Like most 7-year-olds with a flair for the dramatic, Emma Stone once played a furry creature in The Wind in the Willows and went on to star in a production of the critically acclaimed (JK) Thanksgiving play No Turkey for Perky.

Unlike most first graders, however, she would achieve bona fide Movie Actress status and, as such, be serenaded with a song from NTFP during a talk-show appearance.

Below, watch The Roots play a few bars from the Birdman actress' first musical and Jimmy Fallon chortle over childhood photos of her in costume as an otter with chest hair.
