Macaulay Culkin's Childish Partyin' Kept Him Home Alone And Out Of Showbiz

| Filed under: DrugsFilm FlickersParty Poppin'Sad SadMila Kunis


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!

    All that attention as a child has left him emotionally stunted. It is so common among these child stars - their early fame teaches them that the world revolves around them, then they crater when they are no longer in demand. The thing that seems to save these kids is education. The more education they get, the more likely they are to be grounded.

    Living his life like a childhood…
    That sounds familiar..
    Wasn't he good friends with Michael Jackson?

    Michael jackson did a number on him. I wonder if Demi Lovato look at Mac and thinks. "Cutting and Bulima at least I am not fucked up like him"

    this "sources" are jealous assholes - what the fuck is wrong with dress up parties??! INTERESTING people DO this like this, asshats! it's called a "life", and "fun" - I doubt you've heard of either.

    Newsflash - pimping our your kid could ruin their life. There's a lot of neurosis in that family anyway.

    Stardom in general is pretty damaging to the Star.

    I think he's one of the more intelligent and creative celebrity casualties out there. I think he can definitely do great work and I hope he will. Having a dysfunctional response to that sort of background is, in its own way, normal and well adjusted. While he may be unbalanced and have an unreasonable sense of entitlement it's my impression that he is also very perceptive and witty.
