Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien Talk THE BLING RING

Bling-Ring-Israel-Broussard-Katie-Chang-Taissa-Farmiga-Claire-Julien

From writer/director Sofia Coppola, The Bling Ring tells the real-life story of a group of teenagers who were so obsessed with fashion and celebrity that they broke into celebrities’ homes in Los Angeles and stole their designer clothes and possessions.  When they didn’t get caught, they raised the stakes, becoming more and more bold, and what started out as teenage fun quickly spun out of control.

At the recent L.A. press day, we got the opportunity to chat with the actors and, unlike their characters in The Bling Ring, co-stars Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, Taissa Farmiga and Claire Julien come across as sweet, well-adjusted, well-spoken and far removed from the type of individuals that they’re portraying.  During the interview, they talked about their reactions when they learned this story was based on true events, what surprised them most about what happened and how these teenagers got away with it for so long, how they found a way to relate to their characters, and what a relief it was that they all got along and liked each other.  Watch the video after the jump.
