She told Variety.com, "I thought that this was a really exciting and interesting reimagining of a character that we feel like we know on a surface level. It was fun to go deeper into what makes her tick and what makes her so evil." Stone is the second actor to play Cruella de Vil after Glenn Close portrayed the role of the villain in 1996 film 101 Dalmatians adaptation and its 2000 sequel 102 Dalmatians.
