He may no longer be as famous as he was back in the '90s when he starred as Kevin McAllister in the Home Alone films, but Macaulay Culkin is still making headlines.

At 37 years old, the former child star is making a comeback of sorts. In addition to appearing in a number of films and television shows, including performing voice work for the sketch comedy Robot Chicken, Culkin also plays in a band called The Pizza Underground, and recently launched a podcast called Bunny Ears.

Hello Giggles

He has been promoting his new project by giving interviews, and to everyone's surprise, the notoriously private star has been revealing some intimate details during these chats.

During a recent appearance on Marc Maron's WTF Podcast, he discussed his relationship with his late "best friend" Michael Jackson, his god-daughter Paris, as well as his abusive father, Kit.

Now, just a few days after that discussion, Culkin took to Reddit to participate in an Ask Me Anything (AMA) session. He answered questions about everything, from Home Alone to his alleged addiction.

Here are 11 things we learned about Culkin during his candid Q&A session:

1. The first Home Alone is his favorite


Culkin explained that the first Christmas movie was "more fun" than the sequel because "We didn't know what we were walking into and it was a lot less flying all over the place; it was all in Chicago."

He also got a bit political when he added, "Also it had 100 [percent] less Trump."

2. He would like to see a remake

The former child star didn't confirm whether or not he'd star in the remake, but he did say that he supports the idea. However, he does have one condition: "Only if it was set in the woods, à la Rambo."

3.  He wasn't addicted to drugs

NY Daily News

When a user asked about his alleged substance abuse, Culkin admitted that it was never as serious as the media made it out to be.

“Yes, I consumed and imbibed in drugs in my life," he said. "Never as bad as people said. It's not really a thing in my life right now. I'm an adult. I like to drink.”

There's a lot more he reveals about himself...

The 'Dawson's Creek' Cast Reunited And It'll Make You Wish You Could Go Back To Capeside

Dawson's Creek was one of the most iconic shows on television in the 90s. It was basically all of our first glimpses of what teen drama looked like, and even though our lives were nothing like those of Capeside, we sure felt like we were a part of it. Personally, I was always a fan of Joey Potter. She had such an interesting backstory and I felt really bad that she lost her mother. I was always on Team Pacey too, so the fact that they ended up together was everything we wanted. Dawson's career obviously turned out okay and


Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it
