Did an elderly woman really mistake Emma Stone for Sharon Stone? The two actresses are 30 years apart, but an article in one of this week’s tabloids claims one old fan couldn’t tell the difference. Gossip Cop looked into the situation and we’ve exclusively learned the truth.

According to the National Enquirer, the La La Land star was recently approached for an autograph by a “loony-toony granny” during a break from shooting the upcoming Netflix series “Maniac” in Manhattan. The magazine then says the actress became confused after the woman said she loved her “very naughty” movie. A so-called “source” tells the outlet, “She thought long and hard, but recalling nothing salacious asked, ‘What exactly was so naughty?'” to which “granny” supposedly responded, “Don’t be coy, dear. That eye-popper where you cross, then uncross your legs.”

The alleged insider continues, in bizarrely unnatural language, “Emma spit out her coffee and split, too speechless to tell Time Warp Nana that she’s the La La Land Emma Stone, 29, not notorious Sharon Stone, 59, whose mind-blowing, show-all-shocker Basic Instinct peek-a-debuted back in 1992 when Emma was still a toddler.” Of course, no real human being speaks in such a manner.

Regardless of the fake quotes and absurd nature of this story, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to the younger Stone, who exclusively assures us the aforementioned incident never happened. It seems the Enquirer realized that two actresses share the same last name and decided to manufacture a report around them, because there’s no truth to any of this.

Unfortunately, Gossip Cop has had to correct many of the Enquirer’s bogus stories about the young actress. We recently called out the magazine for falsely claiming that Stone was quitting acting to embark on a music career. Gossip Cop also busted the tabloid for wrongly reporting that Stone was starring in La La Land on Broadway. This latest article is more fiction from the frequently discredited outlet.
