Cabaret, the Broadway musical, is best known right this minute as ground zero of the most epic whiskey-fueled Shia LaBeouf arrest story of all time. But now that the revival welcomes the talented Emma Stone to the stage, LaBeouf's shining moment just might get overshadowed. The first photo of Stone as club singer Sally Bowles was released and she looks like a creepy doll (or rather cabaret singer in seedy club, per the script) thanks to well-placed eyeliner and a healthy dose of photoshop and/or strategic lighting. Alan Cummings would be proud.
