As students, we all have to do homework. But there would be someone who never wants to finish it. Will you be interested in that one? Will you try to get closer to that one for the reason that you two may have some similarities? And then you fall in love with each other? This is actually the story The Art of Getting By about.
The film is released on June 17 in some places in the USA. The heroine is Emma Roberts. Actually she is the niece of Julia Roberts. She has been in touch with her aunt till now. She also states that she enjoys being with her aunt and her comments on Julia is “I admire her very much and she is a great mother.”
For the family background, she got the chance of costarring with Johnny Depp in Blow when she was 9. Depp signed “to one of the most beautiful women I‘ve ever seen” for young Emma. Because Emma has Julia as her aunt so she never realized she was that lucky until growing up. One more interesting thing is that as Blow is rated R so she finally got the chance to watch the film at the age of 17.
With a superstar aunt in Hollywood, Emma is always compared with Julia. “I really don’t want to be her, I just want to be myself. If I have something in common with my aunt, that’s our smiles.” Emma emphasized again and again when facing questions in relation with her famous aunt.
Emma is rather different for she is only 20 and she has a sweet voice. To some extent, she is the typical American sweetie for she loves popular culture so much. She enjoys the film Juno, appreciates Lady Gaga and Justin Biber and is keen on reading Twilight series.
But she also knows that she would never live a life like an ordinary girl.” You have to be responsible for yourself. You just set the example for the teenagers. And the paparazzi are always waiting for your mistakes. ” she said so. With her gentle smiles and sweet voice, outstanding acting skills and good looking, we may say we will remember her by her works not by the title “Julia‘s niece”.
