Publicist: 'Macaulay Culkin not ill, despite photos'

Macaulay Culkin's publicist has fired back at press reports suggesting the Home Alone star is seriously ill following the publication of photos in which the actor appears gaunt and frail.

The snaps appeared on ETonline.com on Thursday (09Feb12) and prompted an immediate response from the former child star's rep.

Calling any suggestion that his client is ill "reckless, thoughtless and irresponsible", the publicist stated that Macaulay Culkin is "in perfectly good health".

He added, "We are asking them (ET and news show Entertainment Tonight) to discontinue the rumors."
