Emma Stone really had to put her acting skills to the test in her new film Easy A when she has to simulate sex to help a friend’s reputation. Unfortunately, Emma had some difficulties with the scene.
Olive (Emma) helps a male friend with his reputation at school by pretending to have crazy sexy with him at a house party.
Since Easy A is all about the spreading of rumors, MTV News asked Emma about a rumor they had heard about her.
Did she really have an asthma attack during her fake sex scene?
“Oh, for the love, I can’t even simulate sex without dying!” Emma said jokingly. “I had a little asthma attack, without any prior knowledge that I had asthma, during the scene where we had to jump up and down for hours and hours screaming and yelling on the bed. [It] was humiliating, because it was the second day of shooting.”
“Here’s what it’s going to be like the whole movie, as I’m breathing into an oxygen tank,” Emma added. “The crew was like, ‘She’s going to be a real blast. Wow. Amazing. A 20-year-old having an asthma attack.’ ”
But luckily that was the first and last scene Emma needed an oxygen tank for!

And check out the trailer for Easy A, which comes out this Friday!
