Alice Roberts (29 July 1906 – 29 October 1985) was a Belgian actress active from the late 1920s to the late 1930s.

She may be best-remembered in Georg Wilhelm Pabst's silent German film Pandora's Box (1929). The film was memorable due to the overt lesbian overtures between Roberts' character, the Countess Geschwitz, and Louise Brooks' character, Lulu.[1] The film was based on Frank Wedekind's plays Earth Spirit (play) and "Pandora's Box (play)".

Alice Roberts died in 1985, aged 79[citation needed].
