If you thought Emma Stone Cruel the transformation has been dramatic, wait to see it in the first look at poor things. You’d think the Disney villain’s half-black-half-white trademark would make Stone unrecognizable, but it was her latest hair transformation that made me recheck her IMDB credits.
On April 28, Searchlight Pictures released the first photos of their upcoming take on the Frankenstein trope. By DeadlineStone is set to star as Bella Baxter, “a young woman brought back to life by brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter”, who is played by Willem Dafoe. The description continues, “Under Baxter’s protection, Bella longs for Hungry for the worldliness she misses, Bella flees with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), a shrewd and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across continents. Freed from the prejudices of her time, Bella becomes unwavering in her goal of championing equality and liberation.
Directed by Favorites Yorgos Lanthimos, poor things will premiere on September 8. Stone is also credited as a producer.
In one photo, Stone can be seen sporting an ultra-long black wig and matching dark eyebrows, a dramatic departure from her red bob and wispy bangs, which she rocked throughout March.
Emma Stone isn’t the only actress to recently undergo a major hair transformation for a role. Cara Delevigne looks like a completely different person with rich brunette waves and blunt bangs for the next season of Ryan Murphy american horror story.
