PARIS JACKSON says that yeah, she really loves acting, and you’ll see just how much when she opens up about her dreams of breaking into Hollywood on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” which airs tomorrow night on CBS.
The late King of Pop’s only girl, Paris, taped a show with Ellen earlier where she talked about what life has been like for her and her siblings for the past few months since the (Dr. Conrad Murray) trial, and how much she’s always wanted to act after seeing her dad in the 1988 anthology movie, “Moonwalker”…
“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,”
Paris says of her younger years when Michael was still alive.
“Yeah, we would do improv together. He would give us little scenarios. He would say, ‘Okay, in this scene you’re going to cry’… and I’d cry on the spot.”
Paris relates that she did have a chance to have a normal childhood growing up…
“I do have a regular childhood. I mean, I’m treated the same. When I came to Buckley [her school] they didn’t know who I was. I was like, yes, I have a chance to be normal.”
…but hated the masks her father made her wear.
“Yeah, I’m like, this is stupid, why am I wearing a mask? But I kind of realized the older I got, he only tried to protect us and he’d explain that to us, too.”
One thing that really stuck with her was something Michael told her once:
“He said, ‘If I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you.’ I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me.”
And we’re assuming Michael Jackson told her to follow in his footsteps because 13-year-old Paris will soon be appearing in her debut movie, a feature film entitled “Lundon’s Bridge and The Three Keys.”
