Paris Jackson recently taped an episode of 'Ellen,' scheduled to air today on KVII, and talked about life with her dad, wanting to act and the advice the King of Pop always gave her.

In regards to wearing masks in public with her famous father, Paris told the talk show host, "I'm like, 'This is stupid, why am I wearing a mask? But I kind of realized the older I got, like, he only tried to protect us and he'd explain that to us too."

Even though Michael Jackson tried to keep his children out of the spotlight, Paris has decided to follow in her father's footsteps. She has an upcoming role in the movie, 'Lundon's Bridge and The Three Keys," and she told Ellen, "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."

She added, "We would do improve together. He would give us little scenarios. He would go, 'Okay, in this scene you're going to cry,' and I'd cry on the spot."

Paris also talked about some of the best advice her dad gave her, "He said, 'If I die tomorrow, always remember what I told you.' I took his advice, and I remembered everything he told me."
