Emma Stone: “I was kind of born with a 10-year-old boy’s body”

Untitled-1 - Emma Stone: "I was kind of born with a 10-year-old boy’s body"

Emma Stone recently made a few interesting comments about her figure – details from Radar:

Well, I was kind of born with a 10-year-old boy’s body. For years, I was like: ‘Please let me grow some kind of curvature!’ But it did not happen. I mean, I’ve kind of given up the ghost on that one. It’s not happening… I wish. I’d kill for some cha-chas and a tuckus! Then, I had stress-acne when I was 20, when I did Easy A, which they kindly video-airbrushed out of the movie. I still really like [spray tanning too]. But it definitely makes me look like I have leprosy after a point.’

Emma is definitely looking skinny these days, but her figure has changed quite noticeably from a few years ago:

Well.. I think she has curves, so i dont know what shes talking about. She looks great though.

I don’t think she has curves, but she definitely doesn’t look like a 10 year old boy. She is just thin, but it is how she’s built and it fits her perfectly. She’s adorable.

I don’t really see much curves… but she works what she’s got! I love Emma Stone, she is absolutely gorgeous and I think she looks terrific at any weight!

I dooo prefer her with the red hair though haha. But she looks good blonde too.

I love the red hair on her too, but she’s actually naturally blonde. Not neccesarily this color blonde though.

she looked like trailer trash in 2006. srsly bleached blonde hair really ups her appearance. and her face also looks softer now, it has more structure and better fat deposition in the right places. in 2006 her face looked hard and her skin looked like tough trailer park skin

Well…you obviously don’t know what curves are if you think she has them. She is beautiful, but I’d be lying to say she is curvaceous, which she isn’t.

Can she explain why she looks like the 10 year old boy hasn’t had enough to eat these last 3 years?

I totally agree. If you want some curves, eat the way you did a few years ago. At least then you’ll look like a woman and not a pre-teen.

I think that’s somewhat of a narrow-minded thing to say. First off, even though she is slim, she does look like she eats. Slim =/= starvation. She is not a completely bony 90 pound woman where you can say she is depriving herself concretely. Second of all, I think what she was trying to say is that she doesn’t have the body shape that is curvy. For some people, even if they gain 50 pounds, they will not look like Sofia Vergara. I do think she is somewhat curvy, but at the same time she is not the best example… Read more »

She’s definitely depriving herself, and I can say that concretely. You can’t be that thin without having a super clean, super low calorie diet with almost no daily indulgences.

She was curvy in The House bunny (2005) and Medium (2007), which she is semi-topless in

She had breasts and a rounder look.

She is very skinny now.
And she has smaller breasts now, along with smaller thighs, arms and waist.

Also, her face is slimmer as well.

But even the way she looked with some weight on, she still really didn’t have curves. If you look up the the form fitting red carpet dresses she’s worn, let’s say the 2011 Golden Globes, where she’s a few pounds heavier, she still has a flat bum and not much going on in the chest area either.

She’s obviously refering to her body shape. I’d still consider her curveless at her highest weight, in fact, I’d say Kirsten Stewart is curvier. Don’t really think Emma ever looks boyish though because her frame is too delicate, which is why she can pull off the super skinny.

Christiana
Guest
Christiana

I don’t agree with her comment. She just became like a 10 year old boy. She hasn’t always been thin like that. She definitely lost A LOT OF WEIGHT! I used to think she hated dieting & exercising but I think she did get the hollywood treatment and dieted.

She does looks OK though. I wouldn’t mind having her thin body.

jemima

I agree. I don’t think she should complain about being flat if she lost so much weight…

Anne
Guest

I think she looks OK too. She doesn’t look deathly or ill. Just…skinnier. Her weight loss didn’t alter her other than physically. And personality wise, she still seems the same. I think she’s still quite likeable. She never really does or says anything problematic, is not stumbling out of clubs drunk and getting caught with drugs, I haven’t heard or read any complaints about her work ethic and I still think she’s one of the better actresses in her age group. So what if she’s lost a little weight? I’d take skinnier Emma any day than a scandal ridden Emma.

