Paris Jackson opens up about her happy place and her man crush on Michael Cera

Paris Jackson finally took some time off work to discuss personal matters. In a recent interview with Cosmopolitan, she spoke about all things personal, ranging from her happy place to her intense man crush on Michael Cera.

The 19-year-old model and actress is making her major movie acting debut in the upcoming film 'Gringo,' alongside Charlize Theron and David Oyelowo, and sat down with Cosmopolitan to dish on everything in her life.

Despite her jet-setting childhood, Jackson admitted that her happy place is, “in the middle of nowhere, cooking baked beans over an open fire.”

She’s clearly the outdoor type, adding that she thinks one thing everyone in their 20s should do is “go backpacking. It’s a cool way to give yourself space for self-creation.”

The actress and model also talked about how she’s got a weakness for “kind eyes,” and sees her best trait as her “intuition” and her worst as “the stereotypical Aries cons: feisty, impulsive, stubborn.”

Although she is usually guarded about her personal life, Jackson has recently started sharing more with fans and followers on social media, and even went on to admit that her favorite account to follow is NASA’s official page.

With respect to her #MCM and #WCWs, the young starlet confessed to crushing on actor Michael Cera, saying, “If you’ve seen any of his films, then you’d know why I think he’s so great… He’s adorable”. On the other hand, she labeled Australian singer-songwriter Tash Sultana as her #WCW.

Jackson even admitted to getting starstruck, sharing that the last time she was nervous was “meeting Paul McCartney.”

Jackson, who will turn 20 in April, clearly has big goals for the future, which travel beyond her career in entertainment. She said that, by this time next year, she hopes to have “joined more movements in the name of [peace] and [love].”
