Confessions of an Heiress
Posted On May 17, 2016
The misunderstood Paris Hilton we were introduced to decades ago on “The Simple Life” is no longer. To set the record straight, Hilton is producing an “unflinching, authorized documentary” detailing the real Paris.
On Wednesday, 9.14 Pictures and XYZ Films announced at the Cannes Film Festival that an untitled documentary peering into the life of the “businesswoman, entrepreneur, and media icon” is in the works. According to the Hollywood Reporter, in the project, Hilton will discuss exactly what made her famous, reflect on how the spotlight has contributed to who she is today, and examine the impact her image has made on young women today.
Last year, Paris graced the cover of New You magazine, and after Executive Editor Ruchel Louis-Coetzee spoke with the American socialite, we learned that she is more than a paparazzi plaything. Paris has a big heart and has been doing charity work since she was a little girl.
Hilton shared with us, “Anytime I visit certain countries, I will visit different orphanages. There’s this one orphanage in particular, in India, where all the children were left there because their parents died of aids. The children had it as well, and they were all in there so sick and it broke my heart.”
“I know that I have a voice to help those who don’t [have a voice], and I’m really going to dedicate my life a lot to that in the upcoming years,” she continued.
There has been no word whether or not the documentary will include any service trips. Don Argott and Sheena Joyce are set to direct the project, which will kick off production in Ibiza at the end of the summer.
“Paris Hilton is a modern day Marilyn Monroe – beautiful, iconized, world-famous, shaped by mass media and misunderstood,” Argott and Joyce said. “We are thrilled to work with Paris to explore her complicated relationship with the public, the press and the politics that shape our perception of a modern celebrity.”
