Emma Stone jokingly called her friend Taylor Swift an a**hole at the 2024 Golden Globes.
On Sunday night, the 81st Golden Globes took place with 35-year-old actress Emma Stone scooping up the Best Actress Golden Globes Award for her role as Bella Baxter/Victoria Blessington in the 2023 comedy Poor Things.
After her win was announced, Stone received a standing ovation with her close friend Taylor Swift bursting into loud cheering.
Following the event, Emma spoke to the press with reporters asking her what she thought about Taylor’s reaction to her win.
“What an a**hole, am I right?” Stone jokingly replied.
To be clear, however, there’s no bad blood between Stone and Swift.
“I’ve known her for almost 20 years, so I’m very happy she was there. She was also nominated tonight, so I’m very happy she was there — but what an a**hole,” Stone quipped.
The hilarious interaction with the press comes shortly after Stone thanked her husband and her Poor Things crew for making it possible for her to receive the prestigious award.
“Thank you. Oh, boy. Thank you very much. This is amazing. Thank you. Dave, I have to start with you really quickly. I love you so much. Thank you for everything,” she said in her speech.
“Willem, Mark, Ramy, he made every day a joy and so did our credible cast oh, my god, there’s only 18 seconds left. The crew, incredible. Tony, this is our third time working together. Tony [McNamara], our writer. I love getting to say this dialogue, and I love getting to horrify you with my Australian accent. You’re the best, Tony. [Australian accent] I’m working on it all the time.
“Yorgos, I don’t know what I could say to you that I haven’t set already, that I will forever be grateful that we met, forever. And playing Bella was unbelievable.”
Concluding the speech, Stone also weighed in on the much-discussed genre of the 2023 film as she branded it as a rom-com.
“I think this is a rom-com. I see this as a rom-com, but in the sense that Bella falls in love with life itself, rather than a person, and she accepts the good and the bad in equal measure, and that really made me look at life differently,” the actress continued.
“Not all of it counts, and all of it is important. She has stayed with me deeply. So this means the world to me. Thank you so much, and, okay, bye. Thank you.”
