Emma Stone denies calling Jimmy Kimmel a 'prick' over Oscars joke: 'I wasn't upset with him at all'

The "Poor Things" actress added that she's "near-unoffendable."

Emma Stone is no poor thing, taking offense at awards season jokes.

Back in March, Stone appeared visibly annoyed with Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel when he declared, “Those were all the parts of Poor Things that we’re allowed to show on TV" following the film's Best Picture nominee montage.

But Stone denies that she had any problem with the quip, particularly internet speculation that she seemed to be mouthing the word "prick" in response to the joke. "Did he upset me?" she responded when The Hollywood Reporter asked her about the moment. "No! I didn't call him a prick. What did I say? I didn't call him a prick. I wasn't upset with him at all. I'll have to look that up. I’m near-unoffendable."

Emma Stone and Jimmy Kimmel on Oscar night

On the night of the Oscars, footage showed Stone making a comment to her husband, Dave McCary, immediately following Kimmel's joke, but it wasn't clear what she was saying. Stone did not clarify her remarks in the footage during her conversation with THR.

Even if Stone did mouth the word "prick," which she denies, it was unclear if it was a joking remark. At the Golden Globes in January, she sarcastically jokingly said, "What an a--hole" when asked about friend Taylor Swift's raucous cheers for her win. Stone later said she regretted making the joke. "I definitely won’t make a joke like that again,” Stone told Variety, “because I saw headlines that really pulled it out of context.” Pointing at herself, Stone said, “What a dope.”

As for the Oscars, whatever she said, Stone got the last word when she won her second Academy Award for Best Actress for her portrayal of Bella Baxter in Poor Things. In the film, she portrays a young woman who is reanimated and goes on a journey of self-discovery, coming of age as she encounters predatory men, and the joys of literature and love-making.

"Poor Things is unquestionably the performance of Stone's career, her wide eyes employed to perfection in Bella's own wonder at the world," Entertainment Weekly wrote of her performance.

EW has reached out to Kimmel's representatives for comment.
