Emma Watson Shocked By Paris Hilton’s Frivolous Spending

Emma Watson has slammed materialistic celebrities who fill their wardrobes with things they’ll never wear.

The 23-year-old actress was recently inside Paris Hilton’s mansion shooting part of new movie ‘The Bling Ring’, and couldn’t believe the amount of clothes the socialite owned that would never see the light of day.

“It’s almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania. She could never wear all of those clothes and half of them were brand new and still had the price tag on,” Emma told Radio Times magazine.

“But I suppose she just bought them to have them. We’ve all bought things on impulse but that’s an entirely different thing,” she added.

Watson revealed that, despite her own fortune (which is reportedly over $40 million), she’ll never understand the obsession some celebrities have with frivolous spending and says she herself is still very careful not to blow her money on things she doesn’t need.

“I’ve got about eight pairs of shoes and that’s it,” the actress revealed.

Emma, who shot to fame at a young age starring in the ‘Harry Potter’ movies, says she’s noticed a new breed of celebrity over recent years (presumably reality stars) who aren’t famous because of the movies they’re in or their musical careers – but for absolutely nothing.

“There’s a whole new definition to celebrity now. And I think that’s why you see a lot of actors blanching at being associated with that word ‘celebrity’ because it’s become something that isn’t really associated with having a craft,” Watson explained.

“But it’s easy for me to sound like a total hypocrite because, of course, I’m dressed in designer clothes right now.”

Emma previously revealed that she doesn’t like to wear designer clothes or dress up in public because it draws attention to her.

“I don’t carry a designer handbag. I think people recognize me less when I don’t wear make-up. I just try to be as low-key as I can possibly manage when I’m not working,” she explained.

“If you go out in glamorous clothes, people will just naturally pay more attention to you. If that’s what you’re trying to avoid, then that’s what you’ve got to figure out.”
