Is Paris Hilton dating ‘Hangover’ director Todd Phillips?

Paris Hilton, who recently broke up with Cy Waits, was spotted out with Todd Phillips, director of “The Hangover” movies.

People magazine reports that Hilton, 30, and Phillips, 40, spent a recent evening at the Chateau Marmont, followed by a visit to a secluded table at the Roosevelt Hotel to watch a vaudeville show, along with Hilton’s sister Nicky. This date, assuming that’s what it was, comes less than two weeks after Hilton’s split with Waits became public knowledge; the hotel heiress dated the Las Vegas club owner for a little over a year.

Clearly the two weren’t trying too hard to keep a low profile; if you go to the Chateau Marmont together, it’s a guarantee that you’ll be spotted.

Is it possible that Phillips is just sizing her up for a cameo in the third “Hangover” movie, assuming that moves forward? Or is this the beginning of a beautiful relationship? And, in a related question, is this evidence that Hilton could become culturally relevant again now that she’s (allegedly) dating one of the more prominent comedy directors in Hollywood?
