Rising starlet Emma Stone opened up to Elle magazine about her career, but wouldn't talk about her boyfriend, actor Kieran Culkin.
â€œYou have to keep some things sacred," the actress said. But, she did admit that she hopes celebrity relationships aren't less likely to survive than others.
- â€œI donâ€™t think thatâ€™s true [that celebrity relationships don't work]. Maybe. But thereâ€™s a fair amount that do work ... Iâ€™m optimistic.â€
Stone, 22, might have a boyfriend now, but she says she wasn't always so cute -- saying sarcastically: â€œI sucked my thumb until I was 11, so I had this expander in. I was a good-looking kid. I never felt, like, dorky. I was just like, â€˜Yup, these are my braces. Iâ€™ve had them forever.â€™â€
Emma talked about the struggles of Hollywood, saying she doesn't get upset if people don't recognize her ("I mean, I haven't been around very long," she says), and told the mag about a long-ago encounter with Hayden Panettiere! Read her story after the jump.
Emma said she and Hayden were up for the same part years ago: â€œItâ€™s so funny how different life could have been," she said. "I went to so many auditions. I remember my audition for Heroes. I went in right after Hayden Panettiere.â€
Emma has been acting since she was a young teen, when she moved to Hollywood.
Stone also talked about how she wishes actresses wouldn't exercise so much:
- â€œI like to look like a person. It drives me crazy when you see women in movies playing teachers, and they have biceps. It totally takes me out of the movie. I start thinking, Wow, that actress playing this part really looks great!â€
Ultimately, Stone says she's trying to enjoy fame while she can.
- â€œI know itâ€™s so fleeting. Iâ€™ll kick my ass later on if I donâ€™t enjoy it right now. But it does make you realize that so much of the joy of it is the journey. The struggle is such a lovely part of it.â€
She next stars in The Help.
