Macaulay Culkin, Adam Green, New York Magazine, Vulture

We haven't seen a whole lot of Macaulay Culkin these last several years, and it doesn't look like that's going to be changing anytime soon.

He pops up occasionally with his band, The Pizza Underground, and appeared as a traumatized version of his Home Alone character this past December in Jack Dishel's NSFW digital series DRYVRS. "I warned Jack that this was going to be a viral thing," Culkin, 35, tells Vulture in a new interview. "I was happy for it to bring attention to his show, but I don't think I'll do anything like that again." 

He has another role in pal Adam Green's movie Aladdin, along with Natasha Lyonne, Alia Shawkat, Penn Badgley and Zoë Kravitz. But for the most part, he's not interested in breaking back into the business. "I'm a man in his mid-30s who's essentially retired," he tells Vulture. "I kind of go where the wind takes me a little bit."

Culkin spends his time painting, writing, hosting friends and "whatevering," he says. Apparently, he does much of this while wearing rabbit ears (as pictured above). "Easter's the one time of the year when you can buy bunny ears," he says, "so you gotta stock up."

Good to see he hasn't lost his sparkle. Culkin's full interview with Vulture is featured in the Apr. 4 issue of New York Magazine. Tickets and information about Aladdin can be found at
