Emma Stone dresses her Oscar stat­uette in tiny rub­ber un­der­wear she re­ceived from Acad­emy Awards host Jimmy Kim­mel.

The 28-yearold star re­ceived the Best Ac­tress prize for her role in mu­si­cal La La Land at this year’s cer­e­mony in Los An­ge­les.

Kim­mel, who in­tro­duced Leonardo DiCaprio to to wear in­ap­pro­pri­ate clothes, and pres­sured to get work as a young ac­tress. “You don’t get to mess up when you have some­body around you who is con­stantly watch­ing,” she says. “I went through a re­ally rough pe­riod, a re­ally bad chap­ter,” she ex­plains, re­veal­ing on­line trolls have al­ways made her life hell. “It was au­to­mat­i­cally ‘You’re a fat slut. You’re a whore’. I was like, ‘Maybe I’m go­ing to lose some weight, dye my hair, change how I dress... Maybe I’m do­ing some­thing wrong’. I ac­tu­ally got more hate by try­ing to change.” present her with the award, sent Stone the un­usual gift which she has used to pro­tect her Oscar’s mod­esty.

“He sent un­der­wear for (my Oscar), like rub­ber un­der­wear, so he’s wear­ing tighty-whities (tight, white pants),” the ac­tress told Peo­ple mag­a­zine. “Jimmy said, ‘I’d like to bring some de­cency into your home.’”
