She made being strange both beautiful and cool. She's a trend setter without even trying. [About her acting idol, Winona Ryder]
(on accusations of nepotism) 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.
I want to do something in fashion that wouldn't be cheesy. I wouldn't do, like, Emma Roberts for Target.
I've Netflixed all of the Gwyneth Paltrow movies. I'm a huge fan of hers. She's kind of my idol at the moment. I really like Kirsten Dunst. She did a lot of cool, fun teen movies, and she's also done some serious roles. I like her style, and I think she seems pretty interesting -- on actors that inspire her.
I think there are a lot of people out there who say the really low blow of "She's just in the business because of her family". I do it because I love to do it. There have been a lot of parts I've been up for that I haven't gotten. I don't get everything handed to me like some people think. I mean, people say, "Oh, do you feel like you're living in Julia's shadow?" I don't at all, because I'm not trying to be her. I'm just being myself and doing what I want to do. I'm having a lot of fun, and I feel like I am making a name for myself, as well -- on being treated differently for being related to Julia Roberts.
My most prized possession, though, is an autographed picture of Rupert Grint, who plays "Ron Weasley" in the "Harry Potter" films.
I was so young, I didn't understand that I was working with one of the best actors, ever, until later [on working with Johnny Depp in Blow (2001)].
Was arrested in Canada for domestic violence against her boyfriend Evan Peters. He did not press any charges and Roberts was released after a few hours in jail. [July 2013].
Was in a relationship with Evan Peters from spring 2013 onwards, after meeting on the set of Adult World (2013). They became engaged on Christmas 2013, but ended the relationship on June 2014. They dated for a second time from August 2014 until May 2016.
Has a tattoo, the half Moon on her chest on the right side (below the armpits).
Favorite horror films are Halloween (1978) and The Ring (2002).
Was offered the role of Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad (2016), but turned it down to star in Scream Queens.
