The other day it was widely reported that Emma Stone would play Mary Jane Watson opposite Scarfield in Marc Webb’s Spider-Man reboot. It was a little strange considering Emma Stone is pretty hot right now and Mary Jane isn’t even the main love interest in this one. But in the end, they both have red hair and that seemed like the natural order of things. Fast forward to today, Sony announced in an official press release that Stone will be playing the main love interest, Gwen Stacy (previously played by Bryce Howard), and that she’s actually a natural blonde. It’s like my whole life has been a lie.
Webb added, “The chemistry between Andrew [Scarfield] and Emma was stunning and made Emma the clear choice. At the heart of the story of Peter Parker is not only the amazing Spider-Man, but also an ordinary teenager who is wondering what he has to do to get the girl. Andrew and Emma will bring everything audiences expect to these roles, but also make them their own. Much to my surprise, it was fun to find out that our choice for Gwen (Emma) is also a natural blonde.” [via Deadline]
Anyone else think the way that was worded seems a little inappropriate for a press release? “Hi, Mr. Bigshot director speaking. I’d like to announce that this young starlet here just won the lead in my next movie. And in related news, I found he she was a natural blonde! Heh heh heh heh who wants to smell my finger?”
