Yes, Those Paris Hilton Pillows In ‘The Bling Ring’ Trailer Do Exist
When Sofia Coppola was granted permission to film parts of The Bling Ring in Paris Hilton‘s real-life home, she really did film everything in that house — down to the heiress’ pillows.
For Elle magazine‘s latest issue, Hilton opened the doors to her multi-million dollar mega-mansion again to Coppola, where the accompanying spread shot by the famous director confirmed that those throw cushions embellished with the socialite’s face on them previously featured in the trailer are indeed real.
“I saw the pillows adorned with [Paris'] face and I took my picture with them. She’s such a pop icon and has a sense of humor about herself. I think she was the first to really make herself into a brand. She’s so dedicated to her style,” Coppola gushed.
“If nothing else, when people see it, they will want a Paris pillow. We might have to make those.”
Aside from her lavish abode, Hilton herself — a victim of the actual Bling Ring — makes an appearance in the film. According to Hilton, whose jewelry, clothes and even underwear were stolen by Alexis Neiers and her gang of teen burglars, she hopes viewers will understand that fame isn’t everything.
She told the publication, “There’s much more to life than all of these possessions and everything. And if you want those things, you’re going to have to work yourself, just like I did.”
The Bling Ring opens June 14.
