Emma Roberts loved Julia’s film sets

Emma Roberts loved hanging around the film set of ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ because of all the “cute boys”. 

The budding actress used to hang around with her A-list auntie Julia Roberts when she was making films, her favourite being the 2001 hunk-packed heist movie, which starred Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon. 

Emma, 20, said: “‘Ocean’s Eleven’ was really fun because it had all the cute boys in it. I just loved being on the sets. People would tell me, ‘Emma it’s late. You have to go home.’ And I’d say, ‘no, I want to stay.’ 

“I saw how all of the different departments worked and that showed me what it would be like.” 

Emma won her first role in a film at nine, starring alongside Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz in ‘Blow’ and has since been getting steady work, with her breakthrough coming as a teen detective in ‘Nancy Drew’, while more recently appeared in ‘The Art of Getting By’ and ‘Scream 4’. 

Emma’s father is Eric Roberts – who is also an actor – but she preferred to hang around with her aunt, because she made more “fun” movies. 

She added in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: “When I was a child I didn’t really go and see him on movie sets because he was doing a lot of more adult movies. They were kind of inappropriate for me because I was a lot younger, whereas my aunt Julia was doing younger, fun movies, so I will visit her more.”
