Emma Stone: Being ‘Cruella’ in new film was fun


Los Angeles, Oct 12 (IANS) Actress Emma Stone says her take on the infamous villain in the upcoming “Cruella” movie will be very distinctive.

Set in 1970, Disney’s upcoming live-action “Cruella” will delve into the backstory of “101 Dalmatians” villain Cruella de Vil, and try to find an answer to the question — “How did she get this way?”

There will be comparisons with Glenn Close’s avatar as the iconic Cruella de Vil in 1996’s “101 Dalmatians”, but Stone says the time-line of both the movies is different.


“It comes long before her story. It’s a different ball game,” quoted Stone as saying.

Earlier this year, Stone stunned fans with a punk-rock inspired interpretation of the character when Disney released an image from the upcoming prequel at the D23 Expo in August.


In the first look of the live-action project, Stone as Cruella is seen with short permed hair with de Vil’s signature black and white colour-blocked hairstyle. She is wearing a black leather checkered jacket, and is holding onto three leashes attached to three dalmatians.

“Well, I saw myself in the mirror getting ready, so I wasn’t that shocked,” Stone said of the first look.


“It’s been really fun. We are in the middle of it right now so it’s still sort of hard to even talk about it. It’s been really, really cool,” she added.

Stone is also excited about the long-awaited sequel “Zombieland: Double Tap”, in which she is reuniting with her fellow zombie apocalypse survivors Abigail Breslin, Jesse Eisenberg and Woody Harrelson after ten years.

“It’s so much fun to be with all of these people again. It’s such a joy and such a blast. It just felt like old times again, but everybody’s had all these great life experiences and there was so much more to share. It was really special,” she said.
