Soleil Moon Frye is best known as a Punky Brewster star, but her rise to fame happened years ago. On Tuesday morning she was on The Today Show talking about life, kids and her hot tub time with Michael Jackson at age eight.
The confident actress shares the story of her being alone in the hot tub with the famous star watching Willy Wonka like it was no big deal at the time. Later she admits that it was a unique experience.
“My friend’s dad was over there and we went over there. And my mom was doing an event. She was an amazing food artist. And I so I wound up staying late I was there with Michael,” said Soleil Moon Frye. “We watched Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory and it was such a fun crazy experience.”
According to her book, they didn’t just watch the movie together, the entertainer and the youngster sat in the hot tub and chatted as well.
“So there I was sitting with Michael Jackson, alone in his Jacuzzi, talking about life, love, and the secrets of the world. I was eight years old,” writes Soleil Moon Frye in her latest book Happy Chaos.
While there didn’t seem to be any question it was a unique experience for the young actress, one has to wonder how many other kids came by Michael Jackson’s estate to share a moment that have yet to step forward and shared a moment.
