Emma Stone Gives Facebook (And FarmVille) the Boot

Emma Stone is among the precious few in young Hollywood who insists on keeping her private life private. She stays mum when asked about romance and family. She somehow manages to dodge tabloid headlines. If forced to muster up some sort of scandal, the best we can do is: The girl just broke off an unhealthy relationship with ... FarmVille.


Though it would have otherwise been tempting to lure you in with "Emma Is an Addict!" headlines, we like her too much to even play. In the her recent Vanity Fair interview, the "Superbad" sweetheart -- soon to star in, "Crazy, Stupid, Love," "The Help" and "The Amazing Spiderman" -- mentioned that she shut down her FB account after getting "addicted to FarmVille," a fact that didn't even get a whole sentence in the article but seems to have created a healthy buzz online. I guess enough people relate to it more than failed screen tests.

Those whose lives have been overtaken by Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or FarmVille can take a cue from Emma, getting out from behind a monitor and back into the real world. Check out these A THIN LINE posts about online security and sanity. Then there's the question of whether or not young kids should be allowed on Facebook in the first place. Remember the 12-year old kid who surprised his mom with a $1,400 FarmVille credit card charge? The students who launched Delete Day back in May had the right idea about having a healthy relationship with social media and keeping privacy a top priority online.

Emma Stone, meanwhile, keeps her sense of humor, thank goodness. The Vanity Fair story says she "jokes that her only vices are sugar, wine, and black-tar heroin." Nice try, Emma. You're still our favorite Hollywood good girl.
