I think we’ve all got a soft spot for Macaulay Culkin, right? The lovable little scamp who entertained millions as Kevin McCallister in “Home Alone” has been in the spotlight for most of his life, and we’ve followed along as he went from child star to hot mess. But now, we are here to tell you that Mac is BACK, and he’s giving us palpitations. Seriously though, where did Mr. Culkin come from and can he stay for a bit?

Macaulay Culkin was spotted out and about in Los Angeles a few days ago, looking like some kind of hot af college professor who hits the gym in between lectures. He’s been MIA for a while, and in that time, seems to have really made some positive changes in his life. AND THEY SHOW.

I would stay home alone with this Macaulay, if you catch my drift.

The last time many of us saw Macaulay, he was looking rough. His pale, gaunt appearance sparked rumors of rampant drug use. Then there was the death hoax, which every celebrity seems to fall victim to at least once. The rumors persisted so much that he eventually had to give an interview to address them. He denied the drug use, and lamented the predatory paparazzi culture in L.A. Since then, he’s kept a pretty low-key profile. That is, until he popped up looking all kinds of fine.

It’s amazing what a little weight, a good haircut, and some tight-ass jeans can do for a guy.

People on Twitter were thirsty for Macaulay Culkin 3.0. But mostly, they were happy to see him looking so healthy. We worry about little Kevin, ok?!

Seriously though, it’s always nice to see a child star looking like they have their shit together. Too often, we read the stories that end in tragedy. He hope Macaulay is doing well, and that this means he has some new projects on the horizon. It’s easy to forget, but he’s a really talented actor, and we’d love nothing more to watch his fine ass on the big screen. Good on you, Mac!
