Emma Stone, her co-star Penn Badgley and a few of their famous celebrity friends walked the red carpet in front of Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA for the premiere of their new film Easy A. Here are a few photos from the red carpet arrivals here in SoCal last night:
The film, which is being called the new Mean Girls, tells the tale of a young girl who pretends to have sex with a male friend in order to fortify his reputation at school and ends up ruining her reputation as a result. Instead of shying away from the rumors going on around her at school, she instead takes up the mantle of her supposed easy reputation and starts wearing a scarlet A on her chest much like Hester Prynne was forced to do in the novel The Scarlett Letter. My friend Darion was able to screen the film a couple of weeks ago and he couldn’t say enough good things about the film. Considering the hole left my Lindsay Lohan in Hollywood for these kinds of movies (ever since she self-destructed after the success of Mean Girls), Emma Stone is now poised to step in and fill that void. I really love the trailer for Easy A and am very excited to see the film when it opens this weekend. Emma Stone is one of those actresses who you always see in films but she never really gets a chance to shine as the lead … I really hope Easy A turns her into the movie star she needs to be. I love her entirely and wish nothing but success for her. See this movie, y’all!
