Easy A actress Emma Stone appears on the cover of Elle magazine’s July 2011 issue wearing a golden yellow Versace ostrich feather dress and a Lanvin necklace. Inside, Emma discusses having braces and wearing glasses while growing up, her nervous energy, and how her career has grown.
On having braces and wearing glasses while growing up: “And I sucked my thumb until I was 11, so I had this expander in. I was a good-looking kid. I never felt, like, dorky. I was just like, ‘Yup, these are my braces. I’ve had them forever.’”
On taking up baking in part to control her nervous energy: “It’s very controlled. You know, if you put in the same amount of whatever is in the recipe, it will come out all right.”
On how her career has grown: “These past two years, I’ve stopped having to remind myself to be present, which has been the greatest gift. Because I know it’s so fleeting. I’ll kick my ass later on if I don’t enjoy it right now. But it does make you realize that so much of the joy of it is the journey. The struggle is such a lovely part of it.”
