There have been lots of rumors floating around about Macaulay Culkin since he gave up acting as a young man and became legally emancipated from his parents at 14 since they were trying to jack his $17 million.
People have speculated that he's depressed, on tons of heroin and partying all the time, and his reclusiveness has made him a choice target for paparazzos hoping to break a big story about the Home Alone kid.
But as Macaulay revealed in an interview with the Guardian's Rhik Samadder, his first real interview in over ten years, that kid is all grown up and loving his life.
Macaulay's been digging into passion projects such as his band The Pizza Underground, keeping a low profile in Paris so he'll be left alone by the media, and staying out of the papers by choice.
Macaulay claims he was never really hooked on drugs, all just rumors started as a response to his unconventional lifestyle, and says he'd rather stay in the shadows and be happy than return to the spotlight and be miserable.
Sounds like Macaulay Culkin is going to be all right, which is more than some former child stars can say.
