Profile Bio Text
Emily Jean "Emma" Stone (born November 6, 1988) is an American actress and model. She made her feature film debut in Superbad (2007). She has co-starred in The House Bunny (2008), Zombieland (2009), and Paper Man (2009). In 2010, Stone played the lead role in Easy A, for which she received a nomination for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. Other notable roles have included Skeeter Phelan in The Help (2011), Gwen Stacy in the Amazing Spider-Man film series (2012, 2014), and the voice of Eep in the animated film The Croods (2013).
Stone was born in Scottsdale, Arizona, to Jeff Stone, a founder and CEO of a general-contracting company, and Krista (née Yeager), a homemaker. Her parents are co-owners of the Camelback Golf Club, and Stone lived on the grounds of the Camelback Inn resort from the age of twelve. She has a brother Spencer, who is two years younger. Stone's paternal grandfather, Conrad Ostberg Stone, was of Swedish descent, and his family's original surname "Sten" was anglicized to "Stone" when immigrating to the U.S. through Ellis Island. Her other ancestry is Pennsylvania Dutch, English, Scottish, and Irish.
Stone attended Sequoya Elementary School and then Cocopah Middle School for the sixth grade. She was homeschooled for two years, during which time she appeared in sixteen productions at Valley Youth Theatre, including The Princess and the Pea, Alice in Wonderland, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and performed with the theater's improv comedy troupe. Her parents also sent her for private lessons with a local acting coach who had worked at the William Morris Agency in the 1970s and still had Hollywood connections.
Stone attended Xavier College Preparatory, an all-girl Catholic high school, as a freshman for one semester. Despite this, she was raised as a Lutheran. She gave a PowerPoint presentation to her parents, set to the Madonna song "Hollywood", to convince them to let her move to California for an acting career. In January 2004, at the age of fifteen, she moved with her mother to a Los Angeles apartment and began homeschooling again. Stone is naturally blonde. She won her first role as a teenager after dyeing her hair dark brown. Then Judd Apatow, the producer of Superbad, had Stone dye her hair from dark brown to red for her role in the film. She returned to blonde for her role in The Amazing Spider-Man.
