Emma Roberts Video Interview On ‘Scream 4,’ Her Aunt Julia Roberts
Emma Roberts, the famous niece of Julia Roberts, stars in the horror sequel Scream 4. The film also stars Courtney Cox, David Arquette and Neve Campbell, who made the series famous in the 90s. The crew all supported the film’s new generation of young actors, including Roberts. “I’m such a fan of Courtney. I was such a Friends fanatic. She’s so fun,” Roberts told Uinterview exclusively. “She has a great sense of humor and she’s so great to be around. I actually didn’t have that many scenes with her which I was bummed out about, but she was really, really cool. But [Neve] and I had a lot of scenes together.”
While Roberts is certainly a film star in her own right, she can still relate to her famous Aunt Julia on a more regular level. “It’s really about just spending time together as family, not as like ‘We’re both actresses, let’s talk about acting,’ ” she told Uinterview. “So it’s nice that we can separate the two and just hang out as family and not worry about work.”
Definitely. I mean, there are times where, you know, there is that energy and that adrenaline rush and you are scared. And then there are times where you’re kind of like, 'Okay, I’ve been standing around set for hours and hours and hours, and I’m kind of bored of this.' And you have to really get the energy up and get there because otherwise no one’s going to believe it. So it’s, yeah, you’ve gotta really just go for it.
Well, the blood that they use in Scream is actually like made for Scream. Like it’s this special blood that Wes [Craven] has approved and has been made for the movie, and it looks so real. And it’s weird, it smells like maple syrup. It’s the weirdest thing. You’re covered in this blood, it’s sticky and you smell like pancakes, and it’s very weird. I tasted it, like I had it on me and I licked some of it and let me tell you, it tastes disgusting, so I would not recommend that, if for some odd reason you’re ever in the position, don’t ever eat the fake blood. No.
I’m such a fan of Courtney. I was such a Friends fanatic. She’s so fun. She has such a great sense of humor, and she’s so great to be around. I actually didn’t have that many scenes with her, which I was bummed out about, but yeah she was really, really cool. Neve, her and I had a lot of scenes together because I play Sydney Prescott’s cousin in the movie, her name’s Jill, and her and I just had fun together. I mean, Neve is just one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met. She’s so nice and made me feel so comfortable and was so there for me, you know, on set or off set. And David is just, he’s hilarious. He hung out with all of us kids the whole time, and we just had the best time with him. He’s so, so nice.
You know, we don’t really talk about it very much, I have to say, it’s funny, when I see her because we’re both so busy. It’s really about just spending time together as family not as like, we’re both actresses, let’s talk about acting. So, it’s nice that we can separate the two and just hang out as family and not worry about work.
