Emma Stone gets hot for other gingers, she has a crush on Christina Hendricks


One of our favorite gingers (after Michael Fassbender, Prince Harry, etc) is Emma Stone, and she’s got a great new interview in the new issue of The Advocate. Apparently, she has a big gay following, something about her being a tomboy and kissing cute boys that the gays want to claim. Oh, and she’s also done pro-gay movies written by gay writers. So, Emma is loved by the readers of The Advocate and she loves them right back. You can read the full piece here – some excerpts are below. My favorite parts are when she talks about how hot Ryan Gosling is and how her imaginary girlfriend is Christina Hendricks (ZOMG, ginger-on-ginger lesbian hotness!):

When did you become aware of your gay following?
When The House Bunny came out, and it was incredibly exciting. That support is profoundly important and moving to me, because you guys are the best. I grew up with a ton of gay friends and witnessed their struggles. One of the most wonderful things about doing Easy A was that we got to tackle issues that many gay teenagers face.

Did you anticipate the extent to which Easy A would resonate with the gay audience?
Our writer, Bert V. Royal, is gay, and these were issues that he had actually experienced growing up, so we knew that would resonate. But when the movie came out last summer, media coverage of gay teen suicides was everywhere. Because the movie came out right in the eye of that storm, the timing ended up being more relevant and poignant than we anticipated.

Who’s the most important gay person in your life?
I did a lot of theater growing up, and I was lucky to be raised in a family that was very accepting, so someone being gay was never odd or off-putting to me. I have a lot of wonderful gay friends, but one of the most formative men in my life is Max, who’s been my best friend since I was 11 years old. He’s the funniest human being on the planet, and he single-handedly taught me how to do improv. He also taught me what friendship is and what it is to truly know someone. Now we both live in New York, so we’ve been able to stay close for our whole lives.

Your character in The Help, “Skeeter,” is a young journalist who exposes the injustices suffered by black housemaids in 1960s Mississippi. Do you also strive to use your creative power to speak out on socio-political issues?
I’m the least eloquent person on the planet, so I don’t know that I’d be the right person to speak out on anything. But that’s what’s so wonderful about good movies and writers: I can be a part of a project that says what I wish I could say. My ultimate goal is to continue doing movies with some sort of message that can make a change, like Easy A or The Help. Because that’s what good movies do for me: They teach me and bring injustices to my attention.

In the Crazy, Stupid, Love. trailer, your character admires Ryan Gosling’s shirtless torso and says, “It’s like you’re photoshopped!” Since you got closer to all that than most of us ever will, what else can you share?
Well, I got to touch it too, so I can confirm that he isn’t photoshopped at all. He put in all the hard work, and it will not disappoint you.

Instead of boy-crazy girly girls, you often play these strong, independent women with an edgy tomboy quality, which has certainly endeared you to lesbian fans.
Really? Oh, I’m so flattered. The tomboy quality is probably coincidental just due to the fact that my voice hits male octaves most of the time. I don’t really think about it — I just respond to what I read — but I must be subconsciously drawn to women who, even if they don’t necessarily have their shit together, are secure within themselves and don’t need a man to fix them.

Are you a tomboy or a girly girl in real life?
It depends on the day. I’m a solid party mix of both.

A lesbian role seems like a logical next step for you.
Right? Send me over a good script. That sounds amazing.

Which gay star would you play in a biopic?
Can I play a man? Anthony Perkins would be interesting, because it was kind of a secret thing.

When you guested on Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler asked if you had a girlfriend when you evaded her question about having a boyfriend. You responded sarcastically, but I got excited for a second.
No, I don’t have a girlfriend. But who knows? You love who you love.

Do you have a girl crush?
Christina Hendricks. It’s a no-brainer. Everything about her does it for me. That’s my kind of woman.

Like her, you’re a natural blonde who’s found fame as a redhead. Were you surprised by the brouhaha on the blogosphere when you went back to blonde to play Gwen Stacy in next year’s The Amazing Spider-Man?
It was so funny. To me, hair is hair — you dye it, cut it, whatever — so all that attention was wild.

