She's one of Hollywood's most in-demand comedy actress after her hilarious performances Easy A and Crazy, Stupid, Love.

But Emma Stone shows she can be just as sexy as she is funny as she turned up the heat on the David Letterman's Late Show in a little black dress.

The 5ft 6in actress showed off her toned pins in a thigh-skimming Azzaro mini-dress with plunging neckline and maroon Brian Atwood Venus pumps as she arrived at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York.

The 22-year-old, who is currently promoting her latest film The Help, made quite the impression on chat show host Letterman, who gushed about her blue eyes.

He told her: 'You have tremendous beautiful eyes. It's a blue I have not seen, its such a clear light blue it's like the light is emanating from them.'

During her interview, Stone recalled an unusual experience attending a private screening of her new movie with First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House.

Awkward experience: The 22-year-old admitted sitting through a screening at the White House was embarrassing

She said: 'They gave us a call and said they wanted a screening at the White House so Octavia Spencer - who's in the movie - and I went to the White House and met Michelle Obama.

'They said Michelle Obama would really like it for you two to stay (while they watched it). You can't say no to...

'So we stayed and Octavia and I were sitting in the front row, just the two of us, and everyone was behind us so we couldn't go like this [hides face] so it was quite an experience.'

Smitten: Letterman praised Stone's 'tremendous beautiful eyes'

When Letterman asked if the White House served any popcorn, Stone replied there wasn't before appealing to camera: 'Maybe for the future... Alcohol would have been nice Mrs Obama.'

The Help - adapted from Kathryn Stockett's novel of the same name - stars Stone as a young university graduate who has returned home to Jackson, Mississippi in the 1960s and follows her relationship with two African-American maids.

Aside from filming, Stone has been hard at work the past few weeks promoting her various movie projects.

Two weeks ago, Crazy, Stupid, Love was released and is performing well in the U.S. box office, while she also has a supporting role in Friends with Benefits, which hit cinemas around the same time.
