A lot of people think they know Barbie and everyone has an opinion of her but I have to say she is quite the actress she was on time for our shoot and super wiling to get wild! She expressed to me her interest in doing something different “being shot in a way people had never seen her before” I have nothing but amazing things to say about her and contrary to popular opinion she is not a diva at all! Her make up and styling was done by Francesca Eastwood also a big thanks to Emma Roberts for making a cameo in The world of Barbie. Emma and Barbie were old friends they have been wanting to work together for a long time!

Emma Roberts is going racy in her next role as a sex shop employee.
Roberts, 20, told USA TODAY that she is about to head off to New York to begin shooting the dark comedy Adult World, about a college graduate who has no better employment prospects than selling explicit adult products.
“It’s a quirky coming-of-age story,” says Roberts, speaking from the Sundance Film Festival. “My character is very smart, but the economy is very bad.”
“So she works at a porn store,” the Nancy Drew and Hotel for Dogs star shrugs.
Her character continues her positive outlook on the world despite the rather seedy surroundings.
“It’s an interesting backdrop because when you’re a young person you’re always looking for inspiration,” says Roberts. “But then you find yourself asking, ‘How did I end up here?’ “
