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:

Some of our possessions are no-brainer, have to have them, best things in the universe. Others are total beaters, through and through liabilities, that should have been trashed years ago.

But what about those possessions that fall right in between?

In the age of the internet, sometimes it can be very cool to hate on things just because other people do. Bandwagons can be fun, right? But honestly, not all of the things hated on actually deserve it. Save your hate for things that actually call for it.
