Some stars, like, say, Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, seem to grow up all at once, going from Disney fare to Spring Breakers-type tales with barely a blip between. Emma Watson is about to take on her most adult role to date in Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring, but we’ve literally watched her grow up before our eyes, as Hermione in Harry Potter and then her “adolescence” in The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.
That’s why we feel totally ready to see Emma take on a more grown-up bad girl role in The Bling Ring. See a new teaser poster and find out more about the movie below!

The Bling Ring is the anticipated new film from Sofia Coppola, director of The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation, and Marie Antoinette. Those movies are all about young women breaking out of their shells and engaging in questionable behavior, and that couldn't be more true of The Bling Ring. Emma plays a woman who steals from the rich to give to... herself, naturally. Robin Hood this is not.
While this sure sounds like the stuff of fantasy ― because who doesn't want to live the lush celebrity life without doing all the work? ― it's actually a true story. The real-life person the character is based on stole $3 million from stars like Paris Hilton. (Paris even cameos as herself in the movie!) Also worth noting: how freakin' hot does Emma look in this film?

This is definitely one of the summer movies we can hardly wait for. Emma, who just celebrated her 23rd birthday this week and was honored with a Trailblazer Award at the MTV Movie Awards, could hardly be any more on fire at the moment. The Bling Ring looks to be her breakout role as an adult actress, and we're sure it'll be just one of many exciting roles to come!
