(Newser) – Seems Marlon Brando once asked Michael Jackson about his sex life, and the pop star became surprisingly emotional. In Telephone Stories: The Trials of Michael Jackson, host Brandon Ogborn reads from a transcript of Brando talking to prosecutors in 1994 about sex-abuse accusations against the pop icon. "It's quite meandering, pretty loosey-goosey—he [Brando] probably would be canceled if he was around now," Ogborn tells the LA Times, adding that Brando is "also a weirdo, like Michael Jackson. So he's to me a weirdo who understands another weirdo in a weird world." At the time, Brando was apparently teaching Jackson how to act in return for dance lessons. Among the Brando quotes read by Ogborn:

  • "We were talking about human emotions and where it all comes from. I could see from the way he behaved—he talked like that, and he speaks in a very peculiar way for a man who is as old as my oldest son, 35. And he didn't want me to swear."
