Let's face it: Emma Stone is one of the most lovable celebrities around. She's both talented and incredibly charismatic. People can't get enough of her. But as it turns out, something just happened that will make you appreciate her even more: The Oscar-winning actress just tackled a huge publicity blunder in the most amazing way possible.
On August 29, Fox Searchlight sent out an email to people in the entertainment industry, inviting them to the September premiere of #BattleOfTheSexes, a drama based on the real-life tennis match between Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carrell).
The invitation was sent to numerous heavy hitters, including agents, directors, producers and even musicians. The most notable names who received the invitation were Bryan Lourd, #JJAbrams, #DamienChazelle (La La Land), #EdgarWright (Baby Driver), Darren Aronofsky, Lauren Schuler Donner, Michael DeLuca and Adele Romanski.
There was only one problem with the massive invitation though: All email addresses were grouped under Cc (carbon copy) as opposed to Bcc (blind carbon copy), which meant that literally anyone who received the email could have access to the addresses of the aforementioned directors, agents, producers and musicians — which, for obvious reasons, they'd rather keep private.
Don't Worry Though, Emma Stone Made Things All Better
The situation was a disaster, but #EmmaStone stepped in to make things better. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the actress sent an email encouraging the people affected by the technical blunder to attend the Battle of the Sexes premiere:
"Hey, this is Emma, emailing from Cary's phone! Hope to see all of you accidentally publicly CC'D industry folk there."
Yep, classic Stone. She also sent this selfie alongside Cary Fukunaga (the director of her upcoming #Netflix film, Maniac) with both of them giving people a good thumbs up:
This situation reminds me of last May, when Stone was invited to prom by a young fan. The actress turned down the offer, but she did it in her signature, impossible-not-to-love style. Granted, these two scenarios are pretty different, but they do show that Stone has quite a talent to navigate through pressing situations.
Thankfully, her response to the email controversy worked, because #Fox Searchlight released a statement through THR, praising Stone's response as:
"Best reply-all ever!"
Unfortunately, putting her hilarious response aside, there are still problems to be dealt with. Sources told THR that the sensitive emails are now being passed around. Changing your address can be a real pain, so hopefully the people affected by it will find a solution soon enough.
