Is Emma Stone a growth commodity? In the latest issue of New York magazine, Kyle Buchanan and Claude Brodesser-Akner assess the monetary value of her star "stock," polling insiders on whether they view her as a buy, a sell, or a hold. This is mainly an excuse to collect colorful quotes from anonymous Hollywood executives ("[Emma] has, as they say, that 'approachable' beauty -- sort of like Jen Aniston had in the early nineties"; "She has the C word. With Sharon Stone, it means something else, but with Emma Stone, it means 'charisma.' "), but in the end the authors compile enough evidence to convincingly declare Stone a strong buy. After seeing 'The Help,' we tend to agree.
