Before Emma Stone was Emma Stone—that is, before she adopted the name of the Spice Girl Emma Bunton, alias Baby Spice, as her own—she was, as she put it on Thursday’s appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, a “supermodel. ” You might have seen her work—in the core textbook series “Horizons,” by McGraw Hill, in which a young, brace-faced Emma Stone (née Emily Stone) beams out at the observer, surrounded by a spread of textbook covers: math, spelling and vocabulary, French, and others. “Where I’m from, in Arizona, they had a little thing where you could be a model for educational textbooks,” Stone explained to Fallon. “Like the kids you see on textbooks who are like, ‘I love these textbooks. ’” She did it precisely once, for one day, and “thought it was the coolest thing in the world. ” Middle-school students across the globe probably agree.
