As if we weren’t already crushing on Emma Watson!
The Bling Ring star took to Cannes Film Festival yesterday and revealed that she turned to a few reality stars — particularly the Kardashians — in preparation for her role!
"I watched a lot of Keeping up with the Kardashians and The Hills, and I tried to understand the psychology of this kind of girl as much as possible… I didn't want her to be just a parody. The accent was hard as it was a particular kind of dialect. I also thought a lot about what her parents must have been like."
LOLz! Who knew Kim could’ve been such an inspiration?! Then again, we're sure another E! star had more to do with her character… you know, one by the name of Alexis Neiers! Ka-duh!
Emma also went on to say that the film, though based on real events, is closer to a game of delusional role playing:
"This really isn't a heist movie. It was about how these kids wanted to pretend for just two hours or so that they were actually Paris Hilton and living that life."
AH-MAZING!!!! We really CANNOT WAIT to see this and Emma’s best take on Kim!
