Sometimes, a ticket slips through the cracks for a little while. In Emma Stone’s case…the little while is 8 years, and it has resulted in her losing her license!
The actress was first charged with “failure to produce evidence of financial responsibility” on the Fourth of July in 2005 in her hometown. That means she either didn’t have insurance or didn’t have proof of it. She then failed to show up to her court appearance the next month, went on to big a major star in Hollywood and despite the ticket going into collections and even threats of wage garnishment…she never acted on it.
Finally, the State of California put a hold on her license, which would have meant that she could not renew it before paying the outstanding Arizona fine. She finally paid the $473 in March of last year and went on her way. Now was that so hard!
