Emma Stone Speaks to Her Potential Oscar Nomination for 'La La Land'
Here’s what the 28-year-old actress had to share:
On La La Land‘s buzz: “I feel like I started promoting the movie back in August and it hasn’t stopped since.”
On her potential Oscar nomination: “I’m trying not to think about that. I just focus on what I’ve got to do at any one moment, and don’t necessarily think about where it’s all leading.”
On experiences she’s had making movies: “There are times in the past, making a movie, when I’ve been told that I’m hindering the process by bringing up an opinion or an idea. I hesitate to make it about being a woman, but there have been times when I’ve improvised, they’ve laughed at my joke and then given it to my male co-star. Given my joke away. Or it’s been me saying, ‘I really don’t think this line is gonna work,’ and being told, ‘Just say it, just say it, if it doesn’t work we’ll cut it out’ – and they didn’t cut it out, and it really didn’t work!’”
