With her striking beauty and sincere talent, Golden Globe nominated actress EMMA STONE (Eep), is claiming her role as one of Hollywood's most sought out actresses. Stone can currently be seen opposite Ryan Gosling and Sean Penn in Warner Bros., Gangster Squad. The film, set in 1949, portrays the take down of LA gangster Mickey Cohen.
Last year, Stone appeared in Columbia Pictures' smash hit, The Amazing Spider-Man. The Amazing Spider-Man was a huge success this past summer and generated over $700 million worldwide at the box office. Emma will soon reprise her role as Gwen Stacy in the second installment of the franchise feature. The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is slated for release in May 2014.
Stone recently signed on to exec-produce and star in GK Films', Little White Corvette. This marks Stone's first role as a producer. Stone is also attached to the untitled Cameron Crowe project which should begin production sometime in fall 2013.
Stone's additional film credits include Easy A, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination and an MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance, the award winning drama The Help, the romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, Screen Gems' Friends with Benefits, the independent drama Paper Man, the Twentieth Century Fox comedy Marmaduke, Columbia Picture's hit comedy Zombieland, the Warner Bros. romantic comedy Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, the Columbia Pictures/Happy Madison hit comedy, The House Bunny, Twentieth Century Fox's The Rocker, and the Judd Apatow comedy Superbad.
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 Spider-Man, started the organization and got Stone involved. In addition to SU2C, Stone recently became 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.
A native of Arizona, Emma currently splits her time between New York and LA.
