Hilton had asked to appear in an episode of "Extras" next season - and Gervais said no thanks.
Hilton has decided that he's too insecure to work with someone of her, um, stature.
"I guess he's obviously scared of starring alongside an A-lister," Hitlon told the San Francisco Chronicle over the weekend.
A number of Hollywood stars portrayed themselves in the first season - including Ben Stiller, Samuel L. Jackson and a cursing Kate Winslet.
No reply yet from Gervais.
