Fans of Emma Stone have been watching the young actress really transform herself over the years. Last year she landed on the top of Vogue‘s Best Dressed list, and her new look has everyone all abuzz. Recently we saw some really sweet pictures of Emma with Ryan Gosling, as the two promoted their new film Gangster Squad. The movie hasn’t been getting very strong reviews, but it’s been popular at the box office and I still wanna check it out. Emma recently covered W Magazine in a very striking, high-fashion shoot. Click inside to see the spread, and to read a few excerpts from the interview!
Emma Stone For W Magazine:
On whether it’s difficult to stay serious in dramas: “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.”
On the reaction to her Oscar presentation last year with Ben Stiller: “Thanks. 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 what movie made 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’m still, always, shocked at how different my little Jules looks… lol! But I love Emma– silly Emma, high-fashion Emma, whatever. It’s all good and I think I’m gonna have to pick this issue up. It’s W‘s Movie issue and since they blew me away with their Marion Cotillard cover shoot a while back (and I actually bought a copy… and it was totally worth it), methinks this one might be worth having too.
What do you guys think of Emma‘s shoot?
