Macaulay Culkin hasn’t been in the public eye much since last year, when he was publicly accused of suffering from a debilitating drug habit. Culkin’s reps vehemently denied the rumors at the time, but Culkin only spurred the rumors on by appearing disheveled and unwell. According to the rep, the rumors were “not only categorically without merit, but…also impossibly and ridiculously fictitious. We beseech the responsible media to consider the source and its reputation and to please not perpetuate this destructive and insulting story by pursuing it any further.”
This weekend, however, he showed up at the New York Comic Con looking healthy and in good spirits, and when asked by a fan where he’s been hiding since starring in 2004’s “Saved!”, he replied cheekily, “Hiding under a rock somewhere.”
Culkin appeared at the Con with friends Breckin Meyer, Seth Green, and Matthew Senreich on the “Robot Chicken” panel and got silly with the boys, donning a pair of furry ears for the session. The 33-year old actor has been a frequent voice contributor on the Cartoon Network show for several years, often working alongside ex Mila Kunis.
At the Con, Seth Green–who is also a former child actor–spoke up on Culkin’s behalf, saying, “The best thing about Mac is that he had a better career by the time he was 14 than most of us have in our whole lives. If he spends four years, six years, not doing anything, he’ll still be more relevant than anyone here.”
