Why does Emma Stone always dumb down her looks in magazines?

Okay, maybe it’s not EVERY time, but honestly, it’s enough times to make me remember she usually looks like a hot mess. On her Interview Magazine cover earlier this year, she was almost unrecognizable. She covered Vogue Magazine, and looked so bizarre, she almost looked like a robot. In fact, the last decent cover I’ve seen of Emma Stone was back in August 2011, when she landed the cover of Vanity Fair. She looked absolutely adorable. So what’s with all these weird photo shoots she’s been doing lately? Why is she afraid to look cute (like she is!)? Who’s to blame??

She looks like a big ol’ hot mess in these new pictures for the February issue of W Magazine. Here are some highlights from the interview:

On her role in ‘Gangster Squad’: “Grace Faraday, who moved to Hollywood in the ’40s to become a star and ended up falling in with Mickey Cohen, a very well-known gangster, and his brood. Grace is also having an affair with Jerry Wooters, portrayed by Ryan Gosling. He’s one of the cops investigating Mickey Cohen. Grace is playing with fire—she’s constantly torn, caught in that classic conundrum between good and evil.”

On starring in dramas lately, rather than comedies: “In real life, sometimes it’s uncomfortable for me not to go for the joke. I’ve been looking at that in myself lately. Often, joking for me is a way of diffusing the awkwardness of a situation, so it’s kind of exhilarating to be a part of projects where there’s nothing funny or lighthearted.”

Presenting last year’s Oscars with Ben Stiller: “It was for best visual effects, so Ben and I had all these funny ideas. Planet of the Apes was nominated, so we thought we would bring a chimp onstage and I’d say, “Oh—it looks so real.” And Ben would be like, “It’s a real chimp.” And I’d be insisting, “Oh, my God—the work they do now is so staggering.” And he’d repeat, “It’s a real chimp.” But apparently, you can’t make the Oscar presentation about a particular movie or else the audience thinks you’re swaying the vote toward that movie. So instead, we pretended that Ben had been to the Oscars many times and I was this really overly enthusiastic Oscar presenter. I was very excited, and he was not…. Though a lot of people thought it was something else: When I came offstage, they were saying, “You were so drunk!” And I wasn’t. Not until after…”

On her first Oscars: “At first, when you go to premieres and award shows, you’re thinking, How the hell am I here? All these people I’ve never met are here, and it’s so cool! And then, as time goes on, it’s a little bit like, Ah…it’s more like work. There are only a couple of events where I’ve truly felt, That was an awesome night—and the Oscars was one of them.”

What movie makes her cry: “The end of City Lights makes me cry every time I see it—when Charlie Chaplin walks by the shop window and the once blind girl brings him a flower and pins it to his lapel. She’s always thought that he was a millionaire, but he was really a tramp. She feels his hand and says, “You?” And he nods. He says, “You can see now?” And she says, “Yes, I can see now.” They cut back to his face, and he lights up like you’ve never seen. That last line—“Yes, I can see now”—has so many meanings. It’s echoed in every great romantic movie since then and in every great moment of life.”

I won’t hold this photo shoot against her. I love her still…. :)

Who’s going to see ‘Gangster Squad’? I’m totally going to see it (Sean Penn, Josh Brolin and Ryan Gosling in the SAME MOVIE!?) but I wish it was getting better reviews. It’s currently getting a 34% on Rotten Tomatoes, and I usually agree with them. 34% means the movie is probably going to really suck – but will that stop me? Probably not. Have any of you seen it yet? I’d love to hear your opinion!

WTF is going on with her? WHY is she SO SO skinny? It’s really kinda scaring me. I LOVE her. She has always been thin, but this is ridiculous. Please eat Emma!! ♥

I agree – she really needs to eat something. She definitely looks better with some meat on her bones! (And a little color on her skin wouldn’t hurt either. She’s almost transparent!)

Hot mess? I LOE these pictures! And she, like me, is pear shaped. She looks small on top, but you’ll notice she still has ample thighs. I don’t think she’s anorexic or anything. I think these pictures are beautiful, artistic, and sort of “French” looking.
