Emma Stone is covering The Hollywood Reporter’s February issue and looks stunning as usual.
However, the best part of the issue seems to be Emma’s honest interview for the magazine.
Emma is currently enjoying massive success after her role in “La La Land”, but the actress revealed she almost refused the role.
According to Stone, it was Emma Watson and Miles Teller who were set to play the lead roles in La La Land, but Watson was casted for Disney upcoming movie Beauty and The Beast and negotiations with Teller stalled.
That being said, the screenwriter met with Stone to offer her the role at the time she was doing Cabaret.
“I was very sick,” the actress recalled. “My voice was gone, and I was struggling to get through the shows — I was still doing Cabaret — and the idea of doing another musical was like, ‘You’ve got to be out of your mind.’ After Cabaret, I wasn’t sure I would ever sing or dance again.”
However, Emma changed her mind and we’re glad she did, because now La La Land is up for 14 Oscars!
