Emma Roberts & Rory Culkin Cover 'Nylon' May 2011
Here’s what the Scream 4 co-stars had to share:
Emma on her Nickelodeon years: “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.”
Rory on the choice between boxing and music: “Boxing is a little more mindless and takes me away from everything. Music can do that, too, but it’s another art form, you know what I mean? It’s something to be passionate about. Whereas boxing is like, I wanna kick some ass and get my ass kicked. It’s awesome.”
Rory on his film roles up until now: “I’ve been sort of scared of certain roles in the past, almost to the point of being kind of snobbish… Now I’m just a lot more open to things – I’m starting to feel the need to exercise my acting and leave my comfort zone. I think Scream is an example of that.”
Emma on Glee: “I love that Gwyneth Paltrow‘s on Glee. That’s something you would never think she’d do. And the fact that she just thought, I’m gonna let loose and do this – that’s so cool!”
