Emma Watson, who will perhaps always be known first and foremost as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter movies, is about to show us all a very different side of her acting chops in the upcoming Sofia Coppola film “The Bling Ring“.

The movie, which is based on a true story, centers on four teen girls in L.A. who made unfortunate names for themselves by breaking into a string of celebrity homes and stealing their belongings. Watson’s character, Nikki, is based on Alexis Niers, who starred with her sisters and mom on the short-lived E! reality show “Pretty WIld” a couple of years back. Alexis served 30 days of jail time, but the crimes followed her around even while she was on the show, which chronicled run-ins with the very celebrities she was accused of stealing from. And in a weird twist of fate, she reportedly ended up just one jail cell over from Lindsay Lohan, one of her burglary victims.

Watson is known for her adorable pixie looks and proper English accent, so to see her get Cali’d out is going to be a big deal for fans. She says she watched a lot of reality television in order to prepare for the role and even managed a nice slam on Kim Kardashian and her family:

“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,” she said.

Watson also took to Twitter to give fans some sneak peeks at her character, via a photo and her own description.

    I was the same way when the HP movies were being made thinking if I ran up on her on the streets I would have said I love you being Hermione Granger but now if I ran up on her now I would have said I love you for being Emma Watson

    • Mary Turner

      George, you hit the nail on the head. Emma is bright (very!) and apppears to be a sweet, talented young woman. You go, girl!

  • Elle

    ugh, why Emma? As long as u had fun lol

  • james arena

    Hey Emma! I am on your side that Kim Kardashian is on the “SUPER LOW CULTURE” side of life. Thank Goodness SOMEBODY out there makes sense about that Kim!

  • Chris

    I doubt it was just an attack on Kim, but the entire realm of “reality tv.”

  • David

    Emma Watson is beautiful, cultured, talented, charming, and someone worth being around, and deserves to be famous… the total opposite of anyone living named Kardashian. “Super Low Culture” is the understatement of the century as far as the K sisters are.. especially when anyone can see there is no way in hell they are from the same father…

    It’s sad that Kim Kardasian dissed Emma. What doe Kim Kardasian do? I know that she was in Playboy, but what else does she do?

  • Cam

    So glad she went back to long hair. It looks beautiful on her. And hahahahahahaha! “this mix of super-high and super-low culture”

  • Paul Seyler

    Emma is just perfect. She’s beautiful, vibrant, intelligent, and adorably pleasant.

    I loved logical, beautiful, and caring Hermione Granger through seven books and eight movies. I love the actress that is Emma Watson, the closest thing we have now to beloved Hermione. After this sad end of an era, everyone who has stuck with Harry, Ron, and Hermione – as I have – will continue to love our dear Emma!

    Also: I believe that Emma, however seemingly harmless, is very much a bad girl (and I mean that as a compliment).

  • Jim

    Ummm…not a “slam”. Just a description of reality TV. Surely no one is going to argue that reality TV is “low culture”?

  • Robert Bealll

    Finally someone gets it. I don’t know how anyone can see Kim K. (or her sisters)as role models in any universe. Network TV reached a new low when they let them have their own show, and continue to do so with her sister. Emma was being nice. I could say things about Kim K. which would certainly to be construed as a true slam.

  • Zeke

    Let’s face it. KK is nothing more than a spoiled tramp and publicity whore.
