How to speak Australian...according to Paris Jackson
The 19-year-old model and daughter of the late Michael Jackson pretended to be an Aussie while making a prank call to her friend and Twilight alum Taylor Lautner during an appearance on the Hamish & Andy podcast in Australia this week. A video of the segment was posted on YouTube on Wednesday.
Paris first spoke to Taylor in her normal American accent, saying she was calling from Australia and that a local friend, "Rachel," really wanted to talk to him. Cue the Twlight puns and Australian stereotypes.
"Rachel," who many noted sounded more British than Australian, then proceeded to tell him how she often dreams about him...with his "paws" on her, and hopes he will one day visit the "land down under."
"Wow, you're, um, making me blush here," said Lautner, who played the werewolf Jacob in the Twilight movies.
"I'm so sorry, now, tell me, do you like Crocodile Dundee?" she asked.
"Um yeah," he said. "Absolutely."
The co-hosts then let Lautner know he'd been had.
"This is one of the weirdest phone calls I've ever gotten," he said.
