Celebs refuse to support Paris Hilton
Celebrities who fall on tough legal times can often rely on their fellow stars for support.
Jodie Foster spoke out on Mel Gibson's behalf after his anti-Semitic tirade last summer. The cast of The View gave Alec Baldwin a place to explain his custody battle and an angry voicemail message he left for his 11-year-old daughter. Robert Downey, Jun was welcomed with understanding and job offers after his multiple drug arrests.
But few Hollywood players have come out in support of Paris Hilton, who was sentenced to 45 days in jail for violating her probation in an alcohol- related reckless driving case. The 26-year-old surrendered to sheriff's deputies June 3 and was booked into a Lynwood jail. She was released to home confinement a few days later, then ordered back behind bars.
A crowd of Hilton fans gathered outside the courthouse on Saturday where she learned her latest fate. But the hot, young showbiz set that Hilton hangs with has remained mum on the heiress's plight.
