Emma Stone has had quite the charmed career so far, winning over critics and audiences alike with her roles in Easy A, The Help and Crazy, Stupid, Love. But it's not just her movie roles she gets noticed for -- it's her down-to-earth persona and impressive comedic timing, as evidenced by her always show-stealing awards presentations.
Yes, this is the girl that managed to outshine Ben Stiller at the Oscars and referenced Drake's YOLO at this year's MTV Movie Awards.
So clearly, Emma is no longer the next "It" girl -- she IS the "It" girl ... who gets a "Trailblazer" award at just 23 years old?!
Unsurprisingly, her fellow male Hollywood colleagues have also taken notice of her, and in a new candid interview with New York magazine, she talks about her current boyfriend Andrew Garfield and that "creepy" Jim Carrey video declaring his full-on crush on her.
"Not too shabby, eh?," Emma says about Garfield, who's also her co-star in The Amazing Spider-Man. But aside from acknowledging that they're a couple, she remains tight-lipped about their relationship -- but does get candid about getting freaked out by the paparazzi's fixation on them. One particularly disturbing incident occurred when an editor at Us Weekly saw her and Garfield at a restaurant and alerted photographers, who rushed the place and followed them to their apartment, where the paparazzi set up camp and didn't leave for over a month.
"One guy told me, 'This is my job. I'm going to be here every day now,'" Stone says. "I cried in front of this guy. When you hear this at eight o'clock in the morning, you're like, Oh my God, my life as I know it is gone."
As for the YouTube video of Jim Carrey professing his love for her, Emma says she was more flattered by it then creeped out like some viewers.
"I was so flattered I can't even tell you. Honest!" she says. "But I've always had like weird connections with men in their forties and fifties. I mean, not in a creepy way. I've never been attracted to them. But I have always become, like, pals with guys in that age group."
Her Spider-Man director Marc Webb has a theory on why.
"I think she actually is a 48-year-old man," he says. "She's a 48-year-old man who has figured out how to create the perfect woman."
