Emma Stone is set to play Bella in the upcoming film Poor Things. Before the film's release, Stone spoke with British Vogue about the characterization of her character, Bella, and how she enjoyed playing a lady with a liberal outlook.


Stone said, “ "It's such a fairy tale and a metaphor—clearly, this can't actually happen—but the idea that you could start anew as a woman, as this body that's already formed, and see everything for the first time and try to understand the nature of sexuality, or power, or money or choice, the ability to make choices and live by your own rules and not society's—I thought that was a really fascinating world to go into."


Stone also added, “Even though Bella has obviously been through trauma in her life, it just isn't there for her now. She was the most joyous character in the world to play because she has no shame about anything. She's new, you know? I've never had to build a character before that didn't have things that had happened to them or had been put on them by society throughout their lives. It was an extremely freeing experience to be her.”
