Emma is one of TIME magazine's 100 Most Influential People. Brie Larson wrote her tribute and it's so beautiful I legit teared up reading it:

Quote:
Emma Stone
By Brie Larson

I can't imagine film without Emma Stone. And I don't want to. As an actor, Emma is brave, devastating, hilarious, real, complex, charming and so much more. Her Oscar-winning performance in La La Land is just the latest example.



But Emma takes on significant roles off-screen as well. The selfless friend. The wise psychiatrist. The fearless leader. The coolest girl at the party. (She's even the intense soccer mom, cheering you on, no matter what, at the top of her lungs.) I know that she has played all of these roles in my life. And for that I'm lucky to call her my friend.

But what I really admire about Emma the person—as well as Emma the actor—is that she is never afraid to show us the most difficult thing you can show the world: yourself. What that entails is not always pretty. But with Emma, it is real, and it is beautiful.

Brie is on the cover of the newest issue of Vanity Fair. In it she talks about her friendship with Emma and Jennifer Lawrence and how their support helped her through her quick rise to fame and success:

Quote:
There was a time in Hollywood when offscreen rivalries between actresses—fueled by fragile egos and fierce competition for roles—were more dramatic than anything audiences witnessed on-screen. Think Bette Davis and Joan Crawford (the subject of Feud, an eight-part television series from auteur Ryan Murphy) or sisters Joan Fontaine and Olivia de Havilland, who had a vigilant rivalry for 60 years. But many of today’s young actresses have largely rejected the notion that one star’s gain is another’s loss. In particular, Larson, Emma Stone, and Jennifer Lawrence—all Oscar winners, all roughly the same age—encourage and support one another and celebrate their successes.

They have actor Woody Harrelson to thank for their friendship. He is the Pied Piper of these young women, having worked with Lawrence on The Hunger Games, Stone on Zombieland, and Larson on Rampart and again on The Glass Castle, and he thought they would all benefit from knowing one another. “It’s hard in this business, especially at that age, to experience celebrity and all the perks and all the temptations of celebrity,” Harrelson tells me. He says of the three actresses, “It’s incredible how they’ve navigated fame and stayed the people they are.”

Harrelson, who has been in the spotlight for more than three decades, going back to his eight-year run on Cheers, believes Stone, Lawrence, and Larson provide one another with support and the occasional dose of tough love. They form “a very tight-knit group who keep them honest and keep their ego in check,” Harrelson says. “You’re still just who you are, but everybody’s wanting to tell you, ‘You’re great, you’re great, you’re great!,’ which is fine. The second you start believing it is when you’re in trouble.”


Room (and her performance in it) particularly isolating. “I felt lonely and bad sometimes. I was embarrassed to keep talking about myself.” That was when her peers instinctively reached out to her.

“Emma wrote this beautiful e-mail out of nowhere, and then one day Jen sent me a text message after she saw Room, and we started talking,” Larson recalls. The note morphed into a text chain with Lena Dunham and Amy Schumer chiming in with words of support.

“That [group of friends] saved my life,” Larson says. “I was able to talk with them about everything that was going on in my life, and it was with people who had been through it before and are also hilarious. That support and acceptance was everything. I was home-schooled, so I didn’t have friends that had the same interests as me, and I found it to be absolutely incredible.”
