W MAGAZINE – 2017 is the year of using your voice and standing up for what you believe in. Watch stars including Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Jake Gyllenhaal, Timothée Chalamet, and Margot Robbie vow not to be silent.
The first trailer for Emma’s upcoming film Battle of the Sexes has been released. Watch it below! I’ve also updated the gallery with the poster for the film along with some new production stills!
The electrifying 1973 tennis match between World number one Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as THE BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time. The match caught the zeitgeist and sparked a global conversation on gender equality, spurring on the feminist movement. Trapped in the media glare, King and Riggs were on opposite sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. With a supportive husband urging her to fight the Establishment for equal pay, the fiercely private King was also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, while Riggs gambled his legacy and reputation in a bid to relive the glories of his past. Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis courts and animated the discussions between men and women in bedrooms and boardrooms around the world.

OSCARS – La La Land discussion with writer/director Damien Chazelle, composer Justin Hurwitz, editor Tom Cross, and actors Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling on December 10, 2016 at the Samuel Goldwyn Theater.
W MAGAZINE – With her role in La La Land, Damien Chazelle’s modern take on the classic musical, Emma Stone emerged as a true Hollywood triple-threat: not only can she act, she can also sing and dance. Here, Stone, who is one of the stars of W’s February 2017 issue, opens up about her favorite musicals of all time, what it was like to sing on camera, and more.
Lynn Hirschberg: How did you get the part in La La Land? Emma Stone: Well, Damien [Chazelle, the director] came to see me when I was doing Cabaret, and he saw me on a night that I was on a lot of cold medicine, which was a lot of nights because I was sick a lot during the run. And, I didn’t know that he had come with the composer, Justin Hurwitz. After the fact I heard he had seen it and I was really upset, because I was like I don’t think I was even in my body for that entire show. I think that was my unofficial audition for La La Land, without knowing it.
Which was your favorite number to perform in La La Land?
I did love doing the audition, although that kind of thing, when it’s just you and it’s one shot, is a little tricky, and maintaining my voice is a feat for me. So I loved doing the duet number on the hill with Ryan [Gosling], where I’m in the yellow dress and he’s in the suit and that was also one shot and we had just practiced for so long, I mean for months and months, so to finally do it on that day was really exciting.
Do you now dance differently at parties?
No, I pretty much always dance like that at parties I think.
You put on the shoes and then you start doing tap dancing.
I say I was born knowing how to do a time-step. I wasn’t, but I learned it when I was little, just a kind of simple time step, and that’s actually something that I can remember doing on sets since I started working. It kind of wakes me up to do a little time step, but that was the only tap that I knew.
