Macaulay Culkin mistaken for homeless man

Former child star Macaulay Culkin‘s behavior has been causing concern lately. He’s currently in the U.K. performing and traveling with his friend, musician Adam Green. Last week, he was spotted wandering the London streets at around 2:30 a.m. by a student named Marley Spindler, who mistook him for a homeless man. She said: ”We chatted for about five minutes and he said he was in London seeing friends, though he was vacant, speaking very quietly and mellow. I didn’t know who he was at first – I thought it was some homeless guy who was scrounging a smoke. I’m no expert, but he didn’t seem all there.” On Tuesday, he lunged violently at a paparazzo while leaving a nightclub in Brighton, telling the photographer to go to hell. Fans and friends of the actor have been concerned about his health lately. He was arrested for possession of drugs in 2004 and has been deflecting drug use rumors for the last few years. A concerned friend, who saw a recent photo of Macaulay Culkin, told gossip site Radaronline, “Mac definitely looks like he pulled an all-nighter – that’s not a good sign.” Culkin’s recent weight gain – slight as it was – had lightened speculation about his health but his recent actions are sure to start the rumor mill again. ~Cassie Jasinski

    Is that paint spatter all over his jeans?

    I’ve seen pictures from before and this isn’t news to me. He’s looked like a bum for quite some time

    This does not look good – and I don’t anticipate that he will pull a Robert Downey Jr. and turn it all around.

    There is nothing about being a child actor that prepares you for a normal adulthood. Children have to be children in order to grow up normally, not small adults who work in all adult environments to support their parents.

    It’s Mila’s fault. 🙂

    How do these actors survive the constant intrusion into their lives? Leave the guy alone.

    Maybe it’s time for his “friend” to voice his concerns to Mac’s face rather than in the tabloids.

    Can we just leave him, alone, please? Really, no Kardashians to pick on at the moment? Eff-word, let him be!

    I hope he finds the help he needs before it’s too late.

    I agree with Nick. I loved Home Alone, he could potentially have been a great actor – yes?
