Paris Hilton Is One Of The Most Down To Earth People She Knows

Just when you forget about Paris Hilton, she's back! In philosophical mode: here she tells Esquire "what she's learned." It's vintage — like, 2004 — Paris: good, bad, ugly and plain weird. And strangely comforting!

Paris Hilton has, at this point, been around long enough, and consistently enough, that there's something comforting about her. Whatever's happening in the world, however bad the economy, Paris abides. She's like some kind of oblivious heiress from a 1930's screwball comedy, so maybe it's no coincidence that it feels really good to read her words of wisdom right now. It seems almost unfair for Esquire to just compile a bunch of sound bites: it would make anyone sound ridiculous. And it's not like, historically, Paris Hilton has been such a difficult target in that regard. Does she say absurd things? Yes. But she also says some reasonable ones! Get your death, taxes and Paris fix here:

Asinine:
"I put pheromones in a lot of my fragrances, and that attracts people to you. My new fragrance is called Fairy Dust. I'm dressed kind of like Tinkerbell."

"Trust is just a feeling that you have."

Thoughtful-ish:
"I always send thank-you notes. If somebody has done something really special for me, I'll make them a collage of pictures or a little piece of art."

"You may not be able to be hot when you're seventy-five in a conventional sense. Like, young people won't think you're hot. But your husband will, and so will people your own age."

"I'm not jealous. I don't understand why people are jealous. You have so much better karma in life when you wish other people the best."

Ludicrous:
"Having a nightclub in your house really helps for having a party, because then you don't need to go out."

"Once I've worn a dress, I can never wear it again. I give them to charities and they auction them off to help people with breast cancer, multiple sclerosis, and AIDS. Some that are really, really special, I keep in storage for my daughters. They'll be vintage by then. I think my daughters will love them."

"Because of my last name and the way I look, some people think I'm a spoiled brat. But I'm not like that at all. I'm one of the most down-to-earth people I know out of anyone in Hollywood."
