Emma Stone is not trying to date Jonah Hill, despite a made-up report. One of the tabloids claims the actress is pursuing a romance with comedic actor on the set of their upcoming Netflix series, but there's no truth to it. Gossip Cop is told the two have been friends for years and their relationship remains platonic.
Hill and Stone, who previously co-starred in 2007's Superbad, are reuniting for the new Netflix show "Maniac," a dark comedy revolving around two patients in a mental institution who create fantasy worlds in their minds. OK!, however, is now claiming that the relationship between the co-stars isn't purely professional.
"New Couple Alert? Emma Stone & Jonah Hill Caught 'Flirting' On-Set Of Their New Show," reads a headline on the tabloid's website. A so-called "source" tells the magazine, "Emma's totally crushing on Jonah. They've been friends since Superbad and she'd really like to date him now." The outlet's questionable insider further contends that Stone is attracted to the comedic actor because she "has weird tastes in men."
This is all incorrect for a number of reasons. For starters, the "Maniac" co-stars are both currently in relationships. Stone been dating "Saturday Night Live" writer Dave McCary since mid-2017, while Hill and his girlfriend of around six months were recently spotted on vacation in Mexico. They are both committed to other people, not pursuing a romance with each other.
Regardless, Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us on background that there's no romance developing between Stone and Hill. It's worth noting the outlet's suspicious on-set tipster contends the two are "constantly huddled together over their coffees laughing and talking away." That's probably because they've been pals for years, despite the "insider" describing their interactions as "flirting."
Also, "Maniac" started filming in August of last year and wrapped in December, so it doesn't make much sense that this report is only emerging now and talking about interactions on set when production has been over for two months. The most logical explanation for this super late story is that it's poorly fabricated. Basically, the tabloids have a habit of creating nonexistent romances between co-stars, so it's not too surprising that Stone and Hill have been linked now that they're working together for a second time.
It's worth noting that when OK! isn't busy placing Stone into fictional romances, it throws her into fake feuds. Gossip Cop recently busted the outlet for falsely claiming Stone was fighting with Jennifer Lawrence. This latest article involving Hill is equally bogus.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
