In their new book, 'In the Company of Legends,' Joan Kramer and David Heeley shared that Katharine Hepburn and Michael Jackson had an unlikely friendship.
The American actress mentioned in an interview in 1980s that she met MJ through Jane Fonda, who was already friends with the singer, the New York Post reported.
Jackson, who would have been around 22 during the shooting of the 1981 film 'On Golden Pond,' had come to visit Fonda, but she had to fly back to LA one weekend, so she put Hepburn in charge for taking care of the 'Beat It' artist.
Even though Hepburn didn't knew Jackson very well she found a room for the pop star in the attic of an old house they were staying in.
Hepburn also took Jackson to a public laundromat in a woodsy New England town, as he didn't knew how to wash clothes and showed him how to feed quarters into the pay washing machines.
