Paris Hilton is supporting proposals by Los Angeles police to curb the hoardes of paparazzi in the city.
The socialite claims there is a fine line between business and pleasure and backs the city police's plans to create a personal safety zone between celebrities and photographers.
She says, "It is okay for paparazzi to go to a press event or a red carpet but when it is every single day when you are going to the market or the tanning salon or to lunch with your family, it is a lot of pressure always having to be 'on'.
"Sometimes there will be 50 or 100. They are like rats. All my cars are completely scratched up from their battery packs and cameras. They jump on your car and dent the windows."
