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.
