Emma was spotted arriving at LAX yesterday(June 15th) after coming back from her trip to New York. Check out the candids below!
Just to get it out of the way, yes 20-year old starlet Emma Roberts has connections. As the daughter of Eric Roberts and niece of auntie Julia, it almost seems predestined that Roberts chose the same profession as her famous family members (that and she’s a looker).
After making her name as a child studio darling in such kiddie fare as “Aquamarine” and “Nancy Drew,” Roberts opted for the indie route to make projects more in sync with her evolving sensibilities. These included more adult-orientated films such as “Lymelife,” “The Winning Season,” “It’s Kind of a Funny Story” and Dustin Lance Black’s upcoming directorial debut “What’s Wrong With Virginia? which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year.
Her latest indie project, the coming-of-age romantic comedy “The Art of Getting By,” hits select theaters via Fox Searchlight this Friday, June 17. indieWIRE caught up with a bubbly Roberts to discuss her career trajectory and what really got her hooked on acting.
You took a bit of a risk in tackling your first indie feature back in 2008 with “Lymelife.” What made you want to switch gears after mostly appearing in studio family fare?
That was one of those things that I went in for so randomly. I got the script and I just thought it was really interesting and cool. I had done nothing like it so I just thought, why not go for it, even though I wasn’t sure people were ready to see me this way? It was such a fun experience getting to play someone totally different from anything I had done. That’s one of my favorite movies I have done, I think.
