Emma Stone’s 10 greatest movie quotes, from ‘La La Land’ to ‘Zombieland’

One of the most endearing qualities of Emma Stone‘s public pronouncements is that she appears to not give a damn about how her statements will play to her public. She simply says what’s on her mind and in her heart, much like a few other actresses of her generation, most notably Jennifer Lawrence. But as Stone’s public persona began to take shape, it seems apparent that screenwriters began to write to that persona, resulting in a number of uninhibited lines of dialogue that Stone just knocked out of the park.

Now that she is a Golden Globe and SAG Awards winner for her most recent film “La La Land,” Stone might well be on her way to an Oscar at the young age of 28. As a reminder of funniest, wittiest, and most memorable lines said on screen, click through our photo gallery featuring Stone’s 10 greatest movie quotes in her relatively short film career.

Watch SAG winners backstage

LA LA LAND (2016)
“I think you should call it Seb’s because no one will come to a place called Chicken on a Stick.”

ALOHA (2015)
“You sold your soul so many times nobody’s buying anymore.”

BIRDMAN (2014)
“There’s a whole world out there where people fight to be relevant every day. And you act like it doesn’t even exist! Things are happening in a place that you willfully ignore, a place that has already forgotten you. I mean, who the fuck are you? You hate bloggers. You make fun of Twitter. You don’t even have a Facebook page. You’re the one who doesn’t exist. You’re doing this because you’re scared to death, like the rest of us, that you don’t matter. And you know what? You’re right. You don’t. It’s not important. You’re not important. Get used to it.”

Peter Parker: “This is the maintenance closet, Gwen. This is most cliched hiding place you could’ve chosen. This is the stupidest hiding place.”
Gwen Stacy: “I’m sorry, I didn’t take us to the Bahamas of hiding places.”

George Stacy: “Okay. I just thought I remembered somebody saying last week that her fantasy was to live in a chocolate house.”
Gwen Stacy: “Well, that’s impractical.”
[she shuts the door, then reopens it]
Gwen Stacy: “And fattening.”
[closes the door again]

THE HELP (2011)
“Oysters are a vehicle for crackers and ketchup.”

“Will you take off your shirt… Fuck! Seriously? It’s like you’re Photoshopped!”

“Maybe you should care a little bit less about work and a little bit more about the girl you’re dating because last time I checked, work doesn’t reassure you that liking a finger up your ass doesn’t make you gay.”

EASY A (2010)
“Due to his ‘condition,’ Micah was sent on an extended visit to his grandparents’ in Palatka, Florida. And if there’s one thing worse than chlamydia, it’s Florida.”

“You know, between you, me and ‘What About Bob?’… You’re actually kinda cute.”
