In a few short years, Emma Stone has become one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood — and for good reason. The actress has proven her versatility throughout her career, taking on everything from period dramas like The Help to huge comic book-inspired blockbusters like The Amazing Spider-Man. Below, check out 10 of Stone’s most memorable roles in her career so far.
1. Easy A
When Easy A came out in 2010, Stone had appeared in several notable roles. But the teen comedy put the actress on the map, effectively cementing her leading lady status. The movie, which provides a modern take on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, stars Stone as Olive Penderghast, a California teen who lies to her best friend about losing her virginity only to have the rumor spread all around the school, earning her a bad reputation and ostracizing her from some of her classmates. These days, we know Stone is as funny and witty in person as she is in the movies, but this film helped prove her sarcastic comedy prowess. The movie was both a commercial and critical success, with her performance earning widely positive reviews.
