Emma Stone and Timothee Chalamet are on the cover of Variety‘s Actors on Actors issue, out now.
Timothee, on Hollywood: “People want a mirror of the things they see — they want to see things shot in a way that doesn’t feel like the sheen of Hollywood is there, and they want to see stories that feel real. That’s what I think. What do you think?”
Emma, on Hollywood: “I totally disagree with you. We are on totally different pages, but whatever, it’s fine. Just kidding — you’re absolutely right. It’s an exciting time. There’s a lot of shift happening.”
Timothee, on The Favourite and Emma’s nudity scene: “It felt like The Favourite was a tone I hadn’t seen you in before. I saw an interview where you said it was a very conscious choice to have a scene with nudity because you felt like it was true to the script.”
Emma, on her The Favourite nudity scene: “I truly have never in my whole time working, which is not that long, I guess — it’s 12 or 13 years now — I have never, ever made a decision because I was like, ‘This is the kind of thing I need to do.’ Now I try to combine all three elements of the script, the character and the director, but at different times it’s either that I am dying to work with this director or the script is incredible, or the character. It’s always been about that and not about that it needs to be this big movie or I need to show my tits or whatever.”
