Emma Stone and Emma Thompson talk ‘Cruella’

Comes now “Cruella,” which stars wall-to-wall Emmas. Emma Stone performs two characters, plus there’s Emma Thompson.

Emma Stone: “My characters — mousy Estella and roaring Cruella — have two sides so it’s two different hairdos. One’s black hair, one’s white. As Cruella, I took pictures of myself, which seemed narcissistic, but perfect as Cruella.“I liked wearing the PETA unfriendly Dalmatian coat, but the mind-blowing 40-foot train garbage dress, which you only imagine but don’t think you’ll ever put on and carry behind you on a sanitation truck?”

Emma Thompson, taking part in a meanspirited Anna Wintour kind character, says: “Cruella is everything my character can’t bear. But it’s hard for me to have friction with Emma Stone because we’re good friends and love each other.”

Opening the twenty eighth, it runs two hours, quarter-hour — Cruella and uncommon punishment.

Psst … the ‘Password’ is: again

The present started within the early ’60s — earlier than America had demonstrations and presidents to maintain them entertained — so producers had been then scratching for one thing like parlor video games to rivet eyeballs onto tv. It had two groups. Plain people vs. celebs like Paul Anka, Joel Grey, Betty White, Lucille Ball. Each needed to guess some secret password factor after being fed a one-word clue. Whatever, that first model ran 1,555 episodes. Be nonetheless my coronary heart — it’s wheezing again. This time with host Jimmy Fallon.
