Bling Ring star isn't a big spender


Emma Watson has criticised celebrities such as Paris Hilton for their extravagant lifestyles.

The actress plays young thief Nicki in new movie The Bling Ring, based on the true story of a group of teenagers who stole over £2 million of luxury goods from the homes of famous people.

Paris, 32, was a victim of the gang and allowed scenes for the movie to be filmed at her house, giving Emma an insight into her vast wardrobe.

It’s almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania,’ Emma, 23, tells Radio Times.

‘She could never wear all of those clothes and half of them were brand new and still had the price tag on.

But I suppose she just bought them to have them. We’ve all bought things on impulse but that’s an entirely different thing.’

Emma might be worth more than £26 million herself but she has far more modest spending habits.

I’ve got about eight pairs of shoes and that’s it,’ the Harry Potter star says.
