Despite Emma Roberts’ best efforts to carve her own swath through Hollywood rather than capitalize on her famous DNA, you just can’t look at her large, gleaming, slightly lopsided smile and not be reminded of her aunt Julia. The younger Roberts credits her aunt with sparking her desire to act by bringing her to movie sets when she was little; Emma’s first (uncredited) role, in fact, was as an extra in 2001’s America’s Sweethearts. “I was always running around to the makeup trailer and the wardrobe trailer, trying on clothes, and letting people do my hair,” she says. “I loved it.”
Still, the 20-year-old, whose parents, actor Eric Roberts and teacher Kelly Cunningham, split when she was an infant, names two different leading ladies as her role models. “Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Hudson have made names for themselves regardless of the fact that their parents were famous,” she says. “I’d like to have a career like that too.”

I just started using Latisse! Everyone was telling me about it so I went to my eye doctor to find out more. I was scared at first because I read it could change your eye color, but I decided to try it. I’m literally two days into it and keep checking my lashes in the mirror to see if they’ve grown!
Skin care-wise, I’ve just been using Pond’s Cold Cream—it’s a heavy, rich, really saturated cream that I think my grandma probably used when she was my age, but you can’t mess with the classics! It works.
I also like misting my face with rose water in morning. It’s so refreshing! It’s moisturizing and great for the winter when my skin gets really dry.
