Macaulay Culkin facts: Actor’s age, wife, kids, parents, siblings and net worth revealed

Macaulay Culkin

Macaulay Culkin born Macaulay Carson Culkin is an American actor and musician.

Performing in stage productions and acting since his infant years, Macaulay Culkin stood out as the intelligent, amiable child in ‘Rocket Gibraltar’, ‘Uncle Buck’ and the successful ‘Home Alone’ films.

Although he enjoyed widespread acclaim and success as a boy, his career as an adult was not that fruitful. He puttered with a variety of lucrative, hollow projects, which effectively put him out of showbiz.

Consequently, he never really recaptured the same success that he did as a child. This child prodigy earned the respect of pop-star Michael Jackson, who went on to become his close friend and confidante.

After a brief period of idleness, he re-entered the world of entertainment once again with ‘Party Monster’ and ‘Saved’ but both failed to leave his footprints in the world of entertainment.

There have, however, been a number of personal snares in his life, including his arrest for the possession of controlled substance and being at the epicenter of Jackson’s scandalous molestation trial.
