That's right. In a new interview, Hilton revealed she is dropping the whole ditzy rich girl act and wants to be recognized for who she really is — a hardworking entrepreneur!
Speaking to Access Hollywood sans her signature nasally, "that's hot" voice, the businesswoman shared:
"I am a very hardworking businesswoman and entrepreneur, and that's what I want to be known as now."
Hilton explained her public persona was crafted by the producers of her breakout reality show The Simple Life, confessing:
"They said Nicole[Richie] you play the trouble maker, Paris you play the ditzy airhead.' We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into or what a huge success it would be and that I'd have to continue playing this character for five years… You kind of just get trapped in that character when you have to continue doing it on a TV show."
So this whole time, Paris Hilton was really just the most dedicated method actor on television?
