Watson: I hate myself in Bling Ring

Congleton Guardian: Emma Watson totally changed her image for her Bling Ring role Emma Watson totally changed her image for her Bling Ring role

Emma Watson has confessed she hates her character in new film Bling Ring so much that she doesn't think she can bear to watch it.

The Harry Potter star plays an American teenager called Nicki in the drama, which was written and directed by Sofia Coppola and inspired by a real-life group of teens who burgled the homes of Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson and other celebrities in the Hollywood Hills.

Emma told MTV: "This is how much I hate myself in the movie: I don't think I'm going to be able to watch it. I hate myself."

The Perks Of Being A Wallflower star had to completely change her image for the role, donning Ugg boots, a velour tracksuit and fake tattoos.

She said: "I also want to point out on my lower back, I have an Om Buddha sign, like a tramp stamp. It was really weird.

"This is what's so awesome about my job, is that I had to get into the shoes of someone I couldn't relate to. I've never had to do that before, but by the end of it, I don't know, it was really interesting getting into this girl's head. She represents a lot of what I basically stand against. It was really fascinating to break it down, and be like, 'What is this actually about?' It made me like my job a lot."
