Macaulay Culkin turns his New York apartment into a painting studio
Macaulay Culkin was quite the walking canvas on Thursday – as he wandered around New York in jeans slathered in paint.
The actor-turned-artist looked a little dazed as he ambled around with his head down, before jumping into a cab.
Macaulay Culkin, 32, teamed his look with a leather jacket and dirty boots, complete with shades.
He has recently turned his $2 million New York apartment into a painting studio – which might explain the state of his jeans.
Macaulay Culkin recently released a video promoting new art exhibition Leisure Inferno, which runs from September 13 to December 15 at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge gallery.
The former star, who is worth a reported $15 million, created Three Men and a Baby (3MB), an art collective with friends Adam Green and Toby Goodshank.
Explaining how he turned his home into a painting studio, Macaulay Culkin said in the video: “We cleared out everything, laid down plastic and went a little nuts at the art supply store.”
As for the group’s shared vision for their first Greenwich Village gallery show, Macaulay Culkin said: “The sillier and funner, the better.”
Back in February – the same month the trio formed – many speculated the former child star had a drug habit or a terrible illness when he stepped out sipping a Red Bull looking emaciated.
Macaulay Culkin’s last acting job was on the TV series Kings back in 2009 and his last film was the dark comedy Sex and Breakfast back in 2007.
At the height of his fame he was regarded as the most successful child actor since Shirley Temple.
Macaulay Culkin once quipped: “I’d made enough money by the time I was 12 to never have to work again.”
