EmmaRoberts found watching her first sex scene more embarrassing than shooting it because her mother was sitting next to her.
The budding actress is the niece of Hollywood superstar Julia Roberts, but has launched a career as a successful actress in her own right.
The 19-year-old`s first raunchy scene was opposite Rory Culkin in the 2008 coming-of-age movie Lymelife about a family which bows under the pressure of a failing marriage.
Emma`s character Adrianna flashes her bra at Rory`s character Scott and the pair canoodle in a romantic scene.
The actress says that shooting the sequence wasn`t actually as hard as watching it, especially as she was accompanied by her mother for the preview.
"It was more difficult to watch than it was to do. It was embarrassing watching it with my mom," the star said in an interview with Total Film magazine.
Emma`s career is going from strength to strength, with her recently signing on to star in Scream 4, the latest instalment of the horror franchise. She would like to follow in the footsteps of her famous aunt and revealed she`s especially a fan of Julia`s romantic comedies.
"I love her movies - Notting Hill`s my favourite," she revealed.
