This Redhead Left No Stone Unturned

Emily Jean "Emma" Stone is a twenty-six-year-old American actress and model, born in Scottsdale, Arizona, to parents who own the Camelback Golf Club. She lived on the grounds from the age of twelve.

Stone was home schooled for two years while appearing in productions at Valley Youth Theatre, including The Princess and the Pea, Alice in Wonderland, and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and performed with the theater's improv comedy troupe.

Stone's low-pitched husky voice comes from frequent screaming as an infant, resulting in the development of nodules. Hey, I read it in Wikipedia.

Stone is naturally blonde. She won her first role as a teenager after dyeing her hair dark brown. Judd Apatow, the producer of Superbad, then had Stone dye her hair from dark brown to red for her role in the film. And that's good enough for me.

 Stone made her feature film debut in the comedy Superbad (2007) with Michael Cera and Jonah Hill, directed by Greg Mottola. Stone co-starred with Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and Michael Douglas in the romantic comedy Ghosts of Girlfriends Past (2009), a takeoff of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, directed by Mark Waters.

Stone also co-starred with Jeff Daniels, Ryan Reynolds and Lisa Kudrow in Kieran and Michelle Mulroney's comedy Paper Man.

Stone co-starred with Ryan Gosling and Sean Penn in the crime drama film Gangster Squad, directed by Ruben Fleischer and based on a true story set in the 1940s.

In May 2013, it was announced that Stone had signed on to co-star in Woody Allen's comedy Magic in the Moonlight with Colin Firth, set in the 1920s on the French Riviera.

Thanks to Emily, Arizona, and Wikipedia.
