They’ve come a long way, baby. Easy A first hit the big screen on September 17, 2010, and helped launch Emma Stone’s career as her first starring role. It’s been almost ten years since its release, and we decided it’s about time to take a look at where all of its talented cast members are today — from Emma, to Amanda Bynes, to Lisa Kudrow and more. Scroll through our gallery below to see where all the kids and their “parents” from the teen comedy are today.
Emma starred as Olive Penderghast in the 2010 hit movie. Her reputation at school was ruined by a stupid rumor, and she tried to make the best of it — with hilarious results until it got a little heartbreaking for our heroine.
