COVER STORY: EMMA ROBERTS + RORY CULKIN
hello young hollywood - meet your new class presidents.
If you’ve seen Scream 4, you know Emma Roberts and Rory Culkin have inherited a major pop culture legacy - and also made it their own. With positive attitudes, honest self-reflection, and gobs of talent (not to mention a stock pile of well-worn hoodies), the actors represent the latest diverse crop of emerging stars. Oh, and they’re also total goofballs - something you’ll see in these outtakes shot by editor-in-chief Marvin Scott Jarrett.Emma, on her Disney years:“I loved that part of my life. A lot of people that were on Disney or Nickelodeon bash it afterwards. And I just think, That’s what got you your start! And also, from my experience, it was so fun. It was the calm before the storm... if you make the transition [as an actor] in the same way that you’re transitioning in real life, you’ll be fine. It’s when you’re 16 and you’re trying to play a 20-year-old hitchhiking stripper that people are gonna give you a hard time.“Rory, on the choice between boxing and music. “Boxing is a little more mindless and takes me away from everything. Music can do that, too, but it’s another art form, you know what I mean? It’s something to be passionate about. Whereas boxing is like, I wanna kick some ass and get my ass kicked. It’s awesome.“On his film roles up until now. “I’ve been sort of scared of certain roles in the past, almost to the point of being kind of snobbish... Now I’m just a lot more open to things - I’m starting to feel the need to exercise my acting and leave my comfort zone. I think Scream is an example of that.” Emma Roberts, on Glee. “I love that Gwyneth Paltrow’s on Glee. That’s something you would never think she’d do. And the fact that she just thought, I’m gonna let loose and do this - that’s so cool!“Read the entire story by Mikael Wood in our May issue - then watch it on YouTube starting May 1.
