There’s a good reason Emma Stone feels like your famous BFF. It’s because, despite the fact that she’s super successful, she’s still extremely grounded. During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Emma Stone opened up about how she keeps so level-headed in such a crazy industry.

Emma often thinks about how to keep challenging herself.

She chooses roles that are creatively fulfilling. And she knows how to keep her personal life private. Plus, she’s got an excellent perspective on exactly who she is and what she wants out of this industry. So it’s no huge surprise that some of that wisdom was shared during her interview.

Right now, Emma is spending a ton of time in the spotlight. That’s largely thanks to the massive success of her magical movie, La La Land. But part of what makes her so down-to-earth is her ability to focus on the here and now.

When asked about all the awards she’s been nominated for and her hopes for the future, Emma responded perfectly.

Her answer is both playfully self-deprecating and packed with a serious lesson.

Rather than worry about the future, she just wants to enjoy the moment. And isn’t that really what we all should be doing?

Emma also chooses to live in New York in order to help herself keep perspective.

It’s so inspiring to see such a huge star be able to stay so grounded. This awesome advice and tons more amazing tidbits can be found in her full Rolling Stone interview.
