Die-hard Spice Girls fan Emma Stone, real name Emily Jean Stone, was forced to pick a stage name when she signed up for the Screen Actors Guild as a teenager, choosing ‘Emma’ after her favourite Spice Girl, Emma 'Baby Spice' Bunton.
The actress told the talk show host how she came to settle on 'Emma’ from Emily, “Growing up, I was super blonde, and my real name is Emily, but I wanted to be called Emma because of Baby Spice. And guess what? Now I am.”
No news yet as to whether this revelation will score the Spice Girls fan a ticket to their upcoming reunion tour, but we’d say she’s got a pretty good shot.
