Following Paris Jackson's suicide attempt last week, Ireland Baldwin reached out to the teenage daughter of Michael Jackson, which she exclusively discussed with ET at her Elle photo shoot.
Of her comments to Jackson via Twitter, the model daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger tells ET:
"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. ... 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. [Jackson] has so many people that support her."
Baldwin also reveals that she has experienced bullying in her own life, and explained how she responded to it.
"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."
