She’s having more and more success in career and she will appear in “The Help”, “Friends with Benefits”, and “Crazy, Stupid, Love” this summer. Now, Emma Stone covers Vanity Fair’s August 2011 issue. In the interview with the magazine, the 22-year-old actress talks about the pressure to stay thin in Hollywood, regrets, dropping out of high school and moving to Los Angeles to realize her dreams, her first job in a dog bakery, dealing with paparazzi and her personal life.
“Talking about this stuff is pretty new. . . the only solution I’ve come to when it comes to things like that — the health of my family or dating, really personal things — is not to talk about it,” she told the magazine.
About the pressure of facing paparazzi, Emma says: “[One] stands up while I’m walking to my car and is like, ‘Hey, Emma! Listen, I’m going to delete these pics. Here’s my card. If you ever go to the beach with your friends or walk out of your house in your pajamas, call me.’ He’s like, ‘But I’m deleting these pictures, see?’….These guys try to strike up a deal with you so you feel like they’re your friend. I didn’t even know that was a thing – that people would call them.”
The beautiful actress dropped out of high school and went to Hollywood to make her long lasting dream come true and become an actress, and she doesn’t regret about this at all. “I did Superbad in what would’ve been my senior year. I was playing a senior, and had I graduated I would’ve missed that opportunity, and had I missed that opportunity I wouldn’t be here right now,” Emma told Vanity Fair.
However, it wasn’t that easy from the beginning, as she had to work in a dog bakery in LA and also take some online courses simultaneously. About her job, she says: “I think three people called my specific cookies inedible to their dogs. I’m not a super-talented dog baker.” She also confesses that she “still lays out her clothes and sets her coffee-maker for the morning the night before”. “I think I’m a Type A personality who’s trying to convince herself she’s Type B,” Emma says.
Emma, who admitted that she was feeling a little nervous for the bikini cover shoot, also spoke about the great pressure of staying thin in Hollywood. “I’m definitely more conscious of it as I’ve gotten older. . . That [Tracy Anderson] diet, have you seen it? It’s like: Eat this diet, which is a palm-size piece of chicken and some beans, and work out two hours a day for the rest of your life,” Emma says.
