With a handful of movies, and a few television spots, under Emma Roberts at an early age of eighteen has already found a place in Hollywood. In spite of that she still feels tremendous pressure in order to establish her own identity setting aside her relationship with her aunt Julia Roberts.
In the April issue of Teen Vogue Emma said, “Some people look at me and think, 'She's just Julia Roberts ' niece,'" "I'm not in competition with her; she's one of the biggest movie stars in the world! I'm just doing what I love to do and having fun with it.”
In the short span of her career Emma has made a name for herself by proving her acting acumen in films like "Nancy Drew", "Hotel for Dogs," and "Aquamarine." Her latest project, "Lymelife," is one the dream projects of young actress like her.
Co-starring Cynthia Nixon, Alec Baldwin, and Timothy Hutton, "Lymelife" is a drama about two families who fall apart when unstable relationships, real estate troubles and Lyme disease converge in suburban Long Island during late 1970s.
Emma continued, "I wanted to do something smaller and edgier, something that would show I really am an actress," "[The film is] 'American Beauty' meets 'The Ice Storm.'"
While accepting several mature roles, Emma is still a teenager and is quite prone to teen crushes, noting that she is looking for a musician.
She continued, "I used to have a crush on Nick [Jonas], but he's kind of making his rounds in Hollywood, and I don't know if I like that."
