Paulina Longworth Sturm (February 14, 1925 — January 27, 1957) was an American socialite. She was the only child of Alice Roosevelt Longworth (1884–1980), and a granddaughter of U.S. President Theodore "T.R." Roosevelt, Jr. (1858–1919).

Paulina was born on Valentine's Day, exactly 41 years after Alice's mother Alice Hathaway Lee and Theodore's mother Martha Stewart "Mittie" Bulloch had died.

Paulina's mother Alice was seen as a great beauty in her youth, and was a celebrity closely followed by the press, particularly when she was part of a diplomatic tour of Asia led by Secretary of War William Howard Taft and other officials. Her White House wedding in 1906 was considered a huge event at the time.

Paulina endured melancholy throughout her life. She had a complex relationship with her famous mother who was overbearing and belittling to her, while at the same time unavailable for emotional and physical comfort. Paulina was widowed at 26 and died of a pill overdose at the age of 31 in 1957.
