Paris Hilton has allegedly been trying to get out of the premiere of her new movie National Lampoon’s Pledge This, because it’s so bad she’s embarrassed to be associated with it. An insider says:
“The premiere was supposed to have been on Oct. 11 in Chicago, but Paris called at the last minute and canceled, claiming she had to promote her album. The producers didn’t want to have the premiere without her because she’s the biggest star in the movie, which also features Simon Rex and Randy Spelling, so they rescheduled for Oct. 28.” But now Hilton has told the producers she won’t likely be attending then, either. “The movie is horrific,” said our source. “It is a limited release that will likely go straight to video. Paris doesn’t really want to be associated with it. Her movie career is not exactly booming, and she needs to not be seen as a flop. Also, the movie has a lot of topless women in it, and she is trying to distance herself from the whole porn thing.” A rep for Hilton said only, “She will appear at this premiere.”
It’s hard to imagine that the star power of Paris Hilton won’t be enough to make this movie a raging success. This is the same woman that brought us canned wine. She wields so much influence in Hollywood she makes Julia Roberts look like Kathy Griffin’s makeup artist. I mean anybody who can spend $35 for a bottle of water for their dog has to be a huge star. It’s science.
