Socialite Paris Hilton has been asked to play celebrated humanitarian Mother Teresa in a movie biopic.
Indian director T Rajeevnath has contacted the hotel heiress about taking the lead role in his new film, which will chronicle the late nun's life.
He tells MTV.co.uk: "My agents in California have contacted Paris Hilton.
"Although there are several actresses willing to play the role of Mother Teresa, the most widely respected and loved person, the history of the actress who is finally chosen for the role would have to be analysed thoroughly before she is chosen."
But I do have much laughter.
