Nobody can cope with how well Macauley Culkin is looking these days

What cleanse is he on? *eyes emoji*

ONCE UPON A time, Macauley Culkin was the biggest star in the world, starring in box office smashes like Home Alone, Richie Rich, My Girl and Uncle Buck.

He was the undisputed King of the 1990s.

As is the case with all cute, precocious children, however, Culkin went through an awkward phase and retreated from the spotlight until 2003 when he starred in Party Monster.

Macauley, how you’ve grown!

He managed to stay out of the limelight for the better part of a decade until paparazzi photos surfaced in which he appeared rather gaunt, prompting speculation that he was battling drug addiction.

A year later, a video of him eating a cheese pizza went viral. In the video, the actor could be seen sporting a slightly more disheveled look.

(It was all part of his comedy rock band The Pizza Underground, a band that specialised in inserting references to pizza into Velvet Underground songs.)

Since then, he has been featured occasionally on his goddaughter Paris Jackson’s Instagram

This week, paparazzi photos surfaced of Macauley Culkin out and about with his girlfriend Brenda Song. And let’s just say he now looks like the picture of health.

And the entire internet is like, “Macauley, are you well? Because you’re looking well.”

Honestly, he should write a lifestyle book.



Happy for you, Mac :’)
