Real life Bling Ring victim Rachel Bilson has spoken out against Sofia Coppola's new film, The Bling Ring.

The actress was among a number of stars, including Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom, whose homes were targeted by a gang of young thieves between 2008 and 2009.

I thought it was weird to glorify something that was so upsetting for a lot of people. 

The case of the celebrity burglar bunch inspired Coppola's new film The Bling Ring, starring Emma Watson and featuring victim Hilton in a cameo role.

However Bilson, who reportedly lost her mother's engagement ring in the break-in, insists she doesn't agree with the decision to make the movie.

"I thought it was weird to glorify something that was so upsetting for a lot of people," she tells Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine.

"It's important to detach from material things, but the special, personal things I lost are hard to forget."

Bilson testified during the trial of real life gang members and revealed the burglary left her so scared, she couldn't sleep in her bedroom for weeks afterwards.

"It took me a while to feel comfortable staying there. I wouldn't sleep in my bedroom for about a month. And I was convinced that I needed to sell my house and get out of there, because I was very scared. But I'm still there."
