Crazy, Stupid, Love is up there with our favourite movies.

The hit romcom stormed onto our screens in 2011, grossing over $142 million (£112 million) at the box office and bringing Ryan Gosling a cheeky Golden Globe nomination.

But while the movie – which follows Steve Carells character Cal Weaver as he navigates divorce and dating with the help of Ryan – was a resounding success, its lead star has never watched it.

Ever. Not at all. Not a single time, people!

Speaking to Timothée Chalamet as part of Varietys actors interviewing actors series, Emma revealed that the anxiety she felt during filming and the consequent pressure of seeing herself on screen mean shes never been able to watch a single scene.

I was really in love with that script, but I put so much pressure on myself, the actress told Timothée.

I was 20, and while we were shooting it, I was just going nuts and was like, this whole thing could fail. It felt like it had to be well-calibrated throughout, and it was the first time that I had ever had to rely on myself to be able to carry all of that.

The same couldnt be said for Timothée, who admitted he has no qualms watching his own work.

When I did Interstellar, I saw that 12 times in theatres and Imax, he told Emma candidly.

And we love you so much more for it, Timothée.

Luckily, Emma explained that shes since become more comfortable with the process of watching herself onscreen and thanks growing as an actress and person for helping her confidence.

And the 30-year-old will no doubt want to re-live all the childhood feels as she gets her teeth stuck into her latest role as Cruella de Vil in Disneys punky remake of 101 Dalmations.

The upcoming film, provisionally entitled Cruella, will see Emma take the crown from Glenn Close for the famed role in Disneys latest live-action remake – and we just. cant. wait.

The announcement follows Emmas critically-acclaimed portrayal of unhinged Annie Landsberg in trippy Netflix sci-fi series, Maniac, alongside Jonah Hill.

The La La Land star has also been busy forming a life-long friendship with The Favourite co-star Olivia Colman, with the pair gushing over the fun they had shooting the films raunchy sex scene, and, earlier this week, posing up a storm in the photo booths at the 2018 British Independent Film Awards.
