Emma Watson - Emma Watson obsessed with Emma Bunton

Emma Watson always wanted to be Emma Bunton when she was growing up.

'The Bling Ring' actress was obsessed with the Spice Girls when she was a youngster and fought with her friend over who got to play blonde-haired Emma, whose nickname in the group was Baby Spice.

She told UK TV show 'Lorraine': ''I was so obsessed with The Spice Girls as a seven or eight year old girl. I wanted to be Emma Bunton. She was so, so cute. I had a friend called Ellie, and we would fight because she had blonde hair, so she thought she should get to be Emma and I said my name was Emma, so I should definitely get to be Emma. This went on for months.''

For 'The Bling Ring' - based on a true story about a group of young people who broke into famous people's houses in Los Angeles - Emma got to film in Paris Hilton's home, but while she found it fascinating, she doesn't like reality TV celebrities in real life.

She added: ''[Paris Hiltons' house] is sort of like fashion Disneyland. I've never seen that many shoes in one place. She really lives her brand, it was fascinating ... I think as an actress you try and separate yourself from this new brand of celebrity, which is people who are famous for being famous.''

Emma - who has been studying at both Oxford University in England and Brown University in New York - added he own shoe collection can hardly match that belonging to the heiress.

She said: ''There's only a certain number of shoes you can fit into a dorm room closet, which I did for the last two years I was living with at university.''
