Actress Emma Stone is currently starring in the film 'Easy A,' which is a remake of the classic novel 'The Scarlet Letter.' In both the book and the movie, the letter "A" stands for adultery. But in Emma's case, it just stands for asthma. One of these words is kind of sexy, and the other equals a common form of lung disease. And that sort of sums up Emma's problem.
On 'The Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), Emma told Jay Leno how she learned she had asthma, and how she learned that she might have a few difficulties with the whole "sex" thing.
While filming a simulated sex scene for 'Easy A,' the actress had a bad asthma attack and had to be given oxygen. Apparently, she was doing a lot of "jumping up and down" during the scene. "Wow," Leno said.
