Emma Watson will star in Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring", which will see her transformed from her usual prim self to a celeb obsessed teenage thief. The film is based on a true story about a group of rich teenagers from Calabasas, California, who rob celebrity houses. According to the Daily Mail, Megan Fox, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson, Lindsay Lohan and Ashley Tisdale's homes were all targeted between 2008 and 2009.

In a recent interview with EW, Emma said she prepared for her role by watching a lot of Reality TV. ''I just watched a ton of reality TV. I was doing an English course.. 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.''
Watson tweeted a picture of herself this month dressed as her character "Nicki". She tweeted: "Twitterers meet Nicki, Nicki meet twitterers : )" She wore a pink tracksuit and Ugg boots. She continued: "Nicki likes Lip Gloss, Purses, Yoga, Pole Dancing, Uggs, Louboutins, Juice Cleanses, Iced coffee and Tattoos."
Emma Watson starred as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter film series. Since then has modeled for British brand "Burberry" and has been studying at Brown University.
