It's Absolutely Shocking How Good Macaulay Culkin Looks These Days.
On 11th December 2017
With Christmas soon to arrive, it's the time of year that everyone starts practicing their favorite holiday traditions. For some, that means breaking out their copy of Home Alone and watching the, still hilarious, film. Even though it was released in 1990 it is still a Christmas classic that families enjoy together every year. The success of the film led to 10-year-old Macaulay Culkin becoming a household name. He might have been the most memorable child star since Shirley Temple and definitely left an impact on everyone who watched him on the screen. Sadly, like most child stars Culkin hit a rough patch. These day's however, Culkin is looking much better and seems to have turned his life around.
His first drug bust.
Long after the success of films like Richie Rich and the Home Alone series, Culkin hit rock bottom. On September 17th, 2004 he found he found himself being arrested by Oklahoma City police and charged with possession of 2 controlled substances and Marijuana. This would only be the beginning of his legal and drug-related problems.
A shell of his former self.
In the 10 years that followed, Culkin was known more for the images like the one below, than he was for his acting. Many began to question his mental and physical health as the star plummeted farther and farther from the heights he had reached as a child.
His love life was a mess.
Culkin's very short marriage to Rachel Miner had ended in divorce by 2002. His relationships with Jordan Lane Price and Mila Kunis also ended in similar public flames. It seemed that Culkin would never get his life back on track
His acting career was pretty much over.
No matter how bad life got, Culkin could rely on his acting to save the day right? Wrong! Culkin was forced to appear in embarrassing cameos in tv and film while any roles that required real acting was met with very harsh but deserved criticism.
To top it off, his band, The Pissa Underground, was terrible to put it nicely. From 2012 to 2016 the band would cover pop songs but replace words with pizza related terms like "cheese", "pizza", or "slice". The band was so horrible that they were once booed off stage while the crowd threw full mugs of beer at them.
There is hope.
Recent pics paint a very different picture of the former child star. For once, there appears to be hope that he is turning it around. It's always hard to see someone you thought a lot of falling on hard times but with Culkin's latest outing hope has been restored.
Fans couldn't resist showing their relief.
For many longtime fans, these recent photos have made them very happy for him. @RobsessedHeart said:
People couldn't help but gush over how good he looks.
The photos show Culkin with his GF Brenda Song out for a night on the town with friends and his goddaughter, Paris Jackson, who just so happens to be the daughter of his good friend the late Michael Jackson.
He looked really good on his night out.
Culkin and co enjoyed a night out in Paris France. The group ate at some of the most respected restaurants in the city such as L'Atelier.
They look so happy.
Culkin and Jackson have been friends for a very long time. You may remember that Culkin's friendship with her dad began after he appeared in the music video for Michael's song 'Black or White'. Macaulay and Paris even have matching tattoos.
We really hope that he is finally getting his life back on track.
Culkin and Song started dating earlier this year when they met while filming their upcoming movie, Changeland, directed by Seth Green in Thailand.
29 year old Song said: "It’s been incredible. We spent five weeks in Thailand shooting this. Seth directed and wrote and starred in it, and this has been in the making for the last seven years, so he made it happen, it was incredible – it was like, Changeland for me."
It's nice to see Culkin happy and looking healthy for a change. Hopefully, with a new generation being introduced to Home Alone over the holiday they get to see that Kevin McCallister has grown up and is doing great.
