Emma Watson Revamping Her Image

The first thing a child actor does when transitioning into an adult actor is go for an “edgier” role. That or leak a bunch of nude self-shots she took of herself. Emma Watson will sadly be going the former route and will co-star in the “sex and drug filled coming-of-age film The Perks of Being a Wallflower” with Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev.

“The world has only seen her basically in one role—a pretty conservative, sweet, smart character, which is great,” Watson’s Wallflower costar Nina Dobrev told us earlier today while promoting her PSA for Puma’s breast cancer charity organization Project Pink. “But this one, she pushes the envelope in a different way than anyone’s ever seen her, which is really great. It’s a great role for her.”

“I think they’re going to be excited to see her in something else,” Dobrev says. “And see her spread her wings and try different things. It’s always exciting to see someone you love do something different and see a different side of them.”

And it sounds like we’ll be seeing a new side to the Vampire Diaries actress as well.

“My character is a victim of abuse,” Dobrev says. “So she’s abused, and [my brother] Charlie [played by Logan Lerman] witnesses that. That’s kind of my drama of the movie.” [E!]

How edgy will this be? Emma’s character Sam has “a Rocky Horror-inspired scene in which she dances around in a corset.” Oh, so not edgy at all, you mean? I’ve seen edgier stuff at a children’s play. If some guy doesn’t walk in on Emma Watson and Nina Dobrev and say he’s here for the gangbang, I’m throwing my hands in the air and leaving.

you’re filth, you gutter-minded horror…why can’t we encourage people to be fun AND clean?

a new character is fine, but its the attitude is the persona that people fall in love with. that’s what made her a success and that’s what makes any entertainer a success.

Perks is a great story and I think Emma will do a wonderful job as Sam.

Amen to that! This movie sounds more boring than watching your clothes dry! In fact, I’d rather watch my clothes dry! If there’s no nude scene or something forget it!
