God boys turn bad. Remember the kid star of the Home Alone series? That cute little boy who wove his way into your hearts with his impressive acting skills? Now, this is a recent photo taken of him following his struggle with drug abuse!
Culkin was once Hollywood’s biggest child star, commanding £6million a film by the time he starred in 1994’s Richie Rich. But the young actor soon hit troubled times and has weathered a number of personal tragedies, including the death of his sister Dakota in a car crash and of his half-sister Jennifer Adamson from a drug overdose.
His career then came to a halt after he was embroiled in a messy financial dispute between his parents Christopher Culkin and Patricia Brentup.
In 2004 he was arrested after police stopped a car in which he was a passenger and found more than a half-ounce of marijuana and several tablets of Xanax, a prescription medication used to treat depression and panic disorders.
He pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of possession of medication without a prescription and marijuana.
