‘Bling Ring’ Victim Rachel Bilson Angry At Film For ‘Glorifying’ Robberies
Rachel Bilson has expressed her anger over the ‘Bling Ring’ claiming it’s “weird” the film chose to “glorify” the crimes that affected a number of celebrities for the big screen.
The Hart Of Dixie actress wasn’t too impressed with Sofia Coppola’s movie, which is based on the real robberies of which she, Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan were victims.
Rachel was furious that the film seemingly glorifies crimes which resulted in her having her engagement ring and £200,000 worth of clothes and jewllery stolen.
“I thought it was weird to glorify something that was so upsetting for a lot of people,” Rachel fumed to Cosmopolitan. “It’s important to detach from material things, but the special, personal things I lost are hard to forget.”
Despite the 31-year-old’s squeaky clean image, the star was also victim to her own wild youth. The star had her own rebellious phase as a teenager but insists she outgrew the party lifestyle as she became older. “I went through a little bit of a wild phase when I was a teenager and got into trouble.” she revealed before adding: “It was just enough to make me feel like I’d done everything and I didn’t need to party as much as I got older.”
Shockingly the dramatic events that followed her character Summer in the popular teen drama weren’t so far from real life as revealed a car crash at 14 gave her a much needed wake-up call. “It definitely impacted me and how I was living my life. It was a wake-up call,” revealed the star, who has been in a steady relationship with ‘Jumper’ actor Hayden Christensen. “I had no choice but to wake up and get with the programme, but I think it set me in the right direction.”
Rachel’s former co-star on The OC, Misha Barton also criticised director Coppola for making a reference to her DUI arrest in the film, adding that the whole movie “creeps [her] out”. The troubled actress later took to twitter to fume about the movie mention writing: “Really #sofiacoppola #theblingring my name? Shame on you.”
