Emma Stone plays Box of Lies on 'Tonight Show'

Emma Stone might be a great actress, lip synch-er, and Spice Girls fan, but liar? Not so much.

Stone went on The Tonight Show Tuesday to play Box of Lies, a game that involves lying about what you find in a mystery box. Stone pulled a Frozen DVD frozen in a block of ice in her box, but told Jimmy Fallon she had playing cards that were formed into a “sculpture stack of those cards in the shape of, I guess it could only be a salamander. Or like a gecko, I guess.” Thanks to the combination of Stone’s lack of lying skills and the impossibility of a gecko sculpture made out of cards, she lost the round.

In all fairness, she warned us: “I love to lip-synch, but I am a terrible liar,” Stone said before choosing her box. “So this is a bad game for me.”

Stone currently stars in Birdman, which arrives in theaters Oct. 17.
