Emma Stone has admitted that she’d like it if we didn’t call her that – because it isn’t her name.

The Desire for Authenticity:

Actress Emily Stone, known professionally as Emma Stone, recently expressed her preference for people to use her birth name, Emily. 

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 35-year-old shared her desire to reclaim her original name, stating that she would “like to be Emily.”

Navigating Identity:

Stone revealed that she encourages those she works closely with to address her as Emily once she gets to know them. This shift in preference reflects her desire for authenticity and a connection to her true self.

The Origin of “Emma”:

Stone explained that she adopted the name Emma due to practical reasons – the name Emily was already in use by another actor in her union. However, she confessed that she experienced a moment of realization a couple of years ago, prompting her to reconsider using her real first name.

Acknowledging Adjustments:

Stone acknowledged the challenges of transitioning back to her birth name, especially in professional settings. She shared that her co-star Nathan Fielder uses the nickname “Em,” which serves as a bridge between her past and present identities.

Inspired by Baby Spice:

In a previous interview in 2018, Stone disclosed that her choice of the name Emma was influenced by her admiration for Baby Spice, also known as Emma Bunton, from the Spice Girls.

A Common Experience:

Stone’s decision to reclaim her birth name resonates with other performers who have faced similar challenges. Actors like David Tennant and Elizabeth Banks have changed their names to distinguish themselves from others in the industry.

Embracing Change:

The process of choosing a stage name reflects the complexity of identity and the need to navigate the entertainment industry’s demands. 

Stone’s journey highlights the importance of authenticity and the power of embracing one’s true self, even in the face of professional pressures.
