Home Alone Star Grows Up!

Where has the time gone? In what may come as a surprise to those who watched him grow up, former child actor Macaulay Culkin turned 30 on August 26.

Macaulay Culkin

It seems like just yesterday we were marveling at adorable Macaulay Culkin as he played Kevin McCallister, the precocious 9-year-old left by his family to fend for himself, in 1990's Home Alone. If that cute, yet devious troublemaker is 30, how old does that make the rest of us? Anyone else want to plead the fifth?

Sure, we've seen him mature over the years as he went on to star in more adult-themed films including Party Monster, Sex and Breakfast and Saved!, and he even began and ended a marriage by the time he was 22, but it doesn't seem possible the boy we watched grow up is now three decades old.

Macaulay Culkin is in fact 30 though and has kept a low profile over the years. No longer tabloid fodder for his issues with his controlling father, what Michael Jackson may or may not have done to him, or what drug offense he got busted for, Culkin has been in a seemingly stable long-term relationship with former That 70's Show star Mila Kunis and, one can only assume, living a quiet life.

He may not look 30, but his many years of dealing with the ups and downs of Hollywood and all that comes with it probably make him older than his years.

Michael Jackson were just very good friends. They both had controlling fathers and were child stars, so they understood each other. Culkin said under oath, that Michael Jackson never touched him. Mr. Jackson was found innocent of all the charges against him, even though the DA, Tom Sneddon tried his best to find any shred of evidence to prove him guilty. The FBI followed Mr. Jackson and found NOTHING! It is time for those of you who continue to throw mud at Mr. Jackson, to educate yourself and let go of the lies you have accepted as gospel. Do your homework before you cast stones a man who wanted nothing more than to help children all over the world. He gave all of his personal profits from two of his world tours to chldren's charities. In every city he performed, he visited hospitals and orphanges and hospitals to take toys to chldren and to offer financial assistance to improve their living conditions. He paid all the medical expenses for a child who needed a liver transplant or he would die. He paid for children's funerals that had been killed by abuse. This is not a man who would EVER hurt a child. Read the new book by Rabbi Shmuely Boteach, "Honoring the Child Spirit" and you will learn about the true heart of Michael Jackson.

I have to believe that Culkin got messed up when he started hanging around MICHAEL JACKSON and became one of Jackson's "kids." Culkin's nut bag father did not help me out either by demanding outrageous fees for offered roles. Culkin was a flash in the pan and now is nothing more than one more has been in the Hall of Fame of failed child actors.

I can't believe he's 30! This makes me feel even older. Macaulay Culkin still has a baby face, though.
