You can’t look anywhere nowadays without seeing her, and Emma Stone just keeps getting hotter with every film that comes out.
But the “Help” hottie isn’t willing to throw caution to the wind and live the carefree celebrity lifestyle, as she sees fame as a ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ sort of thing.
Ms. Stone explained, “Don’t put the farm on it. Success is such a fleeting thing. I’ve seen how the careers of people I look up to ebb and flow, so I don’t get carried away by it.”
Emma continued, “I’m a big believer in impermanence. It’s sort of a wonderful feeling when something bad is going on because you know it will end, and when something good is happening I try not to hold on to it too tight because I know it will go. And the articles, the magazine covers – that’s not really me. The only thing I worry about is how I’m going to play a character, and then I can go to sleep at night knowing I’m not selling my soul.”
As for her widely varying roles, Stone stated, “I’m lucky enough to have a choice right now, which is really rare. It’s also a brilliant learning experience. I didn’t go to drama school so working with actors or directors I respect, and trying to do things I haven’t had the opportunity to do before, feels really important. I need to learn and soak up as much as possible.”
And when it comes to body image, Emma has insecurities just like everyone else. “I do have that thing of, ‘Oh my God, I’m disgusting – I ate a huge Wagamama lunch, the whole yaki soba, and I feel so fat.’ But I’m still gonna eat that stuff, and you know what? You can get nice, loose clothes that cover it all up. I’m not gonna go parading around in a bikini. OK, I did that in a photoshoot once, but it’s about what you’re comfortable with at the time you’re comfortable with it. That was a good day, but you won’t hear me saying I have no body issues because I wouldn’t be human if I didn’t.”
