The list: Emma Stone’s sizzling on-screen looks
Word that Emma Stone is quite scantily clad on the upcoming, February cover of W Magazine spread across the internet like wildfire, but the young starlet has been heating up the screen throughout the course of her career.
From getting swept away by Ryan Gosling in not one, but two movies ( “Gangster Squad” and “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”), to strutting her stuff as a modern day Hester Prynne-esque figure in “Easy A”, to fighting off hordes of the undead, we’ve seen Emma rock a variety of looks so vastly different that no human should be able to pull them all off.
But then, we really don’t think it’s fair she got to do this either. So, there’s that. Honestly, we could never stay mad at a girl who provides some of the best GIF material out there.
Instead, let us take a look at some of her many on screen looks.
Grace Faraday in ‘Gangster Squad’
The newly released “Gangster Squad” finds Ms. Stone reunited with Mr. Gosling, a consummation that is most decidedly devoutly to be wished. As the etiquette teacher/girlfriend of Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn), Stone’s Grace Faraday finds herself in a whole heap of trouble when she falls for Sgt. Jerry Wooters, a cop working to bring down Cohen.
Suffice it to say the two look stellar in period costumes, and naturally even better together. Even those who aren’t fans of the noirish tones the film affects are certain to appreciate its style.
Ellen Malloy in ‘Movie 43’
“Movie 43” is as yet unreleased, so Stone’s role is for the most part an unknown quantity. But this promotional image suggests she might partake in some karaoke or an open mike night.
If the trailer makes one thing clear it’s that “Movie 43” aims to out-raunch even the likes of “Superbad”, “The Hangover” and “Bridesmaids”. It’s odds on then, that the leopard print bra gets some screen time.
Natalie in ‘The House Bunny’
Stone really proved her comedic chops as a clueless brainiac who takes lessons in sex appeal from a former playmate in the funnier-than-it-has-any-right-to-be flick, “The House Bunny”. Stone is Natalie, the optimistic leader of an unpopular sorority in desperate need of more members. Her geektastic girl plays perfectly off of Anna Faris’ vampy, slightly-ditzy playmate.
Thanks to their new house mother the girls go from invisible to the attention-grabbing, extreme glam seen here, before finally settling somewhere in the middle.
Olive in ‘Easy A’
“Easy A” once again finds Stone in smart girl territory, but this time around tired of relentless pestering from a friend, her character, Olive makes up a tale of swiping her v-card that quickly makes her the recipient of some unwanted attention.
Kind-hearted soul that she is Olive agrees to help out a friend by staging an imaginary romp that soon has others asking for similar help. As things spiral out of control and Olive finds herself being ostracized she begins to sport lingerie and a red letter ‘A’ rather than back down.
Skeeter Phelan in ‘The Help’
Skeeter Phelan is far and away the most understated look of those compiled here, but let’s be honest, Stone even makes horn-rimmed glasses look good. That she can swing from sultry to understated with such ease is a testament to her acting ability, as much as her chameleonic ability to look good no matter what. Either way, we’re impressed.
Wichita in ‘Zombieland’
Stone was able to shed her endearingly sweet nature and have some fun as a gun-toting grifter in “Zombieland”. Good thing she’s got that smoldering look perfected, most of us could not pull-off world weary, zombie apocalypse survivor and love interest at the same time.
One plus about the end of the world, free reign of the chicest survival wear, assuming of course that you can clear the store of the undead without joining their ranks.
Hannah in ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love.’
Endearing as ever, Stone’s Hannah is the one girl who can bring Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling) to change his tomcatting ways in “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” As the career-minded girl who almost settled down with the wrong guy Stone rocks her red locks and manages to look adorable, even when soaking wet.
Again, not even fair.
Gwen Stacy in ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’
As Gwen Stacy, love interest of Peter Parker/Spider Man, we saw Stone with blonde hair and a bookish nature. The daughter of the police captain sworn to bring Spider Man in, she is most certainly forbidden fruit for Spidey, but that stops nothing. Stone shares great on-screen chemistry with her current squeeze, Andrew Garfield, and gets to wear some adorable coats in the process.
