While The Bling Ring’s most famous victim, Paris Hilton, didn’t waste a second jumping on the film’s press bandwagon, other targets of the troop of young thieves — including Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox, and Rachel Bilson — aren’t too happy with the light the film sheds on the string of 2009 robberies. And now Bilson has spoken out against Sofia Coppola’s glamorized portrayal of the high profile larcenies.
“I thought it was weird to glorify something that was so upsetting for a lot of people,” Bilson told Entertainmentwise. “It’s important to detach from material things, but the special, personal things I lost are hard to forget.”
It seems Bilson’s The OC co-star, Mischa Barton, also has some embittered feelings towards the film. No doubt due to the film’s reference to her 2007 DUI arrest.
“The whole idea of this movie, granted, I haven’t seen it, creeps me out #theblingring. #undeserved,” Barton tweeted. “Really #sofiacoppola #theblingring my name? Shame on you.”
We’re totally hoping for a war of words between Marissa Cooper, Summer Roberts, and Coppola, and we’ve got a popcorn bucket at the ready.
