Emma Stone Covers WSJ. Magazine

Emma StoneEmma Stone recently covered WSJ. Magazine.

On relocating to California: “It feels different being by the water. You’d be surprised at how much of life can be taken up by doing yoga and nothing.”

On her current plans: “I was actually on the phone all day today, trying to put the pieces together. When I sit in my house for too long, I think too much — but I really like sitting in my house.”

On not being good at interviews: “[After saying we’d all be bones one day] Everyone at the table, all these 25-year-old women who worked at beauty websites, were just jaws-open horrified. But it’s true! We’re all going to die, and we’re not going to have faces anymore. So do what you want with your face, because it will be a skull pretty soon.”

On suffering panic attacks: “It was really bad. The first time I had a panic attack I was sitting in my friend’s house, and I thought the house was burning down. I called my mom and she brought me home, and for the next three years it just would not stop. I would go to the nurse at lunch most days and just wring my hands. I would ask my mom to tell me exactly how the day was going to be, then ask again 30 seconds later. I just needed to know that no one was going to die and nothing was going to change.”

On how acting helped her anxiety: “There’s something about the immediacy of acting. You can’t afford to think about a million other things. You have to think about the task at hand. Acting forces me to sort of be like a Zen master: What is happening right in this moment?”

On her relationship: “See, I never talk about this stuff for this exact reason — because it’s all so speculative and baseless. Once you start responding — once you’re like, ‘No, that’s not true’ — then they’re like, ‘Well, if we push enough, we’ll get a comment, so let’s see what else we can make up.’ I understand the interest in it completely because I’ve had it, too. But it’s so special to me that it never feels good to talk about, so I just continually don’t talk about it.”

On her reaction to having her email address and cell phone number published on WikiLeaks: “Then I did one of the worst things ever, which was react really quickly. I was getting all these emails and texts from people I didn’t know — ‘Hi, I’m Joe from the U.K. I like your movies’ — and I was so overwhelmed that I went to my in-box and I deleted all my emails. In about a 30-second span, I hit ‘Select All’ and ‘Delete Forever,’ and thousands of emails, like six years of emails, are now gone forever. I was just so freaked out that someone was in there. It was horrible. I cried for like an hour. Most of the emails I’m mourning I can still talk to the person and get them back. But there’s others where the person is actually gone. It really sucks.”
Emma Stone
On eating sugar cubes: “Do only children eat sugar cubes? Now I’m feeling weird about it. You eat one. My eye twitch that I get when I have too much caffeine is back.”
Emma Stone
On working with Woody Allen: “It’s terrifying. He doesn’t do table reads or any rehearsal. You can’t even ask questions about your character, because he’ll be like: ‘You know this is a movie, right?’”

On achieving success: “There’s this insane thing that happens where you get to a point where you start not just doing things because you’re lucky to have gotten the job, but you actually start making choices. But recently I’m starting to enjoy having experiences that I wouldn’t allow myself to have in real life — like Sally onstage, and the kind of mental breakdown she goes through. To do that in front of an audience was super liberating. I’m interested in things that are really scary and ambitious lately. Obviously Birdman was like that. And then doing the play, I was like, ‘This feels like it could totally go wrong every single day.’ And something about that feels vital. Is that a stupid thing to say?”
Emma Stone
On passing on the Ghostbusters reboot: “The script was really funny. It just didn’t feel like the right time for me. A franchise is a big commitment — it’s a whole thing. I think maybe I need a minute before I dive back into that water. That would be amazing. I would love that.”

On advice she received from Woody Allen: “He told me to keep some things I love just for me. The idea is to have some things that you don’t feel like you need to share with the world. To have some things that are only yours. Of course, now I’m doing a musical. I’m working on it.”
