Emma Watson thinks Kim Kardashian and her family are ‘super-low culture’- but she still loves keeping up with the Kardashians, not to mention pole-dancing.
Metro reported that even a serious Brown University senior like Watson, 22, can’t help watching trashy TV starring Kim Kardashian. But it’s all in the name of research for the former ‘Harry Potter’ actress, who became famous for her role as Hermione Granger in the popular mega franchise.
According to Metro, part of her studies forced Emma Watson to watch the E! show ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ for research purposes. She classed the reality shows of Kim Kardashian and her family as “super-low culture.”
The Daily Mirror reported that Watson fitted into her provocative role in ‘Bling Ring’ by watching Kim Kardashian and the Kardashian clan in action. Emma Watson confirmed that she indeed immersed herself in her ‘Bling Ring’ character by watching “a ton of reality television.”
“I was doing an English course,” Watson explained, “So I would go from reading Virginia Woolf to Kim Kardashian. I kind of loved it,” she admitted, calling her contrasting interests a “mix of super-high and super-low culture.”
It’s been a time of experimentation for Emma Watson. She tried her hand at pole-dancing as a sport, and the young star considered it to be very liberating.
“Like on all film sets,” a source on ‘Bling Ring’ reported to the UK tabloid The Sun, “There’s often so much time spent doing nothing.”
According to The Sun source, one of Emma’s sister actresses had taken up pole-dancing as a sport for a while. Curious, Emma Watson decided to try it out.
“She’s amazed with the results,” the source claimed of Emma Watson, “Because it has toned up her body so well. She never thought she would enjoy it,” added the source, “But she finds it quite liberating.”
