Paris Hilton Takes the Stand

Did you know Paris Hilton starred in a movie in 2006 called Pledge This? Neither did we—and that’s all her fault, according to prosecutors. The heiress, actress, and model testified in court today that she did her best to promote the box-office bomb during its crucial DVD and foreign market release stage. "If I have my name attached to something, I want it to be as big as it can be," Hilton said. "It could have been a lot better if it was done more professionally. I wanted it to do as well as possible." The lawsuit seeks $8.3 million in damages and claims Hilton violated her contract by ignoring requests for promotional appearances. The heiress claimed ignorance, saying she was unaware of any contractual obligation to plug Pledge This! after its release, and insisted she promoted the film for two years prior to its premiere in October of 2006.
