One would assume Emma Stone is used to being as famous as she is. One would also assume that Emma Stone is able to handle the paparazzi like a pro, but that’s not the case! During a recent interview with Glamour magazine, Emma opened up about her pap-phobia.
According to her, “It’s weird in Los Angeles [photographers are] hiding out everywhere. The hardest thing is that it makes me act like an a-hole because I now have this weird level of paranoia that I never had before.” She added, “It feels like having a private investigator on you or something. You find yourself walking around holding your head up like you’re looking in the mirror – and your friends are wondering what’s wrong with you. Then I feel like a jerk because half the time there’s nobody there… still, I really don’t want to be caught with a burger all over my face.”
And just like that, we scream laughed until dawn. We don’t know how we would handle being chased by crazed photographers all day, so big-ups to Emma for taking it in her stride.
Chris Guerra, a young celebrity photographer, was recently killed in a Justin Bieber car chase. His death caused the entire Hollywood to sit up and pay attention to the issue of paparazzi safety. Everyone in this line of work – especially paparazzi – are at risk of injury and/or death, so perhaps stricter laws could be put in place to protect our favorite celebrities and those working to bring you every image you ever see of Emma Stone et al.
