Macaulay Culkin's Rep Says Actor Isn't On Heroin

Thanks to his small frame, Macaulay Culkin is regularly at the center of wild anorexia rumors, but earlier this week, the whispers suddenly turned far more serious. The National Enquirer, normally somewhere between the Boy Who Cried Wolf and Baron Munchausen on the believability scale, published a story claiming the former child star has been a wreck since Mila Kunis left. The outlet alleges he’s been hanging out with lowlifes, spending more than five grand a month on heroin and oxy and has only six months to live.

Not surprisingly, Culkin’s representative responded quickly and aggressively to the claims his client is knocking on death’s door. Here’s what he had to say, courtesy of The New York Daily News

“The report in the National Enquirer that Macaulay Culkin is addicted to heroin and assorted hallucinogenics is not only categorically without merit, but it is also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious,”

People always think actors who don’t work regularly are either unpopular or out of control. Culkin seems to be neither. He shows up every few years to take a role he finds interesting and spends the rest of his time deejaying and pursing other interests. Apart from his slender frame and the fact that his eight-year-relationship with Kunis ended two years ago, there’s really no evidence to indicate he’s a mess or even has reason to be a mess.

I choose to believe his representative over the Enquirer’s anonymous friend. If I’m given any reason to change my mind, I’ll let you know.
