Paris Jackson just wrapped up her first solo interview with Ellen DeGeneres -- where she opened up about her acting aspirations, her childhood and wearing masks growing up.
The well-adjusted 13-year-old just landed her first acting gig as the lead in "Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys" -- playing the only human in the animated flick.
"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," Paris tells Ellen. "I saw that and I said, wow, I want to be just like him."
As for constantly wearing masks when she and brothers Prince and Blanket were children, she says she used to think "this is stupid why am I wearing a mask? But I kind of realized the older I got like he [father Michael Jackson] only tried to protect us and he’d explain that to us too."
She also revealed the most memorable thing her father ever told her: "He said, if I die tomorrow always remember what I told you. I took his advice and I remembered everything he told me."
Check out the full interview with Paris when it airs Thursday, December 15.
