Deleted scenes from the theatrical version have surfaced online. Watch two of the scenes Emma shared with Ryan Gosling’s character, Sgt. Jerry Wooters below.
According to the Wrap, Emma is looking to make her broadway debut with the “Cabaret” revival. Anne Hathaway was previously attached to the role of Sally but the rumor was then turned down by her publicist. Nothing has been confirmed by Emma’s rep.
Emma Stone is in talks to make her Broadway debut in an upcoming revival of “Cabaret.”
The Wrap reports that an unnamed source said Stone is in talks to play Sally Bowles in the musical. Bowles previously has been played by many notable names including Liza Minnelli, Judi Dench and Natasha Richardson.
The new revival of the musical was reported last week by the New York Times, and will be staged at Studio 54 in early 2014 by the Roundabout Theater Company. Alan Cummings will reprise his role as the M.C. – he won a Tony Award for the same performance in 1998 during a Roundabout revival that also ran at Studio 54.
Roundabout has yet to officially confirm the revival – a spokesman declined to comment to the Times.
It was initially reported that Anne Hathaway would take on the role of Bowles, but that was denied by her publicist, who called the original Daily Mail report “completely false.”
“Cabaret” is based on the play “I Am a Camera” by John Van Druten, as well as stories of Christopher Isherwood. The musical features a book by Joe Masteroff and a score by John Kander and Fred Ebb. That score features well-known hits such as the title song, “Willkommen,” “Don’t Tell Mama” and “So What.”
The musical originally premiered on Broadway in 1966 and was directed by Harold Prince. That production ran for more than 1,100 performances. The 1998 revival featuring Cummings began previews in March 1998 and ran for 2,414 performances. The late Natasha Richards starred as Bowles in that production.
A film adaptation of “Cabaret” premiered in 1972 and starred Liza Minelli, Michael York and Joel Grey. The film was somewhat altered from the original stage version. It was nominated for ten Academy Awards in 1973, winning eight, including Best Actress for Minnelli and Best Director for Bob Fosse.
4. Emma Stone
If there was one celebrity we could swap wardrobes with in a heartbeat, it would be GLAMOUR cover girl, Emma. Fashion-forward without ever letting the designs wear her, you don’t get to be named Vogue’s best dressed woman without having the style chops to back it up.

Last week we got to have breakfast with Emma Stone to talk about Revlon’s new Lash Potion Mascara by Grow Luscious. Though this was the second time we got to chat with the star, our fangirl meter was still off the charts! This time around, we touched on her allergy-friendly beauty buys, her biggest beauty regret, her ideas on what is sexy, and what she might give her mom for Mother’s Day.
Q: Is there a specific way you like to apply your mascara?
A: I have no idea. Is that a thing? I’ve just been putting it on the regular. I’m not very good at this stuff. It’s much better when a makeup artist does it for me. But this stuff is just, it just kind of happens. It’s magic! Didn’t you see the commercial? It’s magic. I’ve been putting it on like a swoop.
Q: What’s your favorite Revlon product to play with?
A: The [Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain] crayons, I love those. And I love the [ColorStay] lipliner.
Q: What makeup do you think guys like?
A: I could care less. That has been one of the reasons that I wanted to be a part of Revlon was that I wanted to make sure that women are doing it for themselves.
Q: What is sexy to you, beauty wise?
A: I think it depends on the person because there are a lot of people I know that don’t even wear makeup that are incredibly sexy or wear a ton of makeup and are incredibly sexy or wear a little bit.
Q: What do you think is sexy on you?
A: I think it depends on how my mental state is that day. It depends on if I’m feeling happy and confident or not because I can put on a ton of makeup and not be feeling great that day and I definitely wouldn’t’ feel sexy. I think it just depends on how I’m feeling in here.
Q: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve done in the name of beauty?
A: You don’t want to know. I’ve not put pee on my face [laughs]. I think emu oil is kind of a weird concept. I’ve tried that and I’m allergic to it. That’s with everything. I’ve tried a lot of stuff, but I’m allergic to it all, so the only thing I can really vouch for that is kind of weird is that I put olive oil all over myself.
Q: Are there any beauty trends you regret?
A: All of them — I had acrylic nails for a long time. I had a lot of spray tans. I wore a lot of black eye shadow, like a lot [from the lash line to the brow and under the eye], for a long time. Which I’m basically doing today with blue, but it is what it is. I pretty much tried it all.
The untitled project will shoot in France this summer.
Emma Stone and Colin Firth will star in Woody Allen’s next, currently untitled comedy.
