Macaulay Culkin looks healthy & loved up in Paris with new girlfriend: adorable?

Macaulay Culkin

These are new photos of Macaulay Culkin a few days ago in Paris. The pics are getting picked up by all sorts of news sites, so I figured why not cover them here too. As you can see, Macaulay in in the presence of a very pretty girl who is carrying a single rose bloom in a “vase” of bottled water. As further pics reveal, Macaulay picked up this rose for his new lady and decided a plastic bottle was better than nothing at all. Two points for practicality.

The unidentified girl first looks confused and then delighted. For his part, Macaulay seems healthy and happy, which is about all we can ask from this former child star. I know to most people, Mac will always be the kid from Home Alone, but to me, he’ll also always be the little boy that my kid brother wanted to be. Of course my brother also wanted to be Bart Simpson, but that’s beside the point. Macaulay endured the pressures of child stardom and then struggled to maintain his stardom as he transitioned into adulthood.

It wasn’t a pretty spectacle. Macaulay went nearly a decade between roles after appearing in 1994′s Richie Rich. By the time he surfaced in 2003′s Party Monster (where he portrayed the reprehensible killer Michael Alig in a somewhat sympathetic light), it was clear that Mac’s talent was eclipsed by his own very troubled soul. A few roles continued to trickle in, but Macaulay hasn’t been seen in anything since 2010. Then his personal life crumbled when he and Mila Kunis offially split up in 2011 after six years of dating. By 2012, he was photographed looking super skinny. Then came the Enquirer’s story of heroin and oxy addiction, which Mac denied, but then the Enquirer named their source.

With all of that said, Macaulay looks clean and like he’s gained some much needed weight. I have no idea how the guy is supporting himself at this point, but it’s clear that he can afford a rose (and a bottle of water) for his lady. Good for him. I hope he’s doing well.

    Glad he’s better and he looks happy. His new girlfriend resembles Mila quite a lot, oui?

  2. Tessa says:

    He looks healthy. All that matters really. I will always root for him. I waited in line at K-Mart to get my Home Alone VHS with my grandma and my little brother. Memories…

  3. Frida_K says:

    I hope he is better and continues to get more and more healthy…!

  4. Rhea says:

    Wow, he looks much better now. And happy. :) Good for him.

  5. eliza says:

    Glad he looks healthy and happy.

    Too bad he hates doing movies now days. His independent work has been awesome.

  6. turningviolet says:

    Ahh, this is just too sweet. The rose, the smile – you couldn’t fault to be at the very least infatuated. He looks the happiest and healthiest ever. Long may it continue for him.

  7. Cristina says:

    So happy for him! He looks really good here :)

  8. feebee says:

    Best he’s looked in a long time. His girl really looks like Mila. Not sure about the lady glasses.

  9. Norman Bates' Mother says:

    I’m glad to see him like this. He is probably still quiet rich and has no problem supporting himself. He works as a DJ at rich people’s parties, he is a part of some comedy group with Seth Green, which produces an animated comedy series Robot Chicken plus Home Alone (both movies) is so popular around the world that he must be getting some decent money from the royalties for those two movies alone. In my country – Poland, it’s so popular that when 4 or 5 years ago tv refused to add it to the Christmas schedule, people organized a boycott and a petition to “bring Kevin back” because it became some sort of a Christmas tradition. Since then, the tv channel which has the rights to those movies makes sure to broadcast them not only on Christmas but also on every other possible ocasion and it has the excellent ratings every time. I hope he will stay clean and healthy.

    I’m happy for him, he looks good, healthy.

  11. paola says:

    He deserves to be happy and she looks A LOT like Mila Kunis!

  12. Serena says:

    Seems like he`s doing ok, that makes me happy. he looks healty and hopefully he`s not doing drugs anymore. way to go mac!!

