Like many of you, we weren't quite sure how to react when Jim Carrey declared his undying love for Emma Stone via online video. Was it a sweet gesture, a funny joke -- or was it just creepy? Apparently, Emma wasn't nearly as baffled as we were! In a cover story for New York magazine, the Amazing Spider-Man actress swears she was nothing but pleased by Carrey's grand gesture.
"I was so flattered I can't even tell you. Honest!," says Stone, 23, when asked if the video weirded her out. "I was really flattered, I really was!"
In fact, the starlet says she'd actually been gushing about her love for Carrey, 50, at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards shortly before the video came out.
"Jason Sudeikis hosted -- I've known him since I was 18, we were in The Rocker together -- and we were all staying at the same hotel... There was like five of us, and we just went on this tangent of talking nice behind Jim Carrey's back," Stone recalls. "Jason was talking about how great [Carrey] was when he went to Saturday Night Live and how he was just like a comedic genius. Everyone was kind of weighing in, like 'He's the best. He's amazing.' And so when that happened, we all kind of talked to each other like, Weird, that was the guy we were lauding for, like, 30 minutes."
In his video (which you can watch below), Carrey told Stone that he would like to marry her and have "chubby little freckle-faced kids," while acknowledging that he was far too old for her.
Emma may have been flattered by Carrey's tribute, but she'd already found love with a more age-appropriate (and even cuter) man: Amazing Spider-Man costar Andrew Garfield. The 28-year-old British actor recently moved into her apartment while starring in Death of a Salesman on Broadway, and the pair has been frequently spotted around New York City.
"Not too shabby, eh?" Stone joked about her handsome boyfriend -- but she wouldn't go into any details.
"It's just not necessarily stuff I want the whole world to read and have an opportunity to comment on. I'm sorry, I hate to be that actress who says, 'I don't talk about my personal life,' eeshe," she explains. "I was such a fan as a kid, and there were so many people I wanted to know about. I understand it; I just can't bring myself to do it. I freak out having a Facebook."
In other words, she may appreciate Internet declarations of love -- but don't expect to see her making any herself!
