Paris Hilton talks about jail with Larry King

This week we facially code Paris Hilton's interview on Larry King Live from June 27th, 2007. This took place shortly after she was released from jail. Here is a snippet of that interview:

The first is a photo from when she was taken back to jail to finish serving her time. As you can see, she was truly upset and showing sadness.

The 2nd photo is her smiling after she said:

"I've been through a lot. It's a pretty traumatic experience and something I really have grown from."

As you can see, she is smiling, not traumatic on a lingering basis or detached.

Later on in the interview, Larry King says that prison and jail are there to teach a lesson and asks, "Did it work for you?" Her verbal response was fairly straightforward saying that it gave her time to reflect on who she was and on what is important to her.

Her facial reactions were much different. First, upper lip slightly curled in disgust followed by contempt. Whether it was directed at Larry King and his question, the media circus in general, or reflected her giving a pat, insincere answer we can only guess.

I saw this interview and didn't feel like she was being very genuine. I don't think her facial expressions changed that much or showed anything remorseful or like she has just been through a tough time. But this is Paris Hilton - I don't think a few days in prison is going to make her change. It's like when you're hungover and say you're never going to drink again.
