Now this is interesting with a capital I!!!
Cameron Crowe, who wrote and directed Almost Famous, engaged in one of the most thoughtful, interesting, and descriptive interviews we've seen in a long time in Interview Magazine PLUS, the interviewee was the captivating, memorizing…
… Emma Stone!!!
Now, we all know Stone from her tremendous work in The Amazing Spiderman, and so we thought we'd cut to the chase and get right down to the comic book nerd stuffing part of these two's chat.
Here's how that exchange went down. WARNING: SPOILER ALERT! Emma dishes out some deets on the possible fate of her character in the movies. Don't read on unless you want to know. You have been warned:
"CROWE: Gwen Stacy or Mary Jane Watson?
STONE: I mean, Gwen, because I'm biased. But I love Mary Jane.
CROWE: When you were out promoting The Amazing Spider-Man, did you get a lot of serious Gwen-o-philes bending your ear?
STONE: Yeah, but not so much in terms of how I played her. It was more about whether or not the films are going to stay true to her story—which I'm hoping they are. Do you know the Gwen story? Do you know what happens?
CROWE: It's like the Kennedy assassination or something.
STONE: Yeah. Essentially the argument is that Spider-Man kills her by accident. So the person she loves is the person who kills her, which is the most horrifying thing. Apparently people unsubscribed to the comic book when that happened because they were just so flipped-out over it. But, of course, I want to stay true to that. That's the question you get the most when you're part of that saga.
CROWE: "Are you going to die?" is the question that you get the most?
STONE: Yeah, and, "If so, will it be in the same way that she died in the comics?"
CROWE: Which is a broken neck, right?
STONE: Yeah. She snaps her neck because Spider-Man shoots a web out to save her, so in trying to save the person he loves, he kills her . . . That's life for you, man. [laughs]"
We guess Stone laughs in the face of danger.
No, but seriously it's one thing to be amazingly talented and gifted, but the girl seems down-to-earth as well - plus it is easy to tell she is a comic book fan.
Now that's a rare combination!
We totally get why she makes Andrew Garfields spidey senses tingle!
