Well, well, well, it looks like we were all mistaken. Emma Stone wasn't going out for the Mary Jane Watson role in Spider-Man as originally reported. Instead, it was the opposite: She was auditioning to play Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker's first love interest and the lead female role in the film. Sony has issued an official press release noting that Stone, a natural blonde (you Spidey loyalists will feel better about the decision after hearing that), has come onboard to play Gwen Stacy, though there's no other word on whether that means she's the only female love interest.
