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.

I won’t want to suddenly have to sacrifice parts of myself, and I don’t feel like I am, knowing that people are going to be more interested in my personal life. I never did go out and party! I never did do the whole drinking, drugs…That wasn’t ever me and is never gonna be me.”

The 19-year-old has a great figure due to Pilates.

As for her barely there outfit when she walked the red carpet at the Billboard Music Awards recently - Miley explained why she chose to wear a white plunging Jean Paul Gaultier jacket and not a dress.

Referring to her dad Billy Ray Cyrus she added, “It’ll happen on the red carpet. That’s why my dad isn’t here right now because he always steps on my dress. So no longer do we walk carpets together.”

Blake Lively will be finishing off her role as Serena van der Woodsen in The CW’s Gossip Girl this summer. The 24-year-old actress talked to Bullett on the ending of the series and her new film role.
She said, “It’ll be bittersweet when it’s over because it gave me all of this. I think the best way to describe it is like someone who really enjoyed high school, and is like, ‘I’m a senior and I can’t wait for the next thing!’ Gossip Girl was so great, but what’s the next challenge in life? Because, you know, six years is a long time. As an actor who plays a caricature of myself on the show, I don’t think I’d say, ‘Watch Gossip Girl for my best quality of work.’ But I am very lucky to have had that experience.’”
Blake is in Oliver Stone’s Savages and plays a “Penny Lane-type spirit”.
“To play a blond California girl who gets with two men was scary. If it looks like me and talks like me, how do I turn it into something different? It would have been easier if I’d been thrown into the movie with a Scottish accent and purple hair.”
She shares on her character Ophelia, “I think it’s really hard for people to digest that these privileged kids are in a three-way relationship. Your heroes are all sleeping with each other, but they’re also in love. It’s very easy to dislike them, so when my character gets kidnapped, it’s like, ‘Well, good riddance!’ My greatest challenge was to make her life worthy of saving, to find the heart in this story.”
The actress – who is dating Ryan Reynolds – insists she’s not doing Savages for anybody but herself.
Lively adds, “I’m not in the business of trying to win the approval of my cast members, my director or my audience. If I were, I’d be so beaten down by insecurity that I’d never be able to perform. The only person I’m trying to prove something to is myself.”

Kristen Stewart looked stunning in a red Reem Acra gown while on the red carpet at the Cosmopolis premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday (May 25). The actress was there to support boyfriend Robert Pattinson’s film. It’s also fair after all. He did attend the screening of her movie On The Road on May 23. At that event Kristen wore a Balenciaga dress with a high slit.
In an interview with the Radio Times – the 22-year-old admitted when she was younger she was really shy on being recognized.
Talking about the time when she was 13 and had just starred with Jodie Foster in Panic Room she explains, “People would come up to me when I was eating with my family in a restaurant or something and I would always just curl up into myself in a ridiculous manner. My family would be embarrassed and it would be like, ‘Kristen, what are you doing? Just be nice and say hello’. And I honestly don’t know what my problem was.
“I think it’s natural that 13 year olds can be pretty insecure, but what’s unnatural about it was that I wasn’t insecure. I loved talking to people normally. I was so engaged and outgoing. It’s just fame. That’s what I had a really hard time with.”
She added, “I was such a freak with all that stuff in the beginning. And that’s way everyone thought I was such a weirdo. I was definitely overly self-conscious.”
