Emma Stone Almost Known as Riley Stone
Emma Stone was seen leaving Andy LeCompte salon in West Hollywood, Calif. on Wednesday (August 29). The star recently revealed some interesting news to Interview magazine: that she was almost going to be known as Riley Stone (which is a great name, if you ask me)!
The 23-year-old, whose real name is Emily Stone, reveals the mini crisis she went through when trying to pick a stage name, after her real name was already taken in the Hollywood world. “I was 16 at the time, and I hadn’t done anything yet, so I was like, ‘I can be whatever I want to be. What name do I want to have?’” she shared.
“So I went though a list of names and picked Riley,” she added. “But then I had an identity crisis pretty much right after because I had a guest part on Malcolm in the Middle and everyone kept on yelling, ‘Riley!’ and I didn’t know who they were talking to. So I had to change my professional name to Emma, which my mom always called me.”
