Way back in March 2012 when Emma Watson learned she'd scored the role of  Alexis Neiers, one of a posse of thieves portrayed in the movie The Bling Ring, Watson figured she'd get into character by creating her own Tumblr.

Huffington Post reports:

Called "NickiMooreForever," the 16-post Tumblr does a great job of showing Watson's contempt for Neiers. She opted for a brilliantly tack zebra-print background, penned ramblings that close with the word "Namaste" and even authored fawning posts about Lindsay LohanAngelina Jolie and Audrina Patridge. We could have sworn Neiers wrote it herself if we didn't know better.

The Tumblr has since been updated with other lurid photos.

Clearly Watson has a healthy contempt for the character she plays in the movie, telling UK GQ two months ago "The character is everything that I felt strongly against -- she's superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She's all of these things and I realised that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate?"

Umm, you know she's based on a person, right Emma? A person who served time and still exists?

"But I found it really interesting and it gave me a whole new insight into what my job, or my role as an actress, could be."
