33. Not knocking her individually at all. She's just famous and
convenient to use as an example, however, she never had to work as a waitress at Denny's waiting for that all important phone call that could be her big break. I have known many such heirs, not famous like her, as I worked on their trust funds in the past.

Many do chose to work to their credit but they really don't have to worry if they lose a job, or just decide to quit and knock around Europe for year. Paris will never have to worry about getting acting and modeling jobs once she starts aging like many other women do have to worry about keeping their jobs.
