Emma Watson has appeared in a few movies since her Harry Potter days, but she still has that good girl image. But that could change after The Bling Ring.
A teaser trailer for The Bling Ring was released today and the highlight is Ms. Watson showing off a new side to her fans. Watson can bee seen dancing seductively, stealing jewelry, and breaking an entry in the trailer.
Watson said that she had to step out of her comfort zone a little in order to play the character.
“I also want to point out on my lower back, I have an Om Buddha sign, like a tramp stamp … It was really weird. This is what’s so awesome about my job, is that I had to get into the shoes of someone I couldn’t relate to. I’ve never had to do that before, but by the end of it, I don’t know, it was really interesting getting into this girl’s head. She represents a lot of what I basically stand against. It was really fascinating to break it down, and be like, ‘What is this actually about?’ It made me like my job a lot.”
The Bling Ring, which was directed by Sofia Coppola, tells the true story of a group of teens that stole jewelry from celebrities in 2008 and 2009. Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton were among the victims. Hilton even makes a cameo in the movie.
Here’s a synopsis of The Bling Ring from IMDB: “Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the Internet to track celebrities’ whereabouts in order to rob their homes.”
Here’s The Bling Ring trailer.
