A gay activist and magazine founder (James Franco) is saved from his homosexuality after turning to God, and later becomes a Christian pastor. The film is currently making its debut at film festivals so hopefully soon will see a theatrical release (most likely limited).

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).

Besides landing a role on one of TV’s most buzzed-about shows — and subsequently becoming the subject of one of the most popular GIFs to hit Tumblr — Emma Roberts knows how to work a red carpet. The 22-year-old, a Neutrogena Talent Ambassador, is a constant source of red carpet makeup inspiration with her lush lashes and bold eyeshadow looks.
We caught up with the “American Horror Story” actress to learn about her favorite holiday makeup looks, upcoming projects and, of course, what she really thinks of that “Surprise!” GIF (see below!).
Beauty High: Considering you’re constantly in and out of makeup chairs and on the red carpet, how do you keep your skin from having a major meltdown?
Emma Roberts: The best tip I know is to take off makeup after work. I work 12-15 hour days on set and it can definitely get wearing, so I use Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes and take off my makeup right when I get home and get into bed. As much as I’m exhausted, even if I get home at 2 a.m., I still drag myself out of bed to clean my face.
