MAK­ING WAVES EMMA STONE

USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - AMERICA’S MARKETS -

In case you didn’t know, Emma Stone is a ma­jor Spice Girls fan – so much so that her name was in­spired by one of its mem­bers. On Thurs­day’s episode of “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fal­lon,” the ac­tress re­vealed she started go­ing by a dif­fer­ent name thanks to the ’90s girl group. “My real name is Emily, but I wanted to be called Emmabecause of ‘Baby Spice,’ and guess what? Now I am,” she laughed. She con­tin­ued, “It wasn’t nec­es­sar­ily be­cause of her, but yes, in sec­ond grade, did I go up to the teacher and ask her to call me Emma? Yes, I did. And was it be­cause of Emma Lee Bun­ton from the Spice Girls? Yes, it was.”
