According to Stone, the only difference between friends and family is that friends are the family members you get to choose: “I think friendship is pretty much everything. Here’s another turning-30 thing I’ve realized: You pick your family. You realize that your friendships, the people who go with you into these next phases of your life—you’re choosing your family,” Stone told Elle.
