"I feel like the whole world thinks they know me," she says. "No one really knows who I am" said Hilton. Paris is the great-grandaughter of Conrad Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels. The model and Dj said she is so used to playing a character that's it's hard for her to act "normal".
The new documentary has a mix of recent footage and old home videos. The heiress admitted "Something happened in my childhood that I've never talked about with anyone."
"I just created this brand and this persona and this character, and I've been stuck with her ever since." Hilton said that she is finally ready to share her truth.
The documentary is directed by Emmy-winning director Alexandra Dean.
In July the star appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and revealed that in the documentary she talks about things she's never talked about before "really personal and traumatic experiences, so to talk about that publicly is obviously very hard." She admitted to creating a persona and hiding behind that character. Hilton is a shy person and said that being herself was in a way very therapeutic.
