Paris Hilton: ‘I’m Not an Air Head’

Posted by Adam

"The Bling Ring" Los Angeles Premiere - ArrivalsPARIS Hilton is no air heard.

The actress — who developed a reputation for being ditzy after starring alongside her then-best friend Nicole Richie in reality show The Simple Life — says she developed a persona for TV.

“When we did that, it was the first reality show. I’d never been on camera in my life. I didn’t really know what to do,” she said.

“The producers told Nicole to be the troublemaker and me to be the ditzy blonde rich girl. I tried to play a character … I didn’t realize I would end up doing that character for five years.

“There are a lot of misconceptions about me because people know me from The Simple Life. They didn’t understand that I was acting and I was being a character so they assume I’m a complete airhead.”
