Emma Roberts has been a busy woman lately - she just finished filming 'Adult World' with John Cusack as well as took some time to promote Seventeen magazine's "Pretty Amazing" contest.

Seventeen's second annual "Pretty Amazing" contest is very cool, as it asks girls to share personal achievement stories for the chance to land the October 2012 cover.

Neutrogena also gives the winner a $20,000 scholarship, so it's a great contest!

Emma chatted with Us Weekly about how she improves her self-confidence, sharing, "If I'm having a really bad day, I always have a girlfriend - or even a guy friend."

She added, "They'll listen to me wallow for a minute and then be like, 'OK, let's stop. Everything's great. Let's figure out how to fix whatever's bothering you.'"

Even the famous have their down times, don't forget!

Emma says, "I've gone through times where you're feeling low and you don't reach out to people and you just keep wallowing in that, and I think that's when things turn into a bigger deal than they need to be."

She emphasizes that having family and friends to "pull you out of that" is important.

As for the Seventeen "Pretty Amazing" contest, Emma shares that even for the people who don't win, "the fact that they took the time to sit down and think about something that's great about themselves, I think takes a lot."

Emma gets to help pick the winner this year, along with a couple of other judges.

What's next for Emma? She'll be filming 'Empire State' with Liam Hemsworth, which she says she's "really excited about," adding, "I play his love interest."

Lucky girl.
