Paris Jackson Talks Acting with Ellen DeGeneres

Paris Jackson Talks Acting with Ellen DeGeneres

Paris Jackson smiles as she sits down to chat on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on an episode airing Thursday (December 15).

Here’s what the 13-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson had to share:

On when she knew she wanted to act: “When I was really little. My dad was in the movie Moonwalker and I knew he could sing really well but I didn’t know he could act. I saw that and I said, wow, I want to be just like him.”

On feeling like she’s had a regular childhood: “I do have like a regular childhood. I mean, I‘m treated the same. When I came to [my school,] they didn’t know who I was. I was like, yes, I have a chance to be normal.”

On whether she felt weird wearing masks when she was younger: “Yeah, I’m, like, this is stupid, why am I wearing a mask? But I kind of realized the older I got, [my dad] only tried to protect us and he’d explain that to us too.”

    She’s really pretty and seems so normal. I hope she stays that way. If she goes blonde, ugh!

    Although, I don’t believe the part where she says no one at her school knew who she was. I mean, really?

    If she goes blonde she will look like her mom Debbie Rowe! Twins!
    Ahenhas her first movie, guess Mikey must vemrolling over in his grave
    Seeing his daughter do a movie and guest appearance on Ellen. I’d he was still alive she would be hidden at home! Only Mikey would be seen.
    Seeing how she was with her brothers eating breakfast in the dining
    Room! When he died! Liberty for the kids now they’re free to do what they want since Michael wanted the at home !

    She’s very cute and well-spoken. It’s probably not good for her to be on tv right now. She’s too young.

    Nice to see Michael’s kids growing up healty, happy and normal. Say what you want about Michael but he was clearly a good father who instilled morals, a sense of responsibility and self-respect that is lacking in far too many “celebrity” children in his 3. I wish Paris and her brothers all the best in whatever they do. She is really growing up to be quite lovely inside and out. Hope it sticks.

    Jackson kids gets around Says:

    It is a shame that her father was addicted to Proforal and had to go to every doc till he got Doc Murray! Who would risk his career Dr Murray
    So that Michael could perform?! She is better off without her dad! Loser that he was! They lead a more productive life with choices that include
    Going to school!

    I love her, just like i love her father. He did the right thing with protecting his children. @#11, Michaels kid’s are very well educated and he was a good father. You can say what you want…look at his children and you see the proof. But haters gonna hate…

    Nice looking young lady. Hopefully Grampa Joe won’t use them to line his pockets. Definiately she’s not Michael’s biological dau, way to white, but then some was he, Actually glad that the Pedophile, Addict and it was his own fault he DIED, get with it people, he wasn’t a good parent good parents don’t drag the kids in masks in the middle of the night. Glad he’s dead, but to bar about the doctor who was just a patsy, wheres the person who died responsiblity.

    Sonia Says:

    my God she is gorgeous
    I kinda believe no one at her skl who knw who she was. Cuz the public never really saw her until his funeral on tv. No one really saw her pics and Jackson is a common last name and kids her age didn’t really knw much about Micheal until he passed away
    He really did a good job w/the kids and keeping his life private that way. If they were always in the public getting spoiled we would of have another Paris Hilton in the future

    I can’t believe she’s only 13. She looks like she’s 19 years old.

    She’s capitalizing on her step-dad, Michael’s celebrity, already.

    She does look just like Debbie. I don’t know why people are in denial. When she get up in age she will be Debbie’s twin. Like mother like daughter.
