We heard way back in December that Emma Roberts had a thing for one James Franco, which we suspect may have made things a touch awkward on the set of “Palo Alto”. Directed by Gia Coppola (yes, Francis Ford’s granddaughter, Sofia’s niece, Jason Schwartzman’s cousin, and so on and so forth) and based on a collection of short stories penned by Franco himself, the new movie revolves around a group of high school students in the Northern California suburb of Palo Alto. Roberts stars as the film’s female lead, with Franco as a teacher with whom she becomes romantically entangled. They should probably just have cut to the chase and called it “Famous People’s Attractive Children” — Roberts plays opposite Val Kilmer’s son, Jack. From the looks of the very promising trailer, “Palo Alto” has just the right formula of dark humor and atmospheric ennui that will make it the kind of cult hit teen movie in the vein of… well, anything Sofia Coppola has ever done. Must be that Coppola blood! The film is on the festival circuit right now, and is still in search of a U.S. distributor, but I don’t doubt that it’ll catch somebody’s eye this festival season. Watch the trailer above! [via Deadline]

The Cronut, the über popular lovechild of the croissant and donut, is possibly the world’s most revered dessert right now. But despite its superiority, the Cronut is still the snack of equality. If you want a Cronut, you will wait in line for a Cronut. We’re looking at you, Emma Roberts.
In true diva style, Emma allegedly decided that the line in front of Dominique Ansel Bakery in NYC was not for her. She and her publicist marched right on up to the front of the line to try and get some star treatment. She was, however, treated like any other line jumper and was sent to the back of the lengthy queue. Emma reportedly quickly decided that waiting like a normal person was beneath her and she left the bakery in shame.
Luckily for Roberts, she is in fact a famous person and was treated to a Cronut that very night when she appeared on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” On the show, she explained that she didn’t see the large group of people waiting to get into the store, which is why she went right to the door. I can’t really tell if it’s worse to be completely oblivious or just impatient and entitled. Either way, she got her damn Cronut. [Gawker; Daily Mail] [Photo: Getty Images]
- Emma Roberts was arrested for domestic violence against her boyfriend Evan Peters, one of the stars of “American Horror Story,” on July 7 in Montreal. According to TMZ, a third party called police to report a fight in the couple’s hotel room and cops arrived to find Peters with a bloody nose and a bite mark. Roberts was arrested but released hours later because Peters opted not to press charges. Wow, Emma Roberts is just about the last young celeb that I would have expected to be physically abusive.

I fell instantly in love with this red lace dress Emma Roberts wore to a party in Beverly Hills. It’s fun, flattering, and since I’m going through a red period right now (not as menstrual as it sounds), I’m especially taken with the color. Emma’s dress is by Style Stalker and costs $189, which is practically free in celebrity money, but still about double what I usually spend on a dress. I dug up three other pretty red lace dresses for $70 or less, from size 3 to 2X. Shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

Emma Roberts, I am giving this tweet serious side eye. Kate Middleton may now be a member of the Royal Family, but her breasts are still her own, to do with as she pleases within the parameters of what’s legal. So, proper princesses have tan lines and a lack of bodily freedom? Pretty sure that wasn’t in Kate’s wedding vows. [The Gloss]
