Michael Jackson's daughter Paris discussed life with her late father and a budding acting career in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.

The 13-year-old said that she had thought it was "stupid" to wear a mask when she went out in public with her father but now feels he was trying to protect her.

Paris, one of Jackson's three children, has her first part in a film. She spoke of her love for acting in the interview and said it was inspired by seeing her father in Moonwalker.
