There is no denying that Hollywood actress Emma Stone is a very talented actress, who gives her all in every role she has ever taken on, leading to some fantastic performances along the way. However, there have been a lot of negative responses about her latest role in the new movie Aloha.
In Aloha, Emma Stone takes on the role of Hawaiian captain Allison NG and many people have insisted that the beautiful actress does not have the right look to play the role. Now though, director Cameron Crowe has spoken out to defend the decision, claiming that the person who the character is based on was a red-head herself.
Crowe explained, "I have heard your words and your disappointment, and I offer you a heart-felt apology to all who felt this was an odd or misguided casting choice. As far back as 2007, Captain Allison Ng was written to be a super-proud quarter Hawaiian who was frustrated that, by all outward appearances, she looked nothing like one."
He added, "A half-Chinese father was meant to show the surprising mix of cultures often prevalent in Hawaii. Extremely proud of her unlikely heritage, she feels personally compelled to over-explain every chance she gets. The character was based on a real-life, red-headed local who did just that."
As well as starring Emma Stone, the Aloha cast also features Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams and Bill Murray, to name just a few. While Aloha hit the big screen in the US on May 29, it will not land in the UK until September 4.
