Emma Stone’s well-deserved and timely Vogue cover will finally hit the stands April 29. As a preview of what is to come, it has been reported that the highly-stylized magazine finds The Amazing Spider-Man 2 heroine jovial, casual, and not too ashamed to mention she has definitely Googled herself. “I don’t usually like what I find,” she mentioned to Vogue, “but some of it is really funny.”
The most comical finding of late was when the Arizona-born star came across an Internet “diss” calling the freckled redhead a “bland basic b–tch.” She realized the comment was intended to be insulting, but she could not help but laugh at the moniker. She says she now refers to herself as that “bland basic b–tch” regularly when she needs a good laugh.
With The Amazing Spider-Man sequel premiere only a blink away, Stone, 25, has recently been a frequently Googled celebrity, and it is refreshing that she is able to take it all in stride. As she continues to embark on even more high-profile endeavors, such as an un-named Cameron Crowe project and a Woody Allen flick, the Superbad actress may need to get used to more derisive Internet chatter.
She has already gotten a good dose of Web-time considering her no-longer private three-year romance with costar, boyfriend Andrew Garfield, Spidey himself. Online publications are eager for any information regarding the two’s relationship. Although they have done a modest and adequate job of keeping their feelings for each other on the down low, Spider-Man director Mark Webb told Vogue the pair exchanges their fair share of “nonverbal cues.” According to others who have worked alongside them on the film, their chemistry is not something that can be kept under wraps or faked.
Fans will have a chance to see their chemistry in the anxiously-awaited Marvel sequel when the on-and-off-screen couple reprise their roles as Gwen Stacy and Peter Parker. Regarding working together, both have commented on each other in respectable and honorable ways, edifying one another and their talents.
In regards to Garfield, Stone said she learned so much by simply being around her boyfriend on the superhero set, and she appreciated the time together, because he is such an important person to her. “It’s been fun working with him just because of who he is as an actor and person. I think it would be fun no matter what.”
Garfield, who has been even more reticent regarding the relationship than his lovely girlfriend, sent Vogue an email describing what it is like for them to work in tandem: “I thank my lucky stars that we’ve been able to be on this ride together. We all need companions in the mystery to get you out of your head and into your heart, to moan to and to take the piss out of it all with.”
Despite what Miss Emily Jean Stone finds when she Googles herself, the laid-back personality of the rising star is anything but basic or bland. Her ability to be poised and casual simultaneously resulted in many charmingly approachable images to be presented in Vogue’s next issue. Chances are the Easy A actress and her fans will like what they find in the glossy pages, appropriately vacant of any jarring or ill-fitted monikers.
