It's tragic when promising young actors become cautionary tales of childhood success!
During his Home Alone run, Macaulay Culkin was on top of the world, but now….he's lucky to be invited to auditions.
A source close to the struggling actor revealed:
"[Macaulay] isn't acting, but not by choice. He is vocal about wanting to revive his career, and he gets scripts and reads for parts."
What a shame!
We wonder whether his blacklisting has to do with speculation of heroin abuse or the Mila Kunis break-up he may be hung up on!
Another source offered another possibility, saying:
"[He is] trying to relive [his youthful] days… hosting dress-up parties in which guests are invited to come dressed as a movie character or dinosaur."
First of all, always go with velociraptor. Those prehistoric dudes and dudettes were FIERCE!
Secondly, what the heck?!?
A dinosaur shindig? At least now we know why he was so convincing in Party Monster!
And a third source confirmed what already seems evident. They said:
"He likes to live as a child. Growing up has not been good to Macaulay."
Poor guy! There are so many examples of fleeting fame doing children more harm than good.
We sincerely hope he turns the ship around soon!
