Paris Whitney Hilton (born February 17, 1981) is an American celebutante and businesswoman.
She is best-known through her work in the television series The Simple Life. She has also appeared in several minor film roles, most notably in the horror film House of Wax in 2005. In 2004 she published a tongue-in-cheek autobiography. In 2006, she released her self-titled debut album Paris. Among her many careers, she lists singer, model, actress, author, and television personality. As a result of several legal incidents, Hilton served a widely publicized sentence in a L.A.County Jail facility in 2007.
The leak of a four-year-old homemade sex video, on the internet, later released despite attempted legal action on the DVD 1 Night in Paris, of Hilton with her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon a week prior to the premiere of her Fox reality series The Simple Life attracted worldwide attention in late 2003.
