Photo: AKUSA / Splash News Sofia Coppola landed one unlikely cameo for her fact-based crime caper The Bling Ring , which premiered yesterday at Cannes : Paris Hilton, whose mansion was repeatedly burglarized by the titular teenage thieves nearly five years ago. The heiress appears for a quick moment in a nightclub scene, but more significantly, she lent Coppola her actual house to film in for two weeks so that the director could re-create the burglaries onscreen. “I was really emotional watching it,” Hilton confessed to me last night at the movie’s hot-ticket Nikki Beach after-party. “During some parts of it, I literally had tears in my eyes and I wanted to cry. I knew what happened with the burglaries, but I had never actually seen it — so watching it happen, I was like, ‘Oh my God, this really happened to me. These kids were really in my house and did this to me.’ It’s so violating. It just made me really angry and upset, and when I see these kids, I want to, like, slap … [Read more...] about Cannes: Paris Hilton Cried While Watching

’The Bling Ring.’ Photo: Merrick Morton/A24 Sofia Coppola debuted her new film The Bling Ring at Cannes today, and contrary to early reports , it no longer begins with a quote from Nicole Richie’s Twitter, though it does close to the tune of Frank Ocean’s “Super Rich Kids,” a fittingly on-the-nose croon about privileged youth getting into trouble. The kids of The Bling Ring aren’t super rich, but they’re adjacent to it, growing up in the San Fernando Valley while mimicking the lifestyle of the Hollywood stars who live just over the mountain. Everything changes, though, when these teens find out just how simple it is to ransack a celebrity’s mansion: All you need to break into Paris Hilton’s unlocked home, for example, is a Google search and some moxie. If some of their victims are famous for doing nothing, what’s wrong with the Bling Ringers tapping into that intoxicating vein with the same ease? Coppola’s fact-based tale starts with Marc (played by newcomer Israel … [Read more...] about Cannes: Hogwarts Would Have Expelled
BEVERLY HILLS, CA - FEBRUARY 23: Nicole Richie attends “The Buzz On The Red Carpet” presented by QVC at Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills on February 23, 2012 in Beverly Hills, California. Photo: Joe Kohen/Getty Images As Sofia Coppola continues to cast her new movie The Bling Ring , based on the true crime story about a group of fame-hungry teens who broke into the mansions of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Megan Fox, the folks over at the Playlist got their hands on Coppola’s slim script. Their most important discovery: The movie opens with a “knowing quote” from Nicole Richie’s Twitter. Well, she does have a good Twitter! (Recent sample tweet : “Just got to Miami and Will Smith DID NOT pick me up in his ride with the top down. This is bullshit.”) Also crucial? Leslie Mann is in the movie as the former Playboy model mom to Emma Watson, and her first line is, “Girls, time for your Adderall!” Yes, well, give us this movie now, please.
