Emma Stone Responds To That High Schooler’s Elaborate La La Land-Themed Prom Proposal!

The dream doesn’t always work out like you plan.

That’s what Jacob Staudenmaier learned after his elaborate, La La Land-inspired promposal to Emma Stone ended with a sweet (but definitive) rejection.

Sure, it was a long shot to begin with. The Arizona high school orchestrated an adorable musical prom invitation filmed in front of his high school to the tune of the film’s opening number Another Day of Sun.

Lo and behold, the promposal went viral and actually reached the Oscar winning actress — who regretfully declined the invitation due to other movie star obligations.

Speaking on Friday’s Good Morning America, Jacob read a message from the 28-year-old actress, in which she wrote:

“Jacob, thanks for making the greatest proposal I have ever received. I can’t tell you what an honor that was and how much I smiled through that entire beautifully orchestrated video. I’m in London working, but I hope you have the best time at prom, and I’m grateful you thought of me. Thank you. P.S. I do see Gosling around the eyes. Love, Emma.”

Well, that’s the best “no” a high schooler can ask for!

The note of Ryan Gosling is in reference to Jacob mentioning his “far-fetched” resemblance to the actor in the video. Now that Emma confirmed it, we have a feeling Jacob won’t be too lonely on his prom night after all!
