Paris Hilton is a "huge tomboy".

The 30-year-old socialite - whose business empire includes ownership of a Moto GP team - is a big fan of many different sports and is an "amazing" ice Hockey player.

She said: "I've actually always been a huge tomboy. I love watching American football games and I love watching Moto GP, which is why I bought my own team.

"I actually enjoy soccer. I was at the World Cup in South Africa.

"I'm an amazing ice hockey player. As a kid I played softball, I was in the basketball and volleyball teams and I was a cheerleader."

As well as her love of sports, Paris is also fascinated by cars, but after recently acquiring a rare vehicle, she now plans to auction off one of her others.

She told the new issue of FHM magazine: "I just got a new Ferrari Spider, which I love. I also have a Lexus LFA. They're only making 100. I have the second one in the world. The owner of Lexus [has the first].

"Do you know something? I'm going o auction off one of my Bentleys for charity."
