It’s hard to forge your own path in Hollywood. It’s even more difficult when your aunt is Julia Roberts, you rose to fame as a Nickelodeon star, and executives seem to think of you only in terms of one role: “the girl next door.” Emma Roberts faced all these challenges. But because of a single show (American Horror Story) and a single producer (Ryan Murphy) who saw untapped potential in her, Roberts was able to transition from child stardom into a wide-ranging career that has spanned more than two decades. That she balances rolling out new films—her latest, Space Cadet, comes out July 4—with her book club, Belletrist, and raising a son makes it all the more impressive. On this episode of Table for Two, the actress joins host Bruce Bozzi and discusses how Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop inspired her, the importance of financial independence, and her lifelong love of reading.
