Paris Hilton is allegedly trying to get out of doing any promotion for her new film, Pledge This. The movie evidently stinks and she's trying to keep herself as far away from it as possible. I don't know how she got cast in this film anyway. Paris Hilton in college? I just have a hard time wrapping my head around that one. Page Six reports:

"The premiere was supposed to have been on Oct. 11 in Chicago, but Paris called at the last minute and canceled, claiming she had to promote her album. The producers didn't want to have the premiere without her because she's the biggest star in the movie, which also features Simon Rex and Randy Spelling, so they rescheduled for Oct. 28."

But now Hilton has told the producers she won't likely be attending then, either.

"The movie is horrific," said our source. "It is a limited release that will likely go straight to video. Paris doesn't really want to be associated with it. Her movie career is not exactly booming, and she needs to not be seen as a flop. Also, the movie has a lot of topless women in it, and she is trying to distance herself from the whole porn thing."

A rep for Hilton said only, "She will appear at this premiere."

I guess we'll know the answer to that soon. It's hard to feel bad for the girl but it's such a joke that her movie is going straight to video. Reminds us of that other straight to home video movie that made her a household name.
