Emma Stone Turns Down Prom-Posal in the Sweetest Way

So close, Jacob

Aspiring filmmaker and La La Land hyper fan, Jacob Staudenmaier, filmed the prom-posal heard around the world in an attempt to get Emma Stone to go to prom with him. If you haven’t already seen the viral ode to the opening scene of La La Land, take a look:

While the internet waited patiently for a response from Stone, we didn’t get one until Jacob made an appearance on “Good Morning America.” It was there he read the letter that Stone personally sent to him declining the invite.

“Jacob, thanks for making the greatest proposal I have ever received,” Stone wrote. “I can’t tell you what an honor that was and how much I smiled through that entire beautifully orchestrated video. I’m in London working, but I hope you have the best time at prom, and I’m grateful you thought of me. Thank you. P.S. I do see Gosling around the eyes. Love, Emma.”

A letter from Emma Stone and a Gosling looks compliment? Not too shabby.

Oh, and P.S., Jacob had a backup date all along, so he’s doing just fine.
