In a recent cross-interview with Nathan Fielder, to whom she stars in the series The Curse, Emma Stone, whose role she considers most difficult is neither that of Poor Creatures nor that of La La Land, says she would like to be called by her real first name more often. Because yes, Emma Stone is not called Emma Stone!

“Before continuing this interview, I would like to say something”says Nathan Fielder at the microphone of the Hollywood Reporter. “Emma’s real name is Emily, but in the movie business she goes by Emma. When people don’t know her, I end up saying Emma, ​​but from now on I’m going to say Emily.”
