An adorably awkward teenage girl with awesome parents who takes gossip about her sex life too far. The bitter daughter of a washed-up movie star trying to survive his desperate attempt to reinvent himself. A snarky survivor of a decidedly skewed zombie apocalypse. Comic-dom’s ultimate doomed girlfriend. Give any other actress these parts and you’d have a throwaway support mechanism for the male lead. But in Emma Stone’s hands, they become something wonderful, rich, nuanced and with a dangerous tendency to walk away with the whole damn movie in their teeth. On her 27th birthday, we salute the gal who’s made her mark in a very short time, and who promises to keep us watching for many years to come. Happy birthday to the one and only Emma Stone!
