Emma Stone wanted to become an actress for the "adrenaline" rush.

The 22-year-old star - who rose to fame after appearing in 2007 movie 'Superbad' - first decided to enter the business after appearing in a school play and loving the nerves she had while doing it.

She said: "I think it was doing it for the first time, on stage in a school play when I was in first Grade - I really felt so happy and alive and scared, and I think it was the adrenaline of it that initially got me hooked on acting - but then actually wanting to be a part of movies was because of how deeply movies affected me. And how much they made me feel like I had a voice that I couldn't find myself."

Now, the 'Easy A' actress is keen on always telling stories, but believes a time will come where she no longer wants to appear in front of the camera.

She said: "I care about telling incredible stories, and I think there will be some point where I just won't be in them anymore. I hopefully will be able to be part of them, but not being on camera or playing the role. I don't know that I'm the best person for the job most of the time!"
