Emma Stone is one of Hollywood’s most loved actresses thanks to her red locks, raspy voice and amazing comedic timing.
Her feet have made headlines in the past year thanks in part to the success of La La Land and the gruelling dancing and singing schedule, which took a toll on her feet, but this has done nothing to diminish fans’ admiration.
It’s no secret that foot enthusiasts assert that the 28 year old actress has the best feet in Hollywood.
The actress reportedly wears a 7.5 shoe in the US. This is roughly average for her 5’6’ frame. Although some sources indicate that she is closer to a US size 8 or UK size 6.
While some critics argue her feet are too boney, Emma Stone laughed her haters off, joking that this verdict gave her reason to quit the business. Always grounded, always prosaic, we look at 6 facts about this amazing actress’ feet.
She loves Jimmy Choo.
So much so, she’s been seen wearing the designer on a handful of occasions in the past few months for her string of appearances to promote La La Land. Emma was first spotted wearing the label’s Lucy pumps in December 2016.
She was later spotted wearing the brand’s Minny and Lucy styles at other events. The shoe label had a meteoric rise to fame from positive press in Vogue and the TV series, Sex and the City, but these raving reviews were nothing new.
Jimmy Choo was once the preferred shoe maker of Princess Diana. She reportedly asked him to make her favorite pair in different colours to match her outfits. Thus, Emma’s love of Jimmy Choo is very much justified for her red carpet appearances.
Her feet are considered so beautiful that she has consistently ranked as one of the celebrities with the best feet in Hollywood by website WikiFeet .
Wikifeet was originally set up by IT programmer Eli Ozer in 2008. The sight has over 3 million visitors Her feet were judged to be the best in Hollywood based on the owner’s criteria of: “toes, soles and arches.” The actress is considered to be one of the best feet posers in Hollywood thanks to her love of strappy sandals and perfectly pedicured feet.
However, the website was trolled and Emma Stone’s feet fell off her top spot. The site owner identified the fake accounts and deleted their vote, restoring her position. Currently, Emma Stone’s feet are ranked as 10th most beautiful in the world.
Megan Fox now occupies top place. Site users complain they cannot get enough high quality photos of Emma Stone’s feet as reason for her dropping a few spots.
She has great arches.
In an article by Haaretz, Eli Ozer, the owner of Wikifeet, explained that the “ the length of the toes is proportional, the soles and soft and the arches are very high”.
A good arch is not just considered beautiful, it’s the sign of good health and overall carriage and posture. Low or too high arches lead to a range of health issues that will need medical attention, rolling of the feet, bunions or arch pain.
While high arches may look great in photos, they create excessive pressure to rear-foot and forefront. This can lead to plantar fasciitis, heel pain, arch strain and “claw toes”. Ouch! It doesn’t look like the actress suffers from any of these painful conditions, but aesthetically beautiful or abnormally high arches come at a price.

I beat up my feet…but it was worth it.” The film went on to break the record for the most Golden Globes. It won a total of seven prizes for every category for which it received a nomination.This includes best musical or comedy film, best director, screenplay, score and song. In this sense, for Emma Stone’s career it was very much worth it.
