For the past 3 years we’ve been looking for an excuse to feature Emma Stone as our Babe of the month. I mean for some of us here at POPCulture Online, she is the dream girl! Well I’m sure she’s every man’s dream girl. Opportunity arises this month with The Amazing Spider-Man being our cover story and very appropriately Emma Stone makes it as our Babe of the month!
Emma Stone was born in Scottsdale, Arizona to Jeff Stone, a founder and CEO of a general-contracting company, and Krista (née Yeager), a homemaker. Her parents are co-owners of the Camelback Golf Club, and Stone lived on the grounds of the Camelback Inn resort from the age of twelve. She has a brother Spencer, who is two years younger. Stone’s paternal grandfather, Conrad Ostberg Stone, was of Swedish descent, and his family’s original surname “Sten” was anglicized to “Stone” when immigrating to the U.S. through Ellis Island. Her other ancestry is Pennsylvania Dutch (German), English, Scottish, and Irish
Did you know
There was already a listing for an “Emily Stone” when Stone registered for the Screen Actors Guild, so she chose “Emma” as her stage name. Her family and friends call her Emily. She first chose “Riley Stone” as her stage name, but after guest-starring on Malcolm in the Middle, she decided that she was more comfortable with “Emma”, a nickname that her mother had given her.
There’s something about her voice
Stone’s low-pitched husky voice is a result of having baby colic, a condition of frequent screaming as an infant, resulting in the development of nodules. She has calluses on her vocal cords as an adult.
Stone is one of the faces for Revlon, and models alongside well-known actresses such as Olivia Wilde and Halle Berry.
