Quotes by Paris Hilton from an interview
On November 4, 2008, Cal Fussman interviewed Paris Hilton:
There are definitely a lot of misconceptions about me out there. “Oh, she doesn’t work. She doesn’t do anything. She just gets money from her family.” That’s not true at all. I was up making phone calls at seven in the morning, and I’ll be working until 1:00 A.M.
I was the oldest granddaughter. Everyone was so excited that I was born, they would always take pictures of me. My grandma would call me Marilyn Monroe or Grace Kelly. Ever since I was little, it’s what I knew I wanted to do–be a blond icon.
I put pheromones in a lot of my fragrances, and that attracts people to you. My new fragrance is called Fairy Dust. I’m dressed kind of like Tinkerbell.
I don’t know why everyone wants to be famous. To make a living, I guess. Maybe they think it’s an easy job.
Once I’ve worn a dress, I can never wear it again. I give them to charities and they auction them off to help people with breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, and AIDS. Some that are really, really special, I keep in storage for my daughters. They’ll be vintage by then. I think my daughters will love them.
I don’t think it’s fair for a child to come into the world and have to be photographed. They didn’t really choose that life.
If my kids got bothered by paparazzi, I would just tell them to not pay too much attention and don’t do anything silly like give the middle finger. It will just make them look bad, and the photographers get more money for shots like that.
It’s good to just smile and go on with your day.
Trust is just a feeling that you have.
The best thing I’ve ever bought with money is my house. I call it my Paris Palace. It’s beautiful. Every room has beautiful crystal chandeliers and amazing moldings from Italy. When people come over they say, “Hey, this looks just like you.”
Having a nightclub in your house really helps for having a party, because then you don’t need to go out.
A great party starts with a great list of people.
Will Ferrell movies make me laugh. My sister makes me laugh. Nicole Richie is hilarious.
I always send thank-you notes. If somebody has done something really special for me, I’ll make them a collage of pictures or a little piece of art.
I’m not jealous. I don’t understand why people are jealous. You have so much better karma in life when you wish other people the best.
Because of my last name and the way I look, some people think I’m a spoiled brat. But I’m not like that at all. I’m one of the most down-to-earth people I know out of anyone in Hollywood.
Things may seem to naturally come my way. But I work hard for them, too. I have good karma.
If there was one person I could meet, it would be Marilyn Monroe. I have her pictures all over my house. I just think that she’s really beautiful. And the way she spoke just seems so sweet. Everyone loved her, and they still do. I think she’s going to be one of those people who’s talked about forever and ever.
I don’t know if people will be talking about me that way when I’m seventy-five.
You may not be able to be hot when you’re seventy-five in a conventional sense. Like, young people won’t think you’re hot. But your husband will, and so will people your own age.