It gets confusing for a guy who might want to dress as you for Halloween.
Damn it. OK, always stick with red — that’s my advice to a drag Emma Stone. I may be a blonde at roots, but I’m a redhead at heart.

[From The Advocate]

I love her. So, so much. “I may be a blonde at roots, but I’m a redhead at heart.” Sassy little thing. Now, who else is having a little ginger sex fantasy starring Emma, Christina and Michael Fassbender? OMG. Hot gingers, mixing it up. Jesus, that’s a good fantasy. Now throw in Prince Harry. Good lord.

    I thought she was a natural redhead…or was she being sarcastic?

  2. OriginalGracie says:

    Me too! Except I am a brunette at roots but very definately a redhead in my heart of hearts!

  3. Ari says:

    originalgracie – me too! im a brunette but am a full-time redhead and so much so that if i dye my hair pitch as night black living in florida it eventually turns back to red after a few weeks its bizarre lol

    OH and I love emma

  4. Praise St. Angie! says:

    “you love who you love”…

    and I LOVE this girl! she doesn’t say stupid things, she sounds grateful for what she’s got, she doesn’t sound like she’s dropping the “I have gay friends” line to be cool…she just sounds so natural.

    Lohan…this could have been you, you dumb skank, if you had just cleaned up your act a bit.

  5. Chloe says:

    Love Emma


    edit: “I’m the least eloquent person on the planet, so I don’t know that I’d be the right person to speak out on anything.”

    Oh sweet pie! Just by formulating this sentence you’ve positioned yourself far above hundreds of starlets and *actresses* who seem to give an interview daily while having virtually nothing to say.

    Seriously, LOVE Emma.

  6. OriginalGracie says:

    @Ari: Wow, that is amazing! 🙂 It’s like your hair knows what it wants and makes it happen! I love that.

    I think red hair is gorgeous. It’s funny too because my skin tone just warms up with red hair like I should have been born that way.

    I guess that’s why they invented hair dye…thank god!

  7. Jackson says:

    Her hair color and makeup look fabulous in the top pic. Just perfect.

  8. cara says:

    I like Emma, she’s smart and talented and warm in personality. But there’s a bit of a politician in her too, where she says all the right things that make the reader think, “see? she’s just like us!” I mean, can you get any more politically correct than crushing on the curvy christina while mocking the tracey anderson diet? Nothing’s wrong with being a bit political mind you, but this girl says all the right things at all the right times and it’s a bit prepped if you ask me.

  9. Mae says:

    Yay! I’m happy about all the redhead love going around, I used to get made fun of for my ginger tresses. I love Emma Stone!

  10. normades says:

    What an awesome interview. She’s smart yet unpretentious. She is def my fave young starlet 🙂

  11. Melissa says:

    Christina Hendricks is totally walking sex. Emma Stone is the best. Her character in Easy A reminds me so much of my best friend’s personality. ES has a long career ahead of her, I can feel it. I was a redheaded baby, but now I’m a brunette. But my baby experience might explain why I have such an affection for gingers. 🙂

  12. OriginalGracie says:

    @Mae: How horrible! I do not understand the prejudice against ginger hair. I just don’t get it.

    I LOVE red hair so much. It’s the most wonderful color and I don’t know why it would be seen as any different than blonde or black or brown hair.

    Redheads, natural or dyed, rule!! So please know what some of us envy you and wish that we too had natural ginger hair.

  13. imho says:

    This girl got so so many look-alikes looking like just another random celeb… i.e Lindsay Lohan, Amanda Seyfried, Hilary Burton (fr. One Tree Hill), Dyan Cannon (when she was younger)…

  14. skilo says:

    I really like Emma she seems to have a great personality and a good head on her shoulders. I hope she keeps both and has a super long and successful career.

  15. girl x says:

    I love gingers! I have about a dozen guy friends who are ginges(which is A LOT in this little po dunk town I live in), and I call them all hot ginges. My friend says gingers have no soul, but they steal my soul every time I see them.. Damn sexy ginges..

