    In dialogue with the podcast "Inside of You" - which can be heard on YouTube - the protagonist of the movie "My Poor Little Angel" referred to the criticism that caused his friendship with the interpreter of "Thriller".

    "A lot of great things were happening to me and everything happened so fast (after the fame that I achieved with the film) and I think (Michael Jackson) identified with that," said the 38-year-old actor.

    "It's easy to try to think or say it was strange, but it was not, for me it made sense and, in the end, we became friends," he added.
