PARTY MONSTER star Macaulay Culkin is so bitterly lonely, he is planning to start a relationship with notoriously reclusive writer JD SALINGER.

The 23-year-old actor hates leaving the safety of his home and is eager to discuss his solitary lifestyle with the controversial CATCHER IN THE RYE author.

Culkin confesses, "I can go for weeks without leaving my apartment. I actually thought about writing to Salinger. 'Hey, I don't like leaving my house, and neither do you - we're both loners, so let's chat.'"
