Below is an interview with US Weekly and a video with Hollywood Life of Emma promoting Seventeen’s Pretty Amazing contest, which she is one of the guest judges. Also a few twitter/instagram photos of Emma at Seventeen’s office have been added to the gallery(click on the image below to see more).
“If I’m having a really bad day, I always have a girlfriend — or even a guy friend — who I can call,” the actress, 21, told Us Weekly Wednesday while promoting Seventeen’s Pretty Amazing contest in NYC. “They’ll listen to me wallow for a minute and then be like, ‘OK, let’s stop. Everything’s great. Let’s figure out how to fix whatever’s bothering you.'”
“I’ve gone through times where you’re feeling low and you don’t reach out to people and you just keep wallowing in that, and I think that’s when things turn into a bigger deal than they need to be,” she explained. “I think it’s important to have people who will pull you out of that, whether it’s family or friends.”
The Scream 4 actress teamed up with Seventeen for its second annual Pretty Amazing contest, which asks young girls to share their stories of personal achievement for the chance to appear on the cover of the magazine’s October 2012 issue. The winner will also receive a $20,000 scholarship, courtesy of Neutrogena.
“It’s a cool contest because even the girls who don’t win, the fact that they took the time to sit down and think about something that’s great about themselves, I think takes a lot,” Roberts, who will help choose the winner, told Us. “A lot of people think that comes off as bragging and they want to [downplay their story]. So I think the fact that these girls are saying, ‘I did do something cool and I am good at this’ is really admirable.” (For more details on Roberts’ involvement in Seventeen’s Pretty Amazing contest click here.)
Roberts, who recently wrapped production on the dark comedy Adult World with John Cusack, will begin filming Empire State with Liam Hemsworth, 22, “in the next month or so.”
“It’s really cool — like an ’80s heist movie,” Roberts said of her new project. “I’m really excited about that. I play his love interest.”

“It’s crazy. I’ve never seen anything like it. First time I’ve ever seen it. He was great,” said Tricia Hand, who watched the film shoot from across the street.
“It puts Syracuse on the map, with our basketball team and the movies it makes us famous and it’s nice that they’re filming in our little community of Eastwood,” said Michelle Seitz who stopped and watched the filmmaking process.
The producer of the film is from Syracuse and told us to expect more movies to be shot in our area in the coming years.
