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.

Not all sequels are terrible - Toy Story, The Bourne Identity and Batman Begins all received excellent second (and third) instalments, for example - but sometimes a disastrous sequel comes along that nobody was asking for. Here are five of the worst.

Not dead, but possibly a comedian.
By the time everyone found out that Maccaulay Culkin had not, in fact, died on Saturday, November 8, the actor had already thought of a hilarious (more or less) way to make use of the buzz. On Sunday, Culkin’s band posted several pictures to their official Twitter, one with him smiling and holding up a soda with the caption, "We're on tour you silly people / @anchovywarhol's."
Macaulay Culkin is still very much alive.
So clearly, Culkin was/is alive and well and still delights audiences with his music – that last part is debatable, depending on who you ask, though.

Guns N' Roses posted a photo of Nicolas Cage wearing a Nicolas Cage t-shirt at their Las Vegas concert. He's not the only celeb who rocks a celebrity t-shirt from time to time.
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.

Macaulay Culkin's band were forced off the stage in Nottingham after facing a disgruntled crowd. But which bands in music history have suffered worse fate at the hands of displeased crowds?
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 band are sick of it
Macaulay Culkin’s comedy band, The Pizza Underground, hasn’t really had the desired effect. Pelted with beer and booed off stage in Nottingham last week, the band haven’t given a reason for cancelling the rest of their U.K dates, but it’s pretty obvious.
Macaulay Culkin wears weird jeans whenever he wants
Turns out, life in a novelty comedy band after being a worldwide child star isn’t as easy as everyone said it would be. All right, that’s pretty niche, but hell, the boy just wants to replace the words in Velvet Underground songs with the word pizza. It’s all niche.
Macaulay Culkin and his band 'The Pizza Underground' were booed off stage in Nottingham, but what went down?
If we could have one guess at what Macaulay Culkin is up to right now, it’s that he’s Home Alone sulking. OK, just kidding! We had to slip that one in somewhere, and it’s actually quite a likely guess.
Culkin and his band performed for 15 minutes before giving up and storming off stage
The 33 year old actor, best known for his role in the Home Alone films, angrily left the stage this week when crowds began booing him and his band. Culkin and his comedy band, The Pizza Underground, were performing at Nottingham’s Rock City as part of the Dot to Dot festival when the incident took place. He was alleged to have stormed off the stage after a group of audience members decided enough was enough and began throwing full pints of beer at the band.

Life as a former child star really can be tough, as Culkin's recent experiences prove.
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.

The former child star's band were drenched in beer after the crowd wouldn't stop throwing pints onto the stage, he eventually asked, "Why are you throwing those? I’d rather drink them."
Macaulay Culkin doesn't seem to have many fans in the U.K.
The former child actor and his comedy band, Pizza Underground, were paying to a rowdy audience in Nottingham, England, at the Dot to Dot Festival on Sunday (May 25th), but their performance was cut short.
Instead of receiving applause from the festivalgoers, Culkin and his band were heavily booed while getting pelted with beer, reports the Nottingham Post.
People often complain about the selection of movies on Netflix- we pick out some undiscovered gems.
Most films on the lower rungs of Netflix occupy that position for a single reason: they’re downright terrible. The acting is at best laughable and at worst cringe-worthy, whilst the script seems to be the product of baboons who possess a slightly above average intelligence. Elsewhere, the special effects are seemingly artefacts from design software that became obsolete once Windows 98 was released and the goofs and continuity errors come thick and fast. But amongst the schlock, the horribly ill-conceived box office flops and throwaway Chuck Norris vehicles are a selection of films hardly deserving of their placement amongst the vast expanse of Hollywood detritus. We’ve all sifted through the lower echelons of the vast Netflix database, ambivalently scrolling past Beverly Hills Ninja and Death Wish 4 and laughing at the hilarity of shoe-string budget horror C-movies such as Return Of The Killer Tomatoes and Strippers Vs Werewolves. Hiding amongst the most forgettable and artistically hollow filmic endeavours are some criminally overlooked works of cinematic art. Here is a selection of filmic diamonds who have unfairly found themselves confined to the Netflix motion picture ghetto:

Fallen angel Bieber has had a media nightmare of late, but which other drug-addled stars suffered the same fate?
If there was ever a time that Justin Bieber could be said to have hit rock bottom, it is surely now. Though the 19 year-old pop star may be swanning it on the slopes with his closest chums and peeing his initials into the snow, he leaves a media nightmare back at his Calabasas home where LA police are investigating not only an alleged egg-throwing incident but also the discovery of drugs and drugs paraphernalia found when raiding the star's home.

If you thought the idea of Macaulay Culkin fronting his own pizza-based Velvet Underground tribute act was weird, prepare to be weirded out even more
Few people could have seen Macaulay Culkin's pizza-themed Velvet Underground tribute act, the imaginatively called The Pizza Underground, coming when it emerged on Bandcamp last month, but even fewer people would have seen the latest revelation in this doughy drama coming either. It turns out The Pizza Underground aren't the only pizza-themed act functioning in New York, and the 'original' pizza-based band are angry as hell that someone stole their niche.
Pizza-themed bands are more popular in New York as Macaulay anticipated
Personal & the Pizzas formed in 2010 and thought their unique brand of dough-based was unequaled in the New York music scene until Culkin's band began to generate a buzz. The idea that another act were profiting from their formula irked frontman Personal so much that he has since threatened violence again the former child star and the rest of his band mates, going as far to even threatening to "kill" the band before suing them.
