In a new interview with The Advocate, Emma Stone talks about her big gay following, having a crush on Christina Hendricks and becoming a lesbian. Two of those things are very relevant to my interests.
Celebrity activism: I’m the least eloquent person on the planet, so I don’t know that I’d be the right person to speak out on anything. But that’s what’s so wonderful about good movies and writers: I can be a part of a project that says what I wish I could say. My ultimate goal is to continue doing movies with some sort of message that can make a change, like Easy A or The Help. Because that’s what good movies do for me: They teach me and bring injustices to my attention.
Strong female roles: Oh, I’m so flattered. The tomboy quality is probably coincidental just due to the fact that my voice hits male octaves most of the time. I don’t really think about it — I just respond to what I read — but I must be subconsciously drawn to women who, even if they don’t necessarily have their shit together, are secure within themselves and don’t need a man to fix them.
Girl crushes: Christina Hendricks. It’s a no-brainer. Everything about her does it for me. That’s my kind of woman.
Lesbianism: No, I don’t have a girlfriend. But who knows? You love who you love…In some friendships there’s so much love between two people that there’s just a fine line. Hey, I have girlfriends that I’m incredibly close to, and there’s definitely a fine line there.
Note that this interview was done by The Advocate so of course there’s going to be some pandering going on but that doesn’t mean I can’t imagine Emma Stone getting it on with another chick. Hey, I don’t walk through your fantasies wearing your mother’s panties with red lipstick smeared over my face so don’t ruin my fantasies with your “facts”. Go be a downer somewhere else.
