Date of birth: April 18, 1956

Eric Anthony Roberts is not just a father of a talented actress Emma Roberts, he is also an older brother of the main American Pretty Woman Julia Roberts. He was born in Biloxi, MS in the family of acting coaches and occasional actors Betty Lou and Walter Grady Roberts. Eric spent his teens in Atlanta, GA, where his parents opened an acting studio. Eric suffered from stuttering, so he leant long monologues by heart and then pronounced them in front of his parents to make his speech fluent and understandable. He managed to cope with speech disorder and convinced his father, that acting was his cup of tea.

Eric Roberts was interested in everything, connected with acting, at the age of 11. To help his son develop acting skills, his father sent the boy to American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

When Eric turned 15, his parents divorced. Betty Lou and her daughters Julia and Lisa moved to another city. During many years Eric and his sisters didn’t see each other, because he resided with his dad. When Eric turned 21, his father died.

His breaking role was in the film “King of the Gypsies”. Other popular Eric Roberts screen works are “Runaway Train”, “Best of the Best”, “One Way”, “Final Analysis” and others. He won an Academy Award nomination for his work in “Runaway Train”.

If Eric Roberts’s career seems enviable and well-planned, his personal life is quite chaotic and troubled.

When the actor was 25, he was close to death after a terrible car crash. Doctors literally created Eric’s face from scratch – his head was completely ruined in a crash. After a long period of rehabilitation he returned to acting and in early 1990s has become a real Hollywood star. But his passion to drugs again did a huge harm to his career.

Eric has just one kid – a daughter Emma. He dated Emma’s mother Kelly Cunningham in early 1990s, but they had never been married. Eric and Kelly separated soon after Emma’s birth.

In 1992 he married Eliza Simons. Currently she serves as Eric’s manager. Roberts met his wife during the flight in a plane. She was sitting by his side and was his fan.

In his younger years Eric was not close with his daughter. Emma spent more time with her famous aunt Julia Roberts. When the girl decided to become an actress, her father was against it. But later Eric supported his only child.
