Chris Zylka is the soon-to-be husband of Paris Hilton. Here are five facts about the actor, including his past life and net worth.
Chris Zylka: Paris Hilton’s fiancee
You definitely know Paris Hilton. Hilton is an all-wrapped-into-one kind of person. She’s not only a businesswoman and an heirless of pf part of her family’s fortune but also a model, a media personality, actress, singer, and DJ. Hilton is engaged to Chris Zylka, and both have been the media’s interest since the beginning of this year. But you probably don’t know much Hilton’s husband to be Chris Zylka. Zylka is a model and actor, just like Hilton. Born and raised in Warren, Ohio, the 32-year-old actor, Chris Zylka took his mother’s maiden name “Zylka” as a stage name. His real name is Christopher Michael Settlemire. Zylka has some Ukranian and German roots. Hilton’s future husband studied at the University of Toledo. Zylka grew up in a humble family and used to play football. Probably not knowing that he would be a star someday, he started doing art and currently, it is his other job after acting.
Five facts about Chris Zylka
He was once homeless
Zylka dropped out from the University of Toledo because of his financial constraints. He decided to move to California and pursue his dreams. In 2012, Zylka talked to Out magazine and described his struggles before he became an actor. Hilton’s husband-to-be stated that he was once homeless and working at a restaurant. It’s at the restaurant that Jon Simmons came to have lunch and met Zylka. He asked Zylka if he wanted to be an actor. Zylka said that he wished to be but had never worked as an actor before. Jon trained Zylka, developed him and like they say. The rest is history.
His debut role was in 2018
Zylka’s first appearance was on “90210” in 2008. Shortly after that, he got a recurring role in the comedy, “Everybody Hates Chris” still in 2008. But Zylka is more known for his roles in movies and TV shows like “The Amazing Spiderman,” “Kaboom,” “Piranha 3DD,” “Shark Night 3D,” and “The Leftovers.”
He had been engaged again before
Even before he got close with Paris Hilton in 2017, Zylka was engaged to Hanna Beth who is a model and a designer. They got engaged in 2014 and broke up in 2015 after ten months of engagement. Zylka went further to accuse his ex-fiance on social media of cheating on him. Zylka’s ex, Beth responded on her Twitter indirectly saying that Zylka didn’t get his way and so he wanted to bring her down. She added that people who bring others down should not be allowed to and no reaction was better than any reaction. Beth also said that making up lies about another person because of a heartbreak never made anyone feel better.
Zylka has many tattoos
By 2014, Zylka had 17 tattoos. He has probably added some more since then, one of them being the name of his fiancée, Hilton. Paris Hilton posted the arm of her husband to be’s arm, with her name “Paris” written in Disney font, on Instagram. Hilton captioned it that she was the luckiest girl and that Zylka surprised her. She also wrote that Zylka told her that she was his most magical place in the world and Hilton was his fairytale princess.
He likes being the villain
You have probably realized that Zylka is always the bad guy in all the movies and TV shows he has starred. Maybe you thought it’s the directors who like putting him there, but you are wrong. In an interview, Zylka revealed that he prefers to act as the bad guy rather than the good one. Zylka added that despite playing those roles, he tries to get that villain attitude of his system so that it doesn’t be part of his normal life and hurt people around him.
Zylka as Flash
Zylka stars in “Amazing Spiderman” and “Amazing Spiderman 2” as Eugene “Flash” Thompson. He is a high school bully who mainly targets Peter Parker. On one scene, he bullies a classmate and forces him to eat a vile food product. He asks Parker to record him, but he refuses. They end up fighting as a result, but Gwen interrupts them.
His role in The Secret Circle
Hilton’s future husband, Zylka, stars as Jake Armstrong in “The Secret Circle.” In the TV show, Jake has a brooding alter ego, and he is dark and mysterious. “The Secret Circle” is one of the hit TV Series in 2012, and watching Jake have a thing for a thing for Cassie, who Adam is also interested in, you just want to watch more.
Hilton’s future husband also features in Shark Night
Another movie that Zylka stars in is “Shark Night.” The horror film tells the story of seven Tulane University undergraduates who, one of them being Blake, characterized by Zylka. They go through mayhem when they stay near a lake. “Shark Night” didn’t do well at the box office and even received generally negative reviews.
Zylka as Tommy
One of the most recent TV shows Zylka has featured in is “The Leftovers.” He plays the role of Tom Garvey. Tommy has dropped out of college and is staying with a mysterious guy called “Holy Wayne.” The TV show is one of the best HBO series.
His net worth
Zylka has a net worth of $4 million and critics are trying to figure out where he got $2 million to buy Hilton’s engagement ring. Hilton, on the other hand, has a net worth of whooping $300 million, making her future husband’s net worth look like a drop in the ocean. Most of Hilton’s net worth is probably from her inheritance.
It’s 2018 and the year is long enough for us to see more of Zylka. His fans can’t wait to see him marry one of the wealthiest celebrities in Hollywood. Being hooked up to a socialite is a risky affair. Hopefully, Hilton doesn’t disappoint Zylka as Beth did.
