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.”
Emma was spotted departing LAX today (December 22nd), would assume she is heading to NY to spend the holidays with family. Check out the candids below!
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.
Emma Roberts teamed up with The Coca-Cola Company and (RED) to launch (THRED), a free mobile game that’s not only fun to play, but also for a good cause. We chatted with the star about why raising awareness is important and how you can make a difference. Plus, she spilled about her holiday plans and what she has coming up in 2013.
Tell us about (THRED).
“I’m partnering with Coca-Cola and Red to help spread the message about the goal to deliver an AIDS-free generation by 2015. It’s this really cool game called (THRED), and it’s just really fun. It’s free to download, but you can buy ‘power-ups’ from $0.99 cents to $209.99, and that money goes to The Global Fund.”
Why did you decide to team up with Coca Cola and (THRED)?
“I think its really important. I want people to be aware of the AIDS issue and I want them to know they can make a difference. I’m a young woman, and a lot of young people aren’t informed. It’s cool that I can get the word out on Twitter and through interviews, and just among my group of friends.”
So is the game fun to play?
“Yes! One of my favorite things is that Tiesto donated a track and I think he’s really cool. It’s just really fun. The game is very addictive.”
Emma answered fan questions through twitter today with the help of @stylewatchmag to promote (THRED), which is a new mobile game that aims to help end mother-to-child HIV transmission by 2015. Check out a promoshoot below plus a Instagram photo Emma shared of her answering some of your questions!
