“You know everybody divides the world into two groups? My two groups are people that like to be scared and people who don’t like to be scared,” Roberts further explained that she falls into the second group. “The first came out and the way that I took my kids to school then, there was a traffic light that I always hit red and there was a poster for

right at that traffic light. I called Ryan and I said, ‘I’m just going to tell you right now—I don’t think I can watch your show. I can’t support you. I don’t think I can do it.”

Although many , Julia Roberts won’t ever join them, no matter how much Ryan Murphy of Emma Roberts beg her to. She’d rather stay away from this kind of projects. This actually explains why Roberts has never starred in any horror movies!

Julia Roberts has openly told Ryan Murphy and Emma Roberts that she won’t ever watch

. “Emma’s on it, and I say, ‘Emma, sweetheart, I don’t think I can watch this show that you’re in.’ And she goes, ‘Auntie, I was in this toy box at the end of this bed and they pulled my arm off.’ I go, ‘OK. You just have to stop talking. I can’t handle it.’ So that is off the table for me. I don’t watch things like that,” she told

Luckily, neither Murphy nor her niece give her a hard time for this choice. In fact, in an interview for , without much success. “She’s too scared! She explained, “When you’re shooting it, it’s not scary and then…they add in all the effects and cut it together. I mean, I sometimes watch it with my eyes closed. I don’t blame her.”

Even though she’s appeared in multiple seasons of American Horror Story, Emma Roberts knows that the show can be too much for some people, her aunt included. “I mean, it just gets crazier and crazier,” she revealed. “We were getting the scripts and we were all like, ‘Really?!’”

Julia Roberts Is Not the Only Person In Her Family Who’s Scared To Watch American Horror Story

Although she’s appeared in many movies and TV shows over the years, is probably better known for her role in the horror genre. The young actress made a name for herself, doing something completely different to what her aunt (Julia Roberts) had done, simply by starring in Wes Craven’s

I’ve always been the person screaming. I’m always freaked out: ‘Someone’s under the bed!’ ‘What is that noise outside?’ I’ve always had anxiety. Always.”

But she’s managed to face her fears. “So, now I’m adult, and all my worst fears basically play out at work every day,” she admitted.

“I always wish someone could see behind the scenes: We’re running through a forest at night, the rain’s pelting, someone has a knife at our throats. Then they say, ‘Cut!’ and we’re all, like, ‘What do you want to eat for lunch? So what are you guys doing this weekend?’"

As scary as watching (and sometimes filming) the show can be, Emma Roberts won’t say no to appearing on once again. In fact, the actress is now starring on the show’s latest season alongside none other than Kim Kardashian!
