Culkin has had a tough ride through Hollywood. He was a child star, who is still known as "the kid from Home Alone'". Let's face it, we all know what tends to happen to child stars once their run is up. He has had a tough time with his career; however, he has found a couple of hits, such as The Good Son, and Party Monster, since his Home Alone days. Aside from his small career, he also lost Michael Jackson, who was a dear friend to him for practically his entire life. Him and long-time girlfriend Mila Kunis broke up in the last year, which I am sure also has taken a toll on him mentally and emotionally. Could these big losses and lack of success triggered a downward spiral? That is what many are thinking after seeing this shocking photo of the usually good looking Macaulay Culkin.
It was reported that he has a role starring in a new film about a British army general, so perhaps the substantial weight loss is for the movie role? Although the curse of the child star is prevalent in Hollywood, I am hoping that their is a solid reason that explains this look he was seen sporting. I would hate to think that a star that I grew up loving is headed down a scary road. Good luck to you Macaulay, but do us a favor and put on a few pounds, please? We do not enjoy seeing you looking like an old homeless man.
