The acting icon kicked off her Hollywood career in 1978, according to her IMDb page, with an appearance in a video short promoting "Grease" on Broadway. Cut to over 40 years later, and Stone's earned herself an Emmy, a Golden Globe and an Oscar nomination, and she has several high-profile projects on the horizon.

Her success story isn't so cut and dry, of course, so here's a look back at Stone's eight biggest roles in celebration of her birthday:
