Emma Stone Bakes Away Anxiety

For Emma Stone, comedy and baking keep the anxiety away

Emma Stone hasn’t always been the hilarious, laid-back, and cool chick we often see on the big screen. In fact, the 23-year-old actress admits to have been a "really anxious kid" and would alleviate her anxiety through comedy. "It gave me a sense of purpose. I wanted to make people laugh," she stated in Vogue’s July cover interview.

More recently, to calm her nerves while filming The Amazing Spiderman, Stone has taken on baking — and copious amounts of it. She states, "I think I felt really out of control of my surroundings. I was just baking all the time. There were stacks of things in the kitchen that nobody could possibly go through. It seemed like it made me feel, if I put these in, I'll know what the outcome is. I was over-baking." Stone isn’t the only one who benefitted from her anxiety baking; luckily the crew of The Amazing Spiderman, including boyfriend and co-star Andrew Garfield, were stocked with baked goods for days!
