‘Breaking Bad’ Star Recalls Heart-To-Heart With Michael Jackson


Adelle Platon / January 8, 2014

Aaron Paul may play second fiddle to meth lord Walter White on AMC’s hit series Breaking Bad but he once shared a special moment with a King.

In the February issue of Details, the actor known to most as Jesse Pinkman recounted a time when he had a heart-to-heart with the late pop icon Michael Jackson and chased sheep with a prince all in one night.

At a party hosted by Brunei’s Prince Azim, Paul said that he chopped it up with MJ about their childhoods and was even given some resounding advice.

“You know, if you’ve had a rough childhood or not, it’s all about forgiveness. Once you realise that, it’s fine. Everything’s fine.’ And I’m like, ‘Michael, you are absolutely right.’ And then I go, ‘Do you want to do a shot?’,” Paul recalled.

Paul also spoke about how he bonded with Prince Azim while chasing sheep outside of a castle and riding hovercrafts.

“We got there and I see, like, a thousand sheep, surrounding the castle,” he says, “and I said, ‘Let’s go chase after them.’ So me and the prince and the princesses chased the animals.”
