Emma was asked if she ever felt pressure to live up to her famous aunt’s titanic career. She said, “I never aspired to be her. I love her so much, I love her work, but I’m just doing my own thing.”

Emma also talked about her happiest childhood memories of her aunt, which included visiting her on the sets of Erin Brockovich and America’s Sweethearts.

“I’d write the wardrobe tags and organize the make-up brushes and watch how they did their continuity books. I would ask questions without a filter. This industry really is ‘learn as you go,’” she said.

Emma and Julia previously starred in the 2010 movie Valentine’s Day together.
