These ten celebrities aren’t only lucky enough to be members and millionaires of Hollywood, they’re also all heirs to massive family fortunes. Some estates even trace back to as far as the nineteenth century. Find out which ten Hollywood heirs you never knew about can look forward to quite a hefty inheritance.
1. Paris Hilton
Well, this one you probably knew. The socialite turned reality star, turned actress, turned international DJ is one of the most well-known heiresses in Hollywood. Paris is an heir to the international Hilton hotels brand, an empire worth billions. However her grandfather, Barron Hilton, decided to donate 97% of his $2.3 billion fortune to charity in 2007. This means that Paris’ inheritance will be minimal, but the 34-year-old’s net worth is still a whopping $100 million.
2. Brooke Shields

Her grandfather was an elite U.S. tennis pro. Her father is an executive at Revlon and Estee Lauder. Shields is an heiress to the aristocracy worth hundreds of millions.
