It may be hard for a lot of people to believe, but Michael Jackson’s daughter turns 20 years old this Tuesday.

Paris was not even a teenager when her father passed away in 2009. Now she is all grown up and stepping into the spotlight on her own. (RELATED: Paris Jackson’s Birthday Tribute To Her Father Falls Somewhere Between Concerning And Creepy)

While Paris didn’t follow her father’s footsteps into the music industry, she is still making a name for herself in entertainment. The King of Pop’s only daughter is a rising star in the movie industry and just made her big screen debut in the newly released dark comedy “Gringo,” starring Charlize Theron.

Some people out there surely assumed that Jackson landed the role because of her name, but Theron claims that she killed the audition and got the part “fair and square.” We’ll just have to wait and see how her career plays out, but she’s got some serious shoes to fill.
