I write a good amount. I've been gathering up a backlog of stuff and maybe I'll do something with it someday, but I don't want to talk about it just yet because that would jinx it.— Macaulay Culkin
The most contentment Macaulay Culkin quotes that are new and everybody is talking about
Most of the offers I get from Hollywood are for teen comedies.
My manager thinks I'm crazy for turning down all that money, but I'm very picky.
I don't even get an allowance.
I am a collection of thoughts and memories and likes and dislikes.
I am the things that have happened to me and the sum of everything I've ever done. I am the clothes I wear on my back. I am every place and every person and every object I have ever come across. I am a bag of bones stuck to a very large rock spinning a thousand miles an hour.
I'm doing naughty things, I'm drinking too much, I'm going to clubs.
It really didn't matter to me, other than the fact that some parents wouldn't let their kids hang out with me.
My father was overbearing. Very controlling. He was always the way he is, even before my success. He was not always a good person. He'd play mind games to make sure I knew my place. I don't see him, which is unfortunate. But I don't have any desire to see him. I vaguely know where he is, and I don't want to know.
I could have gone the route of a lot of these former child actors, but I didn't want that for myself. Like I said, when I was 14 years old, I decided to quit. I didn't ever want to do it again.
I did a radio interview for a station in Connecticut or something, and it was the worst interview ever. It was all yes and no answers.
I did 14 movies in six years, I had a cartoon TV show, and I don't want to do that again. I just want to make unique pieces of art. That's why I quit everything when I was 14 and sat around for eight years before I did another movie.
I went to high school, which was a good thing because I hadn't interacted with many people my age, and I didn't really have friends. I had a million acquaintances and no friends.
I'm not one of those actors who needs the media spotlight all the time to feel gratified. I'm happy to do one project a year and take the rest of the year off as long as that project is special.
It's about finding unique, one-of-a-kind films that I would want to see myself.
I think Party Monster is one of those.
I do have a family, and I do have friends, and so-called friends, and acquaintances, and many other people I see only around Christmas time. Maybe they could vouch for me. Maybe they could testify to my existence and save a part of me that thinks I'm no better than a bag of potato chips.
I enjoy my life. I think I have a very good life. And I think I'm very satisfied with the direction of my career and just my lifestyle and everything like that. So I wouldn't change a single thing.
Because of what I did when I was 10 years old, I'm not living from paycheck to paycheck, and I can do things because I want to do them.
I have no control over people's perceptions of me at all and that's one of the things I decided very early on is that I can't control the way other people think of me. All I can do, especially when it comes to my career is go out there and do cool unique kinds of things.
He was so excited. He cut out pictures of these landscapes and neighborhoods and kind of really tried to give you a feel of the movie. It was kind of cute but at the same time it really showed his enthusiasm for it.
Michael Jackson and I talk all the time.
I think we understand each other in a way that most people can't understand either of us.
People still recognize me all the time on the street.
The first thing they say when they stop me is, "Where have you been?" The second comment they make is always, "Oh, you've grown up."
The funny thing is, I'm not really a big reader, not a big fan of books in the first place.
I don't mind if somebody comes up to me and shakes my hand, but if I'm in the middle of a restaurant and somebody asks me for a picture, I can be a jerk and say no, or I can say yes and draw more attention to myself, which is exactly the opposite of what I want.
People do bad things in their lives. And those sort of things are forgivable. That's half the point of having confession in church - you need to be able to fess up to what you've done.
It's a place where I could do something on a weekly basis and see if I like it.
They put it on the page because it sounded good or it looked good or they read it in a book somewhere that this is how you structure a script or something, and they just don't get it. It's surprising.
