Los Angeles: Actress Emma Stone hit rock bottom after suffering severe break-outs as a teenager. She was put on prescription medication to combat her spots.

Her pimples returned as she struggled to shoot her first lead role in `Easy A`.

"I am actually pretty interested in skin care, because I had bad hormonal acne when I was 17, and they put me on acne medication for it," quoted Stone as saying.

"After two months of medication, I went off of it, and since then, my skin, my mouth, my lips, my eyes are all so dry. Then, I had stress acne when I was 20, when I did Easy A, which they kindly video-airbrushed out of the movie.

"But I realised how debilitating and embarrassing it can be to have cystic acne. So, I am really interested in the biology of what makes up acne and how to work on it from the outside, too," she added.
