Emma Roberts doesn't reside in her aunt Julia Roberts' ever-long shadow anymore; she is genuinely a star in her own right. She's starred in seven films this year (and has many upcoming in 2011), including indie comedy 'It's Kind of a Funny Story,' which co-stars Zach Galifianakis and Keir Gilchrist. Despite the plot of the movie -- which focuses on a group of depressed individuals resigned to a psychiatric ward -- the film is a laugh-riot and actually quite uplifting.

Moviefone caught up with Roberts at the Toronto Film Festival, where she talked about appearing in 'Scream 4' and how she briefly considered becoming a lawyer thanks to 'Legally Blonde.'
