Emma Stone may have recently broken up with Spiderman co-star Andrew Garfield, but the flame-haired, 26-year-old actress has been making serious waves in the film industry – Oscar nominated for Birdman and set to receive more acclaim in Woody Allen’s forthcoming Irrational Man. What’s more, Stone is gracing the May cover of Interview Magazine in all her green-eyed glory. The issue, featuring a shoot styled by Elin Svahn and photographed by Craig McDean in Los Angeles, is out now. While the editorial shows off Stone’s more romantic side, describing ex Garfield as “a poet”, her wit is captured in an interview by the one-and-only Diane Keaton.

Keaton makes the perfect interviewer of Stone – both possess a certain self-deprecating, comedic charm, both have been muses to Allen, and both have appeared on the cover of Interview. In the Q&A, the two women chat about growing up in the West, becoming “frozen in time” by success, and their favourite movie endings. “What’s strange about the way my brain functions is that the only thing that has ever made me feel calm is knowing clearly what I want” says Stone when asked by Keaton if she feels guilty about being so successful and ambitious.

The interview is a candid portrayal of one of Hollywood’s leading ladies. In the last decade or so, as the big top Hollywood circus has seemingly consolidated itself around the tent poles of the scatological comedy and the superhero melodrama of teen-boy dreams, even the most talented leading ladies have to make do with slight, sexy tomboy parts or girl-next-door roles.

It’s slim pickings—repeatedly demonstrating how down to hang and talk sports or make toilet jokes with the fellas they are, but also, oh wait, she is actually a fiery sex pot if and when we care to take notice. But, at only 26 years of age, Emma Stone has become one of the most singular and dynamic stars in movies by shaking the dust off of these traps and filling them with a magnetism and verve all her own.
