"I know that when youíre a teenager, and even sometimes when youíre an adult, what sets you apart can sometimes feel like a burden and itís not. And a lot of the time, itís what makes you great."Emma Stone, born Emily Jean Stone on November 6, 1988 in Scottsdale, Arizona, is an American actress. She got into community theater at a very young age and was already in youth improv troupes as a pre-teen.

She competed on a VH-1 reality show "In Search For The Next Partridge Family" and won the part of the new Laurie Partridge. However this updated version of The Partridge Family never made it past the pilot. She next tried for the part of Claire in Heroes but lost out to Hayden Panettiere. She appeared in an episode of Lucky Louie as a teenage babysitter who wanted to give Louie a blowjob and the short-lived FOX series starring Nathan Fillion called Drive. In 2007 she made her feature film debut in the Judd Apatow produced comedy Superbad as Jules the girl Jonah Hill wanted to go out with.
