Macaulay Culkin's 15-year-old brother RORY was thrilled to land a role in new movie MEAN CREEK - because he was able to use bad language on film.

The teenage star, the youngest of seven in his acting family, is proud of the R-rated movie, which tackles such issues affecting young people as bullying, drinking and drugs.

He says, "It was cool because I didn't have to hold back from saying any bad words. There's nothing phony or fake in this movie. It shows show kids really think and what they actually do."
