Emma Stone covers the May 2015 issue of Interview, where she is promoting her new film, Aloha.
On Andrew Garfield: “He is such a poet. But that’s the way he writes in general. So I hear it and of course my heart swells up. And I also know that he writes things like that on a daily basis… What a guy. He is a real Wordsworth.”
On her future: “[I feel] more ready than I ever have to do something incredibly different and challenging and scary. There’s something about having to go up and do it every night, no matter how you’re feeling, having to tell the whole arc of a story and not just scene by scene the way that you do on film. I feel more like I understand acting in a different way. It’s totally different when you’re shooting something. But only in the past six months to a year have I felt like I can really try these different things. I think I was really scared of that for a long time. And if something was really challenging, I thought that I was just going to fall on my face and embarrass myself. I’m just less scared of that now, of failing.”
On her childhood: “We did live on the 16th hole of the Camelback golf course. But it once said on Wikipedia that my parents owned the golf course, which could not be further from the truth. But if you’re in Arizona, you’re at least within a couple miles of, if not on, a golf course.”
On what makes her cry: “My favorite ending of all time is in City Lights , the Charlie Chaplin movie. I just watch the ending of that movie alone on YouTube and cry. (laughs) I think any even mediocre movie can be saved by a great ending. And vice versa. A great movie with the wrong ending can just tank the whole thing.”
