Socialite Paris Hilton has reunited with director Sofia Coppola for a special magazine photoshoot showcasing the Beverly Hills mansion targeted by the real-life thieves portrayed in their new film The Bling Ring.

The reality Tv star allowed the filmmaker to shoot parts of the heist movie in the actual home broken into by the gang of youths, played onscreen by actors including Emma Watson, Katie Chang and Claire Julien, who stole clothing, jewellery and other belongings from the mansion.

Hilton, who even made a cameo in the project, has now thrown open the doors of her pad for the upcoming July (13) issue of Elle magazine, showing off her home and a slew of possessions, including a vintage gold couch decorated with pillows bearing the blonde beauty's own face, and her pet mansion for her beloved pooches.

During the accompanying interview, the hotel heiress admits she has no idea how she would react if she ever came face-to-face with those convicted for breaking into her home: "I don't know what I'd do if I saw them. I'm not a confrontational person. But I would literally be like, 'You guys need serious help. And I want my stuff back.'"

Hilton was just one of the celebrities to fall victim to the thieves - Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson and Lindsay Lohan were also among those targeted in 2008 and 2009.
