Emma Stone: 'Pale Genes Blighted My Childhood'
Hollywood star reveals she wanted to tan like pals when she was young...
Emma Stone has declared that her "pale genes" meant she didn't fit in with the tanned in-crowd when she was growing up.
Speaking to Company magazine, the Hollywood starlet discussed her fashion and beauty preferences and opened up a little about her childhood.
"I can't help it. When I was younger, I'd try really hard to tan (I'm from Arizona, which is really sunny and everyone there is really tanned) so that I wasn't the weirdo pale kid.
"I wanted to be part of the cool group, but I learned pretty early on that all I do is burn. So then I did spray tans, which unfortunately made me look like I had leprosy or I had just dug through mud."
And the 24-year-old also discussed her role as a cavegirl in new animated film The Croods.
"We've been making it for the last three years. The recording was really fun – they have this little camera filming you, and they animate the character according to your movements, so you can really go for it and be a human cartoon.
"I've been a human cartoon since I was born anyway so I might as well animate it. My husky Emma Stone trademark voice remains too. My natural man voice has finally worked for me!"
