Hilton documentary reveals hidden side of Paris

'A cool chick, a smart girl, and hard-working'

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 business dealings, taking about her image, and relaxing at home".

Petty said of the project: "I didn't really go in with too many prejudices against her, but just like everyone else I wondered what she was all about. As soon as I met her, I knew within a minute that she was a cool chick, a smart girl, and hard-working."

In fact, Petty insisted, Ms Hilton "certainly wasn't lounging on a chaise eating cherries".

All of this will come as a terrible shock to all of us who like our Paris just the way she was - hard at work on carpets, lounging on a chaise taking people's cherries, and so forth. Accordingly, we're rejecting Petty's claim that "to see a new side of her is so exciting". ®
