The Anti-Material Girl - Emma Watson And Her Eight Pairs Of Shoes

Subscribe to Emma Watson alerts

Emma Watson might have starred in The Bling Ring – a cross between a roast and a hedonistic celebration of consumption – but she’s not into that whole scene herself. Not according to her latest interview with New York Magazine’s The Cut, at least. In it, Watson criticizes celebrity culture, as portrayed in the film – and the consumerism that comes with it. She specifically talks about Paris Hilton, of whom the film also tries to make an example.

Emma Watson, Bling Ring Premiere
Despite the fashion sense, Emma Watson isn't your typical It-girl.

"She could never wear all of those clothes and half of them were brand new and still had the price tag on. But I suppose she just bought them to have them. We've all bought things on impulse but that's an entirely different thing ... It's almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania," Watson says and explains how she keeps herself from that mindset: "I've got about eight pairs of shoes and that's it."

We assume then that no one could make about Watson the same mistake that Nancy Jo Sales made about Alexis Neiers – you know, the “six-inch Louboutins vs little brown Bebe shoes” incident. And if, by any chance, that phrase doesn’t ring a bell, then get thee to Google and find someway to watch Pretty Wild – the reality show - starring Alexis Neiers, which served as inspiration for The Bling Ring in the first place. Not because it’s good, oh no. Still, the world probably won’t look the same after a marathon watch of the antics of Neiers and co.

Paris Hilton could take some cues from the English actress.
