EMMA STONE

Posted venerdì 23 gennaio 2015   |   1553 views   |   Women's Interest   |   Comments (0) From her latest award-winning film Birdman to making her broadway debut in Cabaret, Emma Stone is being braver than ever before about the roles she’s playing. She talks to Psychologies about feeling vulnerable, creative and occasionally overwhelmed

For Emma Stone, it’s all about living in the moment. ‘I don’t think I do it as often as I would like,’ she says in her trademark husky voice. ‘I think I get caught in my head a lot more often than I would like. It’s sort of my nature to think a little too much – the greatest thing is to be present in your own life. Does that make sense?’ she smiles. I meet Stone in the garden of one of Venice’s hotels. She’s here for the world premiere of her latest film, Birdman, at the Venice Film Festival. ‘Sometimes because of the nature of things – the moving around, jetlag and not living in your own home, being on location for long periods, working with people that you’ve always admired – it can be a little overwhelming.’ Stone, at just 26, has spent her formative teen to young adult years in the full, harsh glare of a media spotlight, ever since she made her film debut in the coming-of-age comedy Superbad and, a couple years later, delivered a Golden Globe- nominated performance as a high school student who is on the receiving end of malicious classroom gossip in the superb Easy A.
She’d wanted to be an actress since she was a little girl and, at 15, after making a PowerPoint presentation to her parents, Stone persuaded her mother, Krista, to move to Los Angeles, temporarily leaving her father, Jeffrey, who runs a construction company, and her younger brother at home in Arizona. It took a couple of years – and a host of auditions and small parts in TV shows – but the gamble paid off and her film CV, at a relatively tender age, shows a range that not only includes her first love, which is comedy (Zombieland, Magic In The Moonlight), but meaty, dramatic roles, too. She played aspiring journalist Skeeter Phelan, who decides to document the lives of African-American women working as maids in The Help, a mob girlfriend in Gangster Squad and the troubled daughter of a fading movie star (played by Michael Keaton) in the forthcoming Birdman.

However, being cast as Gwen Stacy opposite Andrew Garfield in the latest reboot of the successful Spider-Man franchise is what has shot her into the popular consciousness. (Garfield plays Peter Parker and their on-screen romance spilled over into real life; they’ve been a couple ever since.) As well as starring in Birdman, which has been tipped for an Oscar win, Stone has also just made her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles, opposite Alan Cumming as Emcee, in the Sam Mendes-directed musical Cabaret, which she will appear in until February.

Working with stars such as Bill Murray, Ryan Gosling and Michael Keaton, she’s obviously talented and a consumate professional but our conversation proves Stone is also very funny, smart and laughs a lot – another reason why we wanted her as Psychologies’ cover star.
