Macaulay Culkin Steps Out In Public - People Shocked By His Appearance

Macaulay Culkin was made famous by his role as the rambunctious Kevin McCallister in 1990's classic Christmas flick 'Home Alone'. At the tender age of ten, Culkin shot to international superstardom at a rapid pace, but fame was not particularly kind to the child star.

There were some years during which his fans really worried about him, but he recently stepped out with a fellow child star looking good.

Culkin was spotted at Craigs, a celebrity hot spot in Los Angeles, California, and then later at a convenience store where he purchased some packs of cigarettes. After a long period of looking gaunt and unkempt, it was refreshing to see him looking clean-cut.

Culkin has cut his blonde locks and shaved the stubble. He was dressed comfortably in a pair of jeans with a t-shirt and a blue button-down denim shirt left open.

Fellow child star Brenda Song was with Culkin, and the two left Craigs together. No word on the relationship status of Culkin, 27 and Song, 29, but the two were looking good. Song was looking stunning in black leather shorts, a gray sweater and a pair of black heels.

Song, a Disney alum, is best known for her role in 'The Suite Life of Zack and Cody,' and its spin-off series, 'The Suite Life on Deck'.

Culkin has previously been romantically linked to Mila Kunis, who he dated for eight years. His relationship with Kunis lasted twice as long as his marriage to Rachel Miner, who he wed in 1998 and divorced in 2002.

This was the first time Culkin was spotted out since the death of his 'Home Alone' on-screen dad, John Heard, who passed away last week at the age of 72.

After 'Home Alone', Culkin went on to star in the sequel and several other films, including 'My Girl' with Anna Chlumsky, 'The Good Son' with Elijah Wood and 'The Pagemaster' with Christopher Lloyd, Patrick Stewart and Whoopi Goldberg. At the age of 14, three of his films won him Golden Raspberry awards for Worst Actor, and the films flopped at the box office.

Fans wanted Culkin to remain the cute little kid he was in 'Home Alone' and the public seemed unforgiving that the actor was growing up.

At the same time Culkin struggled to transition from child to teen actor, his family life spiraled out of control. His parents split up and there was a nasty legal battle for custody of the kids, and Culkin's fortune. In 1996, Culkin said he wouldn't be accepting any more acting roles until the dispute was finished.

For years after that, the adorable former child star looked uphappy, often unshaven, his hair long and clothing in disarray. Culkin appeared to have lost a great deal of weight and dodged the media, and rumors swirled that he was struggling with drug addiction.

Culkin has denied that things were as bad as the tabloid headlines made them out to be, but whatever he was going through, it looks as though he’s gotten his act back together.