  13. kibbles says:

    I also remember reading that one of his sisters was killed in a tragic accident. I think she was drunk and got hit by a car in LA. He’s definitely been through a lot. I never expected Mila to stay with him and was surprised they were together for so long. Glad to see he’s found a non-celebrity girlfriend. And I’m sure he still has some money leftover from his childhood roles. Maybe he’s not Hollywood rich, but he probably has more money than the average middle-class American.

  14. Marigold says:

    It’s nice he’s doing well. He looks like a miniature Jax Teller here.

  15. Liz says:

    These photos left me smiley. I love both Babyshambles and The Libertines. However, the thought of Pete Doherty and Macauly living together was pretty horrifying.

    So glad to see him looking so adorably loved up. :-)

  16. Liz says:

    Mod Test… Not cool celebitchy. Not cool at all.

    These photos left me smiley. I love both Babyshambles and The Libertines. However, the thought of Pete Doherty and Macauly living together was pretty horrifying.

    So glad to see him looking so adorably loved up.

  17. Esmom says:

    Such a relief to see him looking healthier and happy. I was frightened for him for a while there.

    As for his income, I’d guess Home Alone is still netting him a decent chunk of change. It’s such a classic — and one of our household’s top 3 holiday movies (along with Elf and Charlie Brown Christmas).

  18. bowers says:

    He actually hasn’t been “adorable” since Home Alone–the first one.

  19. Kate says:

    From what I understand, he made A LOT of money as a child star and should be set for life if he didn’t blow it (or snort it … or inject it …). I’ve read that he’s still worth several million, but I don’t know if that’s true. If it is, I imagine that’s how he’s supporting himself.

  20. Mylene - Montreal says:

    She look so much like Mila Kunis

  21. Lucy says:

    At first I thought she was Mila! Wow, very pretty indeed. And great for him, I hope he stays this way, after all he’s been through.

  22. Jacqueline says:

    Can we talk about her OLD school Dooney bag?? And, yes, he looks healthier – but not all the way healthy.

  23. squirrelbait says:

    i love party monster, one of my favorite movies. good to see mac happy.

  24. mk says:

    He looks good, but it’s dangerous to ‘get better’ because of new love. Also, she’s kind of a Kunis doppelganger.

  25. truthful says:

    I’m happy for him, he looks good.

    what was the name of that movie he did about the “club kids murder?”
    that was deep.

    I’ve always liked him and wish him the best.

  26. Jeanette says:

    The mail said in Feb that he is still worth about 13 million, I think he dabbles in the art world a lot…

  27. RJ says:

    He’s supposedly still worth $15 million, I assume from residual royalties. What’s surprising to me is that he only made $100k for the first Home Alone movie! ($4.5 mill for the second). I think of Real Housewives and other reality trash making over $100k per episode for doing nothing than behaving like a narcissistic fool, and it makes you realize how much media has changed in 20 years.

  28. Dawn says:

    Wish him all the best. It can’t be easy to grow up after being one of the biggest kid stars out there.

  29. Michael says:

    This guy is loaded. Mila did an interview with Adam carolla about 5 years ago where she hinted that Mac was about 50 million dollars.

    And he isnt; living with Pete doherty. Pete denied that story during the summer. and the girl is Jordan Lane Price. Shes an actress on All my children. I don’t think it’s that serious.

  30. Maritza says:

    She does resemble Mila Kunis but I’m glad he has found happiness. Good for him!

  31. Blackbetty says:

    He certainly looks so much better. Home Alone is always on tv here, every year at Christmas.

  32. BackstageBitchy says:

    Can I just say that his clothes and boots are very chic? I actually love his whole ensemble. It’s very hipster manly for little Kevin! The beard and hair are a but much for such a tiny guy, but at least he is looking sober and healthy. She definitely resembles Mila..

  33. Mandy says:

    I’ll always have a soft spot for Macaulay. We’re the same age. I bet I’ve watched Home Alone a thousand times. I feel like I really did grow up with him!

  34. Alexa says:

    I LOVE HIM! And will ALWAYS find him ADORABLE! (Anyone remember him playing Karen’s new lawyer, “Soup” on Will & Grace?)
