Los Angeles, July 5: Actress Emma Watson always wanted to be like singer Emma Bunton when she was growing up.
“The Bling Ring” actress admits she was obsessed with the former Spice Girls band member when she was a youngster. She even fought with her friend over who got to play blonde-haired Emma, whose nickname in the group was Baby Spice.
"I was so obsessed with The Spice Girls as a seven or eight-year-old girl. I wanted to be Emma Bunton. She was so, so cute,” contactmusic.com quoted Watson as saying.
“I had a friend called Ellie, and we would fight because she had blonde hair, so she thought she should get to be Emma and I said my name was Emma, so I should definitely get to be Emma. This went on for months,” she added.
For “The Bling Ring”, based on a true story about a group of young people who broke into famous people's houses in Los Angeles, Watson got to film in socialite Paris Hilton's home.
