Many of them would go on to say she looks so thin she needs to “eat a hamburger” or seek some kind of professional help, and Emma was finally ready to address those who made those remarks.
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 actress sat down on USA Today where she not only shut down claims she’s anorexic, but she also admitted that she enjoys eating food and that she stays relatively healthy despite the long working hours.
“I firmly believe that nothing really affects you or can really bother you if you don’t already feel that way about yourself. I’ve seen a lot of comments that say, ‘Eat a sandwich’ or ‘She looks sick,’” Emma said.
Though she then went on to add that she doesn’t have an eating disorder, she did admit to
“looking at myself in the mirror being mean to myself,” which could signify that she was unhappy with her image and started to lose weight. It’s unclear as to what she really meant by that though.
She added: “I’m not sick. I eat sandwiches.”
Stone was later asked whether or not she feels the pressure of being a perfect role model and how it can affect her own personal life, to which she responded to by saying: “In no way is it my intention to be a bad example. That has been kind of bothering me lately. I’ve shamed myself for it. We shame each other online. We’re always too skinny or too fat or too tall or too short.”
“They’re just confirming this feeling I have about myself. I’m trying to figure my body out. It bothers me because I care so much about young girls. We’re shaming each other and we’re shaming ourselves, and it sucks.”
There’s no denying that Emma has been losing weight like crazy in the last few months, but I’m sure she’s now realized that since everyone is no picky and constantly commenting on it, she’ll get back to a more “healthier” look.
I’m sure her work schedule was heavily to blame for her plummeting weight-loss — the promotional tour for Spider-Man, shooting movies on the side and finding time to spend with boyfriend Andrew Garfield, and family members wouldn’t be easy for anyone.
