It’s probably no surprise that Emma Stone looks like a beautiful porcelain-skinned angel on the covers of both Vogue and New York Magazine this week. The woman is a living, breathing Precious Moments doll. Except hot. What is a surprise, however, is how gracious the actress has been about that bizarro Jim Carrey fan video he made in her honor last summer. You know, the one where Jim Carrey fantasizes about making fat, freckly babies with a famous actress who is literally younger than his daughter? Somehow…Emma still thinks of him fondly?
“Right before that video came out, we were at the MTV Movie Awards. Jason Sudeikis hosted,” Stone tells New York Mag. “There was like five of us, and we just went on this tangent of talking nice behind Jim Carrey’s back. Jason was talking about how great [Carrey] was when he went to Saturday Night Live and how he was just like a comedic genius. Everyone was kind of weighing in, like ‘He’s the best. He’s amazing.’ And so when that happened, we all kind of talked to each other like, ‘Weird, that was the guy we were lauding for, like, 30 minutes.’” Hmmm, weird, haunting, upsetting, deeply inappropriate…give us a second to get on Thesaurus.com and we could go on for hours!
But while the rest of us normals wept over never being able to truly enjoy Liar/Liar again, Emma is a much more advanced human being, gushing to her interviewer about the joy that came with praising Carrey. “Have you ever done that?” she asks, looking at me earnestly. “Just all sat around a table saying nice things about one person? It was the greatest thing. You walk away, and you were just like, That felt so good, to talk about how wonderful someone is.” Oh, great, so Emma Stone is nice, too? Nice and funny and successful and carved out of flawless ivory? We’d rag on her, but you know she’d only say something darling about us. Her sweetness is like some kind of force field! Our cynicism is powerless against it!
