I don’t care about celebrities much anymore but Macaulay Culkin is one that I always had a lot of respect for. As some of you know, Macaulay was a big child star… starring in some of Hollywood’s biggest movies such as “Home Alone”, “My Girl”, “The Good Son”, “Richie Rich”, “Uncle Buck”, etc. Then suddenly after the film “Richie Rich”, Macaulay somewhat semi-retired from the film industry. He’s not completely retired from the industry, he still acts in films occasionally, he’s just staying away from huge blockbusters. He no longer wants to do those big movies anymore ’cause he figures that this fame and celebrity lifestyle wasn’t for him. He left the film industry so he can live a real life for himself.
Even though Macaulay doesn’t do movies much anymore, he has never really gone away ’cause he has his own podcast show, his website and he is still around trying to entertain us in his own way. What I like even more about Macaulay is that he’s a huge professional wrestling fan. If I ever met him in person, I could talk wrestling all day with him.
This article and interview talks the life of Macaulay Culkin. This article/interview is a great read too.
Will Macaulay ever return to blockbuster films? His girlfriend wants him to and he auditioned for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” but it didn’t go so well… he continues to stay retired even to this day but never say never. It would be cool if Macaulay returns to the movies as a leading actor once again… his girlfriend Brenda needs to keep pressuring him about it and maybe he will one day. It’s all up to him.
I’ve heard all the silly stories that Macaulay is a broken man with lots of problems when the real truth is that he’s actually doing well for himself and he’s still alive.
I’ve always loved listening to Macaulay in interviews… he’s a smart guy, interesting and entertaining to listen to.
