Emma Stone is one of the most popular actresses in the world, which means she’s also a frequent target of false tabloids stories. Gossip Cop has debunked countless phony articles about the star’s dating life, career, Hollywood friendships and more. Here are five wrong rumors about Stone.
Last month, Gossip Cop called out Woman’s Day Australia for making up a ridiculous story about Stone being pregnant with Justin Theroux’s baby. The only evidence? The outlet contended that the actress had been spotted “wearing baggy clothes and seemingly trying to cover a baby bump.” Just a few weeks before the article was written, however, Stone attended The Band’s Visit on Broadway wearing tight jeans and a tucked-in shirt. She had nothing to hide. Meanwhile, Stone begins filming Zombieland 2 next January, so she’s obviously not putting her career on the backburner to have a baby. It’s also been well-established that the actress isn’t in a relationship with Theroux. Stone described Theroux “like my brother” in an interview with WWD in May.
Gossip Cop busted The Hollywood Gossip in June for falsely claiming that Stone was at war with Jennifer Aniston over Theroux. It was alleged that Aniston was “having trouble letting go” of her estranged husband and wasn’t happy about him moving on with the younger actress. Every aspect of the story was untrue. As noted above, there was never a romance between Stone and Theroux, which their mutual friend Jonathan Van Ness confirmed to E! News in June. That same month, People reported that Aniston is “happily moving on with her life.”
In April, Star wrongly reported that Stone and Margot Robbie were in the running to star in a female-led reboot of Indiana Jones. The story emerged simply because Steven Spielberg nodded his head in an interview when asked if he could see a woman taking over the franchise one day. That day won’t be anytime soon. Spielberg will be directing Harrison Ford in a fifth Indiana Jones movie, which starts shooting in the U.K. next year. The scenario about a female Indiana Jones reboot was completely hypothetical.
Gossip Cop busted OK! in February for falsely claiming that Stone was developing a romance with Jonah Hill on the set of their upcoming Netflix series “Maniac.” It was alleged that the two were flirting non-stop during the shoot and on their way to becoming a “new couple.” When the article was published, a source close to the situation assured us it wasn’t true, and time has proven that to be the case. Hill is currently dating stylist Gianna Santos, and the two have been spotted on several outings in New York City over the past month.
And finally, Gossip Cop shot down a September 2017 OK! story about Stone feuding with Jennifer Lawrence. The claim was solely based on the actresses sharing a somewhat awkward hug at the Toronto International Film Festival. The magazine wrongly interpreted the botched embrace as a sign of resentment and jealousy. In reality, the actresses are very close friends. Earlier this month, Lawrence interviewed Stone for Elle. And earlier this year, Stone and Lawrence sat down for a joint interview with W magazine, in which the actresses were described as “the quintessential Hollywood BFFs.”
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
