Paris Hilton - Paris Hilton still horrified by robberies

Paris Hilton is still horrified by the robberies that took place at her home.

The 32-year-old socialite has a cameo role in upcoming drama film 'The Bling Ring' - based on true events of when a group of fame-obsessed teenagers tracked the whereabouts of celebrities and robbed their homes, including her own.

Even though she accepted a part in Sofia Coppola's movie, the blonde beauty admits she's still coming to terms with the devastating events - which took place between 2008 and 2009 - and can't bring herself to watch the finished film.

She said: ''It's [the robbery] still hard for me to deal with. I haven't seen the film yet, but I'll see it at the premiere. I'm going to have to close my eyes for fear of seeing what they really did. It still horrifies me.''

Paris was the gang's first target and they made off with millions of dollars of items and treasured possessions.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she said: ''They came to my house five times, stole millions of dollars of my things: Birkin bags, family heirlooms, jewellery that was in my family for years, and then they sold it on Venice Beach like a yard sale.

''I didn't get a cent back in insurance money, and I will never be able to replace those things.''

Other celebrities who were burgled include Lindsay Lohan, Megan Fox, Audrina Patridge and Orlando Bloom.

The film - which stars Emma Watson, Taissa Farmiga, and Leslie Mann - was shot at Paris' property in Calabasas, California and Sofia personally asked Paris if she could use her home as a shoot location for authenticity.

Paris revealed: ''Sofia came to one of my birthday parties and loved my house, and said it would be so much better to shoot here than try to re-create it in a set. I would never have done it for anyone else - I have a lot of respect for Sofia, an independent woman, an artist and a director.''

'Bling Ring' is to be screened at the Cannes Film Festival and is set for official release on June 14.
