...grow up to be unintentional Internet porn stars.
Time was, a sweet young thing fell hard for the wrong guy and "things went too far," if he had a big mouth she got a bad rep in high school, maybe even 'round town.
That was then... this is now the digital age of the Internet (thank you, Al Gore!), and while guys could always spread rumors in the locker room, when there's colorful moving images complete with a soundtrack, it's kinda difficult for the girl to deny it... or even move to another town and start all over as a virgin.
Current case in point...
I for one am not panting like a hot warthog waiting to glimpse it if it does exist, but for her sake and that of her family, I'm hoping that the rumor is bogus and that the 24 year-old unnatural redhead is being pranked.
While looks can always be deceiving, the young woman above really does look the very picture of innocence, while the one at left in her more natural blonde state and the "slut red" lipstick, looks more like someone who might follow the paths of Paris Hilton, Kim Kardashian and Pamela Anderson.
(It could also rightfully be asked where would Hilton and Kardashian be today without their sex tapes being released?)
But for the love of whatever modesty counts for nowadays, let the Emma Stone rumors be just that, and parents have that talk with your sweet young things while they're still in their unspoiled state.
Taking inspiration from Stone's witty and successful 2010 comedy, "Easy A," itself inspired by Nathaniel Hawthorne's "The Scarlet Letter," this sex tape story might be nothing more than a publicity stunt for the January release of "Gangster Squad," the poster for which portrays Stone in a fashion very much at variance her earlier image as a burgeoning Julie Andrews.
Aye-up! That's Emma Stone bare-shouldered in a deep red dress flashing a lot of leg while playing a member of the Los Angeles demimonde of 60+ years ago.
...is that the rumored tape does exist, but that it remains unreleased.
