Sofia Coppola's film, "The Bling Ring" is set for release come spring. The film stars "Potter" and "Perks" actress, Emma Watson in all her bad-ass glory. Fans of Emma Watson are definitely excited with the news and to see the 22-year old set aside her Granger act.

Fans better start marking those calendars because "The Bling Ring" starring the one and only, Emma Watson, is soon to hit theatres by June 14. The Sofia Coppola-directed film is based on true events that revolve around a group of teenagers who steal off celebrity homes such as Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson and Paris Hilton.

The film not only stars Emma Watson but "American Horror Story's" Taissa Farmiga, Gavin Rossdale, Claire Julien and Katie Chang. While everyone else is excited to see Emma become the bad girl, Nicki, Watson opened up on the role and hating herself for it.  

"This is how much I hate myself in the movie: I don't think I'm going to be able to watch it," stated Emma in an interview with MTV, adding, "I hate myself. It was really weird. This is what's so awesome about my job, is that I had to get into the shoes of someone I couldn't relate to."

"I've never had to do that before, but by the end of it, I don't know, it was really interesting getting into this girl's head. She represents a lot of what I basically stand against. It was really fascinating to break it down, and be like, 'What is this actually about?' It made me like my job a lot," continued Watson.

"Perks of Being a Wallflower" didn't so much expose Emma's hidden dark side and fans are only hoping "The Bling Ring" promises a bit more. Check out the slideshow to see more of Emma Watson as Nicki.
