If there is one celebrity in the United States today that companies should not use in its product campaign, that person would definitely be American socialite Paris Hilton.This developed after a recent survey has shown that Hilton is considered as the most unpopular star in Hollywood today. According to the recent survey made by Reuters, sixty person of 2,012 Americans asked in the survey select Hilton as the least trusted celebrity in Tinseltown today.
Taking the second spot in the survey with 52 percent rating is Charlie Sheen, who got the people’s ire after he got fired on the widely popular television comedy program “Two and a Half Men” star. Placing third to five spots respectively were pop star Britney Spears, rapper Kanye West and Hollywood action hero and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.As the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton (founder of Hilton Hotels), Hilton is known for her controversial participation in a sex tape in 2003, and appearance on the television series The Simple Life alongside fellow socialite and childhood best friend Nicole Richie.
Hilton is also known for her 2004 tongue-in-cheek autobiography, several minor film roles (most notably her role in the horror film House of Wax in 2005), her 2006 music album Paris, and her work in modelling. In recent years Hilton is perhaps most known for starring in a number of her own produced reality shows such as Paris Hilton’s My New BFF which was filmed in Los Angeles and aired in 2008 and which also resulted in a second season. Showbiz experts said Hilton is an example of the modern phenomenon of the ‘celebutante’, the celebrity who rises to fame not because of their talent or work but because of their inherited wealth and controversial lifestyle.
