Macaulay Culkin Says He Almost Worked As A WWE Writer
On today's installment of Hollywood existing as nothing more than a giant game of Mad Libs, it seems child-actor turned Velvet Underground cover band member Macaulay Culkin almost professionally followed in the footsteps of his beloved Home Alone character, conjuring elaborate ways to injure themselves – well, as a writer for the WWE.
Earlier this week, Culkin stopped by Freddie Prinz Jr.'s wrestling podcast Wrestling with Freddie, opening up about being a wrestling fan, his interactions with the wrestling organization, and of course, fatherhood, after welcoming his first child last year with his wife, actress and former Disney Channel icon Brenda Song. Although Culkin dipped his toes into the world of pro wrestling, making a cameo on a Home Alone-themed WWE Raw segment back in 2009, it seems the star really wanted to get more involved, explaining that he regrets not serving as a writer before becoming a dad.
"Oh man, there were times when I wanted to, like kind of just find six months of my life at the very least just to kinda go in there and stuff," Culkin said, adding that he does “kind of regret” not doing so. “Now that I’m a dad I barely have time to pee at this point, you know what I mean? I just never got around to it, there was always something,” he continued.
So folks, here's to Culkin – as his iconic character Kevin McAllister once (probably) said “I can't be a wimp. I'm a WWE Writer.”
