As if to make up for the fact that she's amassed a fortune estimated at £26 million, Emma Watson seems permanently at pains to point out that she's just a normal kid from the block.

Discussing her upcoming movie The Bling Ring , in which she plays Alexis Neiers - one of the group of teenagers incarcerated for burgling the homes of Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson and Paris Hilton - Watson was overwhelmed by the latter's collection of clothes and accessories when she visited it to film scenes for the Sophia Coppola-directed movie.

Of heiress Hilton's wardrobe, who famously left a spare key under her doormat, she said: "She could never wear all of those clothes and half of them were brand new and still had the price tag on. But I suppose she just bought them to have them. We've all bought things on impulse but that's an entirely different thing."

She added: "It's almost like consumerism as a form of kleptomania."

And then she dropped the bombshell: "I've got about eight pairs of shoes and that's it," before following up that statement with: "But it's easy for me to sound like a total hypocrite because, of course, I'm dressed in designer clothes right now."

Indeed, Watson is usually dripping in designer wares when she's photographed in public; this month alone she's sported four different pair of high heels, no doubt lent by fashion labels and then returned once she's done on the red carpet.

An eagle-eyed trawl of Watson photographed off-duty reveals that she in fact owns at least four pairs of ballet shoes; two pairs of black boots; nude sandals; brown sandals; some cream derby shoes… Come on Emma, even us civilians have more than eight pairs of shoes in our wardrobe - and we're more than happy to admit it.
