Check out an interview Emma did with GQ.com where she talks wanting to be Kim Kardashians’ butt…
In Adult World, Emma Roberts—you know, Julia’s niece—plays Amy, an aspiring poet who’s fresh out of college and frustrated by the lack of instant literary fame and success she deserves expected and her day-job at a sex-toy shop. In the real world, she’s sharp, funny, and so over texting. We rang up Roberts to talk about the film and why you should just pick up the phone already.
Adult World tackles all those millennial stereotypes that are out there.
There’s just so many things in the movie that are so true! It’s my generation: you grow up in this world of everyone’s told that they’re going to change the world and very few actually can and do. And, also, in this weird world of the Internet and Instagram and Twitter and texting—it really has a weird effect on people that we’re just starting to see. I loved that Adult World kind of assessed all of that.
What about Amy did you identify with most?
I mean, I’m coming out of it, but I definitely identified with being that age where you’re not an adult and you’re not a kid. I just turned 23 Tuesday and I was driving and thought, So what do people do when they’re 23, like what is it? Amy kind of has that thing, she knows exactly what she’s doing and where she’s going and then it slowly kind of falls to like, Wait what am I really going to do?
Tribeca Film has dated “Palo Alto,” the debut feature from Gia Coppola, for a May 9 opening in New York and Los Angeles, followed by a national release.
“Palo Alto” screened last year in the Venice, Telluride and Toronto film festivals, and Tribeca Film picked up U.S. rights in December. Coppola is the granddaughter of Francis Ford Coppola and niece of Sofia Coppola.
The film is a James Franco and Rabbit Bandini Prods. presentation, produced by Sebastian Pardo, Adriana Rotaru, Miles Levy and Vince Jolivette and based on several linked stories in James Franco’s book of the same name about a group of high school students.
Franco stars with Emma Roberts, Jack Kilmer, Nat Wolff, Zoe Levin, Chris Messina and Val Kilmer with three storylines — a young woman (Roberts) caught between flirting with her soccer coach (Franco) and a relationship with a teen stoner (Jack Kilmer); another about a promiscuous young woman (Levin); and a third about the stoner and his possibly dangerous best friend (Wolff).
Emma Roberts has joined the cast of Sam Worthington‘s upcoming film For The Dogs, JustJared.com can exclusively confirm.
The 22-year-old actress would take on the role of a college girl named Ella Hatto, replacing Hailee Steinfeld in the Jonathan Mostow directed thriller, which starts shooting in March/April in Germany.

As Hollywood gears up for tomorrow’s big Golden Globe Awards, many stars are putting the finishing touches on the dress they chose months ago—but not Emma Roberts! The recently engaged star is playing red carpet roulette with her gown this year.
“Some of our clients are coming in the day of the Globes so we are going to be deciding that day, stylist Meritt Elliott of Current/Elliott told InStyle exclusively at Diane von Furstenberg’s star-studded Journey of a Dress exhibition premiere in Los Angeles on Friday night. “We will be accessorizing beforehand, tailoring during hair and makeup and then come up with the entire look that day. It is actually kind of exciting as well.”
With Roberts busy schedule, she’ll be one of the aforementioned stars that will be making a game time decision with her dress. “Emma Roberts is going to wait until the day of Globes because she is in the middle of filming American Horror Story and she is flying in just for the day,” chimed in stylist Emily Current. “It is an opportunity to put your formal wear on and embrace it.”
Dying to see which dress she chooses? So are we! Tune in Sunday, January 12th at 8:00PM ET/5:00PM PT on NBC for the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards and stay tuned to InStyle as we cover the event live.
