Correction: “Stone was cast for a partly Asian role in the 2016 film Gods of Egypt. Her role as “Allison Ng”, a quarter Chinese Hawaiian received criticism to which the director of the movie apologized. Stone has no Asian heritage.

She was cast as ‘Allison Ng’ in Aloha (2015).

You telling me that’s the only thing they’re apologizing for, about that wreck of a movie(Gods of Egypt)

Haha. Yeah, it never really should’ve been made in the fist place with such horrendous casting (and story..).

Yes – strangely – she DOES look like she could come from any European country!

Actually, summin up: she’s half Celtic, and her facial features make it clear. So she does look like she could come from just Western Europe

I think Emma’s combined Swedish and German roots take up over 60% of her ancestry.
