Macaulay Culkin says drug past is behind him as he and girlfriend try for baby
Macaulay Culkin has insisted he doesn't touch drugs anymore as he opened up about his hopes to start a family with girlfriend Brenda Song.
Former child star Macaulay endured a very public spiral in his teens after being propelled to fame through a string of hit films including Uncle Buck, Home Alone and Ritchie Ritch.
As he now approaches his milestone 40th birthday, Macaulay says after his wild child past he's now happiest having a quiet night in with partner of three years Brenda and their cats.
In a candid interview with Esquire, Maculay admits he 'played with fire' when it came to drug use but somehow got through his darkest days without checking into rehab.
He said: "I don’t touch the things. I do love them. They’re like old friends. But sometimes you outgrow your friends."
Macaulay then added: "I wouldn’t be the person I am today if I hadn’t had drugs in my life at some point or another. I had some illuminating experiences—but also it’s f*****’ stupid, too, you know? So besides the occasional muscle relaxer, no, I don’t do drugs recreationally."
The actor says he now gladly refers to himself as a 'homebody' and is trying for a baby with Brenda, who he fondly refers to as 'my lady.'
He told the mag the pair are trying for a baby, joking: "We practice a lot."
"We're figuring it out, making the timing work. Because nothing turns you on more than when your lady comes into the room and says, "Honey, I’m ovulating,'" says Macaulay – who famously 'divorced' his parents.
Brenda and Macaualy met in 2017 on the set of movie Changeland.
Gushing about her love, Brenda told Esquire: "People don’t realize how incredibly kind and loyal and sweet and smart he is.
"Truly what makes Mack so special is that he is so unapologetically Mack. He knows who he is, and he’s 100 percent okay with that. And that to me is an incredibly sexy quality. He’s worked really hard to be the person he is."
Reflecting on growing up in the public eye, Macaulay says: "'People assume that I’m crazy, or a kook, or damaged. Weird."
"It’s also like, Okay, everybody, stop acting so freaking shocked that I’m relatively well-adjusted," he adds.
The March issue of Esquire hits newsstands February 18.
