Was Macaulay Culkin Doing $6k Of Heroin Monthly?

Posted on

Many of us remember Macaulay Culkin as the 8-year old trouble maker in Home Alone. In his adulthood, he became known as the former child star that became weird, too thin, and must be heavily on drugs.

For years these rumors circulated the net and in tabloids, but Culkin never said much about it. That is until now.

In a rare interview with the Guardian, Culkin has spoken out about the rumors and said that the public was “not necessarily” right to worry about him when photos emerged in 2012 of him looking extremely gaunt.

“No, I was not pounding six grand of heroin every month or whatever,” said the 35-year-old. “The thing that bugged me was tabloids wrapping it all in this weird guise of concern. No, you’re trying to shift papers.”

Culkin said “perhaps.” after being asked if there was a bigger story that he may want to tell one day.

Since his break up with Mila Kunis ended, his dating life hasn’t been as private as he wishes.

“It’s been like that my whole adult life,” Culkin adds. “You take on a prey-like attitude, always scanning the horizon. It’s strange on dates, as it looks like you’re not paying attention.”

“The other day … I’d crossed the wrong street, picked up a tail, suddenly there’s a crush of 20 paparazzi,” he says. “Then people with camera phones get involved. I don’t think I’m worthy of that.”

“People feel they have to be in perpetual motion, or drown. I’ve never had a problem saying I’ve got nothing lined up,” he shares. “Maybe I’ll take the next year off. I’m not much active. If I knew what I wanted to do, I’d be writing it myself.”
Today Culkin spends most of his time in France.
