Emma Stonw did an interview with Fairlady for the September issue. Check out a few highlights from from interview below.
On taking comedic roles:
“I would much rather be seen as funny than sexy. And I love watching comedies. When I was growing up, I fell in love with the old ‘Saturday Night Live’ shows and I was inspired by people like Steve Martin, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, and John Candy. They were real trailblazers for me.”
“My mother started taking me to acting classes because she thought it would help me focus my energies. I was this really anxious kid in grad school. I had my first panic attack when I was eight years old. I don’t know why, but as a kid I worried about things like our house burning down, and I’d wring my hands all the time. So my parents took me to a therapist. While I was figuring things out, something happened where I just thought, okay, all right, I want to act.”
On living the Hollywood lifestyle:
“Sometimes it’s hard to adjust to all the traveling and being away so much. You go into this microcosm of people and you get really close and then you leave and you never really see them again. And then you go somewhere else and do it all over again. It’s like one summer camp after another, without ever going home in between.”
