And that's exactly what it did, and Stone loved it. She tracked down the teenager, who resembles her La La Land co-star Ryan Gosling, and wrote an email thanking him.

“Jacob! Thanks for making the greatest proposal I’ve ever received. I can't tell you what an honor that was and how much I smiled through that entire beautifully orchestrated video. I'm in London working but I hope you have the best time at prom and I’m grateful you thought of me. Thank you!
