Ireland Baldwin – the daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger – knows what it’s like to be thrust into the spotlight because of your famous parents, and she has some words of advice for another celeb offspring who’s going through a tough time – Paris Jackson. Ireland had this to say to Michael Jackson‘s teen daughter after her suicide attempt last week.
“All of us, no matter who you are, get tons of Twitter negativity and there [are] some people that say horrific things but she just shouldn’t mind them,” Ireland told ET. “[Paris] has so many people that support her.”
“I think she is a gorgeous girl. She’s one of the most beautiful girls her age I’ve ever seen. It saddens me to see her going through something like that.”
The 17-year-old says she’s had her own share of bullying, and had some words of wisdom for Paris.
“We’ve all been teased and had our hair pulled now and then. …. I have gone through things with girls and I think it takes time and maturity to say ‘OK, they are going to say this about me and they are going to comment on how I look…and [people] are always going to have an opinion’ and it’s best to just shut it out.”
