Emma Stone covers W Magazine (and we wish she looked cuter!)

Why does Emma Stone always look like a hot mess on magazine covers? Okay, maybe it’s not EVERY time, but honestly, it’s enough times to make me remember she usually looks like a hot mess. On her Interview Magazine cover earlier this year, she was almost unrecognizable. She covered Vogue Magazine, and looked so bizarre, she almost looked like a robot. In fact, the last decent cover I’ve seen of Emma Stone was back in August 2011, when she landed the cover of Vanity Fair. She looked absolutely adorable. So what’s with all these weird photo shoots she’s been doing lately? Why is she afraid to look cute (like she is!)? Who’s to blame??

She looks like a big ol’ hot mess in these new pictures for the February issue of W Magazine. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On her role in ‘Gangster Squad’: “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 starring in dramas lately, rather than comedies: “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.”

Presenting last year’s Oscars with Ben Stiller: “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…. Though a lot of people thought it was something else: When I came offstage, they were saying, “You were so drunk!” And I wasn’t. Not until after…”

On her first Oscars: “At first, when you go to premieres and award shows, you’re thinking, How the hell am I here? All these people I’ve never met are here, and it’s so cool! And then, as time goes on, it’s a little bit like, Ah…it’s more like work. There are only a couple of events where I’ve truly felt, That was an awesome night—and the Oscars was one of them.”

What movie makes 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.”

I won’t hold this photo shoot against her. I love her still…. :)

Who’s going to see ‘Gangster Squad’? I’m totally going to see it (Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling in the SAME MOVIE!?) but I wish it was getting better reviews. It’s currently getting a 34% on Rotten Tomatoes, and I usually agree with them. 34% means the movie is probably going to really suck – but will that stop me? Probably not. Have any of you seen it yet? I’d love to hear your opinion!

SEBASTIAN PROFESSIONAL STYLIST MARA ROSZAK COIFS EMMA STONE FOR THE GANGSTER SQUAD PREMIERE IN LOS ANGELES

On Monday, January 7th at the Gangster Squad premiere held at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles, Emma Stone looked feminine chic in a sweetheart-shaped red Lanvin dress complemented by a clean, shoulder-length cut and blunt fringe, crafted by celebrity stylist Mara Roszak.

To achieve Emma’s modern hair look, follow Mara’s tips:

  • Wash the hair with Sebastian Professional Trilliance Shampoo and Conditioner and apply Clairol Professional Volume Mousse to the lengths of towel-dried hair.

  • Let the Velcro rollers sit for a few minutes and pull them out. Gently brush the hair, making sure to maintain the bend at the ends.

Emma Stone and Halle Berry do a Cancer PSA for Revlon

The women of Revlon have never been quiet about their support of cancer-fighting causes, and now, they’re coming together for the beauty brand’s first-ever public service announcement campaign, created with the Entertainment Industry Foundation.

Halle Berry
and Emma Stone star in the stark clip, which focuses on the message that “Your Lips Can Save Lives” when you talk about cancer and encourage loved ones to schedule regular medical check-ups to ensure early detection.

“We sort of did a play on how we can use our lips, while wearing lipstick, to laugh, to flirt and to spread the word about cancer, and encourage other women to do the same,” Berry says in a release.

“We can talk to the women that we love about getting screened today,” Stone adds.

Since 1990, Revlon has raised more than $75 million for cancer-fighting causes through fundraising efforts that include its annual EIF Revlon Run/Walk for Women. In addition to the PSA, out this week, the brand is also running a print campaign, which features Stone and her mother, a breast cancer survivor.

Emma Stone opens up in the new Interview Magazine: “My first heartbreak was like being killed”

Emma Stone graces the big September issue of Interview Magazine, and inside, the actress is almost unrecognizable!

For the article, Emma was interviewed by director Cameron Crowe. The actress opened up about love and heartbreak, and compares being dumped to being killed. Hmmm:

“What was your first heartbreak like?” Crowe asks.

“I was crawling on the floor. I remember throwing up,” Stone, 23, replies.

“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,” she says.

Although painful, Crowe and Stone discuss channeling their distress into their work.

“Creatively, do you think it’s true or false that many of the artists who we know and love are often governed by a single event that happens in their life, and that event then becomes this vivid, iconic thing they return to over and over in their work?” Crowe asks.

“One-hundred percent true. That’s not actually my moment or my theme – my moment is not one that I would probably talk about,” says Stone. “But there is a moment that keeps coming back over and over throughout my life. It’s the thing that I return to when I’m making a decision out of fear. Anything that I’m doing out of fear is defined by that moment.”

In the magazine, Emma wears some high-fashion ensembles including BalenciagaJil SanderArmaniYves Saint Laurent and Chanel.
