Emma Roberts dating Evan Peters: Did ‘Adult World’ co-stars find love on Syracuse set?

“Celeste and Jesse Forever” actress Emma Roberts and “American Horror Story” star Evan Peters have been spotted together again, extending their spring fling into a summer romance.
The Daily Mail reports the Hollywood couple has been dating for several months since meeting on the set of “Adult World,” which filmed in Syracuse this past February. The pair was first seen together at Coachella Festival in April, and again at her stylist Emily Current’s wedding in July.
Photos posted by GossipCenter show Roberts and Peters out on a lunch date at The Oaks Gourmet in Los Feliz, California on Friday. The 21-year-old niece of Julia Roberts wore black shorts and a baggy sailor t-shirt while smiling and laughing at a table outside with the 25-year-old actor, who also dressed casually with a ‘Slam Duck’ graphic tee and gray pants.
Roberts previously dated “Glee” star Chord Overstreet dated for nine months before breaking up in early 2012. Rumors spread that they got back together in the spring, but now she appears to be exclusively with Peters, whose other roles include “Kick-Ass,” “One Tree Hill” and “The Office.”
Roberts was in Syracuse for more than three weeks this past winter to film “Adult World,” directed by Scott Coffey and co-starring John Cusack, John Cullum and Cloris Leachman. She plays a recent college graduate who ends up working at an erotic bookstore to pay for her student loans, guided by her favorite poet and professor Rat Billings (Cusack).
Peters plays Roberts’ love interest in the film. “The chemistry between him and Emma when we screened them was great,” co-producer Manu Gargi told The Post-Standard in February.
Despite sharing a name with an actual business in Syracuse called Adult World, the film’s title is a play on words about growing up and entering the real (or adult) world.
According to the Daily Mail, “Adult World” could get a theatrical release as early as the end of this year. Coffey previously told The Post-Standard that he’d start showing a final cut of the film to film distributors by September to be picked up and possibly screened at the Sundance Film Festival in early 2013.
Roberts, who rose to fame as a teen in movies like “Aquamarine” and “Nancy Drew,” recently wrapped “Empire State” opposite Liam Hemsworth. Deadline reports she’s now in the cast of Jennifer Aniston’s new film “We’re the Millers,” currently filming in North Carolina.
Peters is expected to appear on FX’s “American Horror Story” again as a different character. The Daily Mail reports he just finished filming a movie called “Truck Stop,” a drama set in the ’70s about the friendship between a child with cerebral palsy and a troubled runaway.
