For the first time ever, Paris Hilton speaks candidly about the infamous sex tape in which she starred, in the documentary premier of Paris, Not France.
Airing tonight at 8:30 p.m. on MTV, The documentary was directed by Adria Petty, Tom Petty‘s daughter. The documentary was shot during a year in the life of being Paris Hilton.
Paris tells RadarOnline.com, “I’m not a cartoon character. I don’t want people to feel bad for me, but it’s very hard to be subjected to constant scrutiny by the public. More than anything, I want this documentary to be a lesson to young girls.”
“If a private, intimate moment that was never intended to be made public–it could happen to them also. It’s something that haunts me to this day. It’s embarrassing to know the whole world has seen the sex tape.”
Paris has no shame about the tape anymore.
“I have nothing to be ashamed of. I know that now, as I’m older and more mature. It was nothing I planned. I want young girls to never put themselves in that situation I was in. Don’t ever let someone talk you into doing something you don’t want to do.”
Adria tells us the Paris she knows, isn’t the one the public sees, “the person I got to know is beyond clever, and and funny. It was truly refreshing in comparison to the person the public thinks she is.”
“Paris, Not France” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year.
