Emma Stone Reveals Poor Things Scene That Made Her ‘Want To Puke’

Emma Stone Reveals Poor Things Scene That Made Her ‘Want To Puke’

Much has been made about all of the sexual content in the Oscar-nominated film Poor Things, but it turns out it was a very different type of scene that made its leading star Emma Stone “want to puke”. Yorgos Lanthimos’ new film centres around Bella Baxter, a young woman played by the La La Land star, who goes on a journey of self-discovery through experiencing global travel, heartbreak and, as we’re sure you’re aware, a fair bit of sex. During a section of the film set in Portugal, Bella indulges in the sweet delicacy pasteles de nata, which Emma had to eat 60 of during filming. And it turns out, this was a lot harder than any of her sex scenes.

Emma Stone explains why she thinks anxiety is ‘selfish condition’

Stay ahead of the trend in fashion and beyond with our free weekly Lifestyle Edit newsletter Stay ahead of the trend in fashion and beyond with our free weekly Lifestyle Edit newsletter Emma Stone has shared her candid take on why she thinks that anxiety is a “selfish condition”. The 35-year-old actor opened up about her own challenges with the mental health condition during an interview with Variety, published on 21 February. While discussing some personality traits about her character, Bella Baxter, in Poor Things, she acknowledged how the film shows “the idea of not living with that self-judgement or shame”. She then expressed how that perspective is different from the feelings of anxiety that she’s had, before detailing why she believes that the mental health conditions is a “selfish” one. “And part of the nature of anxiety is that you’re always watching yourself. In some ways – this is horrible to say – it’s a very selfish condition to have,” she said. “Not to insult other people with anxiety – I still have it …

Emma Stone Reveals Why She’s Done Joking About Taylor Swift

Emma Stone Reveals Why She’s Done Joking About Taylor Swift

Emma Stone has said she won’t be making any jokes about her pal Taylor Swift in the future, as it’s not worth the aggro from the singer’s die-hard fanbase. For the avoidance of doubt, Emma and Taylor have been friends for almost two decades, with the Grammy winner even dedicating a song to the Poor Things star on the re-release of her album Speak Now. At the Golden Globes last month, Emma joked backstage that Taylor was an “asshole”, before adding: “I’ve known her for almost 20 years and I was very happy she was there. “She was also nominated tonight which was wonderful. And, yes, what an asshole.” While the jibe was obviously intended to be playful, Variety reported that a handful of Swifties may have had a sense of humour failure. “I definitely won’t make a joke like that again,” the Oscar winner told the US outlet, claiming she’d seen several headlines “that really pulled it out of context”. Referring to herself, she added: “What a dope.” Taylor Swift Robert Gauthier via Getty …

The class was conducted entirely aboard a research vessel on the Baltic Sea. Geersen prefers the open-air classroom. “It’s quite intense,” he says, but for some of the students, “it’s maybe the best time during their studies.” During the night shift each evening, students mapped the shape of the seafloor at high resolution. “Usually if we go somewhere and do these measurements,” says Geersen, “then we find something interesting.” This research cruise proved no exception.

Emma Stone embraces method dressing at Baftas with Bella Baxter-inspired look | Fashion

Emma Stone embraces method dressing at Baftas with Bella Baxter-inspired look | Fashion

In Poor Things, the character of Bella Baxter has a very distinctive look: steampunk Victoriana, with a taste for leg-of-mutton sleeves, operatic flounces and saccharine pastel shades. On the Bafta podium to collect her best actress award, Emma Stone came dressed in character, in a salmon-pink gown with one balloon-shaped sleeve, vintage-style buttoning and a floating bubble skirt. Stone’s dress was not the result of a last-minute rummage in the Poor Things costume department, but a custom-made gown that took the Louis Vuitton atelier 450 hours to create, and which her stylist, Petra Flannery, said was intended “to show [Stone’s] affinity with the character and Bella’s spirit”. Method dressing is the new method acting. This is a dramatic reversal of the conventions of the red carpet. For decades, actors have dressed for awards ceremonies not as characters, but as movie stars. Whether nominated for a gritty wartime drama or a sci-fi epic, they chose classic hourglass gowns for the big night, strategically positioning themselves as timeless – and bankable – Hollywood players. skip past newsletter …

The 33-year-old actor features on the front of the March edition of the US music and culture publication. Unveiled last week, the cover shows Stewart in a jockstrap and basketball shorts as she poses in a weightlifting room. While many of the Twilight actor’s fans enjoyed the image, more conservative commentators shared their distaste for the cover. Stewart spoke about the reaction at the Berlin Film Festival on Sunday (18 February) and shared her pride towards the finished product. “The existence of a female body thrusting any type of sexuality at you that’s not designed for exclusively straight males is something people are not super comfy with and so I’m really happy with it,” Stewart said at the festival press conference, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Also at the festival, Stewart said she enjoyed exploring what it means to …
