She’s passionate. She gave a PowerPoint presentation to her parents to convince them to let her move to California for an acting career. It was set to the Madonna song Hollywood.

She’s dating the sweet ‘n’ geeky actor Andrew Garfield.

She learnt bass but rarely plays, despite good intentions: “I bought a Fender Mustang bass, a really nice off-white, ivory bass, when I got home. I have not touched it since. And I need to. It's in my house, it's sitting there waiting. You know what? After this conversation, I'm going to go play some bass. That's what's going to happen.”

She gives credit where credit is due (when nicking quotes): “There's this Ryan Gosling quote that I steal all the time - I watched an interview with him in Cannes - and he said picking roles is like listening to songs on the radio: There can be a lot of really great songs in a row, but then one comes on that just makes you want to dance.”

She likes to go on "nice rants" about people. She told the New Yorker interview: “Have you ever done that? Just all sat around a table saying nice things about one person? It was the greatest thing. You walk away, and you were just like, That felt so good, to talk about how wonderful someone is.”

She knows sign language. "I learned it as a little kid and just never forgot it! It’s awesome when I can actually use it and speak to other people."

We have big respect for her flawless style.

She’s a dreamer. She moved to Hollywood when she was 15 to pursue acting and was home-schooled so she could go to auditions during the day.

She is friends with T. Swift so we could all hang out together and get mocha lattes or whatever.

She waves her geek flag proudly. She was going to go to Comic-Con undercover as a Stormtrooper but didn’t have the time.

She adopted a puppy from a shelter with her boyfriend Andrew Garfield.

She is practical: Her name is actually Emily. She changed it to Emma after she realised someone else on the Screen Actor’s Guild had her name. Emma is a childhood nickname but she still prefers Emily.

She’s a natural blonde but rocks any hair colour, so we never get bored of her evolving style.

She loves old Hollywood style, just like us.

She made out with R-Gos and can tell us all about it in painstaking detail.
16 / 17
She is totally adorkable.

She has adorable childhood stories. Her husky voice is from childhood colic caused by screaming too much as a bub.
