After Fans BLASTS and completely ROASTS Emma Stone that she CRIED for her statement “Taylor Swift is an a**hole” – She vows to NEVER EVER in her life Joke about Taylor Swift again

Emma Stone has vowed to ‘never joke about Taylor Swift again’ after the actress called the musician an a**hole for loudly applauding her Golden Globes win.

The Oscar winner, 35, made the quip in the press room at the awards ceremony, where she was asked her thoughts on Taylor, 34, loudly cheering her success.

Emma replied: ‘What an a**hole, am I right? I’ve known her for almost 20 years, I was very happy she was there.’

Now, Emma has said she ‘definitely won’t make a joke like that again,’ after it was ‘pulled out of context’.

‘What a dope,’ she said of herself in a joint cover interview with her Poor Things director Yorgos Lanthimos for Variety, which was released on Wednesday.

Taylor and Emma’s alliance goes back to a meeting in 2008 at the Young Hollywood Awards. ‘We just kept in touch ever since and became great friends,’ Emma revealed in January.

At the time, both were still only rising stars – Emma had starred in the high school comedy Superbad the previous year and Taylor had tasted success with her first, self-titled album but was not yet the all powerful cultural juggernaut she is today.

Their friendship deepened as both women became ever more famous and successful. For some years, they lived nearby in New York and would sometimes be glimpsed out for dinner or at nightclubs together.

It’s thought that Emma helped to play Cupid for Swift with her previous long-term boyfriend, handsome British actor Joe Alwyn who was Emma’s co-star in The Favourite – although the actress has always been too discreet and too loyal to confirm those reports.

It’s also thought that Taylor wrote the song When Emma Falls In Love about her pal, who is now married to comedy writer Dave McCary. On stage recently, Taylor shared that the song was about ‘one of’ her ‘best friends’. (Asked about the song, Emma says that only Taylor can answer who it is about.)

As well as a shared dry sense of humour, both women prize their privacy despite living in the glare of global fame.

In 2018, Emma said: ‘I think friendship is pretty much everything. Here’s another turning-30 thing I’ve realised: You pick your family. You realise that your friendships, the people who go with you into these next phases of your life – you’re choosing your family.’ She added: ‘Loyalty is enormous.’

Emma won Best Performance by a Female Actor in a Motion Picture at the Golden Globes for her role in period fantasy Poor Things, and has since picked up gongs at the BAFTAs and Critics Choice Awards.

She was the main star of Oscar-nominated flick, which was based on Alasdair Gray’s 1992 novel of the same name and also starred Mark Ruffalo, Ramy Youssef and Willem Dafoe.

Emma – who is currently in talks to work with the filmmaker for the fourth time – detailed her anxiety in her and Yorgos’s Variety interview.

‘I felt like I was failing her in the first week, and failing Yorgos. It was just difficult. I could talk to him about it,’ she said.

Emma went on to state that she had a set idea about how she would portray Baxter and that she felt as if she was not living up to her own standards.

‘I think because I had lived with her in my mind for so long and I was so deeply in love with Bella, it terrified me not to live up to her as a character,’ she recalled.

However, the Cruella star remarked that she was able to voice her concerns to Lanthimos, with whom she collaborated on the 2018 feature The Favourite, and that his style of working helped her regain her confidence.

She stated: ‘I could talk to Yorgos about it, and we were able to discover as we went. And because it’s a safe environment, it doesn’t feel rushed.’

The Academy Award-winning performer then opened up about what attracted her to the role of Baxter, a young woman whose brain was replaced by that of her unborn child following a suicide attempt.

‘I think that’s why I was so crazy about her. It’s the idea of not living with that self-judgement or shame, as you say, or the social contracts that you make as a child growing up,’ she said.

Emma went on to discuss her close working relationship with Lanthimos, 50, and opened up about how he selected his cast based on their personality.

‘Yorgos feels like a lot of his process of working with people or putting people in his films has to do with who they are as a person. It’s not just performance-based.’

The filmmaker also recalled scheduling ‘weeks and weeks of just playing games, laughing and being comfortable with each other’ in order to build a rapport among the cast members prior to the start of filming.

Poor Things premiered during the 80th Venice International Film Festival, and it was released in the United States in December of last year.

The movie was met with widespread critical and commercial success, and it currently holds a rating of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Poor Things was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture, while Stone and Lanthimos have been put up in the Best Actress and Best Director categories.

The feature received a total of 11 Oscar nods in various categories, including Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Cinematography and Best Costume Design.
