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.
