Valley actress Emma Stone is hot commodity in Hollywood

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX -- She had her humble beginnings here in the Valley, but actress Emma Stone, who still has family here in Phoenix, is everywhere these days.

Not only is she starring in much-anticipated "The Help," which opens Friday, she's also in "Crazy Stupid Love," which is in theaters now, and "Friends With Benefits," also in theaters now.

As if three movies weren't enough, Stone is on the cover of this month's Vanity Fair, as well.

She's already got drama and comedy covered. She can also add action to her resume with the recently wrapped "The Amazing Spider-Man." In that one, a franchise reboot, she plays Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker's first love before he started dating Mary-Jane Watson.

"I love stories that I can relate to and that feel human, that feel like stories I want to be a part of and I want to tell," Stone said. "It's so hard for me to put them under an umbrella. ... I don't think any movie is solely a drama or solely a comedy. Any movies that are that have been made, I don't usually enjoy."

"Crazy Stupid Love" and "Friends With Benefits" are both playing now.

"The Help" opens Friday.

"The Amazing Spider-Man" is due out next July.
