There are several celebrities who are only famous for being famous. Some of them have no real talents or abilities while others achieve fame simply through association with an actual celebrity. Some of these “talentless” celebrities have actually managed to have pretty successful careers in Hollywood, even though they haven’t quite earned the opportunities in the traditional way. We’re guessing that their careers have flourished because people want to capitalize on their notoriety; however, this kind of demeans celebrities who have actually made it thanks to their talents and good work ethic. Here are 7 celebrities who are famous for being famous!
7. Paris Hilton
Paris Hilton was one of the first celebrities to become famous for being famous. How this happened involved a combination of factors. She had a reality TV show that was about to air and, around that same time, she had a sex tape that was leaked. She became a household name over night. Her picture was everywhere and everyone wanted to know anything and everything about her.
As time went on, we did learn more and more about the heiress, but none of it was particularly interesting. She was beautiful, wealthy and her only real hobbies were shopping, partying and jet setting. For someone who had managed to secure so much of our fascination, she lacked enough substance to maintain it. Over time, interest has faded. She’s now known as just one of those people who became famous for having no real talent at all.Everett Collection / Shutterstock.com
