Emma Roberts may be the niece of Oscar-winning actress Julia Roberts, but that's not how she lands roles. The young starlet says it's her own talent that gets her work in Hollywood, telling PopEater, "A lot of people think that, and they talk about nepotism which I think is so ridiculous considering it's obviously not true; because I've auditioned for so many things and never gotten the part. Also it's like, you know, maybe someone can get you one part, but they can't really get you ten parts."

Despite being in the same field of business, Emma does not feel any competition between her and her aunt. "I'm just doing my own thing. I don't really compare it to what my aunt does, but I do admire her and love all her movies," Emma said.

They both had roles in the movie Valentine's Day and when asked if she'd ever want to do a film with Julia again, Emma replied, "I would love to! I think it would be really fun for us."
