Emma Stone may be one of the hottest young stars in Hollywood today, but it’s not always her acting performances that get people talking. The 23-year-old’s hair color is apparently quite the discussion topic, and the Oscar winning director Cameron Crowe got to the bottom of it in his in depth profile in the latest Interview Magazine.
“I had to dye it red for Superbad,” says the natural blonde. “They didn’t let me go back to blonde until Spider-Man—the collective ‘they.’” She dyed her hair brown at 15, which is how she looked when cast in the 2007 smash. “Judd [Apatow] asked me to dye it red at the camera test, so I was already cast in the movie…Now I’m back to my roots. But I get a lot of questions about hair color. People are very into talking about hair.”
But hair wasn’t all she talked about with Cameron. There were much more important things on the docket. Like Ryan Gosling, for example! Emma stars along side the heartthrob in Gangster Squad, whom she also worked/slept with in last summer’s Crazy Stupid Love. Apparently the relationship continues off screen (minus the sleeping, obvs). According to Emma, the two felt close from the get-go. “I immediately felt a kinship with him.” She even asks for his help on new film projects. “I’ve asked him to read a couple of scripts. I just really like hearing his viewpoint because I know that it’s never going to be tainted. He’s very much his own person. I really like his brain.”
