Los Angeles: Socialite Paris Hilton has become less trusting as she has got older, after having previously let “bad people” into her life.

The 34-year-old heiress has been betrayed in the past by people who didn’t have “good intentions”, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Asked about her biggest regret, she told New You magazine: “Trusting certain people. I have now learned that you can’t trust everyone and that not everyone has good intentions. My biggest regret is letting certain people into my life who were bad people.”

Hilton shot to fame starring in reality show “The Simple Life” alongside Nicole Richie and she thinks the programme has given people the wrong idea about who she really is as she was just playing a “character” in the series.

“A lot of people don’t know the real me… The Paris that they were introduced to over a decade ago on ‘The Simple Life’ is not who I am. That was just a character I was playing.

“The real Paris is a down to earth, sweet, real girl — woman now — who is a business woman and feels very proud… I have a really big heart,” she added.
