Paris Hilton claims she’s just pretending to be dumb

Paris Hilton wants everyone to know “she’s a really strong person who’s been through a lot.” Her dumb blonde image is just something she cooked up for The Simple Life to get even more rich which is actually kind of smart. If it were true. People reports:

“For five seasons I was stuck doing this character,” she says. “It was kind of hard always having to play that character when it’s not who I am.”
She adds, “I just say jokes but they think I’m serious, which I think is funny, and I think I kind of play up the image sometimes because – whatever – it’s just entertainment.”

To further prove her genius, Paris stepped out into the chilly London morning today without a bra or coat on which makes me wonder how she’s not building rockets for NASA. It’s practically a crime against science.
