You wouldn't know it from movies like "Repo! The Genetic Opera" and "The Hottie & the Nottie," but Paris Hilton might actually possess some serious acting chops. That is, if she was actually in on that horrific "near plane crash" prank, as TMZ claims.
The website has obtained documents from the Egyptian production company behind "Ramez in Control" ("Ramez Wakel Elgaw"), which reveal not only was Hilton not their first choice for the stunt, but that they had sent their offer to the reps of other American celebrities, offering a big payday to participate. Sources told TMZ the production company was offering somewhere in the million-dollar range as a fee for a willing celebrity.
According to TMZ, the document details how the entire stunt would go down, mirroring exactly what happened during Hilton's experience.
The production company went as far to assure the reps of American celebs that they had the full blessing of Dubai officials, who would be monitoring the show and providing them with security.
Many regular viewers of the show were quick to claim Hilton was in on the prank from the beginning, despite how terrified she appeared in the video, claiming it was common knowledge that celebrities fake their reactions to these stunts.
However, when a TMZ cameraman caught up with her on Wednesday, she continued to act as though she had no prior knowledge of the stunt. "I think they went a little too far with the prank," she said when asked what she would say to the show's producers. "There are things that are funny and that was not funny."
And when asked if she had plans for legal action she replied, "We'll see what happens."
The Huffington Post has reached out to Hilton's reps for comment.
