It’s just come to our attention that former child star MACAULAY CULKIN turns 32 years old today. First introduced to audiences in such ’80s films as ROCKET GIBRALTER and UNCLE BUCK, he catapulted to superstardom as the star of such ’90s staples as ONLY THE LONELY, MY GIRL and, of course, the HOME ALONE franchise. Known for his close, personal friendship with MICHAEL JACKSON and his squabbles with controlling parental units, CULKIN became a favorite of the tabloids before slipping into relative obscurity. Now, only the occasional TV or film acting gig draws him out of semi-retirement.
Dipping into the vaults, we were reminded that we first sat down with the young star well over twenty years ago and during one of our many conversations, he talked about going on a shopping spree at a major toy store with The King Of Pop. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
