If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, it must be a duck, right? Paris Hilton insists that she just "acts" like an airhead and she's in fact very smart.
She insists that half the time the press misinterprets her jokes, and the other half of the time she's just trying to be entertaining.
"I just do little jokes all the time and people think I'm serious," Paris told GMTV. "I know exactly who Gordon Ramsay is, I know exactly who Gordon Brown is.
"I just say jokes but they think I'm serious which I think is funny and I think I kind of play up the image sometimes because - whatever - it's just entertainment."
Paris also insists that she was just acting while on The Simple Life. "For five seasons I was stuck doing this character," she said. "It was kind of hard always having to play that character when it's not who I am."
So does she ever stop acting? The airhead role is getting old, don't you guys think? If she's as smart as she insists, it would be nice to see that side of her now and then.
