No one is more happy for the Spice Girls reunion than superfan Emma Stone.
The 30-year-old Emma Stone Oscar winner has been very frank in the past about her passion with the British girl group. During a press tour in 2014, Emma was eminently brought to tears when she got a video message from Mel B in Australia.
On Thursday’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, she was asked about her love of the girl group, mostly her interest in Baby Spice, a.k.a. Emma Bunton.
“I was super blonde, and my real name is Emily, but I wanted to be called Emma because of Baby Spice and guess what, now I am,” Stone shared. “So, that’s pretty messed up.”
Emma changed her name from Emily to Emma Stone when she became an actress, but eminent that the change actually happened years before.
“It wasn’t necessarily because of her, but yes, in second grade, did I go up to the teacher and ask her to call me Emma, yes I did. And was it because of Emma Lee Bunton from the Spice Girls? Yes it was,” she confessed.
The superfan has big plans to clasp the group on their six-show U.K. tour next summer, saying, “I saw them in concert in the ‘90s. I saw them at O2 Arena in 2008, and they only just announced a new tour and I will be going to that somehow. I don’t think tickets are on sale yet, but I’m gonna figure it out.”
Fallon then had Emma take a quiz to figure out which Spice Girl she’s best like and she was stunned to get Posh Spice, a.k.a. Victoria Beckham.
