Paris Hilton is an American model, socialite, heiress and entrepreneur. She began modelling at a tender age while in elementary school.
With her natural beauty and figure, she landed a contract with T. Management, a renowned modelling agency owned by the 45th President of the United State, Donald Trump.
While her incredible talent as a model earned a lot of lucrative deals from top brands, her tv/movie roles, family and the controversies surrounding her made her super-popular.
Paris Hilton’s Early Life
Records have it that the model was born on the 17th day of February 1981. Her full name is Paris Whitney Hilton.
As a model, she has worked with top designers like Christian Dior, Guess, Marciano, and others. Most of Hilton’s childhood friends are now top stars including Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie, Lionel Richie’s adopted daughter.
Her film/tv career started in 2001 when she was given a cameo role to play as herself in “Zoolander”, with Ben Stiller as the lead actor and director. However, Paris became known to many when she appeared on the reality TV show, “The Simple Life” in 2003. In the same year, she got a bigger acting role in “The Cat in the Hat” movie which was moderately successful for her. Still, in 2003, Paris featured in a thriller which was directed by James Cox – “Wonderland”.
Things were ambivalent for Paris in 2003 because she got famous in every dimension. The tv and film roles were overshadowed by a sex tape released by her ex-boyfriend. The sex tape was titled “One Night in Paris”.
In the latter years, Paris got some significant roles in tv shows which contributed to her fame. She featured in “The O.C”, “Veronica Mars”, and “Las Vegas”. The sex tape wasn’t much of a blow to her popularity and movie roles since Paris was able to land more lucrative deals with top films. She played a supporting role in “House of Wax” and “Nine Lives”.
She also appeared in several reality shows like “Paris Hilton’s; My New BFF”. The competitive reality television show had some Spin-offs that were somewhat successful. Paris, later on, had another reality tv series, called “The World According to Paris”. These reality TV shows made her gain more popularity.
Paris is 8 inches taller than 5 feet. She weighs about 55kg and other details of her body measurements are 34, 25, and 35 inches respectively for her breasts, waist and hips.
Family, and Inheritance
Inasmuch as most of the top celebrities are known to start from scratch, Paris is not in that bracket at all. She got most of her wealth from her deceased grandfather who died of old age.
Other than the money she inherited from her father, Hilton also took control of her grandfather’s foundation. Conrad Hilton, the grandfather, founded the Hilton Hotel chain and Paris took control of them.
Hilton Hotel is a popular name in many countries around the world. As a matter of fact, the hotels are in more than 540 locations across the globe. A bigger percentage of Paris’ family money is gained from the hotel chains.
Paris Hilton’s Net Worth, Appearance Fee, and Cars
Hilton gets most of her wealth from the Hilton Hotel chains. Nonetheless, she also makes money from other areas like endorsements and hosting parties. She makes between $25,000 and $100,000, as a hosting fee just to appear in a club or a party.
Paris Hilton is a lover of exotic cars. She owns some cool cars like a Pink Bentley, a Pink Ferrari among others. She also owns a shoe and perfume line.
While it is believed that Paris Hilton has a net worth of $300 million, it was reported in January 2018 that the value of her wealth increased by $2 million after her boyfriend, Chris Zylka engaged her with a 20-carat diamond ring.
