'I have slept in a bed with many children. I am Peter Pan in my heart.'
'I slept in a bed with all of them (the Culkin kids) when Macaulay Culkin was little. Kieran Culkin would sleep on this side, Macaulay Culkin was on this side, his sisters in there. We all would just jam in the bed.'
'When you say 'bed,' you're thinking sexual. It's not sexual, we're going to sleep. I tuck them in. ... It's very charming, it's very sweet.'
'Whenever kids come here they always want to stay with me. (laughs) They never want to stay in the guest rooms. And I have never invited them into my room, they always just want to stay with me. They say, 'Can I stay with you tonight?' So I go, 'If it's okay with your parents, then yes.''
—Michael Jackson to Martin Bashir, on LIVING WITH MICHAEL JACKSON, on ABC
