Kiss and Tell : 'Palo
Alto' Star Emma
Roberts Discusses
Steamy Bedroom Scene
with James Franco


Ever wonder what it’s like to kiss – and do some more intimate things with – the selfie king aka James Franco?

Thanks to Emma Roberts, who plays the 36-year-old actor's love interest in Palo Alto, we now know.

In the film, Emma plays a teenage girl named April, who catches the charm of her soccer coach and high school teacher Mr. B, played by Franco. One thing leads to another and they end up in a bedroom together doing you know what.

“It wasn't [awkward], because James is so lovely and he didn't make it weird,” Emma says about filming the sex scene. “It wasn't weird, but there was definitely a point where you're like, ‘How much longer until you say cut?’”

She adds, “What people don't realize is people are always like, ‘Oh, you got to make out with James Franco!’ I'm like, ‘Yeah, and 30 people stood there and watched!’ It's so not romantic at all.”

Even though it may have not been as romantic as it looked, the 23-year-old actress revealed that “everyone” was still jealous of her onscreen costar.

“Guys, girls, everybody. My mom was asking about it,” Emma tells E! News. “I've never had so many people ask me about a kiss that wasn't even real in my whole life ever.”

However, kissing James Franco was just an added bonus to being part of Gia Coppola’s film.

The American Horror Story star revealed that she’s wanted to be part of the film for a while now. She even read Franco’s Palo Alto book in three days since picking it up on its release date June 2011!