  16. ElleGin says:

    See, you don’t have to look grumpy to be a fresh breath of air, *ahem*.

    She is lovely and I hope she stays this lovely!

  17. Victoria says:

    Ahem..correcccction. Hendricks is a natural Blonde. still it would be haute on haute.. yessir! giddy up..

  18. almond says:

    I’m not convinced of her naturalness and modesty. As she has a publicist she also has a specific image she must present. So I’ll take her whole schtick with a grain of salt. She’s still fairly new to the high-profile-fame thing.

  19. Jana says:

    Sigh. Every young celeb/singer nowadays has to allude to the fact they would be with a girl or are bisexual. It’s the cool thing to say. There’s nothing wrong with it. I’m all for equal rights, marriage, etc. My bestfriend is a gorgeous bisexual, but a true bisexual, not a cool-thing-to-say-these-days bisexual or just an experiment to be cool when young. I would love one of these girls to say one day, like Sharon Stone did, when her relationship didn’t work she thought it might be easier just to be with a woman, but she stated she loves that schwang between their legs too much. Just say I’m for equal rights, I appreciate a beautiful woman, but men are my thing — somebody. You can’t all be bi in Hollywood. BTW, I do believe Anna Pacquin is and not for the coolness it factor.

  20. Maritza says:

    Oh yeah, she looks so much better as a redhead.

  21. Alarmjaguar says:

    That interview just made me love her more – and I didn’t think that was possible. Awesome shout out for the writers. Actors usually forget that they are pretty much just vehicles and interpreters. But, she sounds pretty damn eloquent to me. Yay Emma!

    Sigh. Every young celeb/singer nowadays has to allude to the fact they would be with a girl or are bisexual. It’s the cool thing to say.

    I got the feeling that she just said *you love who you love*
    as a spontanius reaction to the queastion.
    I dont know much about her but she doesnt seem like “that” kind of girl/woman who says things just for attention.
    But thats just what i got out of it.

    ITA with the *cool thing to say*

    And its sad that so many gays/bisexuals hide their sexuality in fear of not getting jobs if they come out.

    It seem to be ok for young actresses to say “im bi” but if you actually are a LBGT person you have to hide it (not everyone but i think theres a lot of that going on).

  23. SillyOne says:

    I thought she was a natural blonde??? I swear that was that last thing I read here on CB.

  24. Chris says:

    I see Crazy, Stupid Love has a hell of a cast.

    I also noticed Ryan Gosling has another two films lined up with Nicolas Winding Refn. I love them both, so I’m happy. I reckon they could make a great collaborative team for years to come as they both have great taste when it comes to selecting projects. I’m on a bit of Gosling high at the moment because I finally got to see Blue Valentine the other night and I thought he was awesome. While I was checking out all things Blue Valentine I came across a great youtube clip that a fan put together:

    I see Crazy, Stupid Love has a hell of a cast.

    Ooh Julianne Moore, im not that into Gosling but if Julianne and the Bacon is in it, im def seing it.

  26. I Choose Me says:

    I can’t decide who I love more, her or Mila. Met a red-headed guy once, last named Kreider(sp?). I told him I thought his red hair was divine (it was like burnished copper) and he blushed adorably. Love, love, red hair.

  27. luls says:

    She looks so much more unique and interesting as a ginger. As a blonde, she just blends in…..

    And I agree with the commentors who think her shtick is all just good PR. Im sorry but she sounds VERY rehearsed to me.

  28. Mitch Buchanan Rocks says:

    Emma Stone looks like a mix of Michelle Willams and Nicole Kidman.

  29. mags says:

    i just watched Easy A last night, so so so good!

  30. Jackie says:

    I have a crush on her and it’s not because of the red hair or whatever color she decides to have. It’s her confidence and personality. So glad she’s LGBT friendly. We usually get stomped on so it’s nice to have someone in the public eye not afraid to show support. Courage is hard to come by these days. Go Emma!!! (-:
