Emma Roberts: 'I Won't Use Auntie Julia'

JULIA ROBERTS' actress niece EMMA ROBERTS wants to be as successful as her Oscar-winning aunt - but she is determined to make it on her own.

The 14-year-old has already been nominated for two Young Artist awards following her successful American TV series UNFABULOUS.

But she refuses to use Julia's name to help her.

She says, "It's really cool to be compared to her because I think she is an amazing actress, but I do want to make a name for myself and accomplish something on my own.

"To me she's just an aunt: I don't really think of her as a movie star except when I see her in magazines.

"She doesn't really give a lot of advice. She always says, 'Just be yourself, be natural, have fun and be a kid.'"
