Now apparently he is very badly addicted to cigarettes and is smoking up to 60 per day. From The National Enquirer:
The troubled 32-year-old actor is smoking an astonishing 60 cigarettes a day and putting his life at risk of deadly lung cancer!
“Mac has swapped out one deadly habit for another,” declared a concerned pal. “It’s a nightmare!”
Last August, The ENQUIRER revealed that the former child star was a heroin addict who also abused painkillers. Now, he’s said to be off heroin and trying to clean up his act, but he’s tragically relying on another life-threatening crutch.
“He’s put his nicotine addiction into overdrive,” revealed another friend. “Almost every time I see him, he has a cigarette dangling from his lips and is puffing furiously.”
His brand of choice is Marlboro.
I don’t smoke cigarettes, so to me, 60 a day sounds like a lot. Like an insane amount. But is this somewhat reasonable for someone addicted to smoking? I Googled and found that Marlboro cigarettes come in 20 or 25 per pack. So I guess, if this is true, he’s smoking around 3 packs a day. Is that…normal? I honestly have no idea.
But let’s get really weird. Apparently, Pete Doherty and Macaulay Culkin are now roommates. Um, what? So does that mean they’re living in London or NYC or F-cking Crazy Pants Nation? According to Now Magazine, it’s Paris.
Yeah, this seems like a great idea. I can picture it:
Macaulay Culkin: Pete, did you buy food?
Pete Doherty: No.
Macaulay Culkin: Okay. I’ll get groceries tomorrow.

“MACAULAY CULKIN AND PETE DOHERTY FOUND DEAD OF STARVATION.”

Macaulay Culkin slithers in and out of the spotlight, mostly for not being dead and for looking either really ill or surprisingly hot. Now he’s being talked about for (allegedly) trying to hookup with his ex, Mila Kunis, despite the fact that she’s dating Ashton Kutcher. The National Enquirer says that this is what happened:
“Mac made a play for Mila, but she blew him off,” revealed an insider. “After she spurned his advances, he went berserk.”
The former “Home Alone” star, 32, reached out to the “Ted” cutie, 29, while they were both in England recently, sources say.
“Mac was desperate to hook hook up with Mila, and he saw this as his big chance,” explained the insider.
Mila was in England making a movie called “Jupiter Ascending,” and Ashton had yet to join her. “Mac thought it was a great opportunity until Mila deep-sixed the idea,” continued the insider. “Now Mac’s friends fear that he’s so devastated he could wind up in another life-or-death situation.”
Mila’s brush-off boiled over when Culkin left a nightclub in Brighton, a seaside town in southeast England, in the early hours of April 16.
Reports say he lunged at a photographer as he walked over to a van, screaming at the shutterbug and telling him to “go to hell.”
The “Richie Rich” star was in England to join the tour of his buddy Adam Green and his band “The Moldy Peaches.” But he hardly looked like a star. During a stop in east London, one fellow clubgoer actually thought Culkin was homeless.
“We chatted for about five minutes and he said he was here visiting friends,” recalled student Marley Spindler, who met Culkin outside the Village Underground, a multipurpose events warehouse for concerts and nightclubs.
“He was vacant, speaking very quietly and mellow. He looked spaced out. I didn’t recognize him at first. I thought he was some homeless guy scrounging a smoke.”
Dude if Mila Kunis broke up with me I’d be depressed too.
How long do you think it will be before we have a Macaulay Culkin reality TV show? It’s pretty well known that he needs the cash. I’d watch. Unless it got too sad. It might be too sad.

The last time we caught up with Macaulay Culkin, he was looking a little, shall we say… not well. While he vaguely cleaned up his act earlier this year, he’s now slid a bit downhill again – not with the drugs, but with that Hansel from Zoolander hair. I kid!
In any case, Kevin McAllister was out and about in Paris over Easter weekend and even visited a fair with a few friends, where he smoked some cigarettes, slid down a giant slide and took a note from Corey Hart‘s diary and wore a pair of red sunglasses, despite it being pitch black outside. Don’t worry, M – I’m not mad at you!
Some more photos of Macaulay’s outing in Paris below…

Can I say something without freaking most of you guys out? Because I’d really like to say this: Macaulay Culkin is looking hot these days. I mean, completely trying to forget about the fact that he used to be Kevin McAllister, Macaulay Culkin is almost … yummy. There—I said it. Macaulay Culkin is f-cking hot these days, and it definitely helps that he doesn’t look like the methed-out homeless man who happened to be Matthew McConaughey’s stand-in on the set of ‘The Dallas Buyer’s Club’.
No, I love the hair, I love the lack of furry facial hair, and I love the fact that you can’t even see his red, bloodshot eyes because of the oversize sunglasses. It’s all pretty great, and that’s coming from the pure, sincere place that I don’t often show to the world.
Is he clean? Is he eating? Did he give up the booze? I don’t know on any counts, but what I do know is that I’d totally hit that. … At least for now, anyway.

… But then if you knew some of the things that allegedly happened with Kit Culkin (Macaulay‘s father) and his family, you might scream “Michael Lohan!” and stop reading this post altogether, because Kit is, like, the original Michael Lohan.
According to sources, Kit has made a statement to the public along the lines of … well, this:
“I hope that he has the right people looking after him.”
Kit and his wife later claimed to be worried that Macaulay was going to die soon. Both feel that Macaulay is “… dying of some disease or heavily into drugs,” and Macaulays’ mother, Patricia, claims that Kit is too distraught to even talk about it:
“Oh, gosh. Kit has seen the photo[s]. But he can’t talk about it. He just can’t, because it hurts him too much. Of course he’s worried, he’s incredibly concerned. When I saw the photos I thought, ‘Oh no, this is not good. Either he’s dying of some disease or he’s heavily into drugs’.”
Me, though? I’m going to let you draw your own conclusions, because here’s a few recent photos that TMZ snapped of M in New York City, and he’s looking … well, he shaved that weird, emaciating beard that he had, and he’s looking kind of hot, actually:
Am I right?
I guess all I can say to Kit and wife would be “Shut up, Lohans.”

Here is the most recent photo available of Macaulay Culkin, alleged heroin addict with six months to live. The photo was taken on Friday while he was headed down to Lindsay‘s favorite place on earth, Chateau Marmont. And doesn’t he just look so much better?
That’s what people are saying. Really, people are saying that Macaulay looks way better here than he did the last time we saw him. And I’m sorry, but no, no he does not. Just because this photo was taken from a greater distance than the last one, and just because he’s wearing sunglasses so we can’t see his creepy eyes does not mean that he’s looking better. He still looks like he’s wasting away, he still looks too pale to be healthy (even for Macaulay Culkin), but the thing that really gives it away? You’ll have to look very closely to see it, except you won’t, because he’s clutching his stomach and he looks like he’s about to vomit everywhere and/or pass out and/or literally cough up a lung. I think that’s the real hint that no, he doesn’t look so much better actually.
So where do you guys stand now? Does this guy look like a heroin addict to you? Or could Macaulay be dry heaving in this picture because he just saw Lindsay Lohan?
