Paris Jackson is well on her way to becoming a teen actress at the objection of her aunt. Although Janet Jackson would like her niece to pursue her dreams, she wants Paris to enjoy childhood first.
“We’ve spoken about the fact that you’re only a child once,” said Janet to Prevention magazine. “I think there’s a time for everything, and now is not the time [to act in films]. I told her I thought she should enjoy being a kid, possibly go to college—or not—but wait till she turns 18. She’s a very tough, smart girl. But it’s a cutthroat industry. I wouldn’t want my child to do it.”
Paris is scheduled to make her acting debut in 2014 as the heroine in Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys. The 14-year-old is the late Michael Jackson’s only daughter.
