Poof! Hermione Granger is no more.
In anticipation of her next big screen adventure – the film Bling Ring, which is based on a group of Los Angeles teens who broke into the homes of celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan – Emma Watson has Tweeted a photo of herself on set.
“Twitterers meet Nicki, Nicki meet twitterers : ),” Watson wrote along with the above photo, adding: “Nicki likes Lip Gloss, Purses, Yoga, Pole Dancing, Uggs, Louboutins, Juice Cleanses, Iced coffee and Tattoos.”
And we love Emma, one of the most grounded, well-spoken young stars alive.

Emma Watson celebrates a birthday today.
And although it may seem hard to believe – because she’s been in our lives for so long and because she comes across as more mature than many celebrities twice her age – the young woman behind Hermione Granger is only 22 years old.
Send in your birthday wishes to the beautiful star now and then click through the following photo montage in her honor:
Watson will next be seen in The Bling Ring, a film based on a real-life clique of fame-obsessed teenagers used tracked the whereabouts of various stars – from Paris Hilton to Orlando Bloom to AshleyMore >
What’s not to love about celebrity mug shots?
Most of the time, they accompany great stories, and serve as reminders that stars are human, just like us (or contribute even less to society in some cases).
Here’s a look at some of THG’s top celebrity mug shots of the past year. Randy and Evi Quaid (directly below) made the gallery multiple times, as did DMX.
Lindsay Lohan, too. In one calendar year, that’s an impressive feat. We also included Charlie Sheen’s Christmas meltdown mug shot from 2009. Enjoy:
L.A. Superior Court Judge Peter Espinoza ordered alleged reality TV star Alexis Neiers to one year of residential drug treatment (rehab) at a hearing today.
He threatened to throw the Pretty Wild star behind bars if she violates her probation again like she did with her recent black tar heroin arrest, reports say.
Prior to the ruling, Neiers’ lawyer put it all out there for the court: “My client has an addiction to heroin. We would like you to sentence her accordingly.”
PRETTY STUPID WILD: Alexis Neiers beat the rap for now.
Judge Espinoza agreed, but warned her: “If you violate probationMore >
Pretty Wild star Alexis Neiers’ probation was revoked after her recent black tar heroin arrest. That will usually do it. She was ordered to be held without bail.
Pending a hearing Thursday, she’ll be chilling in jail. The E! reality star had been on probation after being arrested in a celebrity burglary ring last year.
Alexis Neiers was arrested this week when she failed to check in with her probation officer, cops came to her home in response and found her with heroin.
BLING RING: Also known as the Burglar Bunch, these tools broke into a lot of celebrity homes. It’s not Alexis Neiers’More >
Welcome to another edition of The Hollywood Gossip Week in Review. Follow THG on Twitter and Facebook for 24/7/365 coverage. Right now, let’s look back at the stars, stories and scandals that made headlines this week …
Britwick puts on a united front.
- Controversy erupted over rumors of Jason Trawick beating Britney Spears.
- The birthday girl had this message for those who made up the story.
- Lady Gaga cried in concert, and her reason for doing so is debated.
- Protesters in Bosnia were livid with Angelina Jolie and her film.
- Ann Ward was named America’s Next Top Model (it’s still on)!
In the most shocking news since Alexis Neiers’ arrest for heroin possession, Vivid Entertainment has confirmed it will soon release a sex tape starring Brittney Jones, the woman who claims she slept with Ashton Kutcher.
As THG first reported in late September, an ex-boyfriend claims to be behind this footage (and, presumably, Jones). In a press release Vivid Chairman Steven Hirsch said today:
“We’ve acquired the tape and confirmed its authenticity. Brittney is obviously a beautiful young girl who could clearly seduce any man.”More >
These Alexis Neiers booking photos may not rank among the most infamous of the 279 celebrity mug shots in our gallery (a classic gallery), but they’re hilarious.
Free bird? Not so much after this, sweetheart!
As we reported earlier, Alexis Neiers got popped for a probation violation, heroin possession and a fake ID. That t-shirt is looking like wishful thinking …
PRETTY WILD (AND FUNNY): Maybe they can issue a custom orange jumpsuit with “Free Bird” emblazoned on the back in honor of this reality star/train wreck.
Lindsay Lohan is certainly no stranger to being on the receiving end of a body cavity search. But a recent one may have violated more than her morals.
If the actress was subjected to a strip search at Lynwood Correctional Facility, lawyers want her to spill every detail of that experience in a deposition.
Lindsay’s name is included in class action lawsuit that alleges unlawful strip and body cavity searches were conducted by L.A. County Sheriff’s deputies.
The lawsuit has been filed on behalf of an inmate (not Lindsay Lohan) who recently checked into the jail. But she may be deposed asMore >
(HMG) – Reports are coming in about Lindsay Lohan’s jail stay, and it is hard to tell which ones are real, and which ones are just the baseless hearsay from fellow inmates.
The NY Daily News had an interesting article today, which quoted two main sources. The first was an inmate who just got out, reality “star” Alexis Neiers, from E!’s ‘Pretty Wild’.
According to her, the first day Lindsay was a mess, spending most of her time crying. This seems like it would probably be pretty accurate, especially on the first day.
The second source is the relative of an inmate, who is presumably gettingMore >
While reports start to spread about Lindsay Lohan’s greatly reduced prison term, the troubled actress can look to Alexis Neiers for inspiration.
That E! reality star was freed from jail yesterday after serving just 30 days of a 180-day sentence. She was arrested earlier this year for her part in the “bling ring,” as a bunch of morons went around stealing from celebrities.
Neiers has released this statement:
“I’ve had time to reflect on my life and the choices that led me to this experience, left alone in my cell 23 hours a day and having everything stripped away but the bare essentials. IMore >
Baby-faced Alexis Neiers, a star of E! Online’s Pretty Wild, might look pretty innocent, but she was recently sentenced to six months jail time for her part in a series of celebrity burglaries that included the home of actor Orlando Bloom. Neiers says she “didn’t do anything wrong.” Of course, that was to E! News. At first she had planned to defend herself and clear her name, but then she changed her mind and decided to enter a non-contest plea.
Hmm. Why do that if you’re not guilty? Just because Bloom was going to testify means nothing, if you’re truly innocent. Did he have a piece ofMore >
