Emma Stone: I 'Never Felt Dorky' as a Kid

It’s hard to imagine Emma Stone as anyone but the funny, fresh-faced star of films like Easy A, Superbad and the upcoming The Help. But the MTV Movie Award winner tells ELLE that she did indeed have an awkward phase. “I sucked my thumb until I was 11, so I had this expander in,” she says, adding that she wore glasses and braces, too. “I never felt, like, dorky. I was just like, ‘Yup, these are my braces. I’ve had them forever.’ I was a good-looking kid.” Now, she’s one of Hollywood’s most recognizable redheads, though when she went blonde in December, she was able to fly under the radar a bit. “I mean, I haven’t been around very long,” she says, adding jokingly, “I can’t expect everyone to have seen The House Bunny.” Stone, who dyed her hair for her role as Gwen Stacy in 2012′s The Amazing Spider-Man, says she prefers transforming for films. “It drives me crazy when you see women in movies playing teachers, and they have biceps. It totally takes me out of the movie,” she explains. “I start thinking, ‘Wow, that actress playing this part really looks great!’ I like to look like a person.” Hear more from Stone in the July issue of ELLE, on stands June 21.

I’d say she had a specific person in mind when she said this, I know I do.
