    “I’ve Lost More Jobs Than I’ve Gained”: Emma Roberts Talks About Opportunities She Lost Because Of Her Famous Family

    Emma Roberts has grown to be one of the finest actresses in Hollywood. Though she has been a ruthless target of the nepotism scrutiny, she has won several recognitions including the Golden Globe, and British Academy Award among others.

    In fact, she has also become a part of a campaign to change the narrative around “nepo kids” after facing a lot of issues as a star kid in the industry. However, she feels that she has lost some good projects because of her famous family background. Here’s what she said.

    Emma Roberts has had enough of nepotism scrutiny. The actress has been fighting it since the beginning of her career, which kicked off because she is related to Julia Roberts, her aunt. While many assume that it must have been a cake walk for the actress because of her connection, she claims otherwise.

    During an interview with Deadline, the actress said that she “never gotten a job” due to her famous family background, but has in fact “lost a couple” of them. Emma said “I’ve lost more jobs than I’ve gained from being in the business. People have opinions and sometimes maybe they’re not good opinions of people in your family. I’ve never gotten a job because of it, I know I definitely have lost a couple of jobs because of it”.

    Emma had her breakdown role on the Nickelodeon series ‘UnFabulous’ and later Emma and her aunt Julia both appeared in Garry Marshell’s 2010 assembled romantic comedy ‘Valentine’s Day‘.

    The ‘The American Horror Story’ actress was also called “Nepo Baby” on the feature of a New York-based magazine which was published in 2022. “It was a cheap shot to put all the celebrity kids on the cover of a magazine on babies’ bodies. It’s like maybe the ‘Nepo Baby’ conversation would’ve been a more interesting article written intelligently in Vanity Fair with nuance, but instead, it was kind of this viral hating-on-people thing,” she added.

    Moreover, Emma also called out the “sexist double standards of the industry”. She argued that people have created a perception about her as a product of nepotism. But it doesn’t mean it’s easy for her, as one has to prove themselves more to stop the hateful comments and outdo the expectations of people.

    “I think there’s two sides of the coin, you know. People like to say, ‘You have a leg up because you have family in the industry,’ but then the other side to that is, you know, you have to prove yourself more. Also, if people don’t have [a] good experience maybe with other people in your family, then you’ll never get the chance,” she said.
