Stone reportedly won the role over other high-profile actresses, including Glee's Dianna Agron and Alice in Wonderland's Mia Wasikowska. No doubt her breakout performance in Easy A helped secure her spot as Hollywood's latest "it" girl.

Garfield's star is also rising -- he's heating up movie theaters right now as Eduardo Saverin in the critically-acclaimed The Social Network.

Despite reportedly losing out to Stone, Agron is reportedly still in the running for another role in the flick.
