‘The Bling Ring’ Made Paris Hilton Cry

Sofia Coppola’s new film, which had its premiere at Cannes Film Festival, is based on the true story of a group of young fame-obsessed teens who get their kicks from breaking into and robbing the homes of famous people. One celebrity in particular is Paris Hilton, who has a cameo in the film. Hilton claims the film was so realistic and affecting that she nearly cried in the theater while she was watching it. “During some parts of it, I literally had tears in my eyes and I wanted to cry. I knew what happened with the burglaries, but I had never actually seen it — so watching it happen, I was like, ‘Oh my God, this really happened to me. These kids were really in my house and did this to me.’ It’s so violating. It just made me really angry and upset, and when I see these kids, I want to, like, slap them.” [via Vulture]
