Emma Watson Learned How to Pole Dance for 'Bling Ring' Film

Emma Watson tells the new issue of GQ UK that she learned how to pole dance for her role in the upcoming Bling Ring. Hermione Granger on a pole? Sign me up!

Via the San Francisco Chronicle:

"I did learn to pole dance for the film, and I have a small pole-dancing scene. But it's not a performance for anyone else, it's just me messing around with my friends. I took lessons. When I was preparing for the role I was studying at Oxford. So I had this surreal experience where I was studying the modernists, writing about Virginia Woolf on Friday night, then driving to London for pole dancing classes on Saturday morning.

"I was incredibly ungraceful at first. The upper-body strength and the core strength you need to do it gracefully is crazy. I take my hat off to the women who can do it. You have to be incredibly strong."
