Emma Roberts may be learning “The Art of Getting By” in her new indie, which we got a first look at during MTV News’ Sneak Peak Week last week, but she’s now in the thick of filming her next flick, the romantic comedy “Celeste and Jesse Forever.”
The film centers around a divorcing couple (played by the always funny Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg) who are trying to work out the logistics of their relationship as they date other people. Emma plays a pop star who hires Rashida to revamp her image.
“Right now I’m doing a romantic comedy called ‘Celeste and Jesse Forever,’ and I’m obsessed with both of them,” she said of her funny co-stars. “And I’m playing a pop star… Everyone in the movie is hilarious; it’s a great group to get to work with.”
With so many songstresses to draw inspiration from, Emma admitted that she’s kind of trying to not use any real ones to base Riley on. “I’m kind of making my own; I’m kind of doing my own thing with her,” she said. “She’s very obnoxious, but still very likable.”
But that doesn’t mean she isn’t listening to a few tunes to get into the spirit of the part. “I just bought Lady Gaga’s new album, so I have that on repeat in my car,” she explained. ” ‘Born This Way’—I’m obsessed with.”
