Emma Stone on the Tonight Show
Stone previously revealed to host Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show that she had changed her name from Emily to Emma and it may be influenced by her favorite spice girl. She said, “Growing up, I was super blonde and my real name is Emily, but I wanted to be called Emma because of Baby Spice, and guess what? Now I am.”
“So that’s pretty messed up,” she laughed. “It wasn’t necessarily because of her. But, yes, in second grade did I go up to the teacher on the first day and ask her to call me Emma? Yes, I did. Was it because of Emma Lee Bunton from the Spice Girls? Yes, it was.” She also shared that she planned on going to the reunion tour, “I will be going to that somehow.”
Stone has a major fangirl moment
The La La Land star was brought to tears during an interview to promote The Amazing Spider-Man 2 when the co-hosts told her that Mel B couldn’t come to the interview. “Wait, Mel B, could have been here?” she reacted to the news. “I’m gonna cry.”
As soon as a video played of Mel B aka Scary Spice leaving a message for the actress Emma gushed “Oh my god, is Mel B talking to me?” she sobbed. “Oh my god, I’m so excited. I’m legitimately crying. I’m the biggest Spice Girls fan ever.”
Mel B was well aware of Stone’s love for Emma Bunton as she said, “First of all, I want to say I absolutely adore you, I love you. And I want to say thank you for being such a Spice Girl fan. But my question to you is, why did you like Baby Spice and not me more?”
