While I usually obsess over everything that Emma Stone does, wears and says, her recent interview with Refinery29.com confused me a little bit. Mostly because I only have a 9th grade understanding of biology and anything that conflicts with what I learned throws me for a loop.
Switching gears yet again, how do you stay healthy? Do you have a workout regimen?
“Well, I was kind of born with a 10-year-old boy’s body. For years, I was like, ‘Please let me grow some kind of curvature!’ But it did not happen. So…this is my natural form for the most part. I’m sure that will change as the years go on. But, yeah, I have a boy body. I work out when I’m in a movie…like on Spider-Man, they get you a trainer, which is awesome, so then I do it. But, if there isn’t someone yelling in my face then ‘m just not into it. Pilates is the one thing that makes me happy while I’m doing it. But other than that, it puts me in a bad mood to lift stuff over my head. I hate it. But it is important to do it for my health, so I need to do it more
Born with a 10-year-old boy’s body? That makes absolutely no sense. First of all, let’s all say “ouch!” on behalf of her mother. Then let’s imagine an infant Emma Stone being trapped in the body of a 10-year-old boy. Sounds like the plot of an early ’00s Disney movie. In fact, I should take the rest of the day off and write it. I think I have something here. Can someone see if Ryan Merriman is still available to do TV movies?
While the science behind what she’s saying makes no sense, her feelings toward working out completely align with my feelings. While I know I should enjoy moving my body and physically exerting myself, I don’t. I’m all for a brisk walk. But anything more feels like medieval torture and I simply can’t take it. It’s to the point where I stopped buying orange juice at the grocery store since carrying it home just reminds me of the days when my ancestors carried tons of stones on their backs and built the pyramids.The memories are too painful. And so is the carrying. I’m really that weak. It borders on disgusting.
But now that I know Emma Stone resents working out as much as I do, I feel much better about my completely lethargic lifestyle.
And this is why I love her. She’s the ultimate enabler when it comes to me putting off working out for one more day.
