Paris Hilton was perhaps the biggest star of the early 2000s, even though she never really did anything to be famous for. She was one of the first celebrities to become a celebrity for celebrity's sake. She was known for her partying, her leaked sex tape, and saying "that's hot" in her babyish drawl. Similar to the Kardashians today, she was openly scorned by the media and considered fair game for all manner of insults.
But now a new documentary called 'This Is Paris' suggests this persona is a false one, partly created by tabloids, and partly created by Hilton herself as a form of self-protection. It paints a new picture of a troubled girl who suffered traumas that would lead her down a lonely, guarded path. Click on to see a previously hidden side of Paris Hilton.
