Emma Stone, star of the upcoming movie Crazy Stupid Love, had someone very special design her tattoo — legendary Beatles member Paul McCartney hooked her up with some original artwork for her ink.
Emma’s Zombieland costar Woody Harrelson introduced her to the musician in 2009, and she even got to attend a dinner party with him. Stone wrote the artist a letter later in the year, and he sent her a reply with three drawings of blackbird feet at the bottom. Emma and her family all loved the artwork so much that they all got tattooed with the tiny bird feet. The successful young actress said of the ink, “My dad and I have it on our left wrists and my mom and my brother have it on their right wrists. It’s pretty cool. I look at it every day. Every time he sees it, he touches it and at the BAFTAs, he kissed it. He’s the greatest guy.”
Justin Bieber has got to be so jealous — Emma Stone’s super cool story makes his own bird tattoo seem a little bit boring. Then again, he’s almost as big as Paul McCartney’s old band, so he’s probably fine with sporting ink that wasn’t designed by another celebrity. Plus Justin Bieber’s tattoo also has a cool story — his bird tattoo was a family tradition inspired by the book Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
Anyway, Emma Stone has definitely been living a charmed life. In addition to being pals with Paul McCartney, whom she and her Crazy Stupid Love costar Ryan Gosling recently hung out with backstage at one of his concerts, she’s taking over theaters this summer. Stone has a small part alongside Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake in this weekend’s Friends with Benefits (Emma plays a girl who dumps JT’s character), and she plays a writer that reveals the hardships experienced by Southern black maids of the 60s in The Help.
Emma also landed a role in next year’s The Amazing Spider-Man, in which she plays Gwen Stacy. That part also helped her land a new man in leading man Andrew Garfield.
So with famous friends, tons of movie opportunities, and a new man, can things possibly get better for Hollywood’s new favorite red-hot redhead? Things do seem to keep going up for her, so she’s got to be glad that Lindsay Lohan’s life became such a train wreck so that she could snag some of the parts Lilo probably would have been getting offered if she wasn’t so busy partying and stealing things.
