Paris Hilton, Repo: The Genetic Opera (poster)

Lionsgate

Paris Hilton hit Comic-Con.

Yes, complete with a full entourage and scrum of backward-walking photographers.

So why is the Hollywood socialite at a comic convention? Read on...

She came to support her latest film, Repo: The Genetic Opera, a bizarro hybrid of Blade Runner and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

What attracted her to playing the daughter of an organ-removal specialist?

Director Darren Lynn Bousman was the lure. "I'm a huge fan of the Saw movies, so I immediately wanted to sign on," Paris told the crowd. "Most people give me the role of the stereotype of what they think I am."

Bousman's initial response? "I was like, whatever, no way." But when he auditioned her, he claims, "she walks in the room and starts using words that I don't know!"

New words are great, but you can probably guess what she thought of the whole Comic-Con experience: "This is hot!"
