Emma Stone Says She’ll Never Joke About Taylor Swift Again After Golden Globes ‘A–hole’ Quip

Mr. Nimbus | 02/21/2024

As Taylor Swift once said, this is why we can’t have nice things. Weeks after Emma Stone went viral for lovingly joking that the pop star was an “a–hole” for giving her a standing ovation at the 2024 Golden Globes, the actress has now said that she’s done teasing her longtime friend in public.

“I definitely won’t make a joke like that again,” she told Variety for her Wednesday (Feb. 21) cover story with Poor Things director Yorgos Lanthimos. “I saw headlines that really pulled it out of context.”

Pointing at herself, Stone added, “What a dope.”

The interview follows the La La Land star’s best actress win at this year’s Globes for her portrayal of Bella Baxter in Poor Things. At the Jan. 7 ceremony, Swift stood up and excitedly cheered for Stone as she accepted the honors.

While speaking to press later that night, Stone was asked about the “Anti-Hero” singer’s applause. “What an a–hole, am I right?” she responded, earning laughs from Lanthimos and her costars, Mark Ruffalo, Willem Dafoe and Ramy Youssef.

“I’ve known her for almost 20 years, so I was very happy she was there,” Stone added at the time. “She was also nominated tonight, which was wonderful, and, um, yes, what an a–hole!”

The “Karma” musician was in the running for best cinematic and box office achievement that night, thanks to her blockbuster Eras Tour concert film; however, Swift lost out to Greta Gerwig’s Barbie. The pop superstar’s three-hour production is one that Stone saw live three times last year, a favor the 14-time Grammy winner returned by attending the New York City premiere of Poor Things in December.

Over the summer, Stone became a central figure in Swiftian lore after the singer-songwriter released a “From the Vault” track titled “When Emma Falls in Love” as part of her July LP Speak Now (Taylor’s Version). Fans were quick to speculate that the “Emma” in question was the Amazing Spider-Man actress, something Stone neither confirmed nor denied when asked about the rumors at the Poor Things premiere.

At the time, she simply said, “You would have to ask her.”
