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 looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
