What Happened to Macaulay Culkin?

Macaulay Culkin captured hearts of millions as the cute kid in Home Alone, but the 31-year-old actor is now striking fear into the hearts of his fans with his startling weight loss. In images obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Culkin was snapped looking pale and gaunt in New York City when he stopped to sign autographs for fans, while drinking the energy drink Red Bull. Sporting sunken cheeks, scraggly hair, pale skin and glazed eyes, he was barely recognizable as the cherubic kid who had fought off bungling burglars in the 1992 comedy classic. But what happened to him? Main reason – life, difficult life. His parents divorced and divided their property, both sisters died (Dakota – in a car accident, Jennifer Adamson – of a drug overdose), his marriage with Rachel Miner and romance with Mila Kunis were unsuccessful. So all these events broke him.
