Is this Disney star behind Macaulay Culkin's unbelievable transformation?

Macauly's goddaughter Paris Jackson and friend Seth Green were also spotted with the young couple.

It's been nearly three decades since Home Alone was released, but to this date, most people can picture the face of a young Macaulay Culkin screaming with his adorable face between his palms. He was the definition of a child star for most of us. 


Unfortunately, though, after getting tangled up in the charges of child molestation against singer Michael Jackson, Macaulay has more or less stayed away from the limelight. And, when he was spotted by the paparazzi, he looked very sickly.

Macaulay and actress Mila Kunis were in a long-term relationship for eight years from 2002 to 2010. When things ended—reportedly, amicably—he was allegedly frequenting sex clubs in Europe to deal with the breakup blues.

Shortly after this, fans saw an alarmingly pale Macaulay making the rounds on internet. Speculations ensued, with journalists asking what the reason behind this new look was. "Is it AIDS? Heroin? Meth? A combo of all three?"

In 2012, it was even reported that he had gotten dangerously close to death due to an addiction to prescription drugs and heroin. He had allegedly turned his "Manhattan apartment into a drug den." His estranged father, Kit Culkin, even publicly urged Macaulay to seek help for the addictions.

Later, Macaulay, who gave an interview to the Guardian after years of turning down requests for the same, clarified that these reports were completely untrue. He said, "I was not pounding six grand of heroin every month or whatever. The thing that bugged me was tabloids wrapping it all in this weird guise of concern. No, you’re trying to shift papers.”

Drugs or not, you have to admit the former child star looked nothing short of gaunt, nearly transparent. However, the most recent photos of Macaulay are perfect examples of his immense transformation. And we wonder if lady love has some part in it.

He will be seen playing a lead role in after a long time in Seth Green's comedy-drama Changeland, which also stars his current girlfriend Brenda Song.

For those unfamiliar, Brenda is a former child star herself, having starred as the rich and ditzy London Tipton in the Disney Channel series The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.   


Brenda and Macaulay were spotted on Wednesday, strolling along the streets of Paris, the city of love. In some of the photos that have surfaced online, the couple was also joined by Seth and his wife Claire Grant. Others show Macaulay's goddaughter and Michael Jackson's daughter Paris spending time with Brenda and Macaulay, who have been in Paris since Thanksgiving.
