Paris Hilton left in tears after landing Playboy cover despite snubbing deal

Paris Hilton admitted she burst into tears after seeing herself on the cover of Playboy magazine back in 2005 despite not giving her permission for her photos to be used.

In her latest biography titled Paris: The Memoir, the 42-year-old model explained she had initially turned down a seven-figure offer to pose for the infamous lad's mag.

The mum-of-one decided against the jaw-dropping offer to help correct her public image following her previous sex tape scandal.

The heiress was understandably shocked to see herself on the front cover of the magazine, which had instead used images from an old photoshoot.

She told readers: “No one was terribly surprised to see me on the cover of Playboy. Except me. I was surprised. And not in a good way.”

Paris recalled how the late editor-in-chief Hugh Heffner had previously offered her “more and more money” to take part in the glamorous photoshoot.

The reality star went on: “I wouldn’t have to be totally naked, just topless. And then saying, I didn’t think have to be topless, just sheer. And then saying I could wear whatever lingerie I wanted.

“Even when he offered seven figures, I turned it down, because I knew my mom would lose her mind, and because I had already been branded as a sl*t after the sex tape.

“I feel like a Playboy pictorial would just cement that in people’s minds,” she explained.

The blonde bombshell previously confessed that years before the cover came out, she initially found the idea of modelling for the magazine “awesome”.

Paris regularly lived with Playboy bunnies Jennifer Rovero and Nicole Lenz in the heart of Los Angeles and would regularly attend parties at the Playboy mansion.

However, her mother Kathy Hilton – who was also approached to model for the magazine in her youth – insisted she turn down the offer, telling her it would be “trashy”.

But just four years later, Paris found herself on the front cover just months after her very racy Super Bowl advert for the American fast food chain restaurant Carl’s Jr.
