Emma Stone has accomplished a lot in the last 10 years, including taking home an Academy Award in 2017 for her starring role in La La Land. However, for the last six months, she’s taken a well-deserved break that’s made her realize a lot of her dreams are now “personal and less professional.”
In a candid new interview with Elle, Stone chatted with longtime friend Jennifer Lawrence about the joys of turning 30 and how she’s recently reassessed what’s most important to her.
“My twenties were a really interesting time, and there’s been a lot that has happened in these past 10 years, both positive and not as positive,” Stone said. “It’s weird how much turning 30 crystallizes your life. Instead of just living the dreams that I had in my youth and getting to do the job that I love to do and making friends and going through all of that, it’s like, now what do I actively want as an adult?”
Stone also opened up about how a lot of things changed (like her parents getting a divorce and the start of her career) in her mid-twenties, so she struggled to relate to the new version of the person she became.
However, one thing Stone knows for sure is her friendships mean the world to her.
Stone went on to say that loyalty is the most important thing in a friendship, and that she’s glad she’s found it in Lawrence.
Stone’s interview with Lawrence is the most refreshing thing you’ll read today. For starers, it shows that turning 30 is NBD. But it also makes us love their friendship so much more.
