Emma Stone Looks Nude In Pose With Hillary Clinton (Photos) Promo Image

Emma Stone's recent photo-op with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton didn't turn out quite as she had hoped.

The Academy Award-winner and the two-time presidential candidate both appeared on the Sept. 20 episode of "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert," notes the Daily Mail.

Backstage, Stone and Clinton were photographed holding up T-shirts depicting tennis legend Billie Jean King, whom Stone portrays in the forthcoming movie, "Battle Of The Sexes."

However, in the photograph, Stone's strapless dress is completely obscured by the T-shirt, making her appear nude.

The accident provided fodder for laughs when her turn came to occupy the guest chair next to Colbert.

"Can I also point something out beyond this very cool photo?" she rhetorically asked the host. "I get a chance to meet Hilary Clinton -- which is just unfathomable and incredible -- and I look like I'm nude."

"Yes, it does look like you are topless," Colbert concurred, as they both laughed about the photographic blooper.

As for Stone's new movie, it documents the historic 1973 match between King and Bobby Riggs, which proved to be a landmark moment in the feminist movement.

At the time, Riggs was challenging female tennis players to play him, claiming that even a 55-year-old retired tennis star like himself could defeat any current female tennis player, recalls CBS Sports.

In early 1973, he defeated Margaret Court, the first woman player to accept his challenge. When 29-year-old King agreed to face off against him at the Houston Astrodome, it became a cultural phenomenon.

Billed as "The Battle of the Sexes," it drew the largest audience in tennis history, with attendance of over 30,000 at the Astrodome and a television audience of 50 million.

As Stone's T-shirt indicates, King easily defeated Riggs 6-4 6-3 6-3, making her an instant feminist icon.

For the film, Stone studied King's playing style, and spent three months gaining 15 pounds of muscle during twice-a-day workouts with fitness trainer-to-the-stars Jason Walsh. The part of Riggs is played by Steve Carell.

In addition to joking with Colbert about the T-shirt flub, Stone also discussed her lifelong struggle with anxiety.

She shared a drawing of herself that she made while in therapy as a child, explaining that she began getting panic attacks when she was seven.

In the picture, she is pointing at a little green monster, beneath the caption, "I'm bigger than my anxiety!"

She explained the drawing to Colbert. "This is me, I guess. It's really great artistry with my shoes and then this is anxiety here," she said. "It's a little green monster that looks a little bit, as someone backstage said, a uterus with some ovaries."
