Emma Roberts has had the chance to work with some A-list actors and actresses, but no one could top Jennifer Aniston — at least in her mind.
Roberts, 21, chatted with HuffPost Celebrity about her experience on “We’re The Millers” and why working alongside Aniston was a “dream come true.”
“Jennifer Aniston is a genius. I’ve been such a fan of hers for so long, so to get to work with her was one of those dream come true, check-off-my-list kind of things that I’ve always wanted,” Roberts told HuffPost. “I think we all worked together really well and I think there was a good chemistry between us,” she added of Aniston and Sudeikis. “We became friends outside of work, so it translated well.”
Roberts also discussed starring alongside James Franco in the upcoming movie “Palo Alto,” which is based on his book of the same name.
“It’s a fictitious take on James Franco’s life,” Roberts said of the movie. “It’s all of these stories interwoven about these young kids growing up in Palo Alto. He plays a teacher and I play his student and we have kind of a weird relationship. It’s been a really fun experience working on that.”
As for Franco, Roberts says he’s an incredible guy.
“He’s amazing, we had a lot of fun working together. He’s such a great serious actor, but also a lot funnier than you would think in person.”
Jennifer Aniston is really good at pole dancing.
Emma Roberts, who costars with Aniston in the upcoming comedy We’re the Millers, knows firsthand just how sexy the Friends actress’ stripper moves are in the movie.
“She’s really good,” Roberts told us of Aniston’s We’re the Millers pole-dancing scenes earlier today. “I saw bits and pieces of it and she is amazing.”
On a scale of 1 to 10? “[She’s] like a 20,” Roberts laughed. “It was unreal! She looks really hot.”
In the funny flick, Jason Sudeikis stars as a pot dealer who assembles a fake family in order to traffic drugs to Mexico. Aniston plays his stripper wife and Roberts is their pretend daughter.
While we will be getting to see Aniston on the stripper pole, Roberts says Justin Theroux’s gal won’t be partaking in any fake drug-doing on screen.
