Emma Watson's pals went to plenty of effort for her 23rd birthday.
Emma Watson's pals went the whole hog for her 23rd birthday in New York recently, making 23 pinatas all themed on different periods in the actress's life. Her friends spent several hours creating the papier-mache models, one for each of her 23 years, for the bash in New York last week, reports The Sun.
Watson was predictably dumbstruck after arriving at the bash. A source said: "Emma was gobsmacked when she arrived at the party to see all the pinatas. There was everything from her as a child, and as Hermione in the Harry Potter films, to her in the Chanel advert a couple of years ago.They had even gone to the effort of stuffing a few of the pinatas with sweets and treats, so Emma could smash them open." There were even a few "naughty male body parts" on one of the piñatas, themed on her role in Sofia Coppola's upcoming crime-drama 'The Bling Ring.' The movie sees Watson play an unruly teen who forms a group of thieves targeting celebrity's in Los Angeles.
The film will premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, though it will not be eligible for the big prize, the Palme d'Or. The actress recently spoke to MTV News about getting into character as the raunchy 'Nicki' and taking some pole dancing lessons "[Co-star] Claire [Julien] actually taught me a bunch of moves.You have to be very physically strong to hold your own body weight, and I really didn't have that core strength initially, so that was pretty intimidating. And, also, I'm just a really awkward sexy person, so basically the scene turned into me just messing around because I think Sofia thought, 'We need to give her a break.'"
