Paris Hilton

Who Wants to be

... a Slumdog Hundredaire?!!?!

9/26/2011 4:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton made a begger's life in Mumbai a few hours ago -- stopping her SUV to hand a $100 bill to a poor woman who was carrying a baby ... and then dropping more than $2,000 in cash on other poor people in the area.

According to local Indian reports, the woman immediately began asking photogs if anyone could break it into smaller bills -- we're guessing it's not very safe to walk around the slums with that much cash.

And get this -- sources close to Paris tell TMZ ... after the $100 incident, Paris was so emotional about the poverty situation in India, she decided to give away all of the cash she was carrying on her at the time to other poor people in the area ... more than $2,000 in total.

Paris -- who's in India to launch some new Paris Hilton stores -- later tweeted about the incident .... saying, "India is beautiful, but some parts are very poverty stricken. Broke my heart to see babies sleeping on the streets."

is beautiful, but some parts are very poverty stricken. Broke my heart to see babies sleeping on the streets :(

why did she give them dollars? does she not realize that they use rupees in india? and i doubt they have a currency exchange place in the slum.

its good that she was giving charity to the poor but she should have given them rupees.

One time Paris gave a lady a full tank of gas when she was at the gas station. Yes it too was on camera. But, it was real money and the lady wasn't a part of the show until that moment. And the lady really needed that money at that time.
Give paris a break. Because she has plenty of dough doesn't mean she should be secretly, out of camera, handing it out to whomever you believe she should give it to. Its her money and she DOES give to American charities. I am sure those people will find a way to exchange US to Rupees. No Problem!
Cut her a break! Real money to real people is NEVER a bad thing.

its not the first time shes done this. she used to do this in the usa all the time. shes a very sweet person and money isnt all she thinks about. shes trying to make a difference and change her image and i think shes doing a good job of it. kims being a hoe and getting millions of $ to fix her body and make herself look "hot" when paris on the hand is all natural and believes you dont need plastic surgery or botox to make yourself look "hot" thats what i like about her. Kim is sellfish and spends all her money on herself over some fake scripted tv show while paris is traveling the world promoting her brand and products. shes really grown up over the years and i honestly think she has way more talent and brains than kim. i dont know about you guys but im on #TEAMPARIS

Yeah Right    

Umm, yeah! Nice try Paris. Ohhh poor baby do you missie wissie your little money making reality show went caput?! So now you need some good press to try and make people believe that you care about others, even poor people? What happened to all that "charity" work you were going to do when released out of jail? Oh yeah, I forgot you are a slut. Oh yes, again I forget I dont really KNOW you right?! All these people say mean and hurtful things because they dont KNOW you and you're really a different person behind closed doors. Well let me tell you something honey, I've seen you behind closed doors (several leaked tapes) and it all amounts to the same thing, VANITY all over the place, selfishness, money hungry, more vanity and a little bit more whoring to get some money or valuables on your side - no matter how many boyfriends you have to go through. Yes, I believe that you "work" for your money; I just don't know how many guys you work over in order to get your money. You need help from a parent that care more than just promoting you and letting you get whatever you want for the sake of getting your name out there. I guess now you wish you weren't such a bitch to Kim K and maybe you shouldn't stab your friends in the back; but that is really all you care about is you. Hurts doesn't it? No one cares about you anymore; no more endorsements, no more TV deals, less and less mag covers. By the way, you were voted the #1 least trustworthy celebrity which is the reason why the checks are coming as fast as they used to, because the public aren't you to buy water from someone on a hot day that they don't trust.
