Emma Stone is a throwback to the days of American screwball comedies, when a beauty could also be madcap and outrageous
True to her age, she draws inspiration from sketch comedy and improvisation, giving her characters a looseness and spontaneity that is distinctly current
In 2010, Stone had a voice role in Marmaduke, a film adaptation of the long-running comic strip about a Great Dane
Although she’s been acting since she was a child, Stone is not jaded, self-conscious, or predictable she seems to be up for anything
On her fame: “I've got a great family and great people around me that would be able to kick me in the shins if I ever for one minute got lost up in the clouds. I've been really lucky in that sense".
She stated in 2008 that she would eventually like to venture into film production, producing her own films, and that her dream was to appear on Saturday Night Live

Although known as a redhead, Stone is naturally a blonde. She landed her first role as a teenager after dyeing her hair dark brown
Stone was voted #6 on Ask Men's top 99 'most desirable' women of 2012.
Bright-eyed and totally unafraid to pull funny faces, Stone has amongst other things already been heralded as one of the great comic actresses of her generation
