Paris Hilton addresses ‘toxic’ beauty standards on social media and the impact it can have on young people: ‘It’s not good for someone’s mind’

Paris Hilton has spoken out about ever-changing beauty standards on social media during a candid interview on The Sunday Project.

The 41-year-old, who has almost 19 million Instagram followers, said that the overuse of filters and editing apps in today’s society can be ‘toxic’ for young people to see.

‘I can’t imagine being 12, 13-years-old and seeing these beauty standards that are not real, and using the filters all the time,’ Paris told host Lisa Wilkinson.

‘I think in some ways it can be very toxic. 

‘It’s just… I don’t know. I think it’s not really good for someone’s mind at that age.’ 

Paris soared to fame after starring in reality TV show The Simple Life from 2003 to 2007, alongside her best pal Nicole Richie.

‘I played that character from The Simple Life for so long in the public eye… I always love being underestimated. I love proving people wrong.

Paris has since found her happily-ever-after and married Carter Reum over the course of a three-day extravaganza last November.

In January 2022, she told Daily Pop she would like to have ‘probably two or three’ children with her new husband.
