A few weeks ago, WikiLeaks exposed Emma Stone's cellphone number and email address, which unfortunately resulted in the actress making an irreversible mistake!

The Aloha star revealed that after her personal information was leaked, her quick response ended up being more damaging than precautionary. She said:
"I did one of the worst things ever, which was react really quickly. I was getting all these emails and texts from people I didn't know — ‘Hi, I'm Joe from the U.K. I like your movies' — and I was so overwhelmed that I went to my inbox and I deleted all my emails."
The 26-year-old, who starred in nine Sony films over her career, acted impulsively in an act that couldn't be undone. She continued:
"In about a 30-second span, I hit ‘Select All' and ‘Delete Forever,' and thousands of emails, like six years of emails, are now gone forever. I was just so freaked out that someone was in there."
The Oscar nominee admitted that she received about five emails and five texts from strangers. Though she regrets deleting her emails permanently, as some held great sentimental value:
"It was horrible. I cried for like an hour. Most of the emails I'm mourning I can still talk to the person and get them back. But there's others where the person is actually gone. It really sucks."
We feel for you, Emma! Hopefully, this encourages others to act more gingerly when deleting personal messages!
