In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women's movement, the 1973 tennis match between women's world champion Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men's-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world. But it's also a reminder that when they're seeking out screenwriters to tell women's stories, they might ought to consider occasionally hiring a woman to do it.

As for the actress this is the first time in her career that she's had to play a real-life character.

She said it was a "super challenging" experience. As the rivalry between King and Riggs kicked into high gear, off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles. "But when you get on stage you feel fine".

"We got that footage because his daughters are feminists and wanted to contribute to the film", says King.

But in a statement sent to various media outlets, chairman and CEO Dave Brandon was optimistic about the future of the chain. Toys R Us has approximately 1,600 stores around the world, which Brandon confirmed are still mostly profitable.

"And he kept putting his arm around her", I add. "She had all that on the line", said Faris. After the Billie Jean of the film wins against Bobby Riggs, there's a moment where she's sitting in the locker room alone and weeps, allowing all of the pressure of the past several weeks, from her marriage, from her discovery and acknowledgement of her sexuality, from her career, and from her now being seen as a role model to women everywhere to finally come out in a way she hadn't allowed before.

Stone - who shot a video campaign with the non-profit Child Mind Institute - admitted she still suffers from "anxiety to this day" but 'not panic attacks, knock on wood'. It's really great artistry with my shoes and then this is anxiety here, ' the 28-year-old Oscar victor explained of the sketch labeled 'I'm bigger than my anxiety!'

Emma Stone visited "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" Tuesday night to promote her upcoming film, "Battle of the Sexes," but soon talk turned to her life off-screen - including a battle of her own. "She needed to hear her voice at 29".
