Emma Stone Quotes

Emma Stone Quotes On Balance

Sometimes you’re not like the person you’d want to hang out with. Would I really want to hang out with me full time? No, you’ve gotta find people who balance you out.

The importance of balance is huge but I think it is for everybody. It’s a big issue for at least anyone that I talk to in any career.

That balance of love

That balance of love for your work and love in your life is an interesting thing.

It’s like a puzzle, putting together your individual accent and what you grew up with or what you heard. It must be insane to be a dialect coach, to balance all that out.

Emma Stone Quotes On Character

I’m not there to be the token sexy girl. I don’t know that I would ever be able to pull that off. It’s nice that those characters I’ve played feel uncomfortable as well because it’s so much more realistic.

I can’t help moving my face – reacting – when I watch a movie, because I’m really inhabiting a character. I know this is weird, but it demonstrates what I love about cinema: it allows you to live a different life, to have a different experience, to disappear for two hours. I think it’s wonderful.

I think Skeeter even says that when she calls up Miss Stein. “No one asked Mammy how she feels in Gone With The Wind.” Mammy wasn’t really much of a fleshed-out character. She was just kind of there to take care of Miss Scarlett.

You have to play the character in the best way you know how and do what you need to do in order to bring that character to life and not worry about the millions of people that you may be disappointing!

For me, the political part of being an actor is very tough. To sit somewhere and tell somebody why you should feel this way or that way about my character does not feel like my responsibility. It feels like the responsibility of the writer and the person who created it.

As an actor, you have to

As an actor, you have to just think about the truth of your character. You have to think about how to play the character in the way that you know it needs to be played in your heart and why you were hired.

A lot of times I feel like people come up to me because they think I’m like my character in Easy A, or because they’ve seen me in interviews, but really what they’re a fan of is a movie or a character.

In some ways, comedy and something like a musical do go hand-in-hand.

Comedy’s my first love. I love that so much. You play comedy in drama, too. The difference between genres doesn’t really change the method of acting.

I always loved acting and improv and sketch comedy and theater, which I did at a local youth theater.

People aren’t stupid. People wanna see good movies, especially comedies. Those by the books comedies, I don’t get it. Who likes those? Nobody likes those.

I was mostly into comedies, growing up. That still will always be my favorite thing.

Drama is this incredibly vulnerable thing, but with comedy, you have to have a sense of rhythm and be very sensitive to the pace of things.

Emma Stone Quotes On Feelings

Improv is what helped me overcome the anxiety that I was feeling sometimes. It’s the thing that pushes me to be present, and to keep moving through all of the what-ifs that go through my mind.

I definitely understood the feeling of moving to Los Angeles and having a dream to be an actor in films and to get to be a part of things that I loved and inspire people in some way.

Dancing is such a

Dancing is such a community feeling.

I more remember the periods of time when I wasn’t getting any auditions. That’s more what I find painful in memory; that feeling of not even getting the chance to try and be rejected.

Emma Stone Quotes On Mom

My mom [has] always been my hero. Watching her experience something like breast cancer was pivotal, I think in my whole family’s life and experience. She is one strong lady.

My mother has always been my emotional barometer and my guidance. I was lucky enough to get to have one woman who truly helped me through everything.

On the first day of middle school I wore high-heeled shoes that you weren’t allowed to wear. I remember being so embarrassed because in every class I went to they kept pointing out that I couldn’t wear these shoes. I wanted to call my mom and have her bring me new shoes!

I had massive anxiety as a child. I was in therapy. From 8 to 10, I was borderline agora-phobic. I could not leave my mom’s side. There was a lot of fear, but it was also very exciting.

My mom lost her dad at a very young age, and has this sort of belief system of, you know, “If there’s something that you want to do, if there’s something that means a lot to you, do it now.”

Emma Stone Quotes On Parents

I think the number one thing that I find important is the importance of honesty with your friends and your parents, if you can be. But I think that telling people how you really feel, being who you truly are, being safe and taking care of yourself is the most important thing.

When I was 14 -years-old,

When I was 14 -years-old, I made this PowerPoint presentation, and I invited my parents into my room and gave them popcorn. It was called ‘Project Hollywood 2004’ and it worked. I moved to L.A. in January of 2004.

To go and accomplish a dream at 15, it doesn’t feel like you have all that much to lose because you’re in high school. You’re being home schooled. You get to kind of go for it in a different way. Your parents are still in charge.

Chemistry is like an indefinable thing. When it comes to people playing your best friend or your parents or anything like that, there’s always different kind of element to chemistry.

My parents always put more of an emphasis on who I was as opposed to what I achieved. They were never like, “You won that! You did this!” It was all about, “You’ve got a good heart. You’re a good friend. You’re a good daughter.” So that other stuff in no way defines my sense of self.

Emma Stone Quotes On School

I was raised in Arizona, and I went to public school, and the extent of my knowledge of the civil-rights movement was the story of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr. I wonder how much my generation knows.

There’s so much I’m interested in that I didn’t discover in high school. For ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’, because Gwen is a scientist, we went to a lab in San Diego, and we were learning about biology. And I’m fascinated! Because I never went to biology class in high school.

On the first day of middle school I wore high-heeled shoes that you weren’t allowed to wear. I remember being so embarrassed because in every class I went to they kept pointing out that I couldn’t wear these shoes. I wanted to call my mom and have her bring me new shoes!

I'm actually the last person

I’m actually the last person to ask about school. I kinda ducked out at 12, before all that stuff might have happened. I left school after sixth grade and was basically home-schooled after that.

To go and accomplish a dream at 15, it doesn’t feel like you have all that much to lose because you’re in high school. You’re being home schooled. You get to kind of go for it in a different way. Your parents are still in charge.
