'The Help' star Emma Stone has played down the film's chances of winning an Oscar.

The 22-year-old actress - who stars alongside Bryce Dallas Howard, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Mike Vogel and Allison Janney in the forthcoming movie - said she simply wants people to "enjoy" the motion picture first of all before she thinks about winning such a prestigious award.

When asked what she thought about the Oscar buzz surrounding the film, she joked to ET Online: "Is that what that is? I thought that was just a fly? Oh, it's the buzz, that's so interesting.

"It hasn't even come out yet so I hope people just go see the movie and enjoy it."

The film tells the story of the lives of three women - Emma's character Eugenia 'Skeeter' Phelan, who is a college graduate and aspiring writer, as well as Aibileen Clark (Viola) and Minny Jackson (Octavia) in early 1960s' Jackson, Mississippi.
