What Makes Emma Stone So Great?
I think most of us who go to the movies as much as we do are familiar with Emma Stone. Her role in the box office smash hit, Wedding Crashers is one that will always be remembered. However, her all time favorite character was Cinderella, and she was even in the last Cinderella movie.
If you are unfamiliar with the story, Cinderella is a poor orphan who leaves her wealthy but boring life in order to work for a local butcher in the right place at the right time. When it comes to movies, she is the most beloved hero ever created. But I will confess that one of my favorite movies is called The Secret Life of Pets, starring Stone as Oscar. Even though they have some of the same characters, I think that Emma Stone’s character is more likable.
Emma Stone also starred in a number of TV shows like House M.D., ABC’s Castle, Last Resort, House of Lies, Blindspot, Once Upon a Time, Law & Order, The New Girl, White Collar, The Mindy Project, and Entourage. Just the facts that she has appeared in so many TV shows doesn’t even begin to describe how much she has done.
What could Emma Stone possibly do? How much could she bring to a role that was given to her? To me, she has played all roles the audience has been waiting for her to play. She has a way of turning the smallest or most trivial events into dramatic ones, but she doesn’t take herself too seriously.

Does this mean that she can play every part? Not at all. Instead, she has the ability to play almost any role that the director wants to see her play, and even if she can’t play them perfectly, there is a certain honesty about her that makes her seem believable.
That’s another thing about Emma Stone. When you watch her movies, you don’t think of her as an actress, you think of her as the star. She has the ability to captivate audiences with her ability to put faces to things that most people would rather just believe is just a person in a hat.
Here’s an example of this in a movie that she did recently. American Hustle was the story of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. It was basically a prequel to the Lewinsky affair. Emma Stone plays Sidney Poitier’s character, Beth, the wife of CIA agent Don, played by Christian Bale.
To begin with, the movie started out with the topic that both women have to deal with. Beth was asked to testify at a court-martial and Christian Bale was the male character who stood in for the character he was portraying, and the focus of the movie was to put an end to this all-too-familiar story.

During the scene where Beth was asked to testify, she basically had a hard time going through her statement. She didn’t want to go on camera. And when she finally got to say what she needed to say, she sounded nervous and her voice cracked.
However, if it wasn’t for the actor, Emma Stone, we would have probably never known the truth. As she said, “God forbid someone is willing to look the other way when they know everything is going to be okay.”
In conclusion, Emma Stone is one of the most talented actresses out there. She is able to make anyone she plays look better than they really are. She’s been a major presence in Hollywood for years, and she continues to amaze audiences with each new role.
