Moviehole.net spoke with Emma Roberts in a Q&A, asking the 20-year-old actress and Julia Roberts’ niece the challenges she faces making the transition from adolescence to adulthood in her acting career. “I just think it’s very thin ice you’re walking on, to make the transition from child actor to adolescence,” Roberts said. “Because – you know, so many people just mess it up, and they do things that are so outrageous. And it’s like – the whole point is, like, Anne Hathaway. The fact that was is ‘Princess Diaries’, like, you’d never think about that. Whereas, like, Lindsay Lohan, you still know that she was in ‘Freaky Friday’ and ‘The Parent Trap’, and it’s hard to take her seriously. So that’s why I really like – like, Anne Hathaway is a great example. I think she’s been nominated for so many awards this year. And the fact that she starred in a Disney movie when she was in her teens – a lot of people don’t even know that, I don’t think.” Read more.

We just hang out together and relax. We go out for dinner, we eat, we cook. We knit together, we hang out with the twins. You know, normal stuff.”
