Emma Watson might be a huge movie star, but she's not your typical Hollywood starlet -- and she has nothing in common with the materialistic and fame-obsessed teens who inspired the characters in her movie "The Bling Ring."

So to get into character, (which was based on real-life Bling Ring member Alexis Neiers) Watson tried her hand at method acting and created a horrifying Tumblr for her character, reports Styleite.

Called "NickiMooreForever," the 16-post Tumblr was created in March 2012, and it 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 Lohan, Angelina Jolie and Audrina Patridge. We could have sworn Neiers wrote it herself if we didn't know better.

The entire Tumblr is a not-so-subtle takedown of Neiers, though Watson never bothered to hide her feelings towards of the former "Pretty Wild" star, either.

"The character is everything that I felt strongly against -- she's superficial, materialistic, vain, amoral. She's all of these things and I realized that I hated her. How do you play someone you hate?" Watson told British GQ in May. "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."

Neiers, who isn't a fan of the movie, was accused of stealing from some of young Hollywood's biggest stars and pled no contest to felony burglary charges -- for which she served 30 days of a 180-day sentence in 2010.
