Emma Stone has always been close with her mother Krista Stone.

But upon hearing the news in 2008 that she had been diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, the two became inseparable.

"I was oddly stoic, the opposite of how I usually am," the actress told People. "But it was terrifying."

The actress put on a brave face for her mother throughout the scary ordeal, which included a year and a half of chemotherapy and constant trips to Arizona to visit her mother in treatment.

"I'm sure, in private, Em lived in fear and anxiety," Krista said. "But she really shifted into this [mindset of], 'We're going to take care of this and everything's going to be fine.'"

Her mother also revealed that the actress was tested for the BRCA gene and "was negative, which was very lucky."

When the going gets tough, Emma gets even tougher!
