Emma Stone

Born: November 6, 1988, Scottsdale, Arizona - USA

Emily Jean Stone is an American actress.

The recipient of such accolades as an Academy Award, a BAFTA Award, and a Golden Globe, Stone, as of 2017, is the highest-paid actress in the world.

She has appeared in Forbes Celebrity 100 in 2013 and the Time 100 in 2017 and has been cited in the media as one of the most talented actresses of her generation.

Born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, Stone began acting as a child, in a theater production of The Wind in the Willows in 2000. As a teenager, she relocated to Los Angeles with her mother, and made her television debut in “In Search of the New Partridge Family” (2004), a reality show that produced only an unsold pilot.

After small television roles, she made her film debut in “Superbad” (2007), and received positive media attention for her role in “Zombieland” (2009).

The 2010 teen comedy “Easy A” was Stone's first starring role, earning her nominations for the BAFTA Rising Star Award and a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress. This breakthrough was followed by further success in the romantic comedy “Crazy, Stupid, Love” and the drama “The Help” (both 2011).

Stone gained wider recognition for playing Gwen Stacy in the 2012 superhero film “The Amazing Spider-Man”, and its sequel in 2014. She was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for the role of a recovering drug addict in the black comedy-drama “Birdman” (2014).

Her Broadway debut came in a revival of the musical Cabaret (2014–2015).

Stone won an Academy Award for Best Actress for playing an aspiring actress in the highly successful musical film “La La Land” (2016), following which she portrayed Billie Jean King in the biographical sports film “Battle of the Sexes” (2017).

During the production of “The Amazing Spider-Man” in 2010, Stone dated co-star Andrew Garfield. The nature of their relationship was well-documented by the media, with frequent speculation about an impending engagement or a break-up. The couple refused to talk about it publicly, though they made several appearances together. In 2015, they were reported to have broken up.

In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women's movement, the 1973 tennis match between women's world champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men's-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. The fiercely private King was not only championing for equality, but also struggling to come to terms with her own sexuality, as her friendship with Marilyn Barnett (Andrea Riseborough) developed. And Riggs, one of the first self-made media-age celebrities, wrestled with his gambling demons, at the expense of his family and wife Priscilla (Elisabeth Shue). Together, Billie and Bobby served up a cultural spectacle that resonated far beyond the tennis court, sparking discussions in bedrooms ...

It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than himself. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: Oscorp.

Los Angeles, 1949. Ruthless, Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and — if he has his way — every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop… except, perhaps, for the small, secret crew of LAPD outsiders led by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin) and Jerry Wooters (Ryan Gosling), who come together to try to tear Cohen’s world apart.

TV Show

Lucky Louie is an American television sitcom created by Louis C.K., which aired on HBO for one season in 2006. In addition to being the creator, writer and executive producer of the series, C.K. starred as the eponymous Louie, a part-time mechanic. The show revolves around the life of Louie, who lives with his wife, Kim, who is a full-time nurse, and their four-year-old daughter, Lucy. A first for HBO, Lucky Louie was filmed before a live studio audience, in a multiple-camera setup. HBO ordered 12 episodes of the series which aired during the 2006 summer season. In addition, eight scripts for a second season were ordered. In September 2006, however, HBO announced that the show had been canceled. Creator Louis C.K. has claimed that the show's swift cancellation was not primarily attributed to ratings, and that the show rated higher than Deadwood. In Canada, Lucky Louie was shown on Movie Central, The Movie Network, and on The Comedy Network. Lucky Louie is, at first glance, a classic-style situation comedy inspired by Norman Lear's classic shows. Unlike many of its contemporaries, it features a three-camera shoot in front of a live audience with no artificial laugh track, much like the classic sitcoms of the 1970s such as All in the Family. In premise, Lucky Louie is similar to other classic sitcoms like All in the Family or Roseanne, telling the story of an unsophisticated working-class family. In interviews, Louis C.K. criticized other sitcoms for making the settings too elaborate and decided to have his show's sets look simple, shallow, and spartan. The show deals with serious mature topics like sex and racism, uses adult language, and displays nudity.

The series then moved to CBS on September 25, 2009, airing its final episode overall on January 21, 2011. Themed on supernatural gifts, its lead character, Allison DuBois, is a medium employed as a consultant for the Phoenix, Arizona district attorney's office. Allison and her husband Joe are the parents of three daughters, all of whom inherited Allison's gift. The show was initially based on the experiences of medium Allison DuBois, who claims she has worked with law enforcement agencies across the country in criminal investigations. Medium was created by Glenn Gordon Caron and was produced by his company Picturemaker Productions and Kelsey Grammer's Grammnet Productions in association with Paramount Television from 2005–06, CBS Paramount Television from 2006–09, and finally CBS Television Studios from 2009 until the series ended. The series aired on NBC during its first five seasons before switching to CBS for the sixth and seventh seasons. The production division of CBS had assumed production of Medium in 2006 after absorbing the television arm of the Paramount Pictures film studio. Paramount's home entertainment arm still held DVD distribution rights in conjunction with CBS DVD.
