Renée Zellweger, but keep that to yourself. “I’ve been told [I look like] her multiple times, and I usually walk away in a huff,” she says.
Emma is big on laughter. “I have a great laugh, love to do it and I want someone who enjoys a good, hardy one themselves,” she says.
Emma, who claims she towers to “at 5-foot-1 when she’s had her wheaties,” embraces her miniature stature.
The coolest thing in Emma’s apartment is a brand-new ice cream maker.
Spell it out
Emma’s biggest pet peeve is when someone is unresponsive to her text messages.
The last book Emma read was “50 Shades of Grey.” “I had to see what all the fuss was about,” she says.
Emma goes old-school to get in the mood. “You can never go wrong with Bob Dylan’s ‘Lay Lady Lay’. ”
Emma gets to choose from these three guys. Who do you think she should date?

Pet peeve: A goody-two-shoes
Celebrity crush: Catherine Keener, specifically in “Being John Malkovich”
Secret talent: “I can juggle pretty well,” he says.
He is: a romantic, but choosy. “I’m stubborn and picky, which is probably why I’m single.”
