Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Buzzfeed.com: “Paris Hilton Said She Was "In Tears Every Single Day" After Her Sex Tape Was Leaked In 2003”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Last month, she reflected on a "cruel" interview with David Letterman, in which she thinks he was "purposefully trying to humiliate" her. She also admitted she was "hurt" by Sarah Silverman's 2007 MTV Movie Awards jokes about her being sentenced to jail — sparking Sarah to make a lengthy public apology.

She noted that they were both just young girls going out, doing what anyone would their age would do, but "because we were in the public eye we were made to be these villains...It's such an amazing time right now that people are looking back at that and seeing it was all of these really misogynistic views," adding that not having to deal with it anymore is a "weight off [her] shoulders."

Some background: In 2003, a sex tape featuring Paris and then-boyfriend Rick Salomon was leaked online. A year later, he began distributing the video himself, now titled 1 Night in Paris. Salomon sued Paris and her family for defamation after she stated she "never, ever thought these things would become public,” implying it was taped without her consent. Paris then countersued Salomon for releasing the tape and won a settlement, part of which she donated to charity.

Speaking on the incident in 2011, Paris said, "I didn't want to be known as that. And now when people look at me they think that I'm something I'm not just because of one incident one night with someone who I was in love with." "People assume 'Oh, she's a slut' because of one thing that happened to me," she added at the time, "and it's hard because I'll have to live with that for the rest of my life and explain it to my children. And it's something that's changed my life forever and I'll never be able to erase it."
