Washington, Feb 07 : American celebrity and heiress Paris Hilton expressed sympathy for her friend Britney Spears while at the premiere of her new movie 'The Hottie and the Nottie'.
Paris felt bad that Spears, who is currently in hospital, was not able to attend the event.
"I feel bad for Britney, she's a lovely girl," the New York Post reported Paris as having told PageSix.com.
"I wish she was here tonight. I hope she gets well soon!" she added.
Adrian Grenier, who was Paris' man for the night, also added his sympathy for Britney. "Hollywood is a tough town. Britney's has it tough -- I feel sad for her," he said.
However the pair did not let Brit's no-show damper their spirits for long and they were soon seen grooving on the dance floor.
