At the tender age of 12, Emma Stone showed a desire for acting as she went on to audition for All That. In fact, the actor has auditioned preparing three original characters for the show which includes a demonically-possessed babysitter and a cheerleader who couldn’t spell what she was cheering. Appearing on a The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon episode, the actor revealed the story of her audition for the show. “When I was, um, 12, I auditioned for All That,” Stone told Jimmy Fallon. “I went to an open call for All That. We drove out from Arizona and I auditioned for all that when I was 12 years old,” she added. However, Stone was unaware that she had to come up with three characters on her own.

“I thought they were going to give us sketches. And then five minutes before I went in the room they said, ‘You need to have three characters when you come in the room.’ So I was like, ‘Okay,’ and then I made up a couple of characters.”

Stone developed three characters on the spot and performed it. “It was a pretty special experience,” she said. But she couldn’t get in the show.

It was not going in her direction when she found out that the participants had to develop three characters. But Stone did not skip the audition instead she developed three characters on the spot in an attempt to debut in the show. “I remember that one was a cheerleader that couldn’t spell what she was cheering,” Stone told Fallon.

“And then there was another one that was actually pretty nuts that was a babysitter who is possessed. So as she’s reading books to the kids, she’s like, ‘and then Goldilocks and the (demon voice) three bears,’ and she catches her head, and is like, ‘Sorry about that. Sorry about that.’ And then would keep reading.”

Stone’s original characters did not work out and failed to get into the show that launched Nick Cannon, Kenan Thompson, and Amanda Bynes. Although she could not make it to the beloved Nickelodeon show, she’d later forge a splendid career becoming Hollywood’s A-lister as well as winning an Oscar. 

Stone is set to appear in Yorgos Lanthimos’ steampunk black comedy fantasy Poor Things, scheduled for theatrical release on December 8, 2023.
