Emma Roberts posed in front of a fence of love locks in Paris, France on Saturday (June 29) and wrote, “Love locks in Paris! ❤”
‘Love locks’ are a custom – started in Paris – in which padlocks are attached to a fence, gate or bridge by couples to symbolize their love. The custom has spread to all parts of the world and is often accompanied by a ceremonial gesture of throwing the keys into a river.
The Valentine’s Day actress is in Paris for a Versace show and has been posting lots of pics from her adventures around the City of Lights, including the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower.
Ironically, the 22-year-old said recently in an interview that one of the reasons she left her studies at Sarah Lawrence college was because she felt like she was missing out on “real life.”
“I was so busy pretending to experience everything [on-screen], I forgot to experience real life,” Emma said. “I wasn’t getting what I wanted … on my quest for real-life experience. But I do have high hopes. When I’m 30, playing 21, maybe I’ll have the graduation I always dreamed of.”
