In her latest role, Emma Stone just can’t escape the wrath of the rumor mill. In real life, the actress, 21, is still waiting for her tabloid debut.
“I haven’t really heard any [rumors about me], but I keep encouraging people to please make some up,” she tells PEOPLE. “They are always so much better than the truth.”
In Easy A, which arrives in theaters on Friday, Stone showcases her natural comedic chops as a pretend-promiscuous teen whose string of faux sexual conquests is the talk of the town. But this actress has a fantasy scandal of her own: “That Charlie Chaplin came back to life,” she says, “and he’s letting me play his love interest in his new movie.”
