Stone raves about les­bian sex scene

24 Hours Toronto - - Entertainment -

Emma Stone feels lucky to have landed ac­tress An­drea Rise­bor­ough as her part­ner for her first movie love scene in Bat­tle of the Sexes.

The La La Land star por­trays Bil­lie Jean King in the new film, which re­volves around the ten­nis great’s fa­mous 1973 ex­hi­bi­tion match with Bobby Riggs, played by Steve Carell. Bat­tle of the Sexes also re­quired Emma to get hot and sweaty be­tween the sheets, as the sto­ry­line ex­plored King’s les­bian love af­fair with hair stylist Mar­i­lyn Bar­nett – the Os­car win­ner’s first in­ti­mate scenes on­screen.

“I couldn’t be luck­ier,” she gushed to Van­ity Fair. “She is truly the most trans­for­ma­tive, in­cred­i­ble ac­tor. So it was like a true lucky break on my part.”
