The actress is really funny, but this isn’t.
Emma Stone is hilarious. Hollywood loves her. Fans love her. And The Academy will soon surely love her.
But the “La La Land” star has faced her fair share of discrimination in the industry, mostly due to the fact that she’s a woman who has opinions. (Shocking, we know.) The 28-year-old actress, who covers Rolling Stone’s latest issue, told the magazine that she’s found her voice with projects like Damien Chazelle’s movie-musical ― about a struggling newcomer who can’t seem to book an acting gig in Tinseltown ― but it hasn’t always been that way.
“There are times in the past, making a movie, when I’ve been told that I’m hindering the process by bringing up an opinion or an idea,” Stone said, though adding that, sometimes, directors have used her personal one-liners in their movies, usually opting to give them to her male co-stars instead of her.
