It is not easy becoming a celebrity. We all have heard the stories, we all know this to be true. Some famous celebrities had to work hard for everything they had. They worked two jobs, waited tables, and auditioned for any role they could possibly get. If they were musicians they would have had to play clubs in front of just a handful of people- anything to try and get that big break.
Then there is the other type of celebrity, the kind that never had to worry about paying their bills or working hard, because they came from a lot of money. And by the way, when I say a lot of money, I mean a lot of money. Like millions of dollars, or in some cases, even billions.
What follows is a list of celebrities that come from incredibly wealthy families. Are we trying to say that these people would not be famous if they were not rich? Well, some of them, yes. There is no doubt that no one would know who Paris Hilton is if she wasn't from a family of incredibly rich people. But is that the case with all of these people? Of course not. Some of them did it on their own, they just had it a lot easier than the rest of us.
How easy did they have it? Well, read on to find out. Here are 14 celebrities who are heirs to huge fortunes.
14 Rooney Mara - Parents Own The Steelers
13 Armie Hammer - Arm And Hammer Products
12 Psy - Part Owns Semiconductor Business
11 Devin Aoki - Father Owns Benihana
10 Nicole Richie - Lionel Has A LOT of Money
9 Tori Spelling - The Spelling Fortune
8 Liesel Pritzker Simmons - Child Star's Parents Own Hyatt
7 Balthazar Getty - His Granddaddy Was In The Oil Industry
6 Ed Norton - The Rouse Company Fortune
5 Chevy Chase - Crane Plumbing And Folgers Coffee
4 Anderson Cooper - The Vanderbilt Connection
3 Julia Louis Dreyfus - The Dreyfus Group
2 Brooke Shields - Her Great Grandfather Was An Italian Prince
1 Paris Hilton - The Hilton Brand
Who else would be a lock for number 1 on this list other than Paris Hilton? She is probably the most famous person ever for just being rich. Sure she is cute, well... sort of, but for the most part she is just famous for being a spoiled brat, and that look does not age well. She is an heir to the Hilton hotel chain, of course. Her grandfather is worth well over $2 billion; her dad is worth around $3oo million, and Paris? Who knows, really, but we do know she can probably get away with doing what she does best, which is nothing, for a little while longer.
