Emma Stone is the perfect rebellious daughter
Actress Emma Stone plays the daughter of formerly superheroic actor Michael Keaton in the dark dramady “Birdman.” The producers saw no need to obscure Stone’s epidermal issue: Adult acne. In a few scenes, close-ups reveal congested pores and fading blemishes. Since she portrays a young woman with addiction issues, perhaps the director felt her problem skin reflected her character's emotional problems.
Her performance is authentic, down to the last blackhead
Stone has gone public with her propensity to pimples. In fact, in an interview with Refinery29, she reports she took the strong and usually effective vitamin A pill, Accutane (isotretinoin) for 2 months and saw an improvement. So why is she still breaking out?
Turns out most people who undergo this treatment require at least 4 months of the pill or sometimes 5 or 6 months. Accutane can be a challenge to take, since it is associated with dry skin, sun sensitivity, and birth defects if a woman becomes pregnant during the course. In the US, male and female patients have to enroll in an online Federal database called iPledge and see their doctor monthly while being treated. Yet like Keaton’s former fictional movie role, Birdman, Accutane can be a dermatological hero.