While the plot of the project is still very much under wraps, we do know that the film will be set in the South of France and shoot this summer.
The project will mark Allen’s second time shooting in France, and it will be his eighth film set in Europe.
The Gravier Productions film is produced by Allen’s longtime associates Letty Aronson and Stephen Tenenbaum.
Cinematographer Darius Khondji, production designer Anne Seibel and costume designer Sonia Grande, who all worked with Allen on Midnight in Paris and To Rome With Love, will collaborate again on this film.
Allen’s next film to hit theaters will be Blue Jasmine, opening July 26 via Sony Pictures Classics.
Stone, whose upcoming projects include The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Birdman, is repped by WME, Anonymous Content and Ziffren Brittenham. Firth, who will star in Genius and The Railway Man, is represented by CAA and Independent Talent.
UPDATED: A strong showing from “The Croods” assisted in the $134.6 million in revenue and $5.6 million in net income.
DreamWorks Animation reported $134.6 million in revenue and $5.6 million in net income in the most recent quarter, with overperformance in home video and a strong showing from The Croods encouraging investors to bid the stock 8 percent higher in afterhours trading.
In the previous period, DWA took an $87 million charge for the underperformance of Rise of the Guardians. Since then, the stock has risen 16 percent.
The company said during its previous earnings call that 400 layoffs were coming as DWA attempts to “right-size the whole enterprise,” as CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg put it. On Tuesday, Katzenberg told The Hollywood Reporter that some of the 400 worker are already gone while others have been notified that they’d be laid off soon. He also said that no further layoffs are expected.
The company has delayed the release of Mr. Peabody & Sherman, and Me & My Shadow has been yanked from the schedule indefinitely. Peabody is “moving along great,” Katzenberg said Tuesday and there is no update on Shadow.
During a conference call Tuesday, DWA executives — prompted by a Wall Street analyst — discussed Disney’s planned July 3 Johnny Depp release The Lone Ranger since it is a property licensed by Classic Media, a company DWA recently purchased.
DWA got a “small amount” up front for the film and gets profit participation on the backend as well as merchandise revenue. “So we’re rooting for them,” Katzenberg said.
The stock was up a few pennies during the regular session Tuesday to $19.28 but surged $1.62 in the after-hours session.
“This year is off to an outstanding start,” Katzenberg said in a release. “The Croods has reached a blockbuster level of nearly $480 million at the worldwide box office and is well on its way to becoming the No. 1 movie released during the first four months of 2013.”
The Croods was distributed by DWA’s new distribution partner, 20th Century Fox.
Home entertainment releases Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted contributed $22.8 million during the quarter, and Rise of the Guardians brought in $9.6 million. Puss in Boots contributed $7.5 million.
“The strength of our worldwide box office results from The Croods and overperformance in home video from both of our 2012 titles demonstrate success in DWA’s core business so far this year,” said COO Ann Daly.
Joanna Vargas, facialist to Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz, is giving skin consultations at Space NK inside Bloomingdale’s Century City this weekend.
Impressed with the unearthly glowing skin of Michelle Williams, Emma Stone, Rachel Weisz, Sofia Coppola and supermodel Karlie Kloss? Yeah, so are a lot of people. That’s why their go-to facialist — New York-based skin guru, Joanna Vargas — is doing a personal appearance at Space NK’s Bloomingdale’s Century City location in Los Angeles this weekend.
Vargas, who has a salon in midtown Manhattan, is known within her celeb and fashion industry circle for her Triple Crown facial, which uses micro currents and collagen to help de-puff and sculpt cheekbones and jawlines. She frequents L.A during awards season, giving her A-list clientele the signature facial as well as LED light treatments in order to plump up their skin to look dewy and youthful for those unforgiving red carpet flash bulbs.
“I think more and more of my actor clients find L.A. to be a great retreat from the madness of life and the hustle of NYC.” Vargas tells THR.
She has yet to open a salon on the west coast, but that doesn’t mean there’s a shortage in the demand for her services. This weekend, Vargas is spreading her love to the masses, performing her Triple Crown Facial on those who buy any of her products at Space NK ($65 – $95).

Interviewing celebrities can be the most nerve-wracking task. They’re always meticulously groomed, gorgeous, and well-spoken. And then there’s Emma Stone, who five minutes into our conversation over breakfast in Midtown Manhattan candidly told us about her real beauty dramas (rashes) and shopping splurges (anything Rag & Bone and Isabel Marant booties).
The primary reason we met with Stone was to discuss the fruits of her partnership with Revlon: The launch of a new mascara, Revlon Lash Potion, sure to be on everyone’s mind (and lashes) come summer. Read on to learn more about her love of beauty oils, which hair color she prefers, and when she feels the prettiest.
