Emma Roberts Reflects on First TV Kiss in 'Wild' Magazine Feature
Here’s what the 23-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On her first TV kiss: “His name was Raja and he played Jake Behari on my TV show Unfabulous. He was the cutest. I feel like I had so many of my firsts on TV and in movies before I did in real life—all of them actually. They were fake before they were real, which I think gave me an unrealistic view of how they should be.”
On joining the cast of American Horror Story: “I love Kathy Bates, and yeah, the show is very special. It’s like nothing I’ve ever done. To get to work with that caliber of actors is insane; I look up to Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, and Angela Bassett so much. We’re shooting in New Orleans, which I think really changed the dynamic. When you’re in L.A., you go to work and then you go home and you don’t really bond. Putting us all in New Orleans made us so much closer and made us depend on each other more. It created a little world down there for us, which I love. Last year, I was crying at the last episode.”
On making the transition from teen comedy to more serious roles: “I think it’s easy to transition from teen to adult in movies, I think it’s harder in real life. Someone asked me how old I was the other day and I was literally like, Oh I’m 19. And then I was like, Wait, I just lied I’m 23. I don’t know why I said that, sorry. He just looked at me like I was crazy. I forgot that I wasn’t 19, it was so weird. Now I know what they say, how life really speeds up at a certain point.”
