I love Emma Stone! In the new issue of Glamour Magazine, the actress opens up in a candid interview!
GLAMOUR: You’re one of Glamour’s new faces of Hollywood. Do you feel like one?
EMMA STONE: [Puts on a mock glamour face and breathes in a sexy voice.] Hell, yeah. [Laughs.] That’s really flattering. I just like to keep working and being able to pay my bills.
GLAMOUR: You got a Golden Globe nomination for Easy A. What were you thinking when that happened?
EMMA STONE: I didn’t expect it at all. And I got to sit next to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie [at the ceremony], so…
GLAMOUR: You did?
EMMA STONE: My mom was with me; she was my date. She was saying things [to them] like, “Do you have kids? Let me tell you something.” I was like, “Mom, you know they have kids. It’s Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. You are aware they have kids.” It was so awesome.
GLAMOUR: Moms can get away with that stuff! What’s the best advice she has given you?
EMMA STONE: Oh, my Lord. She is the greatest person on earth. She always helps me deal with things as they happen instead of planning them all out ahead of time. But that’s one of 600 billion pieces of advice she’s given me. [Laughs.]
GLAMOUR: As the story goes, you wanted to leave high school and move to L.A., and begged your parents with a PowerPoint presentation. You were obviously very driven. Were you also terrified?
EMMA STONE: I had massive anxiety as a child. I was in therapy. From 8 to 10, I was borderline agora-phobic. I could not leave my mom’s side. I don’t really have panic attacks anymore, but I had really bad anxiety. There was a lot of fear, but it was also very exciting.
GLAMOUR: Of all the careers you could have picked, this was the craziest, no?
EMMA STONE: But it got me out of that. It made me feel great. I started doing improv the year after my tough two years. It helped.
