Julia Roberts and American Horror Story share a surprisingly close connection. Not only is Roberts close friends with the show's co-creator Ryan Murphy, who directed her in Eat Pray Love and The Normal Heart, but she is also aunt to one of its stars: Emma Roberts. Despite this, Julia is certain she'll never appear on the show, or perhaps even watch it.






It turns out, at the end of the day, the Oscar-winning actress just isn't a fan of being frigthened:

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.




At least Roberts was kind enough to let Murphy know she wouldn't be watching...

The first season of American Horror Story 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 American Horror Story 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.' He goes, 'Lady, you won't get through the commercial.' Okay, that's a good friend. Someone who really knows me and so of course I would never watch that.



Julia also warned Emma that the new show probably wasn't for her.

And then 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, 'Okay. 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.




American Horror Story is currently airing its eighth season, titled American Horror Story: Apocalypse, which many think of as a crossover between seasons one and three. Roberts should think about jumping on if she gets the chance—fans are loving what they're seeing:

When you're working with kids, you never know what you're going to be dealing with on a daily basis. Are you going to have the delicate sweethearts, opening their hearts to learn?

Or are you going to be dealing with a sinister group of bee wranglers, who have suddenly set up a black market bee ring througout the school?

Yes. That's a real thing that happened.

Adulthood has been pretty nice, I have to admit. I quite like it. But it isn't always easy and some lessons are more difficult to learn than others.

It's so important to learn how to budget, for instance, because being an adult can get expensive. Between rent, food, utilities, and other odds and ends, you'd be shocked how quickly money flies out the window. Understanding this (and keeping an eye on your finances) pays dividends in the long run.

But that's also assuming things go well or smoothly – unexpected expenses arise and those come with their own consequences.

People shared their thoughts after Redditor FrequentPilot5243 asked the online community,

"What is an adult problem no one prepared you for?"
