Michael Jackson and Russell Crowe, Prank-Calling Pals

Well, this may be the most unexpected fact to come out of the Robin Hood press tour: Michael Jackson used to prank call Russell Crowe! The pair became so friendly after L.A. Confidential that Jackson would occasionally call up Crowe and "a gruff voice would say something was wrong, then this tiny little voice said, ‘Don't worry. This is Michael," the actor told GQ UK. Crowe would also call L.A. Confidential author James Ellroy to say things like, “Woof-woof, hear the demon dog bark. He’s got a 12-inch wanger and it glows in the dark.” Which, makes it seem like someone needs to explain to Crowe the difference between a prank call and a creepy message. [Stuff UK]
