Actress Emma Stone made an appearance in Toronto, Canada on Sunday (Sept. 10), where she premiered her new film Battle of the Sexes during the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival.
Emma was joined by some of her co-stars at the premiere, including Steve Carell, Sarah Silverman, Natalie Morales, Alan Cumming and Austin Stowell, and the actress was also joined by special guest Billie Jean King, whom Emma portrays in the film.
Battle of the Sexes focuses on the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King (Stone) and Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell), which came to be called The Battle of the Sexes, and was one of the most-watched televised sporting events of all time. The film also explores gender equality and the feminist movement, as King’s husband urged her to fight for equal pay while King struggled to come to terms with her sexuality.
Battle of the Sexes will hit theatres on Sept. 22!
