Emma Stone

Everyone loves a girl with a sense of humour. That’s why we rate actress Emma Stone so highly. Naturally talented and relatively new to the biz we decided to find out more.

Stone was home schooled for a few years as a teen, during which time she was in several local theatre productions. Once she realized that acting was her future, she made a PowerPoint convincing her parents to let her move from their home in Arizona to Hollywood to pursue her dream. This persuasive technique worked, and she was soon auditioning for shows on a regular basis.

Stone was originally discovered on the show The New Partridge Family, but when the show was cancelled after only one episode, she stayed in the business, making guest appearances on several shows including Medium and Malcolm in the Middle. She even starred in a short-lived show of her own, called Drive. When this didn’t work out, she turned to film.

Her first role was in the Judd Apatow classic Superbad, where she played Jules, the object of a high school boy’s affection. Stone won the Exciting New Face Award for this performance, and officially made a name for herself in comedy. She subsequently appeared in movies like House Bunny, Ghost of Girlfriends Past, Zombieland and The Rocker, where she began dating her co-star, singer Teddy Geiger. Her next role is in the teen flick Easy A, where she will play a high schooler in the centre of scandal. The film is due out this year.
