While Emma Watson puts her Harry Potter days behind her, she opened up about how she had to learn how to pole dance for her new flick, The Bling Ring, and all we have to say is homegirl is definitely growing up!!
"I did learn to pole dance for the film, and I have a small pole dancing scene. But it’s not a performance for anyone else, it’s just me messing around with my friends. I took lessons.
I had this surreal experience where I was studying the modernists, writing about Virginia Woolf on Friday night, then driving to London for pole dancing classes on Saturday morning.
I was incredibly ungraceful at first. The upper-body strength and the core strength you need to do it gracefully is crazy.
I take my hat off to the women who can do it. You have to be incredibly strong."
Pole dancing is NOT the easiest thing to do considering that it incorporates dance, gymnastics and acrobatics.
Whoo! That sounds tough!!
Good thing Emma got lessons from professionals, because without 'em, she probably would've just danced by the pole and not on it. LOLz
Ch-ch-check out the actress do her thing (below)!
