Emma Watson Smokes A Joint, Wants To Rob In New 'The Bling Ring' Trailer

Meet the new side of Emma Watson.

In the new trailer for her upcoming movie, The Bling Ring, the Harry Potter starlet is taking on a child child persona as she smokes a joint, robs a house and generally wrecks havoc on the likes of Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan.

Directed by Sofia Coppola, the flick centers around a series of actual events where a group of teenagers broke into celebrities' Hollywood mansion to steal their belongings.

 

Watson's role is loosely based on Pretty Wild star Alexis Neiers, who was sentenced to 180 days in county jail with three years' probation for first degree residential burglary of Orlando Bloom's home.

"The character is everything that I felt strongly against -- she's superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral," Watson said of her character in an interview with British GQ. "She's all of these things and I realized 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.

"I knew it would be a really uncomfortable thing to do, but I felt… I had to dive into something really different," she added. "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."

The movie is due out in theaters June 14.
