Many of us fell in love with Emma Stone several years ago when she began to pop up all over the place, turning in impressive performances in film after film. Emma’s breakthrough in Hollywood was as a redhead with what seemed to be a completely healthy and attainable “look”. She looked like she ate solid foods and she just seemed like the kind of girl who would down for nachos and beer. That’s how she existed in the cultural zeitgeist for a while because I think many of us didn’t want to acknowledge the change Emma made soon after. Suddenly, she seemed to remake herself into a super-slender blonde, always whipping around in skinny jeans and the latest haute couture. The bubbly redhead who stood apart from the crowd became just another cookie cutter, skinny Hollywood blonde. It was disappointing.
But is Andrew Garfield disappointed too? Andrew and Emma have been together for… what? Like two years or something. She was already beginning this changeover when they started up, but it’s gotten worse since she’s been with him. So does Andrew approve? Well, Star says he doesn’t.
While promoting Gangster Squad, Emma Stone has looked shockingly gaunt – and boyfriend Andrew Garfield, 29, is worried.
“Andrew is freaked out,” says a source. “He thinks that if she drops any more weight she’ll be skeletal.”
Body expert Alicia Hunter agrees: “Emma appears to have gone from about 116 lbs. to roughly 105 – dangerous for a 5’6” woman like her.”
Emma, 24, has acknowledged that she’s size-obsessed: “You won’t hear me saying I have no body issues… I do have that thing of, ‘Oh my God, I’m disgusting… I feel so fat.’”

Ugh. I wish… I wish… I wish that Emma would go back to red and put on 10 pounds and stop trying to look like literally 80% of the girls in Hollywood. But I also hope that Andrew is figuring out a way to walk the fine line between accepting his girlfriend for whatever choices she makes and encouraging her to make healthy decisions. Because she’s not fat and she never was.
