You can now watch the acclaimed Paris Hilton documentary for FREE

This is Paris is a YouTube Original documentary on the heiress and socialite Paris Hilton.

The documentary gives an inside look into Hilton’s day-to-day life, offering an unfiltered and honest perspective on the ur-reality star. Emmy-winning director Alexandra Dean and her team followed Hilton around the world for a year, capturing moments, conducting revealing interviews, and telling never-before-heard stories about Hilton’s life. It includes interviews with Hilton’s mother, Kathy Hilton, and her normally (more) private sister, Nicky Hilton Rothschild. Notably, the This Is Paris YouTube description states that “Paris speaks publicly for the first time about heartbreaking trauma and pivotal moments in her early life that forged who she is today.”

This is Paris was originally set to premiere at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival but the festival was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Now, you can stream for free with ads or, if viewers sign up for YouTube premium, they can watch the feature's extended cut.
  Hilton’s breakout role came when she was just 19 years old when she was cast alongside her friend Nicole Richie in the reality show, The Simple Life. On the show, the two young women appeared as fish-out-of-water rich girls, unable to handle an average life. After the show ended in 2007, Hilton went on to star in documentary film Paris, Not France and the MTV reality series Paris Hilton’s My New BFF, neither of which garnered much acclaim.

In all of these reality shows, Hilton put on the “dumb blonde” persona that she is now rejecting. Hilton said:

I was in on the joke. People thought that’s who I really was. I’ve been judged on a character that I created at the beginning of my career and now I feel like it’s really time that people see who the real Paris is.
