Emma Roberts: College Applications Are In!

Emma Roberts: College Applications Are In!

Emma Roberts isn’t your typical teen actress and she proves it in a recent interview with USA Today.

The 17-year-old performer has college plans, wishes to win an Oscar, and loves to read…a lot. Here’s what she had to say:

On why she made Hotel For Dogs: “I have a little sister who’s 8, and I wanted to do something she’d have fun watching. She doesn’t act. She’s in school. Hotel for Dogs (came) out on her birthday, so she’s excited.”

On her college ambitions: “I just sent out all my applications. I only applied to three schools because I figure if I don’t get into my top choice, I’ll defer and apply again. I want to study photography, literature and writing.”

On her favorite reads: “Right now I’m reading ‘A Great and Terrible Beauty’ by Libba Bray. I liked the title and it’s a period book. And ‘Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim’ by David Sedaris. I love Chuck Palahniuk as an author. I love ‘Invisible Monsters’. It’s really twisted but really cool. I think he’s amazing. My favorite book is ‘The Perks of Being a Wallflower’ by Stephen Chbosky.”

On her personal wish list: “I’d love to have a really nice boyfriend. I would love to have been to Paris. I’ve never been. I’d love to have my own photography coffee-table book. And I’d love to get my license. It’s been a catastrophe. I got my permit the first try and went to get my license and failed. Then my permit expired. I just got my permit again a couple of weeks ago, so hopefully I’ll get my license soon.”

On her famous aunt, Julia Roberts: “[The most annoying question is] probably what advice she gives me. At the end of the day, she’s my aunt, not Julia Roberts. I don’t go to her for advice about things. I’m seeing her after this, and I’m just going to go say hi and play with the kids and hang out. … It’s so much fun.”
