Emma Stone Says Giving Up 'Cabaret' Role to Michelle Williams Was 'Painful'

Emma Stone Says Giving Up 'Cabaret' Role to Michelle Williams Was 'Painful'

Emma Stone and her boyfriend Andrew Garfield step out together in the morning on Monday (October 27) in New York City.

The 25-year-old actress was spotted earlier over the weekend running some errands in Los Angeles wearing a cute navy dress.

“It was painful,” Emma recently told the New York Times about having to give up the role of Sally Bowles in Broadway’s Cabaret back when the show was first getting cast on Broadway last year. “There was one day on the schedule where I would land from Tokyo in the morning and have enough time to make it to perform in that afternoon’s matinee. It felt like forcing something that wouldn’t fit. But I was telling myself I can do this, and everyone wanted to make it work, and it’s hard to say no when people are being so accommodating. But part of me also thought, ‘It’s going to kill me.’”

The role was given to Michelle Williams when Emma had to drop out – but luckily, Emma is now taking over the role of Sally Bowles on November 11 for several months.

FYI: Andrew is wearing Levi’s jeans. Emma is wearing Melinda Maria earrings in NYC.

    SO tired of this showmace. They’re going to “break up” and then maybe they’ll get back together if the next Spiderman film ever gets made.

    Just as painful as losing that cheer leader role to Hayden Panettiere I guess?
    Stop throwing people under the bus with the pity routine.

    I love Emma, but I personally think that Michelle Williams is a far superior actress. I think all this attention on Emma recently, especially articles that continuously point out that Michelle was the second choice, are tacky. Like, we get it. Emma got the role first.

  • I don’t have a name

    I find this sort of talk unecessary and kind of tacky to be honest. I don’t think anyone missed the fact that Emma was meant to do cabaret first and i’m suprised she is even talking about it to this extent.

  • FerCat

    I think this is just thinly veiled sourgraping. She should have stopped with her previous humble comments. Which now appear to be merely pretentious.

    I’m sorry Emma, but Michelle is better actress. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPlpVUxYFgo
