Emma Stone is one of those stars who even if you don’t know a lot about her, you still know that she’s awesome.  She is rising up as one of Hollywood’s young leading ladies, and has come a long way since her Superbad days.  To celebrate Emma’s 25th birthday, we’ve put together a list of some of Emma’s funniest and most inspirational quotes, and paired them with some of our favorite looks Emma has sported on the red carpet.

“I’m not there to be the token sexy girl.  I don’t know that I would ever be able to pull that off.  It’s nice that those characters I’ve played feel uncomfortable as well because it’s so much more realistic.”

I beg to differ Emma Stone, I think you can pull it off just fine.

“I have dreams of being a producer, being behind a camera, eating seven tacos for every meal, and making movies that affect people in the way they affect me.  I don’t even need to be in them.”

I know this is all about Emma, but I just couldn’t resist throwing in a casual couples pic!  Emma Stone, you would probably be a great producer, but please don’t stop being in the movies! Please!

“You’re only human. You live once and life is wonderful, so eat the damned red velvet cupcake.”

Now that’s diet advice I want to listen to.  In this dress she wore to the Met Ball in 2012 she sort of looks like a red velvet cupcake, in the best way a person can look like a cupcake.

“I always thought it’s way more important to be funny or to be honest than to look any certain way”

This is just too great;  the awesomeness speaks for itself.

“Blondes do have more fun.  But sometimes I look in the mirror and still feel like I’m wearing a wig.”

From someone who has at some point been a blonde, brunette, and a redhead, I think we need to take Emma’s word on this one – blondes have more fun, and so are pretty much better.  I love Emma’s red locks, but I’m happy to have her on team blonde.

“I always think it’s funny when people feel they have to be delicate with me. On Superbad, people would say absolutely anything every single day.  After that, nothing could faze me.”

I don’t know, she looks pretty innocent here.  Baby Emma Stone was so adorable.

“I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself.”

It’s always refreshing to see mega stars who are comfortable to be seen in something other than a Gucci gown, and can rock the style of the average non movie star.

“What sets you apart can feel like a burden, but it’s not.”

Smart, funny, and beautiful.  Emma Stone shows a great balance, and is down to earth.  She really is an inspiration and role model.  Happy Birthday, Emma!
