Emma Stone en­joyed shar­ing her 'trau­matic au­di­tion'

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

The 28-year-old ac­tress was only happy to open up about some of the "hor­ror sto­ries" from her first few years in Hol­ly­wood with her co-stars in the ro­man­tic com­edy film. She said: "With 'Bird­man', my char­ac­ter was out­side the ac­tor's mind re­ally - she was just his daugh­ter, not to­tally in­volved in that world. But with 'La La Land', I had a lit­tle more trep­i­da­tion play­ing an ac­tress in Los An­ge­les who was au­di­tion­ing over and over. It's pretty close to my ex­act ap­pear­ance when I first moved there. It was scary - like, is this go­ing to be too much? But then it quickly be­came fun be­cause we were all shar­ing hor­ror sto­ries and dra­ma­tiz­ing our lit­tle trau­matic au­di­tions." And whilst star­ring as Mia in 'La La Land' didn't re­mind Emma of one au­di­tion in par­tic­u­lar, it did cast her mind back to when she got the role in 'Su­per bad' and spoke of how the cast­ing di­rec­tor helped her ca­reer progress. She told Canada's The Globe and Mail news­pa­per: "It didn't di­rectly re­mind me of any sin­gle au­di­tion I went on where I was, 'Wow, that might be the one!' But what it did re­mind me of was the cast­ing di­rec­tor who put me in 'Su­per bad'. "She just had a feel­ing about me, and she kept bring­ing me in for things over three years. If it weren't for her, I don't know what would've hap­pened. But the au­di­tion for 'Su­per bad' was pretty dif­fer­ent than here - I wasn't singing a bal­lad, but, well, there was im­pro­vis­ing with Jonah [Hill]. I guess that's kind of sim­i­lar."
