"It's like someone has killed you and you have to live through it"

Who said it? What is it about? 
In a recent piece in Interview magazine, Emma Stone chatted with director and writer Cameron Crowe about everything from how she defines summer, to her changing hair colour, to bad auditions, to starting her TV career under the name Riley Stone (fun fact: her real name is Emily!).

But the most intriguing parts of the interview deal with the actress's thoughts on the sadder, scarier, more traumatic moments of life. Like her first heartbreak when she was 14, which sounds more like a horror movie than the teen comedies that gave Stone her big break.
"I was crawling on the floor. I remember throwing up ... I have never felt anything quite like that. It was so visceral. It's like someone has killed you and you have to live through it and watch it happen," she said, before adding that she eventually recovered. "It's weird when you can't make yourself cry with the same things anymore."

  1. Thanks, I have no words to express how much I really love your comments! <3

    Everything in life does have a bad side and I guess that's why I'm so scared to fall in love. It really does sound really scary. At my young age, it's hard to find 'the one' already, highly likely that we'll end up breaking up in the future which is what scares me. I don't want to feel like I'm dying, or like how your friend felt, not eating, always crying, even passing out!

    And I do think I'll be the type to fall in love intensely. I've always followed fairytales, with Cinderella, snow white, beauty and the beast etc. I always thought they were real until a few years ago when the stories of my cousins surfaced, and others around me. It's hard... Especially since I've longed for a partner for so many, many, many years (only suppressing this because of the importance of study and school). I'm certain that my first one (and pray it will be my only one) will be pretty intense for me.

  2. Well, her first heartbreak was really bad. She must be really in love and the guy must have done something vile! It really seems a scene from a scary/horror movie!

    I have a friend of mine that she used to live her romantic stories very intensely and when it ended, it seemed it was the end of the world. Now she is 18 years and accept the end of the relationships more easily, but until when she was 15/16 years she really suffered hard. She cried for days, she closed alone in the bathroom, she don't eat and I remember once she almost passed out after the boy broke up with her!

    It seems sometimes the fairy tale turns into a nightmare! Everything in life has a dark side...

    PS: Great post :)
