Emily Jean Stone was born in Scottsdale, Arizona on November 6, 1988. She began participating in local theater at a young age, and took voice lessons for several years. Her acting debut was in a stage production of “The Wind in the Willows” when she was eleven. During a two year period where she was homeschooled, she appeared in a total of sixteen productions at the Valley Youth Theatre in Phoenix.
After only one semester of high school at Xavier College Preparatory, Stone convinced her parents to let her move to California to pursue an acting career. In January 2004, her mother moved with her to Los Angeles, where Stone took online high school classes, worked part-time at a dog-treat bakery, and auditioned for roles.
Stone goes by the name “Emma” instead of her birth name “Emily” because the name “Emily Stone” was already taken when she registered for the Screen Actors Guild. Her first few roles in California included her television debut as Laurie Partridge on the VH1 talent competition show “In Search of the New Partridge Family” (2004), a guest appearance on “Lucky Louie”, and the role of Violet Trimble in the Fox drama “Drive” (2007).
Her film debut came in the 2007 comedy “Superbad”, which she co-starred in with Michael Cera and Jonah Hill. Other early films she was in include 2008 comedy “The Rocker” and romantic comedy “The House Bunny” (2008). The year 2009 saw Stone in three different films, “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past” and “Paper Man”, both unpopular with critics, as well as “Zombieland”, which was her most profitable venture that year, grossing $102.3 million.
Breakthrough and Success
It wasn’t until her starring role in the 2010 teen comedy film “Easy A” that Stone had her Hollywood breakthrough. For her performance as Olive Penderghast, Stone received nominations for the BAFTA Rising Star Award and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, and won the MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance.
She continued her streak of success with “Crazy, Stupid, Love” (2011), for which she was the Choice Movie Actress – Comedy Award at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards. It was also a box office success, grossing $142.9 million globally despite its modest $50 million production budget. Her film “The Help” (2011) was an even greater success, grossing $216 million against a budget of $25 million, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.
In 2012 Stone appeared as Gwen Stacy, Spider-Man’s love interest, in “The Amazing Spider-Man”, a role she reprised in 2014 in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”. In 2014 Stone also co-starred in the critically acclaimed “Birdman”, which was the most successful film at the 87th Academy Awards with nine nominations and four wins.
Her two films in 2015, “Aloha” and “Irrational Man”, were critical and commercial disappointments. However, while starring in a revival of the Broadway musical “Cabaret” from November 2014 to February 2015, Stone met director Damien Chazelle, who was impressed by her performance and cast her in his musical comedy-drama “La La Land”. “La La Land” (2016) was a huge success, earning over $440 million at the box office against a $30 million budget, and earning Stone an Academy BAFTA, Golden Globe and SAG Award for Best Actress.
The 2017 release “Battle of the Sexes” was a commercial failure despite positive reviews from critics. For her role in it as tennis player Billie Jean King, Stone gained 15 pounds by drinking high-calorie protein shakes. Stone continued to challenge herself, learning a British accent for historical comedy-drama “The Favourite” (2018), where she was the only American among an all-British cast. She also expanded into producing, serving as executive producer for the Netflix miniseries “Maniac” (2018), which she also featured in, reuniting with her “Superbad” co-star Jonah Hill for the project.
In addition to her acting in front of the camera, Stone has also had a success career as a voice actress. She voiced a role in the crime video game “Sleeping Dogs”, released in 2012, for which she was nominated for a Spike Video Game Award for Best Performance by a Human Female. She also has voiced characters in several animated films, such as “Marmaduke” (2010) and “The Croods” (2013).
Although never officially confirmed, Stone was reported by the media to have dated “The Amazing Spider-Man” co-star Andrew Garfield from 2010 to 2015. Since 2017, Stone has been in a relationship with Dave McCary, segment director for “Saturday Night Live”, and the couple became engaged in December 2019.
Stone’s mother was diagnosed with breast cancer, and recovered from it in 2008. Since then, the actress has appeared in several campaigns promoting breast cancer awareness, including a Revlon campaign. She also featured in a fundraiser video collaboration between “Star Wars” and the organization Stand Up to Cancer in 2011.
