Aaron Paul did shots with Jacko

Aaron Paul has revealed he once spent a party having a heart-to-heart and doing shots with Michael Jackson.

The Breaking Bad actor got chatting to the late King of Pop at a birthday bash for the Prince of Brunei six years ago, at a castle outside of London, where he was the guest of another guest.

He told Details magazine: "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 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?' And he goes, 'Sure!' And I was like, 'Okay, Michael, let's do this'."

Aaron, 34, also told how he accidentally broke one of the prince's hovercraft at the luxurious bash.

"Nobody else was riding them," he said. "But if I have a chance to hovercraft around a castle, I'm going to hovercraft around a castle."
