Paris Hilton to be Mother Teresa?
Paris Hilton performing in his new movie (no it?s not porn). Apparently Award-winning director T Rajeevnath thinks Paris would be perfect for the role of Mother Teresa. The reason for this decision is because he was impressed that Paris refused to pose nude for Playboy magazine. Although his casting agents in California have contacted her, he admits that she is up against some competition. “There are several actresses willing to play the role of Mother Teresa, the most widely respected and loved person, the history of the actress who is finally chosen for the role would have to be analysed thoroughly before she is chosen.” Hmmm, Paris is a lot of things but we?re not sure ?widely respected? is one of them. The English-language film will be mostly shot in West Bengal and overseas.

Mel bought the 5,411-acre Mago Island in Fiji in late 2004 for $15 million, but after Fiji?s only bowling alley closed down, he decided to ship it across to his island. No doubt his seven children are thrilled, they get a personal lane each with one to spare!
