I’m somewhere in the middle of gorgeous and strange. Part of me thinks she looks great on the July cover of Vogue, and part of me thinks she looks almost fake? It’s hard to put my finger on it. All I know is that photo below of her in the newsboy hat is by far the worst picture of Emma I’ve EVER seen. Even though these pictures were done by the amazing Mario Testino, I’m not sure I’m in love with this photoshoot.
Here’s more from Vogue:
This summer finds 23-year-old Emma Stone dangling from the rooftops in herblockbuster breakout as Peter Parker’s brainy blonde girlfriend in The Amazing Spider-Man—and gracing her first-ever cover of Vogue.
With photos shot by Mario Testino, Stone cultivates a persona all her own, an innate, antic glamour that’s inspired as much by Diane Keaton’s Annie Hall style as Lanvin and Giambattista Valli. And in July’s profile, Nathan Heller encounters the actress at the cusp of a pivotal transformation in her young career, after earningher reputation as Hollywood’s go-to girl for strong, spunky characters bridging unreconciled worlds, going brunette for Superbad and making her move from comedy to The Help.
“Working with Emma was like diving into a thrilling, twisting river and never holding on to the sides,” says her Spider-Man costar Andrew Garfield. “From the start. To the end. Spontaneous. In the moment. Present. Terrifying. Vital. The only way acting with someone should be.”
In our cover story, Stone recounts what it’s like to see her childhood dreams come true (appearing at the Oscars in February, hosting Saturday Night Live); confesses to a history of panic attacks and how she learned, growing up in Arizona, to channel that anxiety into laughter (“Comedy was my sport”); and reveals how she launched into acting at the age of fourteen (to convince her parents to let her move to L.A. to pursue her dream, she made a PowerPoint presentation). That may have been her first major performance—now, as Spider-Man leaps into theaters, we’ll see her hanging from the precipice, perfectly poised for her next big moment.
I am still having a hard time understanding why we needed another Spider-Man movie. It hasn’t been that long since Tobey Maguire played the super-hero. I love a good Marvel movie, but this one I’m not dying to see. I guess I don’t see the point in making another Spider-Man movie so quick. It’s obviously for money – and money only – and I just hope the movie doesn’t suck as bad as I think it will.
What do you think? Excited to see the new movie?
