Emma Roberts loved hanging around the film set of 'Ocean's Eleven' because of all the "cute boys".

The budding actress used to hang around with her A-list auntie Julia Roberts when she was making films, her favourite being the 2001 hunk-packed heist movie, which starred Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon.

Emma, 20, said: "'Ocean's Eleven' was really fun because it had all the cute boys in it. I just loved being on the sets. People would tell me, 'Emma it's late. You have to go home.' And I'd say, 'no, I want to stay.'

"I saw how all of the different departments worked and that showed me what it would be like."

Emma won her first role in a film at nine, starring alongside Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz in 'Blow' and has since been getting steady work, with her breakthrough coming as a teen detective in 'Nancy Drew', while more recently appeared in 'The Art of Getting By' and 'Scream 4'.

Emma's father is Eric Roberts - who is also an actor - but she preferred to hang around with her aunt, because she made more "fun" movies.

She added in an interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper: "When I was a child I didn't really go and see him on movie sets because he was doing a lot of more adult movies. They were kind of inappropriate for me because I was a lot younger, whereas my aunt Julia was doing younger, fun movies, so I will visit her more."
