Emma Watson is all grown up. The Harry Potter child actress has changed her image for her upcoming movie ‘The Bling Ring,’ and is loving her new transformation.
The 22-year-old actress is seen on this month’s cover of Britain’s GQ Magazine wearing a dress similar to Julia Roberts’ famous Pretty Woman cut-out dress.
On the cover, Emma is dressed as her character Nikki from the film. Here’s more from GQ:
Emma on playing an “amoral” character like Nikki:
“When I read the script and I realized that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it’s become to our society, I had to do it. The character is everything that I felt strongly against — she’s superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She’s all of these things and I realized that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate? But I found it really interesting and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job or my role as an actress could be.”
Emma plays the leading role in the Sofia Coppola-directed movie about the real life Bling Ring or The Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch as they were known, who were arrested in 2009 for a string of break-ins at the homes of stars including Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton.
She admits she’s taking a wide range of movie roles so she doesn’t get pigeonholed:
“I was open-minded about doing anything but the one thing I didn’t want to do was get myself into a corset because I was worried I would never get out again. This has been a really big departure for me. It’s a really big character. That’s so exciting for me because it meant I was really acting.”
