see these two happen. Yeah, he’s old enough to be her dad, but that’s not stopping people like Mary-Kate Olsen and Olivier Sarkozy, now, is it?

Emma Stone: Still The Greatest

The release of the new Spider-Man movie is just around the corner, so I guess Emma Stone is doing a lot of interviews to promote it. It’s a wonderful, magical time when Emma has something big to promote, because otherwise she tends to keep things a little too low-key for me to be able to really obsess over her the way I want to. That’s what this is, by the way. So just gear up for that.

Her newest interview is just as darling as the last, so let’s go ahead and get into it, shall we?

Being adorable: She lets out a gigantic, honking cough. “I feel like I need to eat a little something because I have postnasal drip,” she says, clearing her throat. “Not to brag,” she adds in a goofy-smarmy voice.

On her boyfriend, Andrew Garfield: “Not too shabby, eh?”

On being private: “I’d tell you everything if that thing wasn’t here,” she says apologetically, gesturing at the tape ­recorder. “It’s just not necessarily stuff I want the whole world to read and have an opportunity to comment on. I’m sorry, I hate to be that actress who says”—girlish voice—“?‘I don’t talk about my personal life,’eeesh. I was such a fan as a kid, and there were so many people I wanted to know about. I understand it; I just can’t bring myself to do it. I freak out having a Facebook.”

On paparazzi: One morning, an editor at Us Weekly saw her and Garfield at brunch at this very restaurant and alerted photographers, who swarmed the place and followed them to their apartment, where the paparazzi set up camp and refused to budge for over a month. “One guy told me, ‘This is my job. I’m going to be here every day now,’?” Stone says. “I cried in front of this guy. When you hear this at eight o’clock in the morning, you’re like, Oh my God, my life as I know it is gone.

On foot haters: She doesn’t seem to have a lot of haters, not even on the Internet, unless you count the poster on Wikifeet, “the collaborative celebrity foot-fetish website,” who finds her toes a little bony. “Is this grounds for retirement?” she deadpans. “Be really, really, brutally honest.”

Her worst quality: “I ­project things onto situations that aren’t necessarily happening,” she says when I ask what her worst quality is. “Oh, yeah,” she says. I must look surprised: I was expecting a joke about a vestigial tail or something. “I’m really going to go there. This is like a historical ‘I have dealt with it in therapy’ type of thing. I’ll think that someone is saying something or thinking something, and I’ll react emotionally as if that were the truth. Sometimes I think someone is whispering to someone else about me, and I get sad, and then I’m reacting like I’m sad for hours when it really isn’t happening.” She pauses. “For the rest of the night, I’m going to think about how I told you that.”

On looks: “The pretty thing … It was never a value to me growing up,” she says. “I always thought I was like the goofy, wonky one.”

Would a lengthy heartfelt fan letter be creepy, or would it be worth a shot?

Emma Stone Covers Vogue

As if she wasn’t lucky enough to star in a movie where she gets to HAVE SEX with Ryan Gosling, she’s completely and utterly gorgeous and charming, too. Some girls have all the luck. And yeah, even though this post is about Emma Stone, I’m going to go right ahead and talk about Eva Mendes for a second, because girlfriend there is a stark comparison to Emma Stone. Eva Mendes might get to have sex with Ryan Gosling, but she will never, never, never (did I say “never”? Because I definitely mean never) have that particular charming x-factor that Emma Stone practically oozes. And that, my friends, is why I’m not completely jealous of Eva Mendes for boning Ryan Gosling and trying to get knocked up in time for a shotgun wedding. No, because there’s so many better ladies that Ryan could be porking, and if it weren’t for that Andrew Garfield dude—another person whose appeal is questionable to me—it could happen. It could happen. And I would love it, truth be told.

Here’s a few mini-excerpts from Vogue‘s spread and commentary:

Emma on what she does for a living:
“I’m not saving lives. But I get to tell stories, and that’s a pretty important task.”

On being comical growing up:
“Comedy was my sport. It taught me how to roll with the punches.”

How she feels about fashion:
“It makes them feel like it’s an extension of themselves.”

“Amazing Spider-Man” Producer Matt Tolmach on Emma:
“She’s stunning, so she’s disarming.”

“Amazing Spider-Man” co-star/boyfriend Andrew Garfield on Emma:
“Working with Emma was like diving into a thrilling, twisting river and never holding on to the sides.”

“Amazing Spider-Man” Director Marc Webb on Emma:
“A lot of young actresses are either very serious or doe-eyed. Emma sidesteps that.”

Gosh. Isn’t she just the most?
