Paris Hilton Opens up About Life as the OG Influencer in 'This Is Paris' Documentary
Touching on issues like mental health and trauma.
UPDATE (September 14, 2020): After revealing a series of sneak peeks via YouTube, Paris Hilton has finally premiered her full This Is Paris documentary. As teased, the nearly two-hour-long film covers Paris’ life as the OG influencer, along with past traumas that she talks about for the first time ever.
The documentary begins with a montage of iconic moments Paris created in the 2000s, from red carpet scenes to an episode of South Park. One of the main issues the film touches on include mental health and trauma centered around the alleged incidents of abuse she experienced as a child.
“When I first started this film, I honestly don’t even recognize that person anymore,” Paris begins. “Ever since we started shooting this, I realized a lot more about myself. I’m nervous, I’m shaking, it’s hard to even eat because my stomach is just turning. It’s something that’s very personal and not something I like talking about,” the star continues, as she goes on to discuss what her life has looked like behind the cameras.
Featuring interviews from close friends like Kim Kardashian, the movie takes a deep dive into everything about Paris. Watch the full This Is Paris documentary above.
ORIGINAL STORY (August 18, 2020): A 2000s style icon, Paris Hilton is set to reveal the real side of her life through an upcoming YouTube Originals documentary titled, This Is Paris. In a new trailer for the film, the businesswoman and DJ is seen opening up about a childhood trauma that she hasn’t talked about anywhere else.
Directed by Alexandra Dean, the documentary was originally planned to debut at Tribeca Film Festival, which has been postponed due to COVID-19. “Something happened in my childhood that I’ve never talked with anyone,” Paris explains in the teaser, further adding: “I couldn’t tell you guys because every time I tried, I would get punished by them.”
Video footages show the reality star getting emotional, as well as scenes featuring her mom Kathy Hilton and sister Nicky Hilton Rothschild. “I still have nightmares about it and the only thing that saved my sanity was thinking about who I wanted to become when I got out of there,” Paris comments. As stated in the documentary’s synopsis, viewers will be able to see the celebrity “embark on a journey of healing and reflection, reclaiming her true identity along the way.”
This Is Paris is slated to premiere on September 14 at Paris Hilton’s YouTube channel.
