A fun memory...
In an interview with Details, Aaron Paul spoke about a time in which he took shots with Michael Jackson. Here are highlights:
On hanging out with Michael Jackson: "It was the Prince of Brunei's 25th-birthday party. Six years ago, outside London. We got there, and I see all these mud boots, and there were all these sheep, like a thousand sheep, surrounding the castle, and I said, 'Let's go chase after them.' So me and the prince and the princesses, Azemah and Fadzilah, all put on these mud boots and chased the animals. Nobody else was riding them (the Prince's hovercrafts) but if I have a chance to hovercraft around a castle, I'm going to hovercraft around a castle. I was going back up to my room. and this guy grabs me and says, 'Hey, Prince Azim wants to see you in the library.' So I go down there, and he's sitting on the couch with Michael Jackson, and me and Michael Jackson end up having this hour-long heart-to-heart about family and upbringings, and I remember, he just put his arm around my shoulder and said, 'You know, if you've had a rough childhood or not, it's all about forgiveness. Once you realize 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?' And he goes, 'Sure!' And I was like, 'Okay, Michael, let's do this.'"
On his early life: "My mother gave birth to me on our bathroom floor. My dad, who worked as a Southern Baptist minister, was out of town. My family never owned a home. We leased."
