Honesty was never the best policy for serial ladies' man Jacob (Ryan Gosling), until he meets Hannah, played by Emma Stone in Warner Bros.' new, delightful romantic comedy “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” Unlike all other women, she is somehow immune to his charm and his best pick-up lines, and has no trouble resisting Jacob’s full court press…for a while, anyway.
“She is studying for the bar exam and has a boyfriend, Richard, who’s also a lawyer,” describes Emma Stone. Multi-platinum-selling recording artist Josh Groban makes his feature film acting debut as Richard.
“But,” Stone acknowledges, “as a suitor, Richard is kind of boring, and Hannah’s approaching a crossroads in her life, trying to figure out whether to stay with the safe guy or go a little wild. She does see that Richard’s very sweet, and that there are probably a lot of girls who would be all about Richard.”
Even as she’s hoping for something more with him, Hannah’s realizing that she is indeed perhaps a little wilder than she’s really allowed herself to be, that maybe she’s too young to settle for someone so…settled.
“It’s possible that she needs someone a little spicier—and if you’re looking for spice, Jacob’s got it. He’s the whole rack,” Stone laughs.
“Emma is one in a million,” producer Denise Di Novi states. “She brought so much energy and curiosity and intelligence to Hannah, and those are precisely the qualities which spark Jacob’s feelings for the character.”
“They just have some kind of unavoidable chemistry, even though she tries hard to avoid him,” Stone adds. “Of course, every girl has had some flutters for the Jacob-type at least once in her life, so Hannah figures, ‘What harm is there in indulging that, just once?’”
And what was it like working with Ryan Gosling? Answers Stone, “I want to work with him in every movie. [Laughs] I’m very fond of him. What a find! That was such a discovery in my own life. I feel like I’m so appreciative of meeting Ryan. We had so much fun together.
“Glenn [Ficarra] and John [Requa], the directors, were really open and incredible. They let us explore and do a lot of improv and find things in each other on camera and off. It was a really incredible work environment just because the lines were kind of blurred. It was just so much fun between takes and we were able to hopefully keep that alive in the movie.”
Emma Stone is one of Hollywood’s most sought-out young actresses, having garnered both critical and audience acclaim for her starring role as Olive in Will Gluck’s comedy “Easy A.” Her performance also earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, as well as an MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance and a nomination for the BAFTA Rising Star Award. She can be seen next month in director Gluck’s “Friends with Benefits,” alongside Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, followed by “The Help,” an adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s New York Times best-selling novel. She will also appear as Gwen Stacy in director Marc Webb’s highly anticipated “The Amazing Spider-Man,” opposite Andrew Garfield in the title role.
Opening across the Philippines on August 17, “Crazy, Stupid Love” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
