London - Aaron Paul was given life advice by Michael Jackson.

The 'Breaking Bad' actor met the late King of Pop - who famously had a difficult upbringing with his strict father Joe - at a party thrown by Brunei's Prince Azim in London six years ago, and the 'Thriller' star advised him all hurts could be healed if he was able to forgive them.

Aaron recalled: "[The prince] was sitting on the couch with Michael Jackson, and me and [Michael] 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, 'OK, Michael, let's do this.'"

The 34-year-old actor was invited by a friend of a friend to attend the party, but instantly hit it off with the prince and they bonded in an unusual way.

He told Details magazine: "We got there and I see, like, a thousand sheep, surrounding the castle, and I said, 'Let's go chase after them.' So me and the prince and the princesses chased the animals."

However, things could have gone wrong for the 'Need for Speed' star as he broke one of the prince's hovercrafts.

He said: "Nobody else was riding them but if I have a chance to hovercraft around a castle, I'm going to hovercraft." - Bang Showbiz
