VULTURE: Emma and Andrew in 100 most valuable stars
Emma Stone (position: 19)
The Spunky Girl Next Door
She’s smart, funny, and relatable, but don’t limit her to best-friend roles.
Ever since Superbad, Emma Stone’s big eyes, raspy chortle, and lovable, quirky spunk made her the girl you wanted to see in as many scenes as possible. (And on as many magazine covers as possible. She’s graced nine of the major titles in five years, from New York to Vogue.) Recall her kooked-out road warrior in Zombieland, her good-girl-going-bad in Easy A (in which she also sang, revealing a pretty impressive set of pipes). MORE »
Andrew Garfield (position: 84)
The British-American actor finds success onstage, on-screen, and on spider webs.
Andrew Garfield is the rare young superhero-movie star whose origin story includes real acting. Before scoring the title role in this summer’s wildly premature, huge-anyway Spider-Man reboot, the half-British Garfield impressed critics and premium directors with compelling performances in small movies like Boy A (as a newly released ex-con), Lions for Lambs (as a spoiled rich kid), The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus (as a young magician), and Never Let Me Go (as a clone created for organ harvesting). In 2010, he graduated to Person You May Know status in David Fincher’s The Social Network, for which he earned BAFTA and Golden Globe nominations as a screwed-over Facebook co-founder. MORE »
