Three days after the 17 year old Jacob Staudenmaier video, in which he invited
Emma Stone to prom in a La La Land-themes proposal went viral, Emma Stone
has responded to his message!
Unfortunately, the La La Land actress had to decline the request, but made sure
to let him know how honored and grateful she felt he thought of her. Having no
social media account, Emma gave him the message via ABC’s Good Morning
America this Friday.
Staudenmaier told that he’s still going to prom despite being turned down by
Emma. He also revealed that his viral video was inspired by a fellow student of
his school, who asked Miley Cyrus to prom back in 20113.
Miley also couldn’t attend, but made sure to invite the fan on her Bangerz Tour
and brought him on stage for a dance.

You can read Emma’s full message and see the prom proposal video below:
“Jacob, thanks for making the greatest proposal I have ever received. I can’t tell
you what an honor that was and how much I smiled through that entire
beautifully orchestrated video. I’m in London working, but I hope you have the
best time at prom, and I’m grateful you thought of me. Thank you. P.S. I do see
Gosling around the eyes. Love, Emma.”
