Emma Stone Wows as Pin Up on Cover of Vanity Fair

Emma stone continues to give us reasons to adore her violently or to stew in our own self hatred and jealousy. Doing the fair-skinned maidens proud on this month’s cover of VF in a red and white striped bikini she says, “I usually wear a one-piece.”

Emma talks of one of her hardest career moments saying:While auditioning for the role of cheerleader Claire Bennet on Heroes, “I could hear that, in the other room, a girl had just gone in and they were saying, ‘You are our pick … On a scale of 1 to 10 you’re an 11,’” That girl was up and comer Hayden Panettiere. “I went home and just had this meltdown,” Stone says, dubbing that experience her “rock bottom.”

On staying thin in Hollywood: “I’m definitely more conscious of it as I’ve gotten older,” and on crazy diets, “It’s like: Eat this diet, which is a palm-size piece of chicken and some beans, and work out two hours a day for the rest of your life.” Emma says that working out “brings out anger in me.”
