Scream 4 actress Emma Roberts is making a name for herself. It helps that that name happens to be Roberts (as in Julia and Eric) but by all accounts the young Roberts seems to be working it solo. From early beginnings as a Nickelodeon kid, Roberts has gradually made her way into more grown-up roles, most recently positioning herself as a recurring face in the indie coming-of-age scene (see: It’s Kind of a Funny Story and The Art of Getting By). She’ll come of age once again next year in Adult World, a film about a recent college grad who realizes that trying to make it as a professional writer is kind of a shitty gig. Wait, can I be in that movie? At least make me a consultant. Or the guy who gets the coffee. I could really use the money here, man.
A word from Emma: “I think there are a lot of people out there who say the really low blow of “She’s just in the business because of her family”. I do it because I love to do it.”
