Changing course! New mom Emma Stone is mapping out a brave new future for herself in Hollywood.
According to an OK! insider, the Oscar winner is "skipping out on lucrative movie roles" so she can focus on family and work with her filmmaker husband, Dave McCary.
Stone, 32 — who tied the knot with the former SNL segment director, 35, last fall and gave birth to their first child, a girl, in March — recently pulled out of the upcoming period drama Babylon opposite Brad Pitt.
"She has a five-year plan to produce projects with Dave instead of starring in other people's films or franchise fare," the insider says, adding that Cruella, which comes out in May, could be the star's last blockbuster for quite some time. "Emma is betting this next crucial phase of her career on Dave. She's excited about the future — both as a parent and as half of the next great filmmaking team."
The couple is known to be highly private and remained on the DL during Stone's pregnancy. It wasn't until the actress was spotted on December 30 with a baby bump that the big news was eventually confirmed.
But the new pair of parents couldn't be happier, sources previously dished to OK!. "They're really enjoying this special time in their lives," the source said amid the couple's pregnancy period.
While McCary was working on "putting the crib together and baby proofing their house in L.A.," Stone made sure to take "good care of herself, eating right and doing her prenatal exercises," the source said at the time. "Mostly, Emma stays close to home, cooks and watches movies with Dave. She also enjoys walks around her neighborhood because getting outdoors in the fresh air does wonders too."
The lovebirds secretly tied the knot during a private ceremony last September. They were supposed to wed last winter; however, the Hollywood couple had to postpone their plans due to safety concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.
