Working on We're The Millers was a hoot: Emma Roberts

American actress Emma Roberts plays runaway homeless teen Casey in We're The Millers, a comedy about a small-time drug dealer, David, who disguises himself as a suburban dad and hires a group of losers to act as his family.

The 22-year-old says she enjoyed playing the juvenile delinquent as she got to "do a lot of eye-rolling, and huffing and puffing".

Roberts speaks about her experience working on We're The Millers.

What drew you to this film?

I remember reading the script the first time and thinking it was one of the funniest scripts I had read.

It was not just hilarious and outrageous, but also had this heart to it about family, and I thought that was really cool.

To have such an outrageous comedy and still have something to ground it is rare, so it was awesome that the movie had that.

Can you tell us how it was to work with Jennifer Aniston (who plays stripper Rose) and Jason Sudeikis (who plays David)?

I've always been...a fan of Jennifer, so to get to work with her was really, really cool. She was so nice. We hung out a little bit outside of work and she was just the sweetest, most down-to-earth person.

And Jason was hilarious. He was really funny. A lot of the stuff in the movie he ad-libbed, and we would be dying laughing, trying to hold it in so we could get through the take.
