Macauley Culkin shades Donald Trump over Home Alone 2 role

Macaulay Culkin threw some major shade Donald Trump’s way on Monday.

During a REDDIT AMA, the former child star, who’s now 37, answered a series of questions posed to him by fans during the interactive session.

Asked about the role that made him a household name, Culkin didn’t pull any punches.

He said that the 1990 original was ‘more fun’ not least because it ‘had 100 percent less Trump.’

The first Home Alone movie was shot completely in Chicago while Home Alone 2: Lost In New York included filming in the Big Apple. 

And that’s how Trump ended up with a brief on-screen appearance.

But Culkin played down the scene he shared with the now U.S. President.

‘I mean, the guy made like a half a second cameo,’ he said. ‘I wouldn’t be surprised if that’s how long he was literally on set for.’

Culkin also addressed speculation about his drug use during the social media event. 

He was infamously arrested in 2004 for marijuana possession. 

‘Yes, I consumed and imbibed in drugs in my life. Never as bad as people said,’ he explained.

He added: ‘It’s not really a thing in my life right now. I’m an adult. I like to drink.’
