Everyone’s favorite starlet, Emma Stone, graces the cover of W magazine’s Movie Issue. Dubbed "Hollywood’s Reigning Golden Girl," the raspy-voiced redhead talks Oscars and movie roles.
In the interview, Stone referenced last year’s Academy Awards when she presented (a first for her!) with Ben Stiller. She gave a hilarious performance as the newbie who gets a bit too excited and apparently some took that to mean she was tipsy. "A lot of people thought it was something else: When I came offstage, they were saying, ‘You were so drunk!’," quotes E! Online from W magazine. "And I wasn’t. Not until after."
The 24-year-old beauty also talked about her latest movie "Gangster Squad," the 1940s film that reunited her with fan favorite Ryan Gosling. "It’s time-consuming to put on a bustier and a little corset every day," she said of her role as moll Grace Faraday, per E!. "But you’re immediately more poised than you would be in modern-day clothes. And it makes it easy to get into character."
Stone also opened up to W’s editor-at-large Lynn Hirschberg about doing drama versus comedy. "In real life, sometimes it’s uncomfortable for me not to go for the joke," quotes the New York Daily News from the interview. "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."
That might explain Stone’s next project, a fresh new angle for her genre-wise. The object of Spiderman’s affection is turning to horror, reports Indie Wire, as she’s cast to play in Guillermo Del Toro’s next film "Crimson Peak," a gothic ghost tale set at the turn of the century. The movie is said to start filming in a year.
Is it 2014 yet?
