With the premiere of her superhero sequel, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, just weeks away, and plenty of other top-tier projects in the works (including a Woody Allen movie and untitled Cameron Crowe project), Emma Stone would seem to be the antithesis of dull.
However, in her May 2014 cover story for Vogue (on stands on April 29), the bottle-redhead, 25, cops to calling herself a “bland basic bitch.” Why? She discovered the insult after Googling herself, and found it to be rather comical.
“I don’t usually like what I find,” she told Vogue of searching for her own name. “But some of it is really funny.”
After a commenter threw out the “diss” in question, the Arizona-born star quickly latched onto the moniker, calling herself “that bland basic bitch” on a regular basis.
Jokes aside, Stone is clearly anything but bland or basic. Her costar boyfriend Andrew Garfield has remained traditionally private about their three-year romance, but has plenty to say about her abilities as an actress.
“I thank my lucky stars that we’ve been able to be on this ride together,” he wrote to Vogue in an email. “We all need companions in the mystery to get you out of your head and into your heart, to moan to and to take the piss out of it all with.”
As companions go, these two — who will reprise their roles as Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy in the highly-anticipated Marvel sequel — can’t get enough of each other.
“I think I’ve learned a lot by being around him,” Stone said of Garfield. “And, you know, he is an incredibly important person to me. It’s been fun working with him just because of who he is as an actor and person. I think it would be fun no matter what.”
Fans and those who worked on the film have also praised the real-life couple’s onscreen chemistry.
“You can’t fake it,” Spider-Man director Mark Webb told Vogue. “There are so many tiny nonverbal cues that they are issuing each other and picking up on.”
