Emma Stone Sucked Her Thumb Until She Was 11

Emma Stone is good at flying under the radar despite becoming more and more famous every day, due in part to her Golden Globe nominated role in Easy A and in part to her new role in The Amazing Spider-Man. She mostly retains her anonymity by not getting high and drunk and crashing into police cars which leads me to believe there’s something seriously wrong with her. Maybe Hollywood hasn’t installed her PR chip yet.

Whatever the case, she’s in the current issue of Elle and does the “I was an awkward kid” thing. Although with a little twist.

On having braces and wearing glasses while growing up: “And I sucked my thumb until I was 11, so I had this expander in. I was a good-looking kid. I never felt, like, dorky. I was just like, ‘Yup, these are my braces. I’ve had them forever.’”

On not being recognized as easily in public with her new look: “I mean, I haven’t been around very long. I can’t expect everyone to have seen The House Bunny. Oh God. I am having such waves of internal embarrassment, which now I’m admitting on a tape recorder. This is so one of the things I should keep in my head.” [Elle]

One of the most important things you can get from this is there’s a good chance Emma Stone has an oral fixation. You know what that means, right? *Pushes tongue against cheek, pretends to brush teeth*

I still suck my thumb. I am 23. I have straight teeth and I do not have a speech impediment.

No, but you have your filthy thumb in your filthy mouth and then touch stuff the rest of also have to touch. Grow the f**k up and get your hands out of your mouth.
