Hogwarts is worlds away for Emma Watson now that she’s gone hardcore-Hollywood for her next role.
The erstwhile Hermione Granger nabbed a starring role in Sofia Coppola’s based-on-a-true-story drama The Bling Ring – y’ know, the movie about the real-life fame whores who robbed the homes of actual fame whores like Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton.
Check out Watson in full airhead garb in the center of the photo at right. Sky-high heels? Check. Overdressed, overstyled outfit, complete with the requisite big-ass sunnies? Check. Starbucks to go? Check!
So how did the Brit prep for her most-vapid part?
“I just watched a ton of reality TV,” she said. “I was [studying at Brown], so I would go from reading Virginia Woolf to [watching] Kim Kardashian.”
Yeah, that’ll do the trick.
