Trivia and Quotes

  • Trivia

  • Quotes

    • Emma: (on being compared to her Aunt Julia) It's gotten less and less. People do mention it but I don't really get the comparisons as much, which is nice because I think I've carved out my own audience.

    • Emma: I love New York, movies about New York and that take place in New York so for me this was just a dream come true. It's definitely difficult shooting in New York just because there are so many elements involved. Shooting on the street is always the hardest thing.

    • Emma: (on what attracted her to the film It's Kind of a Funny Story) It wasn't all sad, and it wasn't all funny, which I think is how it is in real life. When people are suffering with these problems in the real world, they want to be happy, and they want to laugh. I think that's what I really liked about the script.

    • Emma: (on her first ever sex scene in the film Lymelife) We all kind of got to set and we knew we were going to have to do that scene and so we were just kind of like, hey, what's up, whatever. The set was closed, so it wasn't a big deal. It was me and Rory and Derick and then the camera guy; we rehearsed it and, yeah, it was awkward, but then by the time we got to doing close-ups and stuff we were already used to the scene and just wanted to get it over with.

    • Emma: I'm enrolled right now in the School of Life. I deferred from Sarah Lawrence[small college in New York], so I think I'm going to try to find time to go there. But for now, no. I read all the time, though. I read a book a week. I try to keep my mind working.

    • Emma: (on acting in indie films) And I love independents, just because – you know, iyou and the director are the ones creating your character. It's not the studio, the producers, everyone telling you what to do and how to do things. It's just you and the director, and just making it real.

    • Emma: (at age 14 on what she wanted her next role to be) Right now, I would really like to play a mean girl in a movie, because so far, I have played a really nice girl or the dork. I think that would be fun and different to do. My ideal co-star would probably be Matt Damon!

    • Emma: (on being the niece of a famous actress) No, I mean, I don't feel pressured or anything like that. I don't really ask for her advice, only because I haven't really needed any so far. Everything's good! I just kinda learned how to handle things myself. And my family and friends give me advice.

    • Emma: (on being a part of the Scream film franchise) It's amazing, it's one of those things that if you had told me a year ago or two years ago that I'd be a part of it, I wouldn't believe you, because it's such an unbelievable thing. And I think it's such a perfect time for a reboot for the franchise, and I think the young cast they got together is really interesting and unique, but also makes sense.

    • Emma: (on what she likes to do when she is feeling down) I always, well, see movies like comedies, or even movies -- if they're sad...at least make you feel like you're not alone in that. That's always great. Also, just being around friends always cheers you up. With my friends, they're always on the go and happy and all over the place, so that's always fun.

    • Emma (on her first "Hollywood" moment): I guess after my television show started airing, and I would be walking around the mall or just out with friends, and girls would come up to me and be like, 'Oh my God, we love your show, we love this!' And I would look around still, and be like, 'Are they really talking to me?'

    • Emma: I think Julia [Roberts] and I have the same smile, but I don't think I look like her at all.

    • Emma: I love Hollywood in the '30s, '40s, and '50s. Everyone was beautiful, and there was just something so carefree. Plus, they dressed so cool and glamorous! I wish Hollywood was still like that.

    • Emma: It's a honor to play Nancy Drew! No matter what generation it is, she kind of just fits right in, and she's cool.

    • Emma: If I'm not an actress, I wanna study law or fashion.

  • I like her a hole lot better than Miley Cyrus

    9.0
    Emma Roberts has something that Miley Cyrus does not and that is she can act better than her and she can sing better than her.Out side of her Nickelodean show she actually does play a hell of a lot more better roles in her movies. I thought she played a good psycho killer in Scream 4. and she doesn't seem to think that the whole world revolves around her as much as Miley Cyrus does. she is more real than some the other actors i have seen on these shows. She is far more beautiful than Miley.moreless
