Emma Watson the stripper????

Having played the same character for ten years, it's difficult to see Emma Watson as anyone other than goody two-shoes Hermione Granger.

However, the 22-year-old actress has bid farewell to her squeaky clean image by reportedly taking up pole-dancing classes as a means to get fit. Boyfriend Will Adamovicz, an American student she met at Oxford University, will certainly be pleased with her venture into the dance world.

A co-star on her new movie The Bling Ring is said to have encouraged Emma. A source told The Sun: 'One of the other actresses on the set has been pole-dancing as a sport for a while and Emma decided to give it a go. She's amazed with the results because it has toned up her body so well.'

The insider also said Emma was thrilled with how 'liberating' it is. Emma has been attempting to shrug off her Harry Potter stereotype for a while, stunning fans with her sudden transformation on set last month. The Burberry model was spotted on a number of occasions in tiny denim hotpants, killer heels and long brunette hair. But yesterday, Emma was back to her old self running errands in London.

The pretty actress went low-key and comfortable - a far cry from her sexy character Nicki - in jeans, flat boots and a knitted cardigan. The always-stylish actress turned model wore a Peter Pan-collar grey and white top and completed the look with warm scarf. Emma is back home after spending weeks shooting The Bling Ring in LA.

The film is the real-life story of a gang of teens who robbed the homes of a host of celebrities including Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom and Lindsay Lohan. Emma stars alongside Kirsten Dunst, Leslie Mann and Gavin Rossdale. Her character prefers a far flashier look than Emma, with costumes including stiletto heels, pink velour tracksuits and tiny crop tops.
