Emma Roberts has played some total tough girl parts from “Scream Queens” to snarky street urchin in “We’re the Millers.” But she’s the polar opposite in real life, she reveals in a new Allure interview. Outside the spotlight, she’s a hair down, no makeup, jeans and tee-shirt kind of person.
Roberts, the niece of Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts, says she drew the line on bullying when little sister Grace drew some social media heat because of her.
The 24-year-old actress says Grace begged her to stop posting photos because trolls were calling her ugly.
“I’ve met some of the most beautiful people in the world, who have been some of the most awful people,” Emma says.
“I’m getting choked up talking about it; I thought, Here’s my little sister, and people are calling her ugly…”
So, she decided to put herself out in unretouched photographs to show behind the Photoshopping and Facetune, she’s a real person with imperfections just like everybody else.
“I also wanted to show people: Yes, there is an Emma Roberts, but there is also Emma!” Meaning, “Not red carpet. My hair down. Basically no makeup.”
Emma also says she has no intention of getting breast implants or other cosmetic surgery.
“I’m a small-B boob. I can’t even fit into Victoria’s Secret bras; they’re all too big! So I’m standing up for the small-busted girls.”
While she’s not above the hair, make-up, heels and mini-dresses, she says there may come a time when she wants to step behind the camera to write or direct.
“I kind of want to show up to work one day and not care what I look like. It would be nice to just slip away for a little bit,” she says.
These days, she says, she can live in her own skin.
“I never felt more comfortable with myself since I turned 24,” she explains. Her birthday is in February. “I feel like I’ve crossed the bridge into being a woman.”
There’s no doubt about that. Just check out her stunning photos and the video below. Let us know your thoughts and be sure to follow IM on Twitter for the latest celebrity news.
