Former child stars are sort of expected to go off the rails, develop an interest in drink/drugs, generally overexpose themselves and get into trouble.
But for the time being, Harry Potter star Emma Watson is getting her fill of bad behaviour from her latest role in The Bling Ring, the real-life tale of a gang of Hollywood teenagers who robbed celebrities’ homes.
In the Sofia Coppola film, Emma plays one of the gang members who breaks into Paris Hilton’s mansion (who, incidentally, was partying at Coachella this weekend).
And like any criminal who stumbles across a pole in a house they’re in the process of burgling, Emma’s character decides to give an impromptu pole-dancing performance.
Check out Emma, 22, doing her best sexy-dance in a micro-skirt, leather jacket and high heels.

Who knew Hermione knew such moves?
But it doesn’t sound like Emma enjoyed giving it some around the pole. “I’m just a really awkward sexy person, so basically the scene turned into me just messing around,” she admitted.
“You have to be very physically strong to hold your own body weight, and I really didn’t have that core strength initially, so that was pretty intimidating,” she added.
Speaking about the role she told GQ magazine: “When I read the script and realised that essentially it was a meditation on fame and what it’s become to our society, I had to do it.
“The character is everything that I felt strongly against – she’s superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral.”
Have a look at some more shots of Emma in action in the film right here:
Em is obviously eager to ditch her Wizardry typecast, and knew he had to move away from her clean-cut image. “I was open-minded about doing anything, but the one thing I didn’t want to do was get myself into a corset because I was worried I would never get out again.”
But the actress revealed that she’s definitely not prepared to strip off and whip out the nipple clamps by strongly denying she would star in the movie of 50 Shades Of Grey.
We know a lot of men who really hope she’d bluffing.
