Avid moviegoers are finding that there's no escaping actress Emma Stone this summer. So far, Stone has showed up in three Hollywood films nearly one week after another -- Friends With Benefits (July 22), Crazy Stupid Love (July 29), and The Help, which came out two days ago. At the same time though, Stone is learning there's no escape from talking about her old love, FarmVille.
Stone first revealed her "obsession'" in an interview with women's fashion magazine ELLE in June. So yesterday, when Late Night host Jimmy Fallon asked the actress a fairly innocent question, "Are you on Facebook?", we knew what to expect.
"It's a fake farm, but it doesn't feel fake, Jimmy," declares Stone. What we didn't expect is that Fallon was just as "obsessed" with playing The Sims "a long time ago" himself. The host is probably referring to an offline PC version of The Sims, not the shiny new Facebook version released earlier this week. Which is to say, Fallon should totally give The Sims Social a spin (once Electronic Arts gets it back up). He's sure to love it.
Finally, Emma Stone isn't the only FarmVille playing celebrity we've run across. Rumors have been around that Wyclef Jean, Annalynne McCord, Avril Lavigne, Ellen, and Rachel Ray all farm on FarmVille. Actress Mila Kunis outed herself as FarmVille obsessed last year. Finally, everyone must've heard of Lady Gaga's GagaVille by now, which was one of the farthest-reaching marketing stunts ever seen in a Facebook game.
