performance landed her an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress
as well as a Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, and Film Independent Spirit
She recently wrapped production on Battle of the Sexes, in which Stone will play

Dayton and Valerie Faris, the film will tell the story of former tennis champ

Stone recently completed her Broadway run playing the iconic 'Sally Bowles' in
Rob Marshall's production of Cabaret. The New York Times said, "Emma Stone is
scintillating in an irresistible Broadway debut. Her Sally is wild, fierce and
heartbreaking - someone you're unlikely to forget. She provides a very good
reason to revisit Cabaret."
When she's not filming, Stone is an advocate for Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C), a
groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research that
will get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now. Laura Ziskin, the
late producer of The Amazing Spiderman, started the organization and got Stone
involved. In addition to SU2C, Stone is also an ambassador for Gilda's Club New
York City. Named for the late comedian and original cast member of SNL, Gilda
Radner, Gilda's Club offers a place where people dealing with cancer can join
together to build social and emotional support. Stone has
become an active member in the Gilda's Club community and continues to do so by
engaging with their younger departments for children and teens.
Native of Arizona, Emma currently lives in Los Angeles.
