Convicted scammer Anna Sorokin said Elon Musk is one of her dream dinner guests because 'his views are very fluid and constantly changing'
- Fake German heiress Anna Sorokin said one of her dream dinner guests is Elon Musk.
- Sorokin told Variety in a new interview that she likes that Musk's views are "constantly changing."
Fake German heiress and con artist Anna Sorokin named Elon Musk as one of her dream dinner guests.
In an interview with Variety's Anna Tingley published Friday, Sorokin, also known as the fake German heiress Anna Delvey, spoke about her life after prison and her thoughts on criminal justice reform.
Insider's Cheryl Teh reports that Sorokin was sentenced to four to 12 years in prison in 2019 on charges related to a scheme to defraud banks and financial institutions into giving her money. Six weeks after her release in 2021, she was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for overstaying her visa. She was granted a $10,000 bond and released from ICE custody in October.
Sorokin is required to wear an ankle monitor and stay off of social media while on house arrest in a New York City apartment, according to Variety.
She told the outlet she plans to host a series of dinner parties, sharing that she wants to sit down with big names like Musk, Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, and author Bret Easton Ellis.
The former con artist said she likes Musk because of his shifting views on the world.
"I think what I like about [Elon] is his views are very fluid and constantly changing. So, he doesn't really have any issues admitting that he's wrong or changing his opinions without being uptight, as long as it's on his terms," she said. "I feel like not a lot of people do that."
Musk made headlines in recent weeks for his tumultuous takeover of Twitter, most notably highlighted by mass resignations and a confusing verification system.
Sorokin shared with Variety that she wants her dinner parties to support criminal justice organizations like the ACLU and The Marshall Project. She said she recognizes she has a platform and wants to use it for good causes.
"Nobody ever cares about my thoughts on criminal justice, like how I would want to reform it or make a difference. I feel like it'd be a shame if I were to waste my voice and the attention I'm getting on just a photo shoot," she said. "I'm in this unique position where I actually have a platform, and I have the credibility of somebody who's actually been through the system as opposed to just being a random famous person who needs a pet cause."
Despite her reputation, Sorokin told the outlet that she doesn't experience anxiety and rejected the notion that she's suffering.
"Everyone's saying I'm slumming, but I'm still living better than all of you," she said.
