It's no surprise that Emma Stone landed on the "Who's Hot" list of January's W magazine. With every performance, the actress gives it her all – especially in that over-the-top sex scene in "Easy A."
“Simulation of sex is a real workout," says Stone, who was photographed for the magazine by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. "We must have done a hundred takes."
In "Easy A," 22-year-old Stone plays a pure high school student who unjustly develops a reputation as a naughty girl and then goes on to help her male classmates "lose their virginity" by claiming she had sex with them. One scene shows Stone and "Cougar Town" star Dan Byrd fully clothed, screaming, and jumping up and down on a bed at a house party as their fellow students listen outside the door.
The redhead got so out of breath shooting the not-so-steamy scene that she had an asthma attack. "There was an oxygen tank at one point. It took two days," Stone tells W. "Simulated sex is really fun, but it’s not easy.”
The January issue of W, which also features a cover of "Tron: Legacy" and "Country Strong" star Garrett Hedlund, arrives on newsstands December 21.
