Emma Stone Acting career
2004–2008: Early roles
Stone made her television debut as Laurie Partridge on the VH1 talent competition reality show In Search of the New Partridge Family (2004). The resulting show, retitled The New Partridge Family (2004), remained an unsold pilot. She followed this with a guest appearance in Louis C.K.’s HBO series Lucky Louie.
Stone appeared in three films released in 2009. The first of these was opposite Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner and Michael Douglas in Mark Waters’ Ghosts of Girlfriends Past.
2012–2015: Spiderman, Birdman, and Broadway
Stone turned down a role in the action-comedy film 21 Jump Street after signing on to Marc Webb’s 2012 film The Amazing Spider-Man, a reboot of Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man series. She portrayed Gwen Stacy, the love interest of the title character (played by Andrew Garfield).
2016–present: Established actress
During her run in the Cabaret revival, Stone met filmmaker Damien Chazelle, who, impressed with her performance, cast her in his musical comedy-drama La La Land. The project, which marked her third collaboration with Gosling, starred Stone as Mia Dolan, an aspiring actress living in Los Angeles.
Several media publications consider Stone to be among the most talented actresses of her generation. Commenting on her performance in The Help, Kirk Honeycutt of The Hollywood Reporter called her “one of our very best young actresses”.
Stone moved from Los Angeles to Greenwich Village, New York, in 2009. In 2016, she moved back to Los Angeles. Despite significant media attention, she refuses to publicly discuss her personal life. Concerned with living a “normal” life, Stone has said she finds little value in media attention.
During the filming of The Amazing Spider-Man in 2010, Stone began dating her co-star Andrew Garfield. Their relationship was reported in the media with various speculations; the pair refused to speak publicly about it, though they made several appearances together.
