Filed under: Film FlickersEmma StoneControversy

Emma Stone got into a bit of hot water a couple months ago when audiences realized who she was playing in the movie Aloha.

The caucasian Emma played a character named Allison Ng, who is a quarter Chinese and a quarter Hawaiian.

This led to a ton of criticism for director Cameron Crowe and Emma herself for Hollywood "whitewashing."

Director Cameron Crowe Issues 'Heart-Felt Apology' For Casting Emma Stone In Aloha! Find Out Why HERE!

no title

Beloved director Cameron Crowe's new film Aloha is struggling to stay afloat after harsh waves of negative reviews!

The Bradley Cooper rom-com barely made a splash it's opening weekend, coming in sixth at the box office with only $10 million. (Compared to San Andreas, which made $54 million!)

Critics have been blasting the Almost Famous director for whitewashing a film that takes place in Hawaii — specifically Emma Stone's character Captain Allison Ng, who in the film is one-quarter Hawaiian with a half-Chinese father.

Now, the 57-year-old has issued a "heart-felt apology" to those who didn't agree with the casting choice. He explained that Stone's character was based on a real redhead who was always frustrated that she didn't look the part of her Hawaiian heritage.

Crowe wrote the apology on his blog TheUncool:

"I have heard your words and your disappointment, and I offer you a heart-felt apology to all who felt this was an odd or misguided casting choice. As far back as 2007, Captain Allison Ng was written to be a super-proud 1/4 Hawaiian who was frustrated that, by all outward appearances, she looked nothing like one. A half-Chinese father was meant to show the surprising mix of cultures often prevalent in Hawaii. Extremely proud of her unlikely heritage, she feels personally compelled to over-explain every chance she gets. The character was based on a real-life, red-headed local who did just that."

The director continued to explain that the production employed a ton of locals and casted a bunch of Hawaiian actors — who were supporting characters for white leads Cooper, Stone, and Rachel McAdams.

But it seems as though Crowe learned his lesson. In the future, he plans to tell more stories with racial diversity!

Do YOU think the director's explanation will save Aloha from sinking?

As we told you earlier, WikiLeaks is posting as many of the leaked Sony emails as it can.

And it seems like Cameron Crowe wrote more than one that's going to come back and bite him!

First he called his Aloha star Bradley Cooper an odd bird, then in another exchange with Sony's former co-chairwoman Amy Pascal, Crowe made a joke about Bruce Jenner's gender transition.

The October 2014 comment came after Amy Pascal asked Crowe if he had something to show her regarding a movie he was making at the time, and Crowe responded with:

Execs Talk 'Odd Bird' Bradley Cooper And Costar Emma Stone In More Leaked Sony Emails!

no title

Thought the Sony hacks were over? Wikileaks thinks otherwise! The classified media publishers announced that they archived about 173,000 emails from the movie studio's hacking scandal last year.

So we haven't heard the last of stars being dissed by movie execs.

The first exchange to pop up on the rude radar (rudar?) is between Say Anything director Cameron Crowe and former Sony exec Amy Pascal, who stepped down from her job shortly after several of her not-so-nice emails were leaked.

Sent on March 31, 2014, the emails give a behind-the-scenes look at Crowe's upcoming film Aloha. A little TOO behind.
