back to article Hilton documentary reveals hidden side of Paris

Paris Hilton and documentary filmmaker Adria Petty were last night wearing their posh frocks at the Toronto Film Festival for the premiere of the latter's Paris, Not France - the result of a year trailing around after the talented heiress. According the Beeb, the film shows our fave socialite "at work on red carpets, in her …

    "I knew within a minute that she was ... hard-working."

    Only one minute to work out someone is hard working? Someone please explain this to my boss.

    I didn't know all that...

    "cool chick, a smart girl, and hard-working"

    I knew first and the third one from her "films" but that she's smart? News to me!

    Paris with question marks - for obvious reasons!

    To see a new side of her is so exciting

    It seems to me that, as boring as the old side of her was, this new side is mind-numbingly boring.

    Surely there are many slim, rich women who don't spend 24 hours a day on a chaise? I don't want to watch a film about any of them either.

    ...after all, I have already seen all of her online.

    talented for a 30 minute video me thinks...

    at work on red carpets - cleaning them or walking on them? doesn't take a genius to walk straight though I'm sure she struggles with the concept (oh look this carpet doesn't match my nails, i can't possibly walk on that)

    in her business dealings - night shot videos? What business, trying to make money out of muppets through pointless tv appearances? Or in buying new fashion pets?

    taking about her image - that's all she ever does!

    and relaxing at home - so doing sod all with her talentless ass, clearly.

    paris, well duh!

    Errr, you missed one

    "Cool chick" - I thought she was supposed to be hot (as in totty), hot (as in to trot), and hot (news). I don't know if that counts as one or two, as she does not seem to chicken out of much.

    Hot off being pressed, however, one can't argue with.

    Ah, crap, you stole the comment from me ...

    "hard at work on carpets", LOL, Petty has obviously no idea of her filmo.

    Adria Petty?

    Daughter of rocker Tom Petty?

    Thinks Paris is hardworking, smart and cool?

    NOW it makes sense.

    As long as there are people who spend a year filming her, and other people who care about it, she's clearly not the stupidest person in the world.

    certainly wasn't lounging on a chaise eating cherries

    Of course not! They were grapes after all...

    "Wait, there is a side of Paris we haven't yet seen ?"

    Yes! The inside, man... the inside! Don't want either, I suppose all stomachs look pretty much the same.

    Yay, legit use of the icon, even if the P angle is actually there.

    It has endlessly amused me the last few years to witness El Reg readers swallowing the Paris party line, viz. that she's a dimwit and an airhead of the first water with nothing more on her mind than spreading her legs.

    She's very successfully created an airhead persona for public view, and she's making a lot of money out of that myth. In fact, she's a lot smarter and a lot cannier businesswoman than she ever lets on.

    Good for her!

    more sexual innuendo please

    I catch up on IT news at work and would like nothing more than to be sacked because of the sophomoric machito drivel that gets mixed in with the IT news and dry wit that I enjoy.

    Oh, to have all my time free to look for the dirty parts of the Reg and point them out to my friends to remind them what a hip, happening and all-around fabgear dude I am.

    I'm well aware of the fact that dirty bits are to be found in the canon of English literary classics, although they aren't what make the classics classic. They do, however, serve to alienate women and various ethnic groups so let's see more of this in the Reg!

    Those crazy scientists must have managed to create an alternate universe and I've been somehow transferred to it.

    Perhaps this is an antimatter universe and what I'm reading is about the anti-Paris.

    Wow, maybe there's an anti-Tom Cruse who's straight.

    @ je s'amuse (RW)

    You may need to work on your French, but at least you've seen a bit beyond the veneer.

    Airhead or not (and I'd vote for not, knowing the kind of world she lives in), the raw fact is that the girl doesn't need an inheritance as she's cashing in at a rate that every other celeb can only dream of.

    So it's jealousy - she takes in a day what quite a few not even make in a year. If that requires accepting being called dumb, well, that's smart too.

    Paris, because there is only one.

    Speak for yerself...

    Quote: "... just like everyone else I wondered what she was all about."

    Everyone else? Everyone? Well, I for one have never "wondered what she was all about." What is there to wonder about? She's a vacuous rich spoiled 'Murccan bimbo, whose main purpose in life is to act as an object of ridicule for us El Reg commentards.

    Now, that Sarah Bee - I've often admiringly wondered what she's all about ;)

    Paris is a savvy girl

    born with a silver spoon in her gob, but she has worked the media, and there is a head on those shoulders.

    Those porn tapes were probably leaked on purpose, shows she has a penchant for the harder things in life.

    yeah but..

    I'm not a big fan of the whole paris thing..

    but you gotta think for a moment.

    For someone that seems like a ditzy blonde girl, she's making a bucketload more money than all of us.

    Clearly there is something smart behind the "image" you see on tv.

    Most likely a team of people i'd say.

    Pretty much all of her outside. (not impressed)

    Some of her inside. (definitely not impressed)

    A bit of what was outside going inside (negatively impressed)

    Hard Working..?

    I was in Paris a few months ago for work.. started at 10, went for lunch at 12 and got back in the office for 3. Then after a couple of coffees and a couple of smokes I was out of there at half 4...

    Yes, hard wroking indeed.

    The media...

    are after all in the business of making money. It's generally in their interest to make things out in such a way that more people will watch it.

    I would not be surprised in the least if it turned out that Paris was, if not actually intelligent, then at least average.

    Certainly not the bumbling, stupid, ditzy barbie doll that the press made her out to be.
