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 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.
