Emma Watson Is Not The Star Of The Bling Ring

Emma Watson is in the new Sofia Coppola movie, The Bling Ring,. That is the movie that was made which chronicles the group of people who robbed celebrity homes. I'm sure it will be more exciting than the actual news stories were which were pretty lame. Anyway, the marketing for the movie would lead one to believe that Emma Watson is the big star of the movie and that she will dominate the screen and you really should go see it if you want to see her in something other than Harry Potter. The thing is, Emma is only like 3rd or 4th billed in the movie and does not have much screen time. Being the honest soul she is, she went to Twitter to remind everyone of that fact and not to be fooled by the marketing. I bet the studio was not thrilled with that.

You wonder why I love that girl?

I'll also say that, after watching this trailer, I think this movie is going to be dryly hilarious, and a lot of people won't get it.

I already read one review from some guy who saw a screening and complained it was poorly written, because none of the characters seemed to have any depth. Geez, it's not like the whole point of this movie is that it's about shallow people engaged in shallow pursuits for shallow reasons or anything!

I have a serious girl crush on this lady. Serious.

Munch said...

I like her. She seems really grounded. I'm so pleased that after having such enormous success so young she (and the others) are just quietly getting on with life post-Potter without any drunken drug-fuelled rampages or 'leaked' sex tapes or klepto incidents. Just well-adjusted young actors. So unusual.

VIPblonde said...

Not going to lie, I'm pretty excited for this movie. I loved the Lifetime one!

PuggleWug said...

She's spot on with the voice. That family is so screwed up.

Moosefan said...

Love her!

ethorne said...

Damn until now I thought this movie was about flashy body piercings.

KPeony said...

Don't crucify me for this, but she seems bratty or spoiled behind all the sweetness. She knows how much everyone adores her so she uses it to get her way. Maybe I'm just jealous or something, but that's my opinion.

I like that girl.

Cathy said...

Am I the only one irritated that they made a movie about this? Now those spoiled bratty kids got what they wanted - fame.

Count Jerkula said...

I watched the opening moments a few times. It is either a hot pair of panties over granny panties or inside of a granny panty tanline.

I just realized the trailer is available in 720p. I'll continue my research and update if new info is found.

--Good Day.

jennifer hansen said...

@cathy definitely not. this movie looks stupid.

All about Eve said...

I like Emma and I like Sofia Coppola's movies so I'll give this a try.

Cathy said...

@Eve - I think that's what bothers me most - the fact that such respectable people are involved in something that will only give more fame to these bratty entitled assholes who don't deserve it. To me, it would be like Sofia Coppola doing a movie about Kim Kardashian, starring Anne Hathaway.

Susan said...

The Bling Ring story is fascinating to moi. Damn you, VIPBlonde, now I'm actually going to search out a Lifetime movie.

I love how they targeted Paris Hilton first by sitting around pondering the question, "Which celebrity is a big enough dumbass to leave the door open."

No doubt, I think the crimes are vile and the girl who ran the whole thing is pretty much a crazy stalker, but I think the story is such a sign of our times. Hopefully this movie is interesting.

Erin B said...

@Cathy - I'm wondering what kind of take on it they do. I agree these people are getting fame which is exactly they want. I wonder if it sheds them in a good light or a poor light. Not that I'll ever waste my time seeing it. I was mad when the one girl got a reality show on E. This is just as bad to me.

PugsterMom said...

You're not alone. It glorifies these pricks.

saycheese said...

Count Jerk, I think they are 'boyshorts' style with lace around the edges. thanks for making me have to go back and look now.

Susan said...

I don't know how in the world the film could spin the story in a positive light. But, Hollywood has shocked me before.

For anyone interested, this article from Vanity Fair is a great read:

@saycheese: you are probably right, they just look odd.

All about Eve said...

@Cathy, I was surprised that she was directing this movie, doesn't seem like her thing

asher said...

@Susan, I'm not sure that the movie will try to do that at all! I was reading the trailer along the lines of Spring Breakers : people get insanely stupid about a certain lifestyle.

