Darren Lynn Bousman reveals more about casting Paris Hilton in Repo!
“I was adamantly opposed to casting Paris because the first thing people said to me was, ‘Think of the press you’ll get if you put Paris in it.’ I thought, ‘Whatever horror cred I have is about to go down the toilet.’ “My mother calls me crying from Kansas City – ‘Why did you cast her, that charlatan?’ She was very upset.
“My mother logged onto this website and read, ‘Paris Hilton caught smoking dope in back alley.’ That’s not Paris Hilton. The paparazzi took pictures during a break while we were recording the soundtrack and she was drinking a water; the smoke was coming from the musicians smoking cigarettes.
“People spin these stories about her and that’s how they know Paris Hilton.
My idea of Paris, before I met her, was this really spoiled rich kid who is better than everyone else. As it turns out she was not the person I expected her to be. She was so charming.
“She stayed at the exact same hotel and ate at the same restaurants, and went to the same s**tty bar as all of us. I’m a dive bar kind of guy and she didn’t come with an entourage or a single dog. She had just gotten out of her legal trouble so it was important for her to show that she wasn’t this person. She really won me over.”

Translation: “I used to be a hater, but since she was willing to lower her standards, leave Tinks at home, and drink with me she is now ok.”
