Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

The great-granddaughter of famed hotelier Conrad Hilton and co-heir to the Hilton fortune, socialite Paris Hilton stridently endeavored to make her own mark in the world - and for the most part, succeeded. Alongside her younger sister, Nicky, Paris Hilton became one of the first media-dubbed "celebutantes" - a term used to describe a growing trend of young, attractive party girl socialites-turned-models/actresses and quasi-celebs. Regardless of whether you loved her or hated her, one could not deny the impact Hilton had on media and pop culture. Rightly or wrongly, by making a lucrative career of doing essentially nothing, Hilton - and those who followed in her footsteps - truly helped re-define the word "celebrity" for the new millennium.

Notes

''My dad and mom always tell me to be humble and treat people like they want to be treated, even if they're being mean. If you're nice to them, they feel bad for having said something bad about you.''---Hilton EntertainmentWeekly December 5, 2003

"I don't want to be known as the granddaughter of the Hiltons. I want to be known as Paris."---Hilton AskMen.com

"Walmart, what's that, do they like, make walls there"---Hilton on "The Simple Life" December 2, 2003

"Since the show came out, I can't really have fun anymore because people (are) coming up every minute and are like, 'Oh, can I have a picture?'"---Paris Hilton People March 23, 2004

It's not about the fame, really," says Hilton. "Years from now, I would just want people to say, 'She was young. She was a crazy girl for a while or whatever, but then she married and had a great big family. She was good to people and did a lot for the world. And that she was a nice person."---Hilton quoted in Movieline's Hollywood Life June 2004

"I don't really read anything on the Internet except my AOL mail. I don't like people who sit on computers all day long and write about people they don't know anything about."---Hilton quoted to Cnn.com, May 5, 2005.
