Macaulay Culkin Reveals He’s ‘Essentially Retired’ from Acting

“I kind of go where the wind takes me…”

In a rare interview with New York Magazine, Macaulay Culkin admitted he’s “essentially retired,” and gave a glimpse into his day to day life. After skyrocketing to fame at just 10-years-old with the release of Home Alone and all of its sequels, at the ripe age of 35, Culkin no longer has to work.

“I’m a man in his mid-30s who’s essentially retired,” he said. “I kind of go where the wind takes me a little bit.”

Even though Culkin no longer chooses to take on too many projects, he still finds it difficult to get away from his fame. The former child actor who lives in a loft in New York City admitted he’s taken to walking around the city at 2 am when it’s, “easy for me to go unnoticed.”

Despite the fact that Culkin has labeled himself as “essentially retired,” you can catch him on The Jim Gaffigan Show on TV Land on June 22nd.
