Emma Stone’s latest movie, La La Land, is coming out in December, which means we’re about to see and hear from her a lot more in the next little while. Emma’s first stop on her publicity tour was the cover of November’s Vogue, where she worked the $10 Short n’ Sassy special from HouseOfWigs.com. Who knew that if you put Emma Stone in a ginger pixie cut and told her to pose as if she was about to break out into the giggles, you’d get Peter Pan by way of SNLs Stefon? I feel like if Emma takes her wrists away from her mouth, she’ll start telling you about Neverland’s hottest club. “It’s called Tinkerballs. It’s located in the basement of my treehouse and is hosted by DJ Jealous Mermaid and Nana the Saint Bernard.”
Emma also talked to Vogue about the gender wage gap and about going to a party at Paris Hilton’s house.
On going to a Paris Hilton party when she was 17: “I saw someone puking in a closet. I don’t remember who it was, but I was like, ‘Do you think that’s a bathroom? Or is the line too long?'”
On the gender wage gap: “We should all be treated fairly and paid fairly. I’ve been lucky enough to have equal pay to my male costars. Not ‘lucky.’ I’ve had pay equal to my male costars in the past few films. But our industry ebbs and flows in a way that’s like, ‘How much are you bringing into the box office?’ ‘How much are you the draw or is the other person the draw?’…It’s a weird conversation to have because it’s trying to see oneself from the outside. What are we at [nationally]? Seventy-nine cents to the dollar? It’s insane. There’s no excuse for it anymore.”
On breaking up with Andrew Garfield earlier this year: “Someone I still love very much…It’s been interesting. It’s been a good year. And sad. Pros and cons.”
On playing tambourine for Prince at SNLs 40th anniversary show afterparty while looking the opposite of glamorous: ” I’d taken off my shoes to dance because I am one of those people who dance at parties. And I stepped in broken glass. It was embedded into my heel. I walked off and was bleeding all over the place. [Someone] grabbed a knife and took the glass out of my foot. I swear to God. And then 60 seconds later, one of the SNL people was like, ‘Prince is onstage. Do you want to go on and play the tambourine?'”
Let this be a lesson to all those people – and you know who you are – whose shoes come off the second the rhythm hits them at a party. Best case scenario, your drunk ass steps in glass. Worst case scenario, it happens in the presence of a living legend.
Because La La Land is all about ~making it~ in Hollywood, Emma did a Hollywood dream-themed photoshoot for Vogue. But where is the shot of her sitting in the studio apartment in North Hollywood that she shares with 3 strangers from Craigslist searching Backstage.com for infomercial auditions before her shift at the Cheesecake Factory at The Americana in Glendale?
