Emma Stone does not like to watch herself on the big screen, an insecurity she shares with her The Help co-star Octavia Spencer. So when First Lady Michelle Obama asked the two actresses to stay for a screening of their new film at the White House, it was a bit of an uncomfortable night!
But Emma explained last night on Late Show With David Letterman that when the first lady of the United States invites you to join her for a screening of your movie, saying no is just not an option!
But leave it to Hollywood’s latest “it” girl to make a joke about the situation: She told Dave that one thing that would have eased her discomfort was an adult beverage!
“Maybe for the future, alcohol would be nice, Mrs. Obama,” Emma said directly into the camera, showing off her fabulous comedy chops!
“Would it kill you to open up the bar?” host David Letterman added, egging her on.
