Emma Stone has been one busy gal over the last couple weeks...

Irrational Man co-stars Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix attended the film’s premiere last night (Jul. 09, 2015) in Beverly Hills, CA at the The WGA Theatre.

The 26-year-old actress looked gorgeous in a sleeveless ivory dress by Giambattista Valli and accessorized with Salvatore Ferragamo clutch and heels by Paul Andrew.

After the premiere screening at the Writer’s Guild Theater, guests gathered at Hakkasan Beverly Hills to mingle and toast the debut, where they enjoyed signature SVEDKA cocktails featuring SVEDKA‘s new Grapefruit Jalapeno flavor.

Stone and Phoenix star in the new Woody Allen film along with Parker Posey and Adrien Brody, which is about a tormented philosophy professor finds a will to live when he commits an existential act.

The Aloha actress first met the director when he requested a meeting about his last movie, 2014’s Magic in the Moonlight.

Allen says he’d seen her in “one of those young people’s movies” while exercising on his treadmill and thought, “My God, this girl is remarkable.” The meeting lasted four minutes. “I don’t even think I took off my coat,” Stone says. When she showed up on set, she says, she was “absolutely convinced I was going to be fired.”

“It’s terrifying,” she adds. “He doesn’t do table reads or any rehearsal. You can’t even ask questions about your character, because he’ll be like: ‘You know this is a movie, right?’ ” Says Allen: “I never talk to any of the actors in any of my movies about anything if I can avoid it.”
