Now I’ve heard ev­ery­thing

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Here’s a thing. Paris Hil­ton is be­ing sued for not be­ing suf­fi­ciently vis­i­ble in the me­dia. What next? Rob Sch­nei­der ac­cused of be­ing too funny? Lars von Trier ac­cused of be­ing too hum­ble? The pro­duc­ers of Na­tional Lam­poon’s Pledge This!, a grate­fully for­got­ten com­edy from 2006, have sug­gested that the film’s fail­ure was, in part, due to Ms Hil­ton’s re­luc­tance to do pub­lic­ity for the movie.

Bryan West, lawyer for World­wide En­ter­tain­ment Group, which has since gone bust, told the court: “At no time would she take 10 min­utes to do a phone in­ter­view.” It’s like su­ing Mickey Rourke for not be­ing weird enough. And so on.
