At under five and a half foot, Emma Stone isn't much of a colossus, but she did her damnedest to turn herself into one for new tennis movie 'The Battle of the Sexes'.
In another depressing story highlighting the gender pay disparity in Hollywood, Emma Stone has revealed that male co-stars have taken pay cuts in order to ensure that she would be paid fairly.
The new trailer for 'Battle of the Sexes' lobs up a raft of 70s sexism, as it tells the gripping tale of Billie Jean King's famous exhibition tennis match with infamous showman Bobby Riggs.
Billie Jean’s list of pioneering accomplishments is long. Billie Jean might be most famous for crushing former Wimbledon champion Bobby Riggs in the “Battle of the Sexes.” The experience is being captured in two upcoming movies, one with Paul Giamatti and Elizabeth Banks and another with Steve Carell and Emma Stone. Before their showdown, the then 55-year-old Riggs was very vocal about his opinion that women could never beat men at tennis and Billie Jean made it her mission to prove him wrong.
