Emma Stone is on the cover of the new Vanity Fair, and it seems hard to believe in hindsight, but she says her lowest point in Hollywood was losing a role to Hayden Panettiere.
Emma Stone tells Vanity Fairwriter Alexandra Wolfe … that she still remembers what she considers her hardest Hollywood moment, an audition for NBC’s Heroes. “I could hear that, in the other room, a girl had just gone in and they were saying, ‘You are our pick … On a scale of 1 to 10 you’re an 11,’” Stone recalls, before Hayden Panettiere—who ended up with the role of Claire Bennet—walked out of the room. “I went home and just had this meltdown,” Stone says, calling the experience “rock bottom.”
I sure am glad that Vanity Fair made a huge point of telling me their reporters name over and over and over again. It would have ruined the whole story had I not known.
