If you’ve been keeping up with the Amazing Spider-Man 2 press tour, you have to admit that Emma Stone is killing it with her hilarious interviews, and simple, yet amazing outfits. Not to mention her relationship with Andrew Garfield is probably the cutest thing.

But besides being a fan of her acting, and her fashion; I have to admit she is a great role model for young women. It’s hard to find an actress who is not only talented, but hilarious and down-to-earth. And we see in magazines/articles when a star is rising the first thing we comment on is their appearance – whether she’s too thin, or she is “curvaceous.” We like to put stars under a microscope and literally analyze detail-by-detail their appearance. Lately Emma Stone has been criticized for her weight, but has graciously defended her body type and body image in general this month on

“It can be really challenging in today’s world for anyone—especially girls and women – to feel good about their bodies. No matter how things look from the outside, we can all be super critical of ourselves and of our image in the mirror. I’ve seen articles or comments that have addressed my weight, or ‘caving to pressure to be thin.’ Keeping weight on is a struggle for me—especially when I’m under stress, and especially as I’ve gotten older. That’s the way my genes have decided to go, and things will change as time goes on, as does everything.”

She continued to say, “I remind myself to be kind to myself, and as slightly ridiculous as it may sound, to treat myself in the same gentle way I want to treat a daughter of mine. It really helps.”

And on her critics and haters, “If what someone else says can easily derail you, it means your sense of self isn’t that firmly established in the first place. It’s an inside job. You’re beautiful and worthy and totally unique. People insult each other based on their own insecurities – even though it may feel personal, it really never is. Really. Seriously.”

Not only is she hilarious and talented, but she offers great advice! Treat yourself the way you would want to treat your daughter, and remember – you are your biggest critic!
