OTRC: Emma Stone strips down for W Magazine cover, talks about her Oscar experience

Emma Stone talks to OnTheRedCarpet.com at the Hollywood premiere of 'The Amazing Spider-Man,' at Westwood's Regency Village Theatre in Los Angeles on June 28, 2012. / Stone appears on the February 2013 cover of W magazine.

Emma Stone appears on the cover of W Magazine's February Movie Issue sporting a bra and little else.

The 24-year-old starlet, who recently helped 2013 Oscar host Seth MacFarlane announce the nominees, is featured in an interview with the publication where she talks about "Gangster Squad," the movie that made her cry and her experience at last year's Oscars.

The magazine calls her "Hollywood's Reigning Golden Girl" and Stone said that she enjoyed tackling a more dramatic role for "Gangster Squad."

"In real life, sometimes it's uncomfortable for me not to go for the joke. I've been looking at that in myself lately," she said. "Often, joking for me is a way of diffusing the awkwardness of a situation, so it's kind of exhilarating to be a part of projects where there's nothing funny or lighthearted."

The actress also spoke about the movie that makes her cry, which she says is the 1931 Charlie Chaplin film "City Lights."

"The end of 'City Lights' makes me cry every time I see it--when Charlie Chaplin walks by the shop window and the once blind girl brings him a flower and pins it to his lapel," she said. "She's always thought that he was a millionaire, but he was really a tramp."

Stone, who is known for her roles in "Superbad," "Zombieland," "Easy A" and "The Help," dished about her experience presenting at last year's Oscar ceremony with comedian Ben Stiller. She and Stiller presented the award for Achievement in Visual Effects.

As part of a bit for the show, Stone acted excited about presenting at the ceremony for the first time and tried to bounce off ideas to Stiller about extending the moment by suggesting they do comedic banter or break out into song or invite Jonah Hill on stage to dance. Stiller, however, shot down all of her ideas.

W Magazine's Editor-At-Large, Lynn Hirschberg, complimented Stone on the bit and said she was "extremely convincing."

"A lot of people thought it was something else: When I came offstage, they were saying, 'You were so drunk!' And I wasn't. Not until after ..."

The actress later added, "There are only a couple of events where I've truly felt, That was an awesome night?and the Oscars was one of them."
