Early Life

Emma was born in Scottsdale, Arizona, US. She is the first child of her parents with a brother named Spencer [5]. Her father, Jeffrey Charles Stone, was the owner of a general contracting company while her mother was a homemaker.[1][2]Her The family’s surname was anglicized to Stone when her grandfather, who is of Swedish descent, immigrated to the United States through Ellis Island. [14]

She initially began participating in local theater at a very tender age of four age four;[4] and had her first shot in a stage production of “The Wind in the Willows” she equally took voice lessons for several years. She was once homeschooled, during which she featured in various productions.[3] When she was of age 15, Emma moved with her mother to a Los Angeles apartment in January 2004. [14]

Career & Hustle

Emma started acting at age four. Emma has been in the entertainment business since she was a teenager. [16]Before venturing into Hollywood, Emma began her Career by performing in 16 shows at Valley Youth Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona. Her acting debut was in a stage production of “The Wind in the Willows” when she was eleven. Her film debut came in the 2007 comedy “Superbad”, which she co-starred in with Michael Cera and Jonah Hill. Other early films she was in include 2008 comedy “The Rocker” and romantic comedy “The House Bunny” also in 2008.[3]

Emma is best known for her amusing and fascinating roles in several popular comedies. She starred in the teen hits Superbad (2007), “The House Bunny” (2008) and “Zombieland” (2009), before she got nominated for Golden Globe turn as Olive Penderghast in 2010’s “Easy A”. She also had roles in the critically praised The Help and the romantic comedy “Crazy, Stupid, Love”, both released in 2011, and was cast as Peter Parker’s love interest in The “Amazing Spider-Man” (2012) and its 2014 sequel. Emma was nominated for Oscar Awards as Best Supporting Actress in the dark comedy “Birdman” (2014) and received her first Oscar win for her portrayal of an aspiring actress in “La La Land” (2016).[4]

The Turning Point

Her journey in the acting career can be described as being an impeccable one and the year 2016-2017 proved to be golden years for her. Her career turning point came when she acted as Olive in “Easy A,” which she really had to work for. According to her, she got the script from someone a year before they started auditioning people and from there developed a strong can-do spirit towards the script. She literally became the first to be auditioned for the role [20]

Success Knocks on Emma’s Door

 Emma had her breakthrough in her starring role in a 2010 teen comedy film titled “Easy A.”[3] She received nominations for the BAFTA Rising Star Award, Golden Globe Award for the Best Actress in Musical or Comedy and won the MTV Movie Award for the Best Comedic Performance for her performance as Olive Penderghast.[3]She was also awarded the Choice Movie Actress – Comedy Award for the movie “Crazy, Stupid, Love” (2011) at the 2012 Teen Choice Awards.[3]

3 Lessons We Can Learn from Emma Stone

1: Focus

Remain focused in the face of opposition. It’s ok if not everybody likes you, that doesn’t make it more appealing to convince them of why you are likable. [16] So that was a major lesson, not falling over herself to win over the unwinnable. Emma knows no one is perfect and therefore, will not allow the criticisms to get her distracted and lose focus in her Career. “We’re all just a bunch of people trying to figure out how to get through the day” [16], this she said having an understanding that it is not possible to be all perfect, one will surely have a flaw which makes us all human.

2: Be Independent

Aside from the love for her Career and life, Emma likes to keep working in order to be able to pay her bills [10] She loves to be independent. She could be the reason she started her Career at a very tender age and not minding what anyone else’s opinion deprives her of reaching her goal.

3: Be Confident In Yourself

Lots of people aren’t traditionally beautiful, nor symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect, but none of that matters to them because all that shines through is their confidence, humor, and comfort with themselves. There is no better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself- Confidence is the only key.

5 Success Tips from Emma Stone

1: Respect yourself and others

“I remind myself to be kind to myself and, as slightly ridiculous as it may sound, to treat myself in the same gentle way I’d want to treat a daughter of mine. It really helps.” [11] My great hope for us as young women is to start being kinder to ourselves so that we can be kinder to each other. To stop shaming ourselves and other people for things we don’t know the full story on – whether someone is too fat, too skinny, too short, too tall, too loud, too quiet, too anything. There’s a sense that we’re all ‘too’ something, and we’re all not enough [7] 

2: Friendship is Everything

“I think friendship is pretty much everything”,[17] Emma said after realizing the importance of having good friends around when she was having issues with her family. Her parents were going through a divorce and it is right to presume that Emma found solace in the company of her good friends. This made her realize her friendships were so incredibly important.

3: Equal Love for yourself and your Career

That balance of love for your work and love in your life is an interesting thing” [7]. She once said, “I think the number one thing that I find important is the importance of honesty with your friends and your parents, if you can be. But I think that telling people how you really feel, being who you truly are, being safe and taking care of yourself is the most important thing”.

4: Find Fun in What You do

“Comedy was my sport, my first love, It taught me how to roll with the punches” [10]. Often, joking for Emma is a way of diffusing the awkwardness of a situation, so it’s kind of exhilarating for her to be a part of projects where there’s nothing funny or lighthearted. I believe the love for what one does is self-motivating which invariably leads to fulfillment. Emma enjoys featuring in plays that makes her laugh rather than the one that makes her cry.

5: Just keep going; Don’t give up

Don’t give up when you encounter obstacles. “If you’re going through hell, keep going,” Emma said, “Just keep going.” From Emma’s story, she had to learn to cope with anxiety, extreme shyness and even a phobia.[19] Emma knows she has more progress to make, and she won’t allow any phase to stop her from forging ahead.

Your Take-Away for Today

I believe one of the greatest takeaways that we can learn from her story is to have a life vision of who you want to be without minding the present situation you find yourself in. Emma had an idea of who she wanted to be, which was stated clearly in paper and ink.

A good plan to help navigate the vision is equally important. A good plan must be put into place else one gets distracted from the main life goal and loses focus, which invariably will end into allowing failure.
