Stone made dog's dinner of baking

Emma Stone has revealed she once worked in a dog bakery in Los Angeles - but was so bad that the pets wouldn't eat the cookies she made.

The star of Easy A, Superbad and Zombieland told Vanity Fair she dropped out of high school to move to Hollywood and pursue her dream of becoming an actress, but took a part-time job in the special bakery while she was waiting for her breakthrough.

Emma said: "I think three people called my specific cookies inedible to their dogs. I'm not a super-talented dog baker."

But the 22-year-old actress - who is rumoured to be dating Andrew Garfield after being cast opposite him in the new Spider-Man movie - said she has no regrets about dropping out of school.

Emma said: "I did Superbad in what would've been my senior year. I was playing a senior, and had I graduated I would've missed that opportunity, and had I missed that opportunity I wouldn't be here right now."

The actress - who appears on the cover of the magazine in a vintage-style bikini - also revealed she is aware of the Hollywood pressure to stay thin, but refuses to succumb to fad diets.

Emma said: "I'm definitely more conscious of it as I've gotten older."

She added: "That diet, have you seen it? It's like: Eat this diet, which is a palm-size piece of chicken and some beans, and work out two hours a day for the rest of your life."
