OMG, 21 Things You Don't Know About Emma Stone (Part Two)
Emma Stone is fine with battling zombies on the big screen, but don't get her near needles or spiders, or fling her over your head. Ever. She told Jay Leno: "I have two phobias: one of being lifted over somebody's head, which was the issue with Crazy, Stupid, Love., and the other phobia is getting my blood drawn. Needles." She was also scared to death when Ellen DeGeneres brought out fake spiders during an interview.
The actress waited 21 long years before getting her ears pierced. In one shot she got two holes in her left earlobe and three in her right. "Most people go through this when they’re like, 14," she revealed. "I’m like, ‘Hey, what’s up everybody? I moved to New York and got fiive piercings!”
Talk about embarrassing: This star found out she had asthma while filming a rigorous fake sex scene in 2010's Easy A. Stone explained: "I had a little asthma attack, without any prior knowledge that I had asthma, during the scene where we had to jump up and down for hours and hours screaming and yelling on the bed. [It] was humiliating, because it was the second day of shooting."
Stone grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona, and convinced her parents to up and move her to L.A. using a PowerPoint presentation set to Madonna's song "Hollywood." Apparently she was pretty convincing. In January 2004 she dropped out of her all-girls school and moved with her mom to Tinseltown.
These days, the bubbly redhead has no problem scoring roles. A few years back, it was a different story. She lost out on the role of Claire Bennet in Heroes back in 2007 (to Hayden Panettiere) and says the experience was "rock bottom." Luckily, she landed her first movie role the same year.
Stone has run from zombies, played a ghost, and learned how to play the bass for her movies over the years. She honed her musical talents for The Rocker in 2008. That year she also starred in The House Bunny and sang the single from the film, a cover of "I Know What Boys Like."
Just before landing her first lead role in Easy A, Stone played an Australian shepherd on the big screen. She was the voice of the dog Mazie in the film adaptation of the comic strip Marmaduke, which follows a Great Dane and his pals.
