Emma Watson has made a trip to jail in Los Angeles, but it is all for her latest film role.

The star is currently shooting the movie The Bling Ring in the US, based on the true story of a group of teenage girls who broke in to the homes of stars living in LA.

Watson has been shooting scenes which see her character taken to jail and was shown in a smart skirt and blouse, as well as sporting a chic pair of pearl earrings and a long string of pearls.

The Linwood jail used in the filming may be recognisable to some followers of celebrity gossip, as it is the same prison where Lindsay Lohan, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie have all served time.

Ironically, both Lohan and Hilton were victims of the actions of the gang of thieves and had thousands of dollars worth of jewellery and clothing stolen from their homes.
