We’re used to seeing Emma Watson very prim and proper — well, aside from her recent artsy topless photo shoot — but thanks to her new movie The Bling Ring, we’re seeing her in a whole new light! The British Harry Potter actress got a bad girl makeover for the upcoming film based on the true story of privileged L.A. teens robbing the homes of celebrities, and showed off the look on the cover of British GQ’s May issue.
Dressed in a provocative cut out dress, Emma gave a sneak peek at her toned bod thanks to the skimpy outfit. Emma is also rocking some extensions and tacky jewelry, along with a Coffee Bean beverage. Yep, she’s nailed the part of a trashy L.A. socialite!
Emma spoke about taking the role, and told the mag, “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. 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.”
Speaking about what attracted her to the role, Emma revealed that she had to “dive into something really different,” adding, “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.”
