This red haired beauty is one of Hollywood’s brightest shining stars at the moment.

Apparently, the aspiring star was ‘so desperate to be movie star she did a PowerPoint called Project Hollywood at 14’.
The precocious starlet was making a pitch to her parents to convince them to move from Arizona to Hollywood.
And it worked. Emma moved to Los Angeles with her mum Krista Jean Stone, and made her TV debut in reality show In Search of the New Partridge Family.
The show’s pilot failed to be snapped up, and Emma went on to do a series of small TV roles – before making her big break.

Proving that there was no stopping her, Emma scored the part of Gwen Stacey in the Spiderman franchise – in which Andrew Garfield played the lead.

The actress then made her Broadway debut in musical Cabaret in 2014 and 2015.
And she has now reunited with former co-star Ryan Gosling in new musical movie La La Land.
Emma will also be playing the villain in new movie Cruella de Vil, a spin-off from Disney’s One Hundred and One Dalmatians.
Who is Emma Stone dating?
Emma started dating her Spider Man co-star Andrew Garfield after meeting on the set of the re-boot.
Their relationship has been at the centre of much media hype, and the couple were reported to have split in October 2015.
The pair keep tight-lipped about their romance, but were pictured together in London’s Covent Garden in August 16 – leading to speculation that they were back together.
Emma counts Hunger Games actress Jennifer Lawrence and country singer Taylor Swift among her close friends.