PuggleWug said...

I wouldn't say it glorifies them. It show us who these teens are. They were entitled, farmers hungry, drug addled teens. I'm sure Coppola will show each moment of asshole behavior, because they all were pretty much asshole (like a lot of teens can be).

It will also show our obsession with celebrity, and how many in society are vying for their in the place in the sun, even if being recognized is for crime.

Nancy said...

@KPeony, not going to be crucified by me. I have the same read about her that you do.
She just does not impress me at all. And out of everyone in Harry Potter (besides the girl that played Ginny Weasley)...I thought she was the worst actress.

PuggleWug said...

The person Watson plays had a reality show, showcasing her family. The mother doled out adderall like it was candy. She had no handle on her kids, would party with them, and then make millions of excuses for their actions. I'm glad the movie will get a glimpse of the home life.

Surprisingly, out of all of the girls on that show, Alexis (Watsons character) turned out the most normal. I believe she is married, has a kid, and is a drug counselor now.

PuggleWug said...

Fame hungry, not farmer. Autocorrect is my mortal enemy.

Izzie said...

@Puggle - that's exactly how I was watching the trailer.

I don't if I'll see the movie, maybe when it comes out on Netflix.

Looking at that room full of shoes reminds me of Robin Leach drawling "lifestyles of the rich and famous!"

Wishing you champagne wishes and caviar dreams! :b

Izzie said...

ugh. *I don't know if I'll see the movie.

@Puggle, just be glad you don't have Lotta's pervy autocorrect phone!

Jonathan Andrew Sheen said...

Just watching the trailer, it's clear that this movie isn't glorifying these kids, unless you feel that "Beavis and Butthead" glorified its subjects.

From what I see, the movie is holding these vapid, vacuous, shallow, moronic kids up to public ridicule in a way that would seem almost mean -- like laughing at Special Olympians -- if they weren't symptomatic of an illness oozing through our culture, where we're more interested in who Lindsay Lohan is schtupping or what Paris Hilton is wearing than how many people in the country are starving, how willing we are to surrender our civil rights or even why anyone not directly related to them knows the name "Kardashian."

Anotheramy said...

I looked at the "I hate Emma Watson" web site and was disturbed. I'm no shrinking violet, maybe its just my mood. I know there are hundreds of "I hate this person Ive never met" blogs. One of them was very popular for a while even. For some reason this one really got me.

di butler said...

Well, not really. The UK does a better job of not exposing the things behind the scenes with actors that are beloved by the public, than the US. There's some There's over given. But, Watson has been ok. Some pretty wild partying, but not too out of control, doing well adjusting to adult roles.

Susan said...

Love the trailer. I think the movie is going to be really interesting.

Cathy said...

@JAS - I agree that it doesn't glorify them, but these are people who are of the mindset that any type of fame/attention is good. So even if they're portrayed as vapid, entitled brats, it's still giving them what they wanted.

Silly Girl said...

What family does that girl belong to (Alexis)? For some reason, I seem to recall watching a random episode years back......not coming to me though....

seaward said...

Alexis Neiers *should* be glorified!! Bring back Pretty Wild!!!

Erin B said...

The reason I thought it may not be fully negative is because I recently read where Coppola said they are a product of our reality TV culture. I took it to mean that might be propped up as an excuse. To me, that's as stupid as the "my kid killed someone because they listened to Judas Priest" arguments from the '80s.

VIPblonde said...

@Susan It has Jennifer Grey in it!!

msgirl said...

Knowing Coppola I doubt this is going to be positive, it's bee a statement about our vapid society.

Really, those girls had a reality show? What is the world coming to?

Sherry said...

Well this here is another reason to hate on Emma. How DARE she be honest. What a beyotch!

Mango said...

Anyone know what the Lifetime movie was called?


Jdwg51887 said...

It was called the bling ring and Austin butler was in it

Jazzy said...

I can't wait!! She sounds just like that Pretty Wild girl. LOL
