Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin, after years and years of silence, has been much more visible for the past year or so. Beginning with his pizza-themed comedy rock band the Pizza Underground in 2014 to poking fun at his most famous role as Kevin McAllister to getting into a wrestling ring with former WWE star Hornswoggle, Culkin seems a lot more comfortable in his skin now that he’s hit his thirties. (Let that sink in for a moment. He’s 30-freaking-7.)
Recently, Culkin appeared on the WTF Podcast with Marc Maron and opened up on numerous topics including his friendship with the late Michael Jackson, why he gave up acting for almost a decade and detailed some of the mental and physical abuse he had do deal with from his father as a child.
Lately he’s been focusing on a podcast called Bunny Ears that he does with his friend, Matt Cohen. Which, as he mentioned very clearly, is one of the main reasons he sat down for a Reddit AMA on Tuesday.
Culkin ended up actually answering a LOT of questions, but here are some of the highlights bits I think you’ll find most interesting and entertaining.
Q: With all of the speculation about drug abuse, how bad did it actually get? What were your drugs of choice? Do you still use any drugs? Drink?
A: Yes, I consumed and imbibed in drugs in my life. Never as bad as people said. It’s not really a thing in my life right now. I’m an adult. I like to drink.
Q: What’s your biggest regret?
A: I don’t have a biggest regret but most of my regrets involve women.
Q: What’s your favorite memory of Michael Jackson?
A: When I almost crashed my golf cart into his and he called me “Applehead.”
Q: Are there any movies you passed on, or didn’t get the chance to make for what ever reason, that you wished you would have taken?
A: I was sent the script to Rushmore; I was still retired then. That’s a perfect movie.
Q: I always wanted to ask what’s your favorite athlete?
A: Chris Jericho. Cause he’s a boss.
Q: Do you get sick of people talking about Home Alone?
A: It’s a self-answering question.
Q: Would you ever do a remake of Home Alone? This is my fave movie of all time.
A: Only if it was set in the woods, ala Rambo.
Q: Why you aren’t on social media?
A: Why are you?
Q: What do you think about theory uncle Frank was behind criminal activity in Home Alone?
A: I feel the same way that I do about Kevin being Jigsaw.
Q: Which Home Alone is your favorite?
A: The first one was more fun because we didn’t know what we were walking into and it was a lot less flying all over the place; it was all in Chicago. Also it had 100% less Trump.
Q: I had a huge crush on you when I was 10. Did you also have a crush on me too?
A: Is your name Kelly Kapowski?
