Michael Jackson's Daughter, Paris, Thought Wearing Masks Was 'Stupid'

King of pop used to hide his children's identities..

Paris Jackson admits she felt the masks she was made to wear, by her father Michael, as a child were 'stupid'.

The King of pop famously made his three children, Paris, Michael and Prince Michael II wear decorative masks in public to hide their identities.

Speaking on the Ellen DeGeneres show, Paris,13, said "I'm like, 'This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask?' But I kind of realised the older I got, he only tried to protect us and he'd explain that to us too."

The masks also allow Paris to have a 'normal' childhood, with her classmates at The Buckley School failing to recognise her.

"I do have a regular childhood. I mean, I'm treated the same. When I came to (my new school) they didn't know who I was. I was like, 'Yes, I have a chance to be normal,'" she said.

Now that she's older, however, Paris would like to be in the spotlight more often. She will play the lead in the fantasy adventure Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys, which is based on a young adult series by Dennis H. Christen.

On her desire to be an actress she said "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.' I was little. I was younger than Blanket."

Adding "'We would do improvisation together. He would give us little scenarios. He would say, "OK, in this scene, you're going to cry," and I would cry on the spot.'

It seems the Jackson dynasty are set for the big screen.
