When Emma Roberts won the role of a bratty pop star in Celeste and Jesse Forever (opening in August), she was thrilled. Of course she was delighted to be playing opposite Rashida Jones, known for her roles in NBC’s Parks and Recreation and The Office. But Roberts was also pretty excited about playing dress-up.
“This character is the combination of every pop star we could think of, so my makeup, hair, and wardrobe were so much fun,” Roberts says. “I wore a rainbow faux fur vest and super-long blonde extensions. That’s why I wanted the part so bad. Because I knew I’d never be able to be like this in real life!”
In real life, the 21-year-old actor habitually hits snooze on her alarm clock, oversleeps, and rushes out of her Los Angeles apartment in the least time-consuming outfit possible. Today she’s wearing polka-dot jeans, a T-shirt, and flip-flops (she’s about to get a pedicure). But when she’s on the red carpet, she’s all girl. “I try to wear dresses,” she says. “I feel like it’s such a fairy tale.”
Emma Roberts’ Childhood
It may seem that Roberts’ life has been one big fairy tale. Her very first audition yielded the role of Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz’s daughter in Blow, she became a tween star as Addie Singer in Nickelodeon’s Unfabulous, and she has polished her acting skills in a number of films, both independent (Lymelife) and blockbuster (Hotel for Dogs). This summer, she’s been shooting Dito Montiel’s heist drama, Empire State. Last but not least, she is the niece of actor Julia Roberts and daughter of actor Eric Roberts.
Growing up, Roberts visited Aunt Julia on shoots and, she says, was so dazzled by the behind-the-scenes magic that her parents had to drag her away at night. Even now, she says, she cherishes every moment on the set, where she is endlessly inspired by experienced actors and directors. After working with Jones, who not only starred as Celeste but also wrote the script for the new film, Roberts started thinking about writing and producing.
Earlier this year while shooting the comedy Adult World, in which she co-stars with John Cusack, she got to know director Scott Coffey really well and is now eager to do more comedy — maybe something of Bridesmaids’ ilk, she says. And her onetime dream of starting a girl band was reignited when she got to sing in her Celeste and Jesse Forever pop star role. “The acting part is fun,” she says, “but there’s so much more to explore.”

Emma Roberts: Exploring Young Adulthood
Meanwhile, Roberts is exploring her own adult world — maintaining an apartment, keeping her room clean without being asked, and staying fit with yoga and SoulCycle, an intense indoor cycling workout. Although she decided to take a break from school after attending Sarah Lawrence College last fall, she says she constantly reads on the set to help pass time.
Emma Roberts: Exploring Young Adulthood continued…
On the side, she models for Neutrogena, joking that being a face model is perfect since she’s only 5 feet 2 inches tall. She is the spokesperson for the company’s annual Wave for Change campaign, which helps teens give back to their communities; the money raised goes to educational charities. And Roberts herself gives back: In early 2006, she helped build houses for families who lost theirs in Hurricane Katrina. She has also been involved with the Lollipop Kids Foundation, which supports children with disabilities and their families.
Even as she keeps busy with the Hollywood juggle, Roberts’ connection with her family remains strong. “When I’m on location, I have my mom come stay with me because I get so lonely,” she says. “I tell her I need her to drive me around — I’m not a very good driver.”
Roberts is especially close to her 11-year-old half sister, Grace. “She visits me, or I steal her from my mom, and we go shopping,” she says. “She’s hilarious, and she’s totally herself. She’s the coolest person ever.” Roberts takes pride in being a role model for Grace — and for other young girls. “I see how impressionable they are, and I want to provide a good example,” she says. “But I also think it’s important to still be yourself — and have your own life.”

Do you have any recommendations for inexperienced blog writers?
I’d genuinely appreciate it.
Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site.

get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
I must say you’ve done a excellent job with this. In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!
Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog?

some articles for your blog in exchange for a link

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than
just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and
everything. However think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this
blog could undeniably be one of the greatest in its niche.
Neat blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make
my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design.
Thanks a lot
Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something
completely unique. P.S My apologies for being
off-topic but I had to ask!
Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your
article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer.
I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
With havin so much content and articles do you ever run
into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?

overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Thanks!
My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about
a year and am worried about switching to another platform.
I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can
import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be greatly

your site on my iphone during lunch break.
I enjoy the information you present here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m
amazed at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .
. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, awesome blog!
Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel
free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you!
Wonderful blog by the way!
Currently it sounds like Movable Type is the top blogging platform out there right
now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
Exceptional post however I was wanting to know if you could write a litte more on this subject? I’d be
very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further.
Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
Thanks a lot!
When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment
is added I get several e-mails with the same
comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Hey there! This is my first visit to your blog! We are
a collection of volunteers and starting a new
project in a community in the same niche. Your blog provided us valuable information to work on.
You have done a outstanding job!
Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
Hello there! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept chatting about this. I will forward this article to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thanks for sharing!
Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
Hello, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane
so any support is very much appreciated.
This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader entertained.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job.
I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often.
Did you hire out a developer to create your theme? Outstanding work!
Hey there! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after browsing through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.
Anyways, I’m definitely glad I found it and I’ll be bookmarking and checking back often!
Hey! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group?
There’s a lot of folks that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Thank you
Hey there, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic blog!
Sweet blog! I found it while searching on Yahoo News. Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been
trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thank you
Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Cheers
Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your
site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share. Thanks!
I_m not that much of a internet reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your website to come back later on.
I really like your blog.. very nice colors & theme. Did you create this website yourself or did
you hire someone to do it for you? Plz answer back as I’m looking to design my own blog and would like to find out where u got this from. many thanks
Whoa! This blog looks just like my old one! It’s on a totally
different subject but it has pretty much the same
layout and design. Outstanding choice of colors!
Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up
and let you know a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m
not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
Hey are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog
world but I’m trying to get started and set up my own. Do you need any coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Heya this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone
with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
losing a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
Good day! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be ok. I’m absolutely enjoying your blog and look forward to new updates.
Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on.
Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with Search Engine Optimization?
I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m
not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share.
I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Hmm is anyone else encountering problems with the images on this blog loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog. Any feed-back would be greatly appreciated.
I’m not sure why but this web site is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.
Hello! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Keep up the outstanding work!
Wow that was unusual. I just wrote an extremely long comment but after I clicked submit my comment didn’t show up. Grrrr… well I’m not writing all that over again. Anyways, just wanted to say excellent blog!
Wow, I knew there was something wrong with Atomium Culure, but this is still shocking. What a waste of money, and that conference may only be the start. European Commission, please be more critical!
Wow, superb blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you make blogging look easy. The overall look of your site is excellent, as well as the content!. Thanks For Your article about FABULOUS-EMMA.COM • The original source for Emma Roberts! .
