Poodles, the celebrity hair-watching corner of the internet EXPLODED with excitement when Emma Stone dyed her hair red last week. We don’t blame them. The girl looks completely different depending on her hair color. She’d make a great fugitive from the law. Or a superhero with a secret identity. Elle managed to sit her down during one of the periods when her rapidly shifting hair color happened to be blonde and shot her for some pictures.

On not being recognized as easily in public with her new look: “I mean, I haven’t been around very long. I can’t expect everyone to have seen The House Bunny. Oh God. I am having such waves of internal embarrassment, which now I’m admitting on a tape recorder. This is so one of the things I should keep in my head.”
On her obsession with Farmville: “I got to level 42, and I wasn’t doing anything else anymore, so I had to stop.”
On her career: “It’s so funny how different life could have been. I went to so many auditions. I remember my audition for Heroes. I went in right after Hayden Panettiere. Now here we are in this rented house. It feels like it just happened.”
On how her career has grown: “These past two years, I’ve stopped having to remind myself to be present, which has been the greatest gift. Because I know it’s so fleeting. I’ll kick my ass later on if I don’t enjoy it right now. But it does make you realize that so much of the joy of it is the journey. The struggle is such a lovely part of it.”
She’s charming; or at least, she fakes it well. She looks fresh-faced and cute as a blonde, but her look turns sultry as a redhead. Either way, because of the likeable personality and her own good looks, she usually takes great pictures. The problem with this editorial is the clothes do nothing for her. Actually, that’s not entirely true. The Prada and Versace look great and we love the Sergio Rossi booties. The Stella McCartney stuff is hit or miss, which is usually the case with her, but the Chloé leather overalls? Oh, dear.
And what’s with the really off-putting facial expressions in some of these shots? Why does she look like a pissed off crazy person? She’s cute and bubbly and clothes look great on her. How hard can it be?
