Emma Stone Tells the Hilarious Story of Why She Changed Her Name

As fashion girls, we've always appreciated Emma Stone for her effortless off-duty wardrobe full of polished basics. As everyday people, we are also immensely appreciative of both her work as an actress as well as her down-to-earth attitude in real life. So, for her latest interview with W magazine, we were hardly surprised that her story about changing her name twice made us laugh out loud.

Apparently, when she was 16, she was told there was already another Emily Stone at the Screen Actors Guild. She thought about being Emily J. Stone but instead settled on becoming known as Riley Stone. However, when she realized later on that she almost never replied to the name when called on set, she said, "Oh, I'm not Riley. I can't be Riley." She explained further, "So then I changed it to Emma because, you know, it's closer to Emily, but most people call me 'M,' that know me well." Well, we love her no matter what name she goes by.
