Emma Roberts Has Serious Stage Fright

Emma Roberts Has Serious Stage Fright

Emma Roberts may be able to hold her own against Alec Baldwin and Shirley MacLaine, but did you know that she has stage fright?

The 19-year-old actress opened up to the L.A. Times about her new movie, Valentine’s Day, her tremendous stage fright and why the holiday really doesn’t like her. Check it:

On why she chose to be a part of Valentine’s Day: “I’m a huge fan of movies like Love Actually and He’s Just Not That Into You, and this is very similar to both. So I thought it would be a really fun movie that I’d want to go see. I don’t think [the genre] is accurate of everyday life, but, at the same time, everyone’s had that one romance that is kind of like the one in the movies and that’s why it’s so special.”

On her stage fright: “Doing a music video is so embarrassing. I don’t think I’ll be doing [another] album unless I write it for someone else. I have stage fright. I can’t ever do theater because I would pee my pants. It’s way too nerve-racking. There’s a comfort in being able to mess up when you’re on a movie set.”

On not loving Valentine’s Day: “I’ve never had a boyfriend on Valentine’s Day. I’ve never been on a date on Valentine’s Day. I usually hang out with my girlfriends and we go and get sushi and see a movie and like, do nothing. I’ll be probably just with friends. I’m not going to do the ‘significant other’ thing . . . Valentine’s Day doesn’t like me.”

TELL JJJ: Did you go see Valentine’s Day? What did you love about it?

    I saw “Valentines Day” twice & I loved it. The move is so funny. The whole cast is great, I recommend that you see it. Jennifer Garner made me laugh so much, but so did Queen Latifa & Taylor Swift – all very funny parts & played very well.
