In 2007, Stone made her feature film debut in the teen comedy Superbad, alongside Jonah Hill and Michael Cera. The film, which was written and produced by Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow, was a box-office hit and received a strong critical response. A year later, Stone starred in the comedy The Rocker,
with Rainn Wilson and Christina Applegate; and The House Bunny, with fellow comedy actress Anna Faris.
Over the next few years, Stone emerged onto the Hollywood scene with roles in several big films, including Ghost of Girlfriends Past, Zombieland and Paper Man—all of which were released in 2009.
Stone's next big film came in 2010, with the lead role of Olive Penderghast in the teen comedy Easy A. The film, which was inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Scarlet Letter, surrounds the life of an innocent high school student whose reputation is jeopardized by rumors of promiscuity. Stone's witty and charming performance in the film earned her a Golden Globe nomination for best actress. She received critical praise again in 2011, as college graduate and aspiring writer Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan in The Help, a film based on Kathryn Stockett's novel of the same name. The film was nominated for both an Oscar and Golden Globe (best picture). That same year, Stone starred in the hit romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love, alongside Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell.
More recently, Stone was cast as Gwen Stacy, the 17-year-old love interest of Peter Parker in The Amazing Spider-Man, which was released in July 2012.
Outside of her acting roles, Stone is a two-time host of Saturday Night Live (2010 and 2011). She is also reportedly dating her Spider-Man co-star, Andrew Garfield.