Effie

I’m not looking to defend her, but I will say this: I was watching Superbad the other day (2007/2008?), and I thought, ‘Emma Stone looks heavier’, but she was still very ‘straight’ up and down – flat bum, small b~~~~.

When I gain weight, I don’t get more curves, I just get more general pudge. Emma has lost some but I think she means she has quite a block-y build. It’s just a shame these actresses feel the need to compare themselves to prepubescent boys, because these body shapes are just as much ‘real woman’ shapes as any other.

Heather
Guest
Heather

I agree. When I gain weight, I don’t transform into sexpot curvy girl. I’m just heavier all over. She’s obviously purposely staying this thin, it isn’t as if she’s eating burgers and just can’t gain weight. She doesn’t have the Candace WHR or Sophia Vergara raw sex appeal. But she isn’t naturally that skinny … is that what she’s insinuating?

La la la la
Guest
La la la la

well, she didn’t really have much in the way of a chest when she was heavier either. and i’m guessing not much of a bum. i think she might be telling the truth! although the skinniness is not “how she was born”, her shape is in fact pretty non curvy no matter what weight. she can’t act like she’s always been thin though. and her mom isn’t skinny soo.. she can act like she was born underweight but i don’t buy it.

Since she doesnt really have any curves i can totally understand why she would rather be thin than having a boyish figure AND fat !

Yeah, because she was SO FAT in the 2006-2007 pictures. *sarcasm*

Agreed. Non curvy women look better when they are skinny imo. At least, they have a modelesque silhouette. Maybe that’s what she wanted? Personally I don’t like her face when she’s heavier

Nobsnob

In 2006-2007 she was already slim and imo looked better and healthier than now!!
She looks too fragile now, she has lost that “cute girl next door” thing, she’s rail thin and blonde like every Hollywood starlet.

How can someone make such a comment about themselves? I think she has a great figure and looks nothing like a “10 year old boy”. She’s beautiful.

Em
Guest
She’s a cute girl at either weight – she’s lucky she can pull off either size. I lost weight a few years ago and looked terrible – my upper body looked scrawny and emaciated, but my legs stayed true to a pear’s shape. It sucked. I can’t have thin legs whether I am 100 or 120 lbs., but at least at 115 my upper body doesn’t look quite so disproportionate to my lower body. I only lose weight in my already thin upper-half of my body, which seems strange. Don’t most people lose weight a little everywhere? I call BS… Read more »

I agree, she looks cute at both sizes, and even when she had more pounds on her frame, it still remained pretty rectangular (not a lot of b❆❆b or bum going on). But I think she looked nice as well, and I do prefer her as a redhead. And no, people can gain/lose weight depending on their frame. I’m a pear shape as well, and when I lost 18-20 pounds once, my upper half looked emanciated, and my legs only started getting thinner because I was not at a healthy weight. After gaining it all back over a period of… Read more »

Haha, Lorraine, I gained some 10 pounds on my first year at university too. I was constantly sleep-deprived and stressed. I ate a lot. It was how I got energy.
And i am a pear as well. Though my disproportion is not very distict. I always face dilemma: to gain weight to 120lb and have some B cup b❆❆bs and curvier legs. Or stay at 112-115lb with A cup breasts and slim/ quite thin legs.

