Emma Stone was reduced to floods of tears during a Q&A for her new movie Poor Things in London after an autistic fan told her about his ‘lonely’ school life.

The actress, 35, broke down in tears on Thursday as the boy poured his heart out, revealing that her old Saturday Night Live sketches got him through school.

The Amazing Spider Man star then jumped off the stage to give him a hug.

Emma, ​​who won two Golden Globes for her role in the new film, plays Bella Baxter, a Frankenstein-style woman brought to life by scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter.

In a Q&A session at a show in London’s Curzon Soho, the audience member said: ‘I’ve been following your career for the last 12 years. I love Poor things. I’ve watched it six times.

‘You always bring electricity to the screen in every one of your performances and everything you create is always pure and honest.

‘I really (sic) fell in love with your heart, your confidence, your evil strength, your advocacy for mental health and awareness. Growing up as one of the few autistic kids in school, I felt lonely and unable to make friends. During recess I snuck into a computer room to watch your old SNL sketches.

“You mentioned on a few occasions that you felt insecure when you didn’t graduate high school and didn’t go to college, but I enjoyed the comfort and the security you brought me during those years,”

The audience then burst into applause.

The audience member greeted her with a huge bouquet as they cried each other and were unable to control their emotions.

Emma privately told the boy ‘that was so cute’ as they shared another hearty hug.

When the tearful actress returned to the stage, she asked if he had a question.

He replied: ‘What is your favorite message that you will take from this experience for the rest of your life?’

Emma replied: ‘I also think Bella is someone who can experience life in a way that is not defined by social constructs and she is able to take in life experiences in a completely original way.

“She sees the good and the bad in equal measure and she’s fascinated by what life has to offer and she’s not like anyone else and that’s deeply inspiring and so I think that’s the biggest thing that has touched me the most.”

For the star-studded event, Emma looked sensational in a long black leather skirt, black sheer tights and a chunky black vest top.
