Michael Jackson’s eldest son has been seeking advice from big stars on how to succeed in Hollywood.
Prince Michael I appeared alongside the cast of new movie Oz the Great and Powerful for an interview with Entertainment Tonight. During the segment, which airs in the US on Tuesday evening, Prince was also given tips on how to interview. The expert tuition inspired him to pose questions for James Franco and his co-star Zach Braff.
Prince revealed he dreams of becoming a director, as well as an actor, producer and screenwriter. Eager to learn all he can about his chosen profession, the 16-year-old quizzed actor-and-filmmaker James on how to pursue his ambitions.
"I always tell people, 'Just go out and try and stop waiting around or dreaming it's going to happen. Just go and start doing some things on your own,'" James replied.
During his chat with Entertainment Tonight, Prince revealed he admires Oprah Winfrey. The confident teenager explained he had learnt a lot from watching the legendary talk show host’s casual interviewing technique. Prince also says his younger sister Paris and brother Prince Michael II, known as Blanket, are a source of inspiration.
Prince isn’t the only one of late superstar Michael’s children to show an interest in show business.
Last year, it was reported that 14-year-old Paris was eager to pursue a career as an actress.
While she refused to name the project she is working on, Paris revealed it is not a reality TV show.
"[My acting career is going] great," Paris said. "No it's not reality television. I like to keep some parts of our life private, you know?"
