They say the camera adds 10 pounds, but there are exceptions to every rule.
A skinny, scruffy Macaulay Culkin resurfaced in N.Y. City yesterday and photos of him first posted on Entertainment Tonight have generated a lot of buzz online.
A rep for the former child star slams speculation that the star is struggling in any way, despite his dramatically thinner appearance. Check it out below:
The rep said: "Macaulay Culkin is in perfectly good health. For ET or any other media to speculate otherwise is thoughtless, irresponsible and destructive."
Explains a source of the shocking Macaulay Culkin photos: "He is just so thin naturally, so when he loses one pound it just looks like more."
A second insider cautions that Culkin has had "emotional issues" for years.
Culkin and Friend with Benefits actress Mila Kunis called off their low-key, eight-year relationship in late 2010. He has not personally addressed the photos.
