Forget Versailles! A new photo shoot in the July issue of ELLE takes a very personal tour of Paris Hilton’s very personalized Beverly Hills home – which makes a cameo in this month’s The Bling Ring – all shot by the film’s director, Sofia Coppola. Paris dishes on what she hopes viewers learn from watching The Bling Ring, and even what she’d say to the thieves that broke into her home if she came face-to-face with them. Check out the highlights from the interview below.
Sofia Coppola on the first time she visited Paris Hilton’s home:
“I saw the pillows adorned with [Paris’] face and I took my picture with them. She’s such a pop icon and has a sense of humor about herself. I think she was the first to really make herself into a brand. She’s so dedicated to her style.”
Hilton on what she hopes viewers learn from watching The Bling Ring:
“There’s much more to life than all of these possessions and everything. And if you want those things, you’re going to have to work yourself, just like I did.”
Hilton on what she would say to the thieves who broke into her home if she ever saw them face-to-face:
“I don’t know what I’d do if I saw them. I’m not a confrontational person. But I would literally be like, ‘You guys need serious help. And I want my stuff back.’”
Coppola on what she wants viewers to take from the film:
“If nothing else, when people see it, everyone wants a Paris pillow. We might have to make those.”
