The Help‘s Emma Stone learned a major beauty secret from her role as Skeeter in the current hit film, and she shares it with fans and movie-goers. The revelation is simple: confidence. Unfortunately, that’s easier to say than to acquire. People magazine reports on an interview with the young starlet.
“Confidence is the only key,” says Emma Stone. “I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ‘beautiful’ Â— not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves.” Books and movies show this kind of evolution all the time, in story after story. It’s as old as time, but always fresh and new. This truth is something every woman needs to learn for herself, and some people need a little help.
The growth of Emma Stone’s character in the film is a perfect illustration. Skeeter is unsure of herself at the start, but the family maid Constantine helps her to see her own inner beauty. Skeeter’s hairÂ—actually two different wigsÂ—is used as a symbol of personal growth, as it becomes longer and more natural as the film progresses. Ok, she adds high heels and more makeup, too. It’s the get-up-and-start that counts. Skeeter was “lucky,” Emma Stone says, to have Constantine, who “reminded her that she was beautiful and smart and could choose her life.”
Emma Stone used her own confidence to get where she isÂ—starring in a hit movie. Fans will have to take it from there.
