Have we ever done back-to-back Roberts family posts before? Let’s do it and see if we can’t start a family fight, shall we?
Emma gets ELLE and winds up styled better than we’ve ever seen her. No one is surprised by this turn of events.
“American Horror Story” star Emma Roberts covers the June 2014 issue of ELLE Canada magazine photographed by Max Abadian and styled by Isabel Dupre.
On her teenage years: “It’s funny…I turned 23 this year and I don’t think I realized I wasn’t a teenager until then. It feels like a week ago. My teenage years were fun and interesting because I had such a different life from most people. I was working, and I spent so much time in New York. The city was amazing, and it was the beginning of my adult life. I’m feeling nostalgic now! But my little sister just turned 13—she has become this angsty teenager who has such attitude toward me and my mom. I feel so bad. Now I know what my mom went through with me! My little sister will be like, ‘With my friends—bye.’ I’m like, ‘Wait, I’m cool! Talk to me on the phone!’”
On not getting advice from aunt Julia Roberts: “No. No one said anything to me about acting because they hoped it would just be a phase. But I kept doing it!”
On her sense of self: “I’ve always been very opinionated. That’s what comes from being raised by a single mother. My mom always instilled confidence and told me to have an opinion and to educate myself. But I definitely have my days. I was crying yesterday because I jumped on the trampoline and sprained my foot and was feeling nervous about the shoot today and got some bad news. I was sitting with my foot up, icing it, and being so upset. Then I woke up today and was like, ‘Let’s do it differently.’ There are days when your hair is looking great and you feel determined—then the next day you’re like, ‘My horoscope’s bad, my hair’s bad, I don’t want to get out of bed.’”
It’s adorable when 23-year-olds talk about time and aging, isn’t it? Bless. “It feels like a week ago!” Oh shut up. It was a week ago. Also, her tale of hardship and trampolines was inspiring, no? We feel like we can conquer the world now, having read that.
Bear in mind that when we said she’s styled better than ever for this editorial, that doesn’t actually mean we think she look good. She just looks less bad than her usual style. Some of these getups are more than a little cray.
Were they going for “streetwalker” or are we just reading into it too much?
