Emma Watson gets her sexy on for the May 2013 issue of British GQ as photographed by Mark Seliger. Photographed in character as Nicki, a pole-dancing thieving vixen, for her upcoming film by Sofia Coppola, The Bling Ring (a group of LA teens who use social networks to track when celebrities aren’t home, then break into their mansions to party, raid their wardrobes and cause havoc.)
Inside Emma talks stardom, sex and stalkers.
“When I read the script and I realised that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it’s become to our society, I had to do it,” says Watson of The Bling Ring. “The character is everything that I felt strongly against – she’s superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She’s all of these things and I realised that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate? But I found it really interesting and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job, or my role as an actress, could be.”
There was another reason Watson chose the risqué role: it wasn’t a period drama. “Really I was open-minded about doing anything, but the one thing I didn’t want to do was get myself into a corset because I was worried I’d never get out again,” she says. “I knew it would be a really comfortable thing to do, but I felt… I had to dive into something really different. This has been a really big departure for me; it’s a really big character. That’s so exciting for me because it meant I was really acting.”
