Film veterans Shirley Maclaine, Shirley Temple and Catherine Deneuve have joined the list of stars criticising socialite Paris Hilton, because they believe the hotel heiress does not deserve her film roles.

MacLaine, 71; Deneuve, 61; and former child star Temple, 77, join country singer Gretchen Wilson, Jon Bon Jovi, Sharon Osbourne and designer VALENTINO GARAVANI, who have all admitted disliking The Simple Life reality TV star.

TERMS OF ENDEARMENT star MacLaine scathes, "She just shops and turns up to parties.

"So she wears pink and has blonde hair and suddenly calls herself not a starlet or an ingenue - no, according to Paris, she is a movie star.

"It irritates me. In my day, you had to really work. It took BETTE DAVIS seven years of hard slog to reach the point where her name was above the title on a movie."

Temple adds, "(Paris) is stealing the thunder from really talented actors who have learned their craft."

Meanwhile, French beauty Deneuve asks, "Who is she but a provocative young Barbie doll?"
