After declining the incredible La La Land-inspired prom invite, Emma Stone reportedly sent teenage fan Jacob Staudenmaier a corsage just hours before his high school dance. According to Daily Mail, the Oscar-winning actress, who plays aspiring actress Mia in the hit musical, sent flowers with a handwritten note which read: "Jacob, A little something for you and your lucky date tomorrow. Have a great time! Much love, Emma Stone."

STORY: Emma Stone turns down La La Land prom invite

Last month, Jacob's video invitation became an internet sensation as he and his friends a recreated the opening scene from La La Land. He said in the video: "I decided to ask Emma Stone to prom by re-creating the opening scene from La La Land. I rewrote the lyrics to the song myself and directed the video and did the choreography too, but thank you so much to all the friends and adults who came out to help make it happen." The teenager's song lyrics included: "People say I look like Ryan Gosling, and maybe that's a bit far-fetched… I know my voice ain't great. But please be my prom date!"

Why Emma Stone picked Emma as her stage name, and what she was nearly called

Shortly after the footage reached the American actress, Emma unfortunately had to turn down Jacob's offer because she was busy filming in London. She did, however, send him a letter thanking him for thinking of her and for "the greatest proposal I've ever received". Jacob read out Emma's letter during an appearance on Good Morning America. "Jacob, thanks for making the greatest proposal I've ever received.," it read. "I can't tell you what an honour that was and how much I smiled through that entire beautifully orchestrated video. I'm in London working but I hope you have the best time at prom and I'm grateful you thought of me. Thank you." She then referenced his video where he hinted that he looked a little like her co-star Ryan Gosling, adding: "Ps, I do see Gosling around the eyes. Love Emma."
