Macaulay Culkin rose to fame quickly in movies like The Good Son and Home Alone. He was mischievous and cute, and everyone loved him. Macaulay Culkin found out that his own father was mismanaging his fortune in 1995, and it was wasting away.
He went to court against his parents who fought for control over his money. That alone would do a lot of damage to a child. He began spiraling out of control and got involved in drugs.
He was arrested because he had half an ounce of pot on him in 2004. The press had no problem tearing him apart even though smoking weed, especially these days, isn’t that big of a deal.
People had a hard time separating the cute little boy from the man who was caught using drugs. His career took quite the hit, and we didn’t see Macaulay Culkin for years. These days, he’s performing with his cover band called Velvet Underground. Who knows if he’ll ever come back to the big screen.
