Emma Stone talks "The New Partridge Family."

She kissed Ryan Gosling in "Crazy, Stupid, Love," stole the show in 2011's "The Help" and dates her "Amazing Spider-Man" costar Andrew Garfield.

Still, Emma Stone came from humble beginnings, and she's the first to admit it. The actress got her start covering Pat Benatar's "We Belong" on "The New Partridge Family," which aired in 2004 on VH1.

"It was totally, 100 percent a reality show," Stone told The Daily Beast of the series, based on the '70s hit show "The Partridge Family. "My mom had never pushed me to audition for anything, but she saw a commercial on TV for it and said, 'You look like Susan Dey a little, and just dyed your hair brown ... Why don’t you give this a shot? I have a weird feeling.' I did it and ended up winning. I don’t regret it for a minute."

The actress, who was then a brunette who went by Emily Stone, may have put her singing career on hold, but she and Garfield came up with a catchy German jingle last month to promote their upcoming film.
