Emma Stone Is the Lindsay Lohan That Could Have Been
Watching the new clip of Emma Stone playing bedroom rockstar in her upcoming film Easy A, we couldn’t help be reminded of another red-haired, raspy voiced young starlet who oozed charm and spunk. Not to take anything way from the movie-star-in-the-making Stone, but this clip wreaks of Lindsay Lohan circa Mean Girls/Freaky Friday. Even the plot of Easy A (which also stars Penn Badgley, Amanda Bynes, Patricia Clarkson, and Stanley Tucci), sounds like Mean Girls redux: “A clean-cut high school student relies on the school’s rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing.” Okay, then.
Before Lohan destroyed her career with the need to do “serious work” (and, you know, drug addiction), then the role of the slightly dippy girl you love to root for, would have been hers to keep. Come to think of it, Emma Stone isn’t so much the Lindsay Lohan that could have been—she’s the Lindsay Lohan that was.
