Paris Hilton's HOTTIE AND THE NOTTIE co-star Christine Lakin has likened the socialite to screen icon Marilyn Monroe. Lakin stars alongside Hilton in the new movie and has praised the Simple Life star for her professionalism and grounded attitude. The 29-year-old also insists the hotel heiress radiates the same star quality as legendary actress Monroe. She tells MTV.com, "I think she is (the modern day Monroe). Paris is very iconic, obviously. Everybody knows her name, everybody knows her face, everyone knows her brand. Like Marilyn in The Seven Year Itch... "She had such a child-like quality, and was so funny and charming in her own way. I see a lot of that in Paris."
