Emma Stone Talks Andrew Garfield, Build-A-Bear in ‘Vogue’


Emma Stone: actress, quirky girl-next -door, dog lover, Spice Girls fanatic, and Build-A-Bear enthusiast?

An afternoon at Build-A-Bear Workshop followed by lunch at Hot Dog On A Stick may seem like the setting for a child’s birthday party, but, according to The Amazing Spider-Man 2 star, it’s the perfect backdrop for an interview with  Vogue.

She tells the mag for its May issue that she grew up “Emily” Stone, and performed in various local plays in her hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona. When she knew she wanted to become an actress, she set her sights on L.A., and convinced her parents to move westward via PowerPoint Presentation.

Since then, she has starred in tons of movies alongside some of Hollywood’s finest actors, including boyfriend Andrew Garfield. Though the couple, who have been dating since 2011, usually keep quiet about their relationship, Emma tells the mag that she: “learned a lot by being around him. And, you know, he is an incredibly important person to me.”

The 25-year-old  laughs at the thought of herself being considered a style icon, but she does admit that she love to attend fashion shows: “I like to look through the glass,” she says. “As I’ve been more exposed to it, I find it interesting. I see what’s beautiful about clothes.”
