Emma Stone: I haven’t eaten chocolate cake since The Help

*Spoiler alert: If you haven't read the book and don't want to know what happens in the film look away now*


It's usually not that surprising to hear that a Hollywood actress is refraining from eating calorific treats.

But Emma Stone has a very different reason for her ban on chocolate cake.

Emma Stone says she hasn't eaten chocolate cake since filming The Help

Since starring in hit new movie The Help (which contains a scene which involves both chocolate cake and, err, poo) - she told us she hasn't been able to stomach the stuff.

The 22-year-old exclusively told omg!: "I have not eaten chocolate pie since the day they shot that movie.

"That scene haunted me. It makes you never wanna eat chocolate cake again."

Us too Emma.

The actress-of-the-moment plays strong female character Skeeter in the movie and she told us that she felt an immense amount of pressure following the success of the book by Kathryn Stockett.

She said: "It's my mum's favourite book and when she found out I was playing Skeeter she had a lot to say.

"It's pressure that I had never experienced before because usually people haven't read the thing you're working on."

And she revealed the intensity of filming in Mississippi, saying: "The actual experience of being there and being steeped in that culture was emotional.

"This was only 50 years ago so there's a still a lot of remnants around. You definitely feel the history.

"The invisibility of these women and Skeeter feeling like a social outcast because she didn't want to be married with children at 23.

And although she confessed to loving the 1960s costumes, Emma admitted they didn't feel as good as they looked.

She told omg!: "The wardrobe was fun but those girdles and pantihose and the bras were so constricting. It was bizarre and really hot."
