Emma Roberts, Taraji P. Henson and Gina Rodriguez look gorgeous on the October issue of ‘Glamour’ — and we couldn’t think of a better trio to grace the TV issue! Inside, Emma spilled on her upcoming role in ‘Scream Queens’ — check it out!

Three of the biggest names in fall TV, Emma Roberts, Taraji P. Henson and Gina Rodriguez, look glam on their individual covers of Glamour‘s October issue, where they open up about their roles — and show off stunning fall fashion!

Inside, Emma opened up about getting the acting bug at a young age. “My mom and I would stay with my Aunt Julia when I was really young, so I grew up on sets. I just found this old Polaroid of me on the set of Erin Brockovich, in one of my Aunt Julia’s super-padded dresses from the movie, with the biggest smile on my face. I’d cry when I had to leave. I loved that it felt like camp,” she said.

The star also opened up about her highly anticipated role in Scream Queens. “The first day I got to set, Jamie Lee Curtis [who plays the school’s dean] had left me a handwritten note and books because she knew I love to read. I feel so safe when she’s on set. Lea and I were just talking about the fact that [Jamie Lee] leads a normal life and has a family and a career, which is something I ultimately want. Lea and I keep each other in shape—we do Pilates. Billie [Lourd, who plays one of her sorority sisters] and I have sleepovers. We’ll call each other and be like, ‘Hey, are you scared? Yep. Me too, I’m coming over.’ You always need that girlfriend you can get in bed with. Even though I’m 24, I still look under the bed every night before I go to sleep,” she said.

Emma’s new role involves being around a lot of females — and considering how important her female friends are to her, it was a great fit. “I think I’ve cried more about breakups with girlfriends than I ever have about boyfriends. But can I tell you: It’s changed my life. I only have girlfriends now who make me a better person,” she said.

She also opened up about how she transitioned to more adult roles. “I think it happened naturally. Instead of trying to be like, ‘Look how mature I am—I’m going to take off my clothes!’ I pick roles based on what I love. I’m not picking roles based on what’s going to prove to people that I’m older,” she said.
