The first official photo of Sophia Coppola’s Bling Ring has been published by Entertainment Weekly. Emma Watson – seen in the middle – stars in the film with Georgia Rock, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, and Claire Julien. The movie is about the real-life story of fame-obsessed teenagers who allegedly burglarized the homes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and The Hills’ Audrina Patridge.
Emma tells EW.com how she prepared for the role of Nicki.
”I just watched a ton of reality TV. 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.”
In Early May the 22-year-old actress posted a photo of her character on her Twitter page.
She wrote: “Twitterers meet Nicki, Nicki meet twitterers”, later adding, “Nicki likes Lip Gloss, Purses, Yoga, Pole Dancing, Uggs, Louboutins, Juice Cleanses, Iced coffee and Tattoos.”
Bling Ring doesn’t have a release date yet.
