“In truth, if I have to say the truth, I think Emma is more talented than she can bear,” he says sincerely. “I feel she has the ability to do anything she puts her hand to. When she auditioned, I only knew her as a comedienne, from ‘Zombieland’ and ‘Superbad,’ but then we did the breakup scene and she just killed me, upset me, ruined me. And I knew then, oh boy, I’m in trouble, this girl’s got everything, she really does. If you spend any time with her, you find that out — being with her, around her, it’s a pretty addictive thing. She’s like the sun.”


“I will write a book one day about how I feel about every aspect of Emily Stone, she’s a full genius, or she has found her genius and she’s doing it so beautifully. I think everyone who works with her, everyone who brushes shoulders with her or even makes eye contact with her gets a shot of sunshine.”
