Michael Jackson prank called Russell Crowe for 3 years

The last we heard from Russell Crowe, he was telling women in Hollywood to act their ages and not their shoe sizes. Thankfully, his most recent anecdote is far less offensive and actually kind of hilarious. In a new interview with The Guardian, Russell revealed that he was the victim of endless prank phonecalls from the late Michael Jackson… for three long years!

“For two or three fucking years,” he says. “I never met him, never shook his hand, but he found out the name I stayed in hotels under, so it didn’t matter where I was, he’d ring up do this kind of thing, like you did when you were 10, you know. ‘Is Mr Wall there? Is Mrs Wall there? Are there any Walls there? Then what’s holding the roof up? Ha ha.’ You’re supposed to grow out of doing that, right?”

And that’s literally is. There’s no context to this story, it’s never discussed again… it just is what it is. If it wasn’t Michael Jackson we were talking about here, I’d probably call bullshit, but as it stands, I think this is a totally true and pretty hilarious story. Good ole MJ – ever the prankster! “LOL”
