Saturday Night Magazine: Originally from Arizona, Stone caught the acting bug early on. “I just always wanted to act from birth,” she recalls and pretty much did just that through a children’s theater program where Stone participated in 16 plays and was even able to join an improv troop. The experience proved to be particularly beneficial for the budding comic actress who soon realized that making people laugh was something she wanted to pursue as a career. “I think I was drawn to comedy originally because when I was really young, by the time I was eight I had seen movies like The Jerk, Animal House, and Planes, Trains & Automobiles with my dad, and I knew them by heart,” says Stone. “I loved them and my dad loved them, and we would laugh together, and I would think, ‘This is love.’ I just wanted to make people feel like that.” (Emma Stone: Coolest Chick We Know).
