Emma Stone Tells 'Fallon' She Changed Her Name to 'Emma' Because of Baby Spice - Watch Here!

Emma Stone made an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (November 8) and talked all about her love for the Spice Girls – particularly her interest in Baby Spice, a.k.a. Emma Bunton!

“I was super blonde, and my real name is Emily, but I wanted to be called Emma because of Baby Spice and guess what, now I am,” the 30-year-old Oscar-winning actress shared. “So, that’s pretty messed up.”

“It wasn’t necessarily because of her, but yes, in second grade, did I go up to the teacher and ask her to call me Emma, yes I did. And was it because of Emma Lee Bunton from the Spice Girls? Yes it was,” Emma admitted.

Emma said she can’t wait to see the Spice Girls during their 2019 UK reunion tour: “I saw them in concert in the ’90s. I saw them at O2 Arena in 2008, and they recently announced a new tour and I will be going to that somehow. I don’t think tickets are on sale yet, but I’m gonna figure it out.”

Emma also talked about turning 30, her brand new film The Favourite and the challenges of being the only actor with an American accent on set – Watch more after the cut!
