Emma Stone regrets deleting all of her emails

Emma Stone regrets deleting "thousands of emails."

The 26-year-old actress "cried for like an hour" after her personal email address and phone number were posted on WikiLeaks during the recent Sony hacking scandal before completely emptying her inbox because she was "just so freaked out" by the idea of someone reading her private messages.

The 'Birdman' star said: "I did one of the worst things ever, which was react really quickly.

"In about a 30-second span, I hit 'Select All' and 'Delete Forever,' and thousands of emails, like six years of emails, are now gone forever. I was just so freaked out that someone was in there.

"It was horrible. I cried for like an hour."

Emma, who recently moved back to Los Angeles from New York City, decided to take action after receiving "probably five emails and five texts" from strangers, but regrets deleting many of the messages even though she was "so overwhelmed" at the time.

She said: "Most of the emails I'm mourning I can still talk to the person and get them back. But there's others where the person is actually gone. It really sucks."

The Oscar nominee recently rekindled her relationship with British actor Andrew Garfield after a brief split, but doesn't like discussing their romance even though they have attended public events together.

She told the Wall Street Journal magazine: "It's so special to me that it never feels good to talk about, so I just continually don't talk about it."
