(Newser) – Of all the hard-hitting documentaries being screened at Cannes, the juiciest is probably Paris, Not France. The film, which delves into Paris Hilton’s world, reveals the socialite’s inner thoughts, the Sun reports. For example, “That’s not what I wanted when I was a little girl,” Hilton says of her infamous sex tape. “I always looked up to people like Princess Diana and now I can never be like that.”

“People see me as a Barbie with a perfect life, a fantasy... maybe that’s what they like,” she ponders at another point. “There’s a mystery about me because how I am in public is completely different to how I am in private.”
