Michael Jackson once did the sweetest thing for Jennifer Love Hewitt

Yahoo Entertainment

Jennifer Love Hewitt visited Jimmy Kimmel Live! where she remembered the time she was 10 years old and worked with Michael Jackson on a commercial. It was just a one day shot for the shoe brand LA Gear, but it was one day Hewitt will never forget.

Hewitt was 10 years old at the time, which actually helped her stay more relaxed at the time. She said, "If I'd been in my 20's I probably would have pood my pants a little bit -- 'Oh my God, I'm about to work with Michael Jackson!' At 10, it was like this is so cool, he's going to be really fun. It wasn't a big deal."

Hewitt had to leave the shoot early because she was working at a charity function that same evening. And apparently Jackson was very impressed with her commitment to charity. Hewitt recalled, "He was like, you don't know how important it is that you're doing something that's special and important for other people. And he was like, never lose that, always be that person."

Hewitt got a big surprise that evening when Jackson made a sizable donation to the charity in her name. The two became friends as a result of that day and Hewitt remembered the musician very fondly.
