Emma Watson - Emma Watson Used Kim Kardashian Reality Show As Inspiration For The Bling Ring

Actress Emma Watson spent hours watching Kim Kardashian's family reality show to help her prepare for her role as a socialite in Sofia Coppola's new movie The Bling Ring.

The Harry Potter star portrays one of the so-called 'Bling Ring' thieves, who snatched more than $3 million (£1.9 million) worth of goods from the Hollywood homes of celebrities such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom, and the actress admits she drew lifestyle inspiration from episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Mtv hit The Hills to help her perfect the part.

She says, "I tried to understand the psychology of this kind of girl as much as possible. I didn't want her to be just a parody. The accent was hard as it was a particular kind of dialect. I also thought a lot about what her parents must have been like."

However, Watson insists The Bling Ring, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (16May13), is more than just a "heist movie".

She adds, "It was how about these kids wanted to pretend for just two hours or so that they were actually Paris Hilton and living that life."
