Macaulay Culkin Defends Friendship with Michael Jackson, Despite 22 Year Age Gap

Macaulay Culkin made an appearance on Michael Rosenbaum‘s Inside of You podcast and discussed his friendship with the late Michael Jackson, which started when he was 10 and Michael was 32.

“He reached out to me because a lot of things were happening big and fast with me. And I think…yes, I think he identified with that. I mean, at the end of the day, it’s almost easy to try say it was ‘weird’ or whatever, but it wasn’t, because it made sense. Like, we were legitimate…At the end of the day, we were friends—in the most simple [way]. It’s one of my friendships that people question, only because of the fact that he was the most famous person in the world,” Macaulay said about his friendship with the King of Pop, despite their 22 year age difference.

He continued, “For me, it’s so normal and mundane. I know it’s a big deal to everybody else, but it was a normal friendship.”

“I really didn’t actually give a s–t about famous people. I was thoroughly unimpressed by them. So, when I first met him, I was just like, ‘OK, cool. You’re just that guy. Oh, that guy who sings songs? Cool. I sing songs in school. Great,’” Macaulay added. “So the fact that [I was] somebody who was kind of just treating him like a normal person…Yeah. It was that simple.”

“He was f–king awesome. He was hilarious. He was sweet. People don’t know how funny he f–king was!” he added.

Busy Philipps Has a 'Freaks & Geeks' Reunion with Linda Cardellini!

Busy Philipps reunites with her former Freaks and Geeks co-star Linda Cardellini during an episode of Busy Tonight, which aired on Tuesday night (January 15).

Linda, who currently stars in the movie Greek Book, said that people come up to her “all the time” and want to talk about the show.

“We were losers, remember? We were terrible losers. We got cancelled. Nobody wanted to watch the show…We all like struggled…But now people see it all the time,” she said. “It’s streaming and it didn’t die. Back then when shows died, they really died. They didn’t show up in other places so the idea that it would show up anywhere ever again, didn’t really occur to us.”

“Look at us. We’ve come a long way from sitting on the floor of the trailer. Now you’ve got a talk show and I get a pretty dress,” Linda added.
