Emma Roberts PopEater interview: Did you go to school? I went to school till seventh grade, then I was home schooled through high school. Was it strange to play a high school student? I mean, no because high school is such a big part of American culture, it’s so prevalent in music and TV and movies, I think I get the gist! Do you feel cheated that you didn’t go?
No, I got to travel all over the world and work with really cool people so I think that was an education in itself. Were you popular in school? I was popular, I had a lot of friends but I wasn’t like a mean girl. I was also always the shortest person in my class. I’m 5’2″. Did everyone accuse you of nepotism because of your dad and aunt? A lot of people think that and they talk about nepotism which I think is so ridiculous considering it’s obviously not true, because I’ve auditioned for so many things and never gotten the part. Also it’s like, you know, maybe someone
can get you one part but they can’t really get you ten parts. You know you’ll be accused of nepotism if it happens. Oh well, if someone wants to say that to my face. If someone blogs about it I’ll be annoyed. I think it’s so funny people will blog stuff but they won’t say it to your face. I would actually have more respect for them if they said it to my face, then I would probably not say anything back.
Are you immune to comments online or do you still get upset? I don’t read them anymore but obviously you know that they’re there. For me I can’t let it bother me because for me anyone hiding behind a computer is kind of irrelevant. Or a loser. Uh uh. Also I can handle it, but there are some people with the whole..
..bullying thing can’t handle it and do horrible things to themselves. I feel a kindred spirit with you. I have thick eyebrows too. I had a total unibrow. Literally I had a total Frida Kahlo unibrow. When I was younger I got made fun of. I think I was 12, I was on a TV show and afterwards kids in school were like, ‘You have a unibrow,’ and I remember I was so embarrassed. It’s funny because now I love thick eyebrows. I think they’re so beautiful, not a unibrow. Now I just make sure to wax in the middle.
