Source: Bang Showbiz NewsEmma Stone always believes she would make it as an actress and admits she had no back up plan when she moved to Hollywood.The 'Easy A' star - who was so determined to move to Los Angeles when she was younger that she made her parents a PowerPoint presentation to Madonna's track'Hollywood' - admits she had no back-up plan if her dream failed, but thinks journalism would be the closest career move.She said: "The truth is that I didn't have [a back-up plan]. When I moved to Hollywood I was arrogantly confident that I could be an actor."I didn't really consider any other option, but you know what I would have loved to do? [Be a journalist]. Because [probing into people's private lives is] pretty much what an actor does. And imagine getting to interview people like me."It can't get much better than that."Emma does, however, have an interest in writing her own material after having guest hosted 'Saturday Night Live' twice in the past, but first needs the confidence not to doubt herself and "self-edit" her work.The 24-year-old actress added in an interview with Britain's Glamour magazine: "I'd really love to [write my own material], particularly because there just aren't enough roles for funny women out there."But I self-edit so badly that I'd have to get past the voice in my head first."
