As a young actress, Emma Roberts has a lot of decisions to make to ensure her career turns out just the way she wants it. Luckily, she’s smart enough to realize that if she parties too much, or takes advantage of her fame, it could all be lost in an instant. Just look what happened to Lindsay Lohan!
And speaking of Lindsay, Emma had some not-so-positive comments to say about her when doing a recent interview with Moviehole.net. She spoke with them about her career path, and who she looks up to in Hollywood.
Emma got her start on a Nickelodeon show called Unfabulous. She then went on to star in Nancy Drew, which put her on the map. But now, at age 17, she wants to do more grown-up roles.
She says, "I just think it’s very thin ice you’re walking on, to make the transition from child actor to adolescence. Because so many people just mess it up, and they do things that are so outrageous.”
So we’re guessing Lindsay isn’t her role model?? Emma went on to tell Moviehole, "Anne Hathaway - the fact she was in The Princess Diaries, you’d never think about that. Whereas, like, Lindsay Lohan, you still know that she was in Freaky Friday and The Parent Trap, and it’s hard to take her seriously.
"So that’s why I really like Anne Hathaway, she is a great example. I think she’s been nominated for so many awards this year. And the fact that she starred in a Disney movie when she was in her teens - a lot of people don’t even know that, I don’t think."
Well, at least Emma is realizing the importance of staying professional, and not turning out like Lindsay. She could very well be the next generation’s Anne Hathaway.
