ET has an exclusive photo of former child star Macaulay Culkin, 31, looking pretty gaunt and drinking a Red Bull in NYC somewhere. Maybe he weighed more in Home Alone, but come on, let’s not jump to any conclusions. Stars lose crazy amounts of weight all the damn time. When Christian Bale lost 300 pounds for The Machinist and then gained 400 pounds of muscle for Batman Begins, no one was like, “Hurr durr, I bet he’s got a tapeworm!” Or “Hurr durr, I bet he’s sad over his breakup with Mila Kunis!” (We would be sad too if it suddenly ended with Mila Kunis.)
The most logical explanation is that Culkin is filming the next season of Dancing With the Stars. And honestly, we should be more concerned with his goatee than his weight.
Culkin is fine, worriers. “Macaulay Culkin is in perfectly good health,” his rep insisted after the photos surfaced. “For Entertainment Tonight — or any other media outlet — to speculate otherwise is reckless, irresponsible and destructive. We implore them to discontinue the rumor.”
