Paris Hilton and Chris Zylka first met at a party for the Oscars in 2010.

He began by debunking any “misconceptions” about the blonde beauty, 42, naming her a “wonderful human being” before revealing their romance came to an end because Hilton asked him to give up his career.

Due to Hilton’s personal experiences, Zylka shared “acting wasn’t a choice for me during that time,” referring to why he didn't do shows or movies during the couple’s two-year relationship. He explained he “completely understood” the reason for the reality TV star's request, but he admitted acting was “the one thing I couldn’t live without.”
