To Paris with Love
Indian director wants Paris Hilton as Mother Teresa
Thiruvananthapuram, India -- An Indian movie director said yesterday he hopes to persuade Paris Hilton to play the role of Nobel laureate and prospective Catholic Saint, Mother Teresa, in an upcoming film.
"Her features resemble Mother Teresa," director T. Rajeevnath told AFP from the southwestern coastal state of Kerala. The filmmaker said Hilton is on his short list after a computer-generated image showed a close facial match between the hotel heiress and the Albanian-born nun.
Mother Teresa, who died in 1997, worked among the poor in the teeming slums of Calcutta, with the Missionaries of Charity. She was beatified by Pope John Paul in 2003.
"A meeting with Paris Hilton is scheduled for the end of April," Rajeevnath said.
Hilton's previous movie experience includes appearing in a home-made sex video made by a former boyfriend that appeared on the Internet, and parts in several B-movies. The blond socialite also starred in the U.S. reality-television show The Simple Life. AFP
That has got to be one of the most bizarre uses of "previous movie experience" ever...
