Ac­tor Rus­sell Crowe says he was re­lent­lessly pranked by King Of Pop Michael Jack­son.

The 52-year-old “Gla­di­a­tor” star, who was on “The Gra­ham Nor­ton

Show,” re­vealed that he re­ceived prank calls from the “Thriller” hit­maker, re­ported Dig­i­tal Spy.

“He just got into the habit of wher­ever I was stay­ing, (Michael) would just call into the ho­tel, ask for my room and put on funny voices.

“I’d never met him! The first cou­ple people I said it to – I didn’t want to sound like I was in­sane… When I ac­tu­ally started talk­ing to people who re­ally knew him well, they’d go, ‘Man, he does it all the time’,” Crowe said. The le­gendary mu­si­cian used to re­veal his iden­tity, af­ter the ac­tor got ir­ri­tated. “I used to do that – when I was like 11 and 12 (Michael) would al­ways start off be­ing kind of gruff, like he was the ho­tel man­age­ment and there was some kind of prob­lem.

“If I got kind of ir­ri­tated, he’d just (chuckle and say), ‘Don’t worry Rus­sell, it’s only Michael!’,” he re­called. How­ever, the two never met.
