Paris Hilton criticises parents in Hollywood

Despite growing up in the limelight to a wealthy family, Paris Hilton has claimed she was not brought up "spoilt". In a new interview, the 36-year-old heiress took the opportunity to criticise parents in Hollywood for "spoiling" their children out of "guilt". Talking about her own upbringing, the reality star told ES Magazine: "We always had that work ethic, instilled in my father by his father, and passed on for generations in my family."

Paris, who is reported to have a net worth of £80million, went on to suggest that there are several parents in Hollywood who push their children into the limelight from an early age and take advantage of that. She added: "You know, like actresses’ moms, who kind of live off their kid, who’s been working since they were like a month old. And that’s a big percentage of Hollywood. I saw a lot of kids growing up in families who weren’t there for them, and just spoiled them because they felt guilty."

During an interview with BANG! Showbiz, she said: "I feel like I've done pretty much everything I've wanted to do. I've done music, designing, TV, everything. The one thing I didn't get involved in until a couple of years ago is real estate, and now I'm following in my family's footsteps, opening my own properties – I love that. But next is [definitely] having a family."