Em
Guest

That’s what I’ve been doing lately – I’ve been eating a lot to pick up my energy levels. I always feel really tired if I’m not eating small frequent meals. I’d prefer a non-calorie source of energy, but no luck with that. I fall asleep if I’m not eating, which puts a damper on my inner urge to eat very litte. Haha. I’m making cookies now muahahaha. My fast metabolism is my only saving grace. 😉

I’ve been a fan of Emma for a while and seen some photos of her from a few years back, I think during The House Bunny promo, where her body shape is exactly what it is now. Then she gained some weight (Zombieland) and lost some again (see Easy A press photos)…and it repeats. She never seems to gain more than 10 pounds and when she does, it definitely shows in her hips and thighs. I can see why she said that about her body though just seeing as how her body as transitioned over the years. This is definitely… Read more »

The quote from her posted here is chucked together and edited and seems awkward. Here’s the full quotes where she talks about her body shape: Switching gears yet again, how do you stay healthy? Do you have a workout regimen? “Well, I was kind of born with a 10-year-old boy’s body. For years, I was like, ‘Please let me grow some kind of curvature!’ But it did not happen. So…this is my natural form for the most part. I’m sure that will change as the years go on. But, yeah, I have a boy body. I work out when I’m… Read more »

chunked*

Em
Guest

It’s still not entirely true, even in the context of the full quote. She’s really just trying to pass off her current (under weight) body as being au naturel, which it is not.

If anything, her natural form is a bit broad. You can see in the above pictures her shoulders are broad, and her neck is short and thick. She’s not naturally dainty – if anything, she has to be very underweight to achieve a dainty look, like Cyrus – naturally Emma has a husky build (or, form), not a 10-year-old’s build.

Layla Bach
Guest
Layla Bach

I think by “form” and “10-year old boy body” she means her shape which makes sense because she says she wishes she had curves. She’s given up on trying to exercise to get them because of her shape. Of course, this is only what I think. 🙂

Em
Guest

In any case, I wouldn’t equate having a ruler-shaped body with having a little boy’s body. She doesn’t have the body of a boy or a child. This kind of self-deprecating BS is just attention-seeking.

katy

curves or not, she has definitely lost weight in the past two years, imo she’s a bit too thin now. I prefer her with brown hair than when it’s red or blonde

‘Stress acne’? Ok. I’m going to call it because I know from experience. ED. Definitely a possibility. It sounds exactly like what happened to me. I looked exactly like her after picture, I wasn’t healthy at all.

Thank you so much for posting this, @Versus. I always thought she was curvier and had lost weight but could never really support that with any articles or commentary on it. But it’s obvious from these photos. She did that classic Hollywood thing – the road to fame is an emaciating one.

Well I liked her a bit heavier, but I am glad she stopped spray tanning and went with her natural skin color.

Hazal

I think she doesn’t realise that there is something like google where people can look up older pictures of her. So, we can see that her current body is not her natural weight. Does she think we’re dumb?
But: I looooove that chequered coat!

aalyceh

I reckon. I was happy to accept her new waif-ish figure and focus on her acting, but oh no, she has to shove some PR-mediated rubbish about ‘born this way’ down our throats. So now, her weight loss just annoys me.

Me too. It’s like, these girls in Hollywood get caught up in their ED but are so delusional that they give the same awful explanations for their weight that I did when I had an ED. I wish more people could see through it. It’s so sad 🙁

Pandora

I can see where she’s coming from. I idolize voluptuous women, but it’s just not something I’ll ever be able to attain for myself, so I just stick to being a stick. Except I do workout a lot, as I’d just look and feel sickly without some muscle tone.

BTW I just love her impish smirk she’s always got! It’s pretty cute

Em

Oh, yeah, I just noticed her smile – how does she mange to pull that off? I would look so stupid smiling like that – haha.

Pandora

lol yeah totally. I’d either look like I was passing gas or really demented.

Yes, she has clearly lost some weight in the past 6 years.. but honestly that happens to some women. As you age (at least for some) you lose the baby fat. For me, it didn’t happen until I was about 25!

I get what she’s saying, but I wish she didn’t phrase it like this. The pubescent boy thing is getting so cliche and tired; plus taken out of context it sounds like she’s post-op.

