Paris Hilton upset with Ricky Gervais over 'Extras' appearance snub
UPI News Service, 08/28/2006
Paris Hilton's newest feud is with Ricky Gervais over the British comic's decision to turn down "The Simple Life" star's offer for her to appear on his series, "Extras."
The New York Post reported Hilton, who is no stranger to Hollywood feuds, had nothing positive to say about the "Extras" creator this week after Gervais said no thanks to her request to appear on the HBO comedy's upcoming second season.
"I guess he's obviously scared of starring alongside an A-lister," the 25-year-old actress/singer said this weekend.
Since debuting last year on HBO, "Extras" featured appearances from actors such as Ben Stiller, Kate Winslet and Samuel L. Jackson, all of whom played themselves on the movie industry series.
The paper said Gervais, who was the creative force behind TV's "The Office," had no comment regarding the incident.
