Paris Hilton has, in an interview with Barbara Walters, said she wants to stop acting dumb and be a better person when she gets out of jail.
When Paris Hilton wants to share her experience while in jail, Barbara Walters willingly lends an ear to listen to. The most famous inmate has on Sunday June 10th called the television journalist to give a tell-all interview from the medical wing of a Los Angeles jail, where she is being held for violating probation in a drunken-driving case.
"I'm not the same person I was," Walters quoted Paris as saying on her ABC television program "The View" on Monday June 11th. "I used to act dumb. It was an act. I am 26 years old, and that act is no longer cute. It is not who I am, nor do I want to be that person for the young girls who looked up to me."
Further the heiress said, "I know now that I can make a difference, that I have the power to do that. I have been thinking that I want to do different things when I am out of here. I have become much more spiritual. God has given me this new chance."
"I feel that the purpose of my life is to be where I am," Paris went on saying, adding that "My spirit or soul did not like the way I was being seen and that is why I was sent to jail. God has released me."
On her forthcoming plan when she's released from prison, Paris revealed she would like pursuing work to raise awareness about breast cancer or multiple sclerosis and is planning to persuade toy companies to manufacture a Paris Hilton playhouse which could be donated to sick children.
That was the first interview Paris did since she was sent back to prison last Friday June 8th for probation violation in a drink-driving case. She was on Thursday June 7th placed on house arrest due to psychological problems after spending just three days in jail.
