Emma Stone ''struggles'' to follow her own path.

The 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' actress - who is dating her co-star Andrew Garfield - believes it is important that people make their own decisions in life, but admits it isn't something she always finds easy.

She told Stylist : ''I absolutely think that people should follow their own path. And that's probably something, oddly, I have gone back to over the past couple of years and I think that's the thing I have struggled with more recently than ever.''

The 25-year-old beauty thinks it is important to make a good impression in public as she knows she is regarded as a role model by some young people.

She told Stylist magazine: ''[Being a role model] is in no way at all a burden. But that is something I have been more conscious of lately, probably because I haven't had to do interviews for a long time now.

''It's so important to be clear on your feelings about things and what you are gonig to say publicly, because I think that young women - and young people - are incredibly important and they need to have people in the public sphere they can look up to.

''I am not saying I am one of them, but I do attach a big sense of importance to that. That's one of many reasons why I wish I were more eloquent.''
