Emma Stone won best leading actress for her role in “Poor Things”

Right after the Oscar gala, the actress answered questions from journalists, including Interia’s representative, Artur Zaborski.

When you accepted your Oscar on stage, you seemed completely surprised.

Emma Stone: – I feel like I lost consciousness. I was shocked. My head is still spinning. The award is a great honor and a great surprise.

How about your outfit? (during her Oscar speech, the actress admitted that her dress ripped at the back – editor’s note)

– They sewed it up in the back. When I got off stage, they got straight to it. It was wonderful. I think I ruined it while singing “I’m Just Ken.” I was so in awe of Ryan Gosling and what he was doing that I just went crazy. And then it happened.

What did you learn from playing Bella Baxter?

– She is a heroine who is very important to me. I think that the chance to play a character that you create from scratch doesn’t come along in life. She had to learn the language and all other skills. And to realize at some point that it is full of joy, curiosity and true joy. And what’s more, it doesn’t consist only of good sides. He has many challenges in life, which is fascinating to play. Playing her role was an important lesson for me. I took a lot from it and use it in my real life. I’ve been missing her since we finished filming, which was a long time ago. Two and a half years have passed. I miss Bella. And I’m grateful that today we can celebrate the success of our film.

The other nominees in this category were: Sandra Hüller (“Anatomy of a Fall”), Lily Gladstone (“Bloody Moon”), Carey Mulligan (“The Maestro”) and Annette Bening (“Nyad”).
