Emma Stone has proven once again that she's one of the best chat show guests in Hollywood

How is she consistently so entertaining?

THERE ARE A couple of celebrities out there who never fail to make us laugh when they drop by the BBC Studios for a chat with Graham Norton or when they’re hanging out in Hollywood with Jimmy Kimmel. 

Emma Stone is definitely one of them. This woman has been dragged on press tours across the world every couple of months for the last ten years, and still she does not seem to be sick of it at all. It’s very rare that you see Emma Stone giving less than 110% in an interview. 

Remember that time she was on Graham Norton and he tricked her into thinking the Spice Girls were hiding back stage waiting for her? Her excitement and anticipation were palpable.

As was her disappointment when it turned out Graham was lying. But it made for brilliant TV.  Last night, Emma Stone appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and she brought her energy and passion for the Spice Girls with her. Jimmy decided to let Emma take a Buzzfeed quiz to find out which Spice Girl she was, in the hopes that she could further identify with her favourite Spice Girl – Baby Spice. 

Growing up, I was super blonde and my real name is Emily but I wanted to be called Emma because of Baby Spice and guess what? Now I am. So, that’s like pretty messed up. It wasn’t necessarily because of her… But in second grade did I go up to the teacher on the first day and ask her to call me Emma? Yes I did. Was it because of Emma Bunton from the Spice Girls? Yes it was.

Needless to say, Emma was fuming when she got Posh Spice at the end.

Before taking the Spice Girls quiz, Emma discussed what it was like to win an Oscar and her answer was pretty sweet. When she won the award, she reacted like a pretty normal person. One of the main highlights was seeing her little brother’s reaction.

That was the sweetest moment ever. I asked him to hold my hand – my little brother is my favourite person who has ever lived, of all time – I love him so much. He’s pretty great, but I asked him to hold my hand and when they said my name, he jumped up before me and was like “OHH!!!!” There’s this picture from the back of the theatre that my mom now has framed. It’s so sweet because I’m still sitting down and he’s up and he’s the most calm person, but that’s what I remember the very most. 


Despite being wildly successful and the highest paid woman in Hollywood, Emma could not help but feel starstruck when she received her Oscar from Leonardo DiCaprio. 

I had a framed photo of him in my room when I was a kid, that was signed by him. It was just like walking up there and getting to be near him was really exciting. So, it sounds like everything other than [actually getting the Oscar] was better than the thing itself. That’s not what I mean, I’m very grateful.

As if that wasn’t enough quality Emma Stone content, she began to talk about what it’s like being the only American cast member in a film about British characters.

Here’s what everybody thought of her English accent. 


Jimmy also shared a little preview of her upcoming film The Favourite (the one where she put her English accent to use) at the end of the interview.
