While some stars have had to tirelessly work dead-end jobs to make ends meet while they pursued their dreams of being a star, these 5 celebrities became famous by being born into families of prestige and fortune. 

Paris Hilton

Miley is the daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus, singer of the smash hit “Achy Breaky Heart” which topped the US Hit Country Song Charts back in 1992.

Billy Ray Cyrus’ fortune of over 25 million dollars and his role in country music definitely helped his daughter pursue a career in music and score her first major role as Hannah Montana.
