Biography for Emma RobertsEmma Rose Roberts (born Feb. 10, 1991 (26 years ago)) is an American actress and singer. She is the daughter of actor Eric Roberts and therefore the niece of actress Julia Roberts.
Emma Roberts rose to prominence for her lead role as Addie Singer in the Nickelodeon TV series Unfabulous, a role for which Roberts garnered various awards and critical acclaim. Following the success of the show in sep. 2005 (12 years ago), she released her debut album, which also served as the show's soundtrack Unfabulous and More. Roberts then pursued a solo singing career by recording two songs for the soundtracks of Ice Princess and Aquamarine (in which Roberts starred as one of the leads). Roberts then began to focus on her acting career, the title character in the 2007 (10 years ago) movie Nancy Drew, and her voice-over debut in The Flight Before Christmas.
In 2008 (9 years ago) and 2009 (8 years ago) Roberts began to star in coming-of-age and young adult roles, including Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac and Lymelife. Roberts appeared in the 2009 (8 years ago) family movie Hotel For Dogs and The Winning Season. As of May 2009 (8 years ago), Roberts' upcoming movies include the drama/thriller Twelve and the horror movie Grimm. Roberts also signed onto star in Rodeo Girl and the Nancy Drew sequel, but both movies have recently been put on hold and have not entered production.
Early yearsRoberts was born in Rhinebeck, New York, USA. She is the daughter of actor Eric Roberts (who was born in Biloxi, Mississippi but raised in Atlanta, Georgia) and his then girlfriend Kelly Cunningham. Roberts is the stepdaughter of Eliza Roberts. Roberts has two stepsisters, Morgan Simons and Keaton Simons. She is the niece of actresses Julia Roberts and Lisa Roberts Gillan. Roberts said in an interview, "I've just always wanted to act. Ever since I was really little I've wanted to do it. But my mom didn't want to get me into it too young. So, it's just been something I've always wanted to do."
EducationRoberts attended Archer School for Girls in Brentwood, California from 2004-2005 for 7th and 8th grade. Roberts said in a 2007 (10 years ago) interview on her education that: "Oh yes, I have a tutor and we have three hours of school every day. That way I am caught up on my work and then when I am not doing school work I am shooting something or other." Roberts had shown interest in attending two colleges in New York City, Sarah Lawrence College and New York University.
Personal lifeRoberts has cited actress Anne Hathaway (44 walls) as a role model and has stated Rupert Grint is one of her favorite actors. She stated, "My most prized possession, though, is an autographed picture (wallpaper) of Rupert Grint, who plays Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter films" Roberts has also stated she is a big fan of Gwyneth Paltrow. "I've Netflixed all of the Gwyneth Paltrow (6 walls) movies. I'm a huge fan of hers. She's kind of my idol at the moment. I really like Kirsten Dunst. She did a lot of cool, fun teen movies, and she's also done some serious roles. I like her style, and I think she seems pretty interesting."
She is close friends with her Aquamarine co-star Joanna 'JoJo' Levesque and good friends with fellow Nickelodeon stars Devon Werkheiser and Jamie-Lynn Spears. Some of Roberts favorite books include Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin and the A-List novels. Some of her favorite books are A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim by David Sedaris. She also enjoys Chuck Palahniuk books, Invisible Monsters, and said her favorite book is The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky.
In her Apr. 2009 (8 years ago) Teen Vogue interview Roberts remarked, “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.” Roberts had sparked controversy for saying that, which drew the media attention. Roberts then began to feel bad about the comment so then at the 2009 (8 years ago) Kids' Choice Awards Roberts wrote Nick Jonas a hand written apology. The note read: "Nick, I love you. Sorry about the quote"
Roberts said that she and her Lymelife co-star Rory Culkin are "good friends", so their on-screen romance "wasn’t really that awkward. We talked about it before and that made it much easier. Rory is really a great guy. I mean, I was definitely nervous. I kind of felt uncomfortable, but at the same time I think it worked for the scene because it is supposed to be our first time, and we are supposed to not know what we are doing.”
On Jan. 15, 2009 (8 years ago) Roberts appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. She admitted, "I failed my driving test and then my permit expired. And then I failed my permit test when I retook it. I didn’t know you had to stop before going right on red, so I just swung around the corner really quickly.”
Roberts has also appeared as part of Teen Vogue’s Best Dressed list multiple times (including Jun. 2007 (10 years ago), sep. 2008 (9 years ago), dec. 2008 (9 years ago), Feb. 2009 (8 years ago), and Mar. 2009 (8 years ago)). She said that some of her favorite movies are: Juno and Little Miss Sunshine. Roberts said that some of her musical influences are Michelle Branch (7 walls), Skye Sweetnam, and The Veronicas.
