Practically every review praised the actress’ turn as Nicki based on Alexis Neiers, who had a short-lived reality series on E! Network.

Watson proves that her willingness to take chances is only growing, and that she’s an actress serious enough to turn a line like “Your butt looks awesome!” into something that reveals character. – Entertainment Weekly

2. Watson was inspired by the Kardashians and The Hills.

To prep for the role she watched several TV shows to get a sense of the fame-obsessed reality of Neiers.

The accent was hard as it was a particular kind of dialect. I also thought a lot about what her parents must have been like.” – US Weekly