I have no problem at all with thin woman, or woman who work hard to become thin

I have a huge problem with woman who work hard to become thin and then say that they are “unfortunetly” destined to be like that, and they wish they weren’t…huh????

I HATE that!

I mean why is it so politically incorrect in hollywood to admit to liking being thin? They ALL say this, its even worse when they pretend they cant get bigger…um we saw you a few years ago bigger…its quite easy actually…put the cheese burger in your mouth…swallow.

I remember when she was a few pounds heavier I’d read comments (not here specifically) that she was “fat” and now that she’s lost weight the comments are now “she’s too skinny!!! eat a cheeseburger!!” If she did admit that she has lost weight, then people will cry that she’s advocating eating disorders. She doesn’t admit it and well, people call her a liar. She can’t win either way. Just goes to show what Hollywood does to you and what their expectations are. With producers, directors, studio heads and the media telling you that you’re too fat and need to… Read more »

IMO Her face looks so much better now especially compared to her 2006 picture. Im the same, when heavier I have such a moon face, no structure or shape what so ever.
Also I kind of see what she is saying in regards to curves.
When she was heavier she still had a ruler shape but with thicker limbs.
Again IMO curvy woman look better skinny because atleast it gives them a modelesque silhouette like someone else above mentioned.

Well she didn’t really have any curves before. To me curves are mainly b❆❆bs and but and she seemed pretty narrow. It looks like she gains weight in other places so it’s better for her that she looks that skinny. And I think it suits her more too. I think she’d probably like to stay that skinny and have some b❆❆bs and but. I am skinny too and without b❆❆bs but I’m not really but-less and if I would gain wight it would really just go into my stomach and other places just not in my b~~~~. So I understand… Read more »

She certainly doesn’t have a boy’s body – but she is very thin and not very shapely. I get confused by her shape. In The House Bunny, she did appear to have curves to me – b❆❆bs and hips. Same with Zombieland. But on any red carpet she has always looked less curvy – whether at a higher weight, or now very thin. So, I’m not really sure about what is ‘natural’ for her. I think she is a bit underweight now, but not extremely so. She does look better a little heavier, but in those days she was still… Read more »

I liked her body better in the 06-07 pictures. Not a fan of the weird tan, though. Now she’s a little too thin for me – and plus, that weight loss certainly isn’t going to do anything for those curves she wants. But I definitely don’t think she looks like a 10-year-old boy either way, and she’s pretty regardless.

Well I won’t go as far to say she isn’t eating 🙂 I know better but I will say if you look at older photos of her, even as recent as Easy A she had more of a shape than she does now. What was that movie she was in with Anna? House Bunny I think, she had curves then. So I think it’s a choice. She is watching what she eats, working out more, something changed.

Sheesh, some of you are harsh. She says one thing and you automatically dislike her? Funny enough, in the end of the interview she says ‘None of my opinions are final!’ almost as if she knew that she’ll need some sort of insurance especially against those who knit pick through her words.

N
Guest

Guys, it’s called feigned humility.
She knows she lost weight; it’s obvious. And, she’s probably glad about it (who wouldn’t be?), but saying so outright would make her appear egoistic, so she pokes fun at herself as a subtle way of drawing positive attention to her body.

She’s eating much less, and looks to be around 100 lbs currently. That statement is a bit ridiculous. She’s caused herself to look like a 10 year old boy, as she says.. Years ago she looked incredibly womanly and had curves. Now she doesn’t, she doesnt even seem as happy as she used to. I don’t know if it’s Garfield.. and that he pressures her, or had different beauty standards than the men Emma used to date. Some women, actually many women will conform to please their boyfriend.

Oh how self loathing. I wonder if she realises the positives of her figure such as her great lean, long looking legs or the fact that having her body shape and being her current size probably makes her body one of the easiest to dress.
Also she definitely used the wrong word to describe her body. It didn’t make her sound very smart. She could have said non curvy, rectangular, ruler shaped ect
