Having Hollywood star Julia Roberts as your aunt could be daunting for any upcoming actor, but Emma Roberts is unfazed. The 20-year-old says, “She (Julia Roberts) is really easygoing and loving. I don’t really ask for her advice, only because I haven’t really needed any so far. I just kind of learned how to handle things myself.”

Roberts has been on a whirlwind tour worldwide, promoting her latest movie, Scream 4, the fourth installment of the popular horror series, releasing worldwide on Friday. Emma says, “Scream was one of my favourites. So to be part of it is surreal. I was probably 14 or 15 when I saw the first one and I never felt that I would be in the fourth one just five years later. I mean that’s just crazy.”

Her experience of working with her co-stars was equally pleasant. “It’s amazing that this is her (lead actor Neve Campbell’s) fourth Scream movie but she’s still so fresh and looks the same as she did in the first one and I’m like, “What kind of face wash do you use?” she laughs, adding “I thought it would be amazing to work with Wes Craven (director), Neve Campbell, David Arquette and Courteney Cox. I read the script and it sounded really fun. Lots of blood, lots of death.”

Like her aunt, who recently visited India for her movie Eat, Pray, Love, Emma too, “would love to visit India.” Is the young actor trying to move away from teen flicks with this movie? “I can still play a high school student if I want, or I can play older. I don’t have to limit myself right now, ” she says.
