I… we… so… Emma Watson, immortal Hogwarts legend and probably one of the sexiest girls alive, covers the latest issue of British magazine GQ in character as Nicki, her pole-dancing, thieving Valley vixen in Sofia Coppola’s new movie “The Bling Ring”, shot by Mark Seliger, and talks also a little bit about stardom, sex and stalkers. Oh my god…
Why did you choose to do this movie?
When I read the script and I realised that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it’s become to our society, I had to do it,” says Watson of The Bling Ring. “The character is everything that I felt strongly against – she’s superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She’s all of these things and I realised 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.
Any other reason?
Really 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’d never get out again,” she says. “I knew it would be a really comfortable thing to do, but I felt”¦ I had to dive into something really different. 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.”
