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.

Emma Roberts & Rory Culkin featured in Nylon Mag. Emma on Nickelodeon: 'I loved that part of my life. & A lot of people that were on Disney or Nickelodeon bash it afterwards. And I just think, That’s what got you your start! And also, from my experience, it was so fun. It was the calm before the storm..
..If you make the transition [as an actor] in the same way that you’re transitioning in real life, you’ll be fine. It’s when you’re 16 and you’re trying to play a 20-year-old hitchhiking stripper that people are gonna give you a hard time.'
Emma Roberts featured in Seventeen: 'Sometimes when I’m going to sleep, I think, ‘Oh God, my future husband is out there somewhere &I might know him, or I might not, and I wonder what he’s doing and I wonder if he knows me.’ I just always think that’s so fascinating, that even when you were two years old, your future husband was out there somewhere.. I like to go to parties if I know..
..who’s going to be there, and if it’s people I want to be with. I don’t just go to go. And I always drive myself, because I hate being stuck places, there’s nothing worse that going out & then being stuck! ..I never ask boys’ opinions on clothes, ever. I really think, unless you think the guy has style, don’t ask. So I only ask my girl friends. I don’t trust guys’ opinions on style!
Boys these days don’t really pursue girls. I think they sit back and let girls come to them. And I don’t understand how, if you have feelings for someone, you don’t want to pursue her, and make her feel great about herself!'
