Emma Watson is no longer Harry Potter’s bushy haired friend who would always go by the rules and tell others to do the same. The 22-year-old star has gone from good to real bad in her new role in the movie “The Bling Ring”, which is based on real-life events.
Watson is literally rocking the role in’s “The Bling Ring”, in which she plays the pack leader of a group of celebrity-obsessed rich teens who go around breaking in the homes of people like , , Racheal Bilson, and to name just a few.
The first official photo from the film has been released by Entertainment Weekly and Watson is seen sporting straight hair, a giant white fur vest and super-high heels as she walks alongside her gang.
''I just watched a ton of reality TV," said Watson, adding, "I was doing an English course [at Brown University]. So I would go from reading Virginia Woolf to [watching] Kim Kardashian. I kind of loved it, this mix of super high and super low culture. I think it was a nice balance.''
While Watson might not be able to manage stealing Kim’s curvy look, the picture does look like it has been taken right out of "The Hills". Watson has undoubtedly not just taken her role very seriously, she is doing an amazing job as well – at least that’s what the picture suggests.
Watson plays Nicki, based on Alexis Neiers, a 20-year-old member of “The Bling Ring” who, in real life, served 30 days behind bars after being caught for the robberies and later on went to star in a not-so-popular reality show that ended too soon.
Earlier this month, Watson introduced her fans to the new character by posting one of her unofficial pictures from the set wearing a pick track suit and looking somewhat trashy. "Twitterers meet Nicki, Nicki meet twitterers :)," she wrote. Then continued, "Nicki likes Lip Gloss, Purses, Yoga, Pole Dancing, Uggs, Louboutins, Juice Cleanses, Iced coffee and Tattoos."
Joining Emma in this really wild ride that ends nowhere are Claire Alys Julien of "The Dark Knight Rises", Taissa Farmiga of "American Horror Story", Katie Chang and Israel Broussard among other cast members. A premiere date for “The Bling Ring” is yet to be announced.
