In Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring," Emma Watson plays Nicki, a character based on the real-life Bling Ring member and reality TV darling Alexis Neiers. Watson's portrayl of the rebellious teen has been called "sensational" by critics, but one person who can't weigh in on Watson's performance is Neiers herself.

The 22-year-old former "Pretty Wild" star hasn't seen the movie.

Neiers told E! Online that she hasn't had time to see "The Bling Ring," explaining, "With an 8-week-old baby there's just no way."

Lest fans think she's taking a stand against the film, Neiers adds that she will see the film in the future. "Of course I would go and see it," Neiers told E! Online. "I have to remind myself that it's a dramatization of actual events and people are like, ‘Are you going to be upset by it?' Honestly, no, I'm in a good place now, so why not have a laugh at myself."

Neiers seems to have a more positive outlook on the film now than she has in recent weeks. The new mother, who is portrayed in the film with her group of friends as the California teens that famously broke into the homes of celebrities, previously spoke out against Coppola's "Bling Ring," calling it "trashy and inaccurate."

"The Bling Ring," which opened to a limited release on June 14, has reached a domestic gross of $2.3 million.
