Emma Stone is speaking out about her experience working with her co-star Willem Dafoe in their upcoming movie, "And." The two have also previously appeared in "Poor Things."  "There’s this instinct to perform that many actors have — the ‘Look at me, look at me!’ kind of performer," Stone told the New York Times. "He’s the opposite of that.

Maybe it’s changed through the years. A lot of actors I bond with have been doing this for a long time, and you know they’ve gone from ‘I’ to ‘We.’" In one "And" scene in particular, Stone's character slaps Dafoe's character while he is off-screen, however the "Spider-Man" actor insisted on staying on set and had Stone actually slap him 20 times.

Director Yorgos Lanthimos praised Dafoe for his commitment, saying "that’s what you want from actors…to want to be part of it in any way." Details regarding the plot for "And" have yet to be released.

The last time Stone was seen on the big screen was in the 2021 movie "Cruella," which told the origin story of the popular Disney villain, in which she played the titular character.
