Washington: Actor Emma Stone met one of her music idols, Spice Girls’ Emily Bunton, in person on Saturday.
Bunton posted a picture with Stone on Instagram with a caption that read, “When Emma met Emma. #2become1.” She posted the picture before her next stop at the Wembley Stadium for the Spice Girls Reunion tour, which was announced last year, Entertainment Weekly reported.
Bunton rose to prominence with the pop girls group, Spice Girls, and was nicknamed “Baby Spice” in the early 1990s.
