Emma Roberts to 'Elle Canda': 'It's Hard to Find Authentic People to Keep In Your Life'

Emma Roberts is colorful and cute on the cover of Elle Canada‘s June 2014 issue.

Here’s what the 23-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On finding authentic people to be friends with: “I had friends for 10 years that I had a falling out with and now don’t speak to. It’s hard in your early 20s because everyone’s going on their own path and friendships just fall apart. I’ve known one of my best girlfriends since I was 11 and we still talk every day, but others just don’t last. I used to make fun of my parents for not having friends. Now I see why! It’s hard to find authentic people to keep in your life.”

On if her Aunt Julia Roberts gave her acting advice: “No. No one said anything to me about acting because they hoped it would just be a phase. But I kept doing it!”

On having a clear 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.’”

    She’s the worst actress ever ! and i don’t know why is she relevant ?

  • gg

    wow photoshop ok.
    photos do not even look like her anymore.

  • hi

    yeah too much photoshop..doesn’t look like her.

  • Tyla

    I really like this interview she gave. She seems way more down to earth to me now and I actually like her now. Just watched We’re the Millers the other night, too. It’s so refreshing when you see that stars are just everyday people and go through the same struggles you yourself go through.

  • AshleyLove

    Plain jane, even made up. Man beating slvt.

  • Jaime

    No amount of PR will ever make me like a boyfriend beater. Plus I know people that have met her in real life and they say she is very rude and stuck up. Highly doubt she is down to earth.

  • Pretty Ka

    @Tyla: I second that :-)

  • Naty

    @Jaime: I agree with you. I used to like her until she beat her boyfriend. I have zero respect for people who use violence against another person, whether you’re a woman or a man.

  • spirit7

    Man, give her a break . She’s young and learning. You don’t know the circumstances. I think she looks great on the mag cover.

  • Jaime


    Too bad people don’t have that attitude with young men that do the same thing..she gets by because shes a woman and white.

  • OMG you’re hypocrites.

    @AshleyLove: And this comes from you, a known FIST BROWN stan. LOOOOL. An a s s who beat and chocked his girlfriend till she was unconscious. And @Jaime: I guess you’re also a FIST BROWN stan. Woman beater fans like you are DISGUSTING.
