Paris Hilton is set to play herself in a movie which sees her being targeted by a group of Hollywood teenagers. ‘The Bling Ring’ is based on a true story which saw stars including Paris, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox and Lindsay Lohan become the victims of a group of youths who robbed celebrity’s homes in the Hollywood Hills.
‘Harry Potter’ actress Emma Watson features as one of the gang members and she is currently shooting the film in Los Angeles, along with Kirsten Dunst. Director Sofia Coppola wanted to find one of the original victims to feature in it and decided he 31-year-old hotel heiress would be perfect for the cameo role.
A source close to production revealed that Paris has appeared at the Sayers Club wearing a Swarovski crystal dress and Christian Louboutin heels to film a scene with Emma and Bush rocker Gavin Rossdale, who plays a shady club promoter.
Paris has previously had a starring role in romantic comedy, ‘The Hottie and the Nottie’, a performance which earned her a worst actress prize at the 2009 Razzies.
