• Emma Stone is changing her name
  • Actually it's her real name: Emily
  • THIS is why she wants to change things now

The actress, in a heartfelt interview, expressed her wish to be called by her birth name, Emily, shedding light on the complexities of fame and identity in the entertainment industry. This article delves into Stone's journey from Emily to Emma and back again, exploring the reasons behind her bold wish to reclaim her true identity.

Goodbye, Emma. Hello, Emily!

Emma Stone, the dazzling Oscar-winning actress with a career that many in Hollywood can only dream of, has dropped a bombshell that has fans and industry insiders buzzing. At 35, after years of being known as Emma, Stone is ready to embrace her birth name, Emily, once again. But why the sudden change? Let's dive into the heart of the matter.

"It's Emily, please!" In a revealing conversation with her 'The Curse' co-star Nathan Fielder, Stone opened up about her struggle with her stage name.

Near the beginning of their sit-down, Fielder told THR that he planned to call Stone her actual name, which is Emily, during the chat. 

"Before we continue, I’d like to say something. Her name’s Emily, but she goes by Emma professionally," he explained. "So when there’s people that don’t know her, I end up saying Emma. But I’m going to just say Emily from here on."

"For some reason, I was like, ‘I can’t do it anymore. Just call me Emily,'" she confessed. Despite her fame, Stone yearns for the authenticity of her real name, a sentiment that resonates with many in the spotlight.

Stone responded, "You can say Emma. You can say anything." She also explained why she goes by the stage name. 

"When I get to know them, people that I work with do. It’s just because my name was taken (by another actor in the Screen Actors Guild)," she said.

But recently she decided that she wants to embrace her birth name

Stone's transformation into Emma wasn't a personal choice but a necessity. The name "Emily Stone" was already claimed by another actress, forcing our star to adopt "Emma" for her SAG-AFTRA membership. It's a common tale in Tinseltown, where names are as much a brand as they are an identity.

Interestingly, the name Emma isn't foreign to Stone's identity. As a child, she was enchanted by Baby Spice, Emma Bunton, of the Spice Girls.

"Growing up, I was super blonde, and my real name is Emily, but I wanted to be called Emma because of Baby Spice," Stone shared on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. It seems life has a way of coming full circle!

Amidst the name controversy, Stone remains unbothered by the glitz and glam of Hollywood. She even shrugged off a joke made by Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel about her movie 'Poor Things,' proving her down-to-earth nature.

"Did he upset me? No!" Stone declared, showcasing her resilience and sense of humor.
