PHOENIX — An Arizona lawmaker has introduced a resolution that would honor the Oscar-winning actress and Arizona native Emma Stone.

Rep. Bob Thorpe (R-Flagstaff) proposed H.R. 2002 on Jan. 11.

The resolution would have “members of the House of Representatives honor Stone on her outstanding accomplishments as an actress and extend best wishes for continued success in her remarkable career.”

The text of the resolution included Stone’s roots as a Scottsdale-born native who started acting at the Valley Youth Theatre in Phoenix as a kid.

The resolution then detailed Stone’s move to Los Angeles at 15 to pursue her acting career, before identifying several projects that she was involved in, including her roles as Laurie Partridge “In Search of the Partridge Family” and Jules in “Superbad.”

“Following a string of successful performances, she won the leading role in 2010 as Olive in Easy A, which established her as a star,” it read.

“Now one of the highest paid actresses in the world, Emma Stone has earned numerous accolades for her work, including an Academy Award, a BAFTA Award, a Golden Globe Award, and three Screen Actors Guild Awards.

“The citizens of this state are proud to call Emma Stone a native daughter of Arizona,” it continued.

Stone has long been a darling of the Valley, but this would be the first action taken by a state lawmaker to recognize her.
