Emma Roberts Discusses the Inspiration Behind Hot Mess
During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Emma Roberts talked candidly about the source of Hot Mess’s inspiration. According to Roberts, the inspiration for the movie stemmed from her own experiences as a young woman attempting to negotiate relationships and establish herself in society.
Many young women, in Roberts’ opinion, may identify with Lo’s character. We all go through periods of trying to figure out who we are and what we want from life, and she is doing that right now.
Roberts also spoke with director Laura Terruso about how they collaborated to bring Lo’s tale to life while crafting the script. “Laura and I have been friends for a very long time, and we really connected over this idea,” Roberts added. “We wanted to create a film that was both funny and relatable while also having something to say about the difficulties that young women face,” the filmmakers said.
