Emma Watson Made A Tumblr To Get Into Character For “The Bling Ring”

The Bling Ring” has already been in theaters for a couple of weeks now, and I am thoroughly embarrassed to admit that I’ve yet to see it. It’s not for lack of wanting to see it — I’ve been waiting on this film for, like, actual human years — but because the majority (75 percent, in fact) of my preferred moviegoing partners are not in the same time zone as me at the moment, let alone area code. And also, maybe just a LITTLE, because I live in great fear of finding myself disappointed by the film based off one of my favorite True Hollywood Stories of all time, not to mention the most transfixing shitshow of a reality TV series to ever hit E! (which, obviously, is really saying something). But I have a bit more confidence in the handling of the stranger-than-fiction tale knowing that Nicki Moore, the character based off of “Pretty Wild” star Alexis Neiers, is in the very capable hands of Emma Watson, who went so Method as to create a Tumblr for the role. As in, a Tumblr from the perspective of Nicki Moore, as penned by Emma Watson… and man, oh man, does Emma hit all the bases. From shoddy cityscape camera phone photos to a touching tribute to Lindsay Lohan and her “spirituality,” NickiMooreForever2012 is pretty much on point. [Crushable]
