In October 2010, Stone hosted an episode of NBC's late-night sketch comedy Saturday Night Live ; her appearances included a sketch playing off her resemblance to Lindsay Lohan .  Stone described it as "the greatest week of my life".   She hosted it again in 2011, appeared in an episode in 2014, and in its 40th anniversary special in 2015.  A brief appearance in the sex comedy Friends with Benefits (2011) reunited her with Gluck.  She followed this with a supporting role in Glenn Ficarra and John Requa 's romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love (2011) alongside Steve Carell , Ryan Gosling and Julianne Moore . The film features her as a law school graduate, and the love interest of Gosling's character. Despite finding "some inevitable collapses into convention" in the film, Drew McWeeny of HitFix wrote that Stone "ties the whole film together".  At the 2012 Teen Choice Awards , she won the Choice Movie Actress – Comedy award for her performance in the film.  Crazy, Stupid, Love was a box office success, grossing $ million worldwide with a production budget of $50 million. 
Professor Lawrence A. Reid (U. of Hawaiʻi, Dept. of Linguistics, Emeritus) writes that he spent 10 months with the Tasaday and surrounding linguistic groups (1993–1996) and has concluded that they "probably were as isolated as they claim, that they were indeed unfamiliar with agriculture, that their language was a different dialect from that spoken by the closest neighbouring group, and that there was no hoax perpetrated by the original group that reported their existence."  In his paper 'Linguistic Archaeology: Tracking down the Tasaday Language',  Reid states that, although he originally thought that an individual Tasaday named Belayem was fabricating data, he later found, after a detailed analysis of the linguistic evidence, around 300 of Belayem's forms were actually used in Kulaman Valley Manobo ( Manobo languages ), that Belayem had never visited and did not even know about.
