Former Harry Potter star Emma Watson has shed her squeak-clean image by parading the streets in a tiny shorts for her role in Sofia Coppola’s latest movie. The actress has signed up for a leading role in The Bling Ring, playing one of the real-life teens who stole from the homes of stars including Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom in 2008 and 2009. A series of images from the Los Angeles film set are set to shock the Brit’s younger fans as she has been photographed strutting in tiny shorts with short top, leather jacket and towering high heels. A sprawling temporary tattoo, applied to her back, completed Watson’s transformation into her rebellious character Nicki. The 21-year-old star was also seen filming a scene on the Venice Beach boardwalk in which she sells fake designer handbags. The film, which is also rumoured to star Kirsten Dunst, is due for release next year (13).                                              –CM
