Paris Hilton Pictures - Famous Celebutante
Why is Paris Hilton famous?
Paris Hilton is a Hollywood socialite and the granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, founder of the famous line of Hilton hotels. Her aunt was that girl from the Escape to Witch Mountain movies and Meatballs 2, for what it's worth.
Paris Hilton really became famous because of a tape that was released showing her with her former boyfriend, who was/is some no-name director. She may have been embarrassed about the tape, but without it nobody would know who Paris Hilton is today. She has done plenty of acting since then, mostly in really crappy movies that just need a celebrity face to help sell tickets. She even released a music album, which was just plain scary but had some decent beatmakers behind her so it wasn't as bad as it could have been.
Paris Hilton makes a lot of money just going to parties, because she actually gets paid by some clubs just to show up so the paparazzi can report back to their magazines that Paris Hilton was hanging out at that club. She also had a line of perfume and mens cologne, although I don't know of any men that would want to wear something with Paris Hilton's name attached to it.
Despite all the mean stuff I've said about her, Paris Hilton can be quite attractive when she dolls herself up for the cameras. I've included some pictures as examples.
