Stylish Emma Roberts interview with WWD. On her appeal: I think I’m relatable. I am really normal for someone who is in the business. I am definitely not like the hottest young actress, the most beautiful or whatever. I have my own thing going. On fashion: I would like to be recognized for my style, because I love clothes. Audrey Hepburn is amazing because she was so beautiful, but at the same time, she wasn’t a big-boobed bombshell.
Sienna Miller always looks so cool. I want to do something in fashion that wouldn’t be cheesy. I wouldn’t do, like, Emma Roberts for Target. I’d want do to something more like the Olsen twins did, Elizabeth and James and The Row, something that is really cool, wearable and still unique.
On Valentine’s Day: It’s just a good thing to have in my pocket. This was a really fun, commercial, big-studio movie that is definitely good for exposure. It gave me an amazing opportunity to work with big people like Garry Marshall.
Dustin Lance Black, director of What’s Wrong With Virginia, praised her: Some of these young actors do feel like they have lived inside of the young-actor bubble, and they’re very Nickelodeon or Disney. That’s not Emma. You can put stuff in front of her that is layered, and she gets it. She might even teach you a few things about it.
On acting: A month ago probably, I was like, ‘I love doing this,’ and then I was like, ‘Oh, this is my job.’ I always think of it as fun. When I’m not working, I think, ‘Maybe I’ll get an internship and do a real thing. Then, I’m like, ‘This is the real thing.’’ Photo Credit: Guy Aroch
