Working with Colin Firth has its perks. Working with Emma Stone has its drawbacks.

In a joint interview to promote Woody Allen's movie Magic in the Moonlight, Stone revealed that she pestered her colleague about his prior work. "I've seen Love Actually about 18 times," the 25-year-old actress told The Daily Beast. "I've seen Bridget Jones too many times now. You were so upset with me! I live-texted Colin the plot of Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason a few months back while I was watching it. You were very upset with me, if I remember correctly. I talked him through what he was doing."

Stone's unfiltered access to Firth became a bit irksome. "She's talking through my back catalog via text!" Oscar winner Firth, 53, jokingly complained. "I might decide to not revisit stuff in the past, and then you get a good friend saying, 'Oh, when you were doing this you had this and that expression on your face.'"

"I've seen many of Colin's movies," Stone continued, adding that her mom "absolutely does love Colin."

"You're not the only person whose mother loves me," Firth said with a laugh.

Later in the interview, after Firth quoted Groucho Marx, he wondered, "Am I just a quote-bore?"

Stone replied by quoting Bridget Jones, saying, "I like you very much...just as you are."

"She can do it!" Firth said. "Jesus."

"That was so good, and you know it!" Stone said. "Look at're all red now. Oh, Colin, you're so wonderful," she said with a laugh. "You're my Oscar Wilde." Again, Firth asked, "But am I a quote-bore?"

Stone told her co-star, "You're a quote whore is what you are. You have so many quotes that I can't see straight. You're like the quote village bicycle." Firth, ever a good sport, laughed and announced to Stone, "I'm going to stop now. Crack-Whores and Quote-Bores. That will be the name of my autobiography."

Something tells us Stone will be the first in line to buy that book!
