Macaulay Culkin (born 26.08.80) is an American former actor, best known for his work during his early career in the film 'Home Alone' and its sequel, 'Home Alone 2: Lost in New York'.

Net Worth: According to Celebrity Net Worth in 2014, Macaulay Culkin has a net worth of 15 million USD.

Childhood: Macaulay Culkin was born in New York to Broadway actor Christopher Cornelius Culkin and Patricia Brentrup. As a child, Culkin studied at a Catholic school, as well as studying ballet at the School of American Ballet. From the age of four, Culkin was involved in acting in a few stage roles.

Career: In 1990, Macaulay Culkin gained his most successful role in the film 'Home Alone' as Kevin, the main character. Two years later, he reprised his role in the film 'Home Alone 2: Lost in New York'. Despite the success of the original film and the moderate success of the sequel, due to declining success of his additional film and television appearances, he took some time out of the film industry. After making a brief reappearance in the early 2000s, Culkin made various appearances in reality television shows and contests.

In December 2013, Culkin recorded a video of himself eating pizza as a parody of Andy Warhol's video of eating a burger for a documentary. The video went viral, and worked as promotion for his New York-based underground comedy rock band, The Pizza Underground. When the band was booed off-stage on one occasion, the band cancelled their later tours throughout 2014. 

Personal Life: Despite refusing to comment on his personal life, Macaulay Culkin was arrested in 2004 for drug possession, as well as supporting Michael Jackson during his trial, as the two had become friends during his early career.

Macaulay Culkin Denies Spending $6,000 Per Month On Heroin


Macaulay Culkin

Former child star Macaulay Culkin has at last addressed long-standing rumours that he was blowing $6,000 per month on heroin.

Back in 2012, an American magazine claimed that the troubled actor was spending around thousands of dollars every month feeding a heroin addiction. However, Culkin spoke to The Guardian to deny the accuracy of that story, also scotching the suggestion that the person who supplied that story was doing so to help him.

When asked whether people were right to be concerned about him, the 35 year old replied: “Not necessarily”.

Ever Wondered What Happened To Macaulay Culkin's 'Home Alone' Character?


Macaulay Culkin

Everyone's favourite Christmas classic has finally been given a half-decent sequel as Macaulay Culkin returns as the now-troubled Kevin McCallister from 'Home Alone' in the first episode of web series ':DRYVRS'. It's slightly gruesome, full of bad language but is nonetheless a hilarious parody of this all-grown-up beloved character.

Macaulay CulkinKevin McCallister never recovered from his 'Home Alone' trauma

Ever wondered just what happened to Kevin McCallister in his later years? Being left at home (alone) while your family fly to Europe understandably has lasting effects on your morale, but we bet you didn't think things could get this bad. In this episode, lead character Jack Dishel from indie band The Moldy Peaches meets Kevin as he steps in for his wife as a driver for her car service - even though he can't drive. Jack offers to take the wheel, and their subsequent conversation soon gets awkward when Kevin ignores a call from his mother. 'You forward calls from your mom? That's ice cold, dude', says Jack, to the annoyance of Kevin.

Nicolas Cage Wears Nicolas Cage Meme T-Shirt To Guns N' Roses Concert


Nicolas Cage Macaulay Culkin Ryan Gosling Rita Ora Madonna

In what may be our favourite Instagram post of all time, rock band Guns N’ Roses have shared an image of Nicolas Cage…wearing Nicolas Cage. The band posted the image, which features the iconic actor wearing a cowboy hat, blue blazer, copious beads around his neck, a pair of sunglasses and…finest of all, a t-shirt featuring an image from one of his famous fan-made memes.

Nicolas Cage may be one of Hollywood’s most famous actors, but over the past few years it’s the collection of memes and fan videos dedicated to him which he’s become best-known for. Cage’s habit of totally surrendering himself, body and soul, to a role has led to a few onscreen outbursts which fans go freaking nuts for.

Bottled Off: 10 Bands Who Suffered Worse Fate Than Macaulay Culkin's Pizza Underground

Macaulay Culkin and his pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band, the imaginatively named The Pizza Underground, suffered the chagrin of a disgruntled crown in Nottingham during the city’s annual Dot To Dot festival. Culkin, who was by this point half-way through a European tour, beat a hasty retreat from the stage after being drenched with beer.

Macaulay isn't the first star to feel the audience's ire.

It proved, that in this age of disconnect, where audience members can turn to the comforts of smart phones during lacklustre gigs, music fans are still eager to openly voice their displeasure. Only a few days later, Culkin announced the cancellation of the remaining tour dates. He has not openly cited the event as the primary motivation for such a cancellation, but it seems all too obvious that the hostile reception he received had severely impacted the decision. Macaulay is far from being the first to suffer the wrath of an embittered crowd and few are safe from the ramifications of a poor or ill-judged performance. Here are ten examples of performers receiving a severe dressing down from irate audiences:

Macaulay Culkin's "Pizza Underground" Chewed Up At Dot To Dot Festival


Dot To Dot Macaulay Culkin

Macaulay Culkin’s band, the oh-so-hilariously named Pizza Underground, got a chilly reception at last weekend’s Dot To Dot Festival in Manchester and Bristol. According to the New York Daily News, the band members were booed throughout their entire set and eventually driven offstage by the unruly and downright aggressive crowd. 33-year-old Culkin’s comedy band specializes in remaking popular songs to celebrate the miracle of pizza. They’ve mostly been a novelty hit at festivals thus far, but attendees at Dot to Dot just weren’t impressed with the music.

Festival goers did not appreciate Culkin and his band messing with classic songs.
