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.”