ELLE: Let’s talk about beauty…
Emma Stone: Yes! Let’s!
ELLE: What are some of your favorite beauty products?
ES: Josie Maran Argan Oil, olive oil…
ELLE: Do you put it all over your face?
ES: I put it all over my face. I put it all over my face five times a day, and it still isn’t working. [Laughs] Just kidding, I love you, Josie Maran.
ELLE: We’re recording this.
ES: Oh, I know. I know you are. [Laughs] I’m allergic to everything so I’m pretty limited. Anything that’s oil, I want it all over my entire body.
ELLE: How do you keep your hair healthy—with olive oil?
ES: I have no idea. My hair is so not healthy. I have clip-ins in right now, because it’s like, breaking off…but it’s nice of you to say that! I use Clairol Shimmer Lights, is that boring? It is. When it’s red I use Redken stuff for redheads. Obvs.
ELLE: What is your favorite hair color to wear?
ES: Probably red.
ELLE: Is that when you feel the prettiest?
ES: [In a joking voice] The prettiest? I only feel pretty when I’m confident, when I just worked out! [Laughs]. Isn’t that what everyone says? Do you mean with my hair?
ELLE: When do you think to yourself, “Emma, you are pretty?”
ES: Um, everyday. [Laughs] But genuinely, when I am happy. You know, when I look in the mirror and say to myself, “Oh my god, you are so happy!” Like, on my birthday, because everyone is telling me I’m pretty. [Laughs] I also like having red hair.
ELLE: What’s the one beauty product that you can’t live without?
ES: I can live without any beauty product.
ELLE: Don’t lie.
ES: You would still live! I need food, water, and shelter. And shoes.
ELLE: What about your eyebrows and eyelashes? You did just launch a new mascara.
ES: Okay, those! I’ve been filling [my eyebrows] in lately. And [I've been using] mascara.
ELLE: Well, you have to…
ES: Literally. Yes. I mean, I wear mascara every day. And any girl who says she doesn’t is lying!
You know it’s going to be a good day when you start out by interviewing all-around awesome chick Emma Stone.
The A-lister, and one of Revlon’s spokesmodels, couldn’t be more witty, pretty, and down to earth, exactly as you wished her to be.
During our chat, we talked about everything from her skincare routine to her favorite red carpet outfit. Here’s what she had to say.
Cosmo: Okay, so let’s just jump right in. What makeup do you think guys like on a girl?
Emma Stone: “I could care less. I think women should wear whatever makeup they want for themselves. Makeup should be fun.”
Cosmo: What’s your skincare routine?
ES: “I’m really allergic to a lot of stuff, so I can only use products with a single ingredient in it. I use a Burt’s Bees cleanser and sometimes I exfoliate with baking soda or brown sugar. I like experimenting. I love coconut oil, Josie Maran Argan Oil, and olive oil—I have a big bottle of it on my sink and I put it all over my face and smell like focaccia…and it’s really sexy [laughs].”
Cosmo: What do you think is sexy, beauty-wise?
ES: “I think it depends on how my mental state is that day and whether or not I’m feeling happy. I could wake up and put on a ton of makeup and still not be feeling great that day, so it varies.”
Cosmo: You’ve been on a ton of movie sets and worked with a slew of makeup artists. What are some tips you’ve taken away and use daily?
ES: “I have learned the importance of moisturizing because I have the driest skin on the planet. I also break out, so I have learned to use concealer. I just dot it on, but I’m not as great as applying it as the makeup artists. And I’ve learned to fill in my eyebrows—I use an eyeshadow and a little brush to do them, which I enjoy.”
Cosmo: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve tried in the name of beauty?
ES: “Oh, you don’t want to know…[laughs]. I think Emu Oil is a weird concept, I’ve tried that…and was allergic to it.”
Cosmo: What product do you turn to for a beauty boost?
ES: “I wear mascara most days, but I do put on a little makeup every day because it helps me feel put together. But yeah, mascara is essential.”
Cosmo: Do you have a favorite?
ES: “Yes, Revlon’s Lash Potion by Grow Luscious—it’s magic [laughs]! I swipe it on both my top and bottom lashes.”
Cosmo: What is your summer must-have beauty product?
ES: “Sunscreen. I have to wear it. Elta MD SPF 45 is really great, and I also have to use oil to help hydrate my skin. I don’t even remotely have oily skin—my skin doesn’t produce oil at all—so I have to replace it [by using a ton of oil on my skin].”
