Emma Roberts rubbishes nepotism accusations

London: Emma Roberts, who is the niece of Oscar-winner Julia Roberts, has rubbished accusations that her success in Hollywood is because of her famous aunt.

The 20-year-old actress says it`s her own talent and not her relationship to Roberts that fuels her success in Hollywood, reported a website.

"A lot of people think that, and they talk about nepotism which I think is so ridiculous considering it`s obviously not true; because I`ve auditioned for so many things and never gotten the part," Emma said.

The `Nancy Drew` star who worked with her aunt in the movie `Valentine`s Day` would love to work with her again. "I would love to, it would be really fun for us," she said.

But despite her famous lineage, Emma doesn`t feel any pressure to compete with her aunt and said, "I`m just doing my own thing, I don`t really compare it to what my aunt does, but I do admire her and love all her movies".
