Is Macaulay Culkin Okay?

Macaulay Culkin has been looking pretty gaunt and disheveled lately, and last night he flaked on his monthly DJ gig at New York City's Le Poisson Rouge. A club employee said that "something just came up and he couldn't make it," and Culkin's spokesperson insists he's in good health, so it's possible he just wasn't in the mood to play music for a bunch of drunk assholes. Culkin is also rumored to be starring in an upcoming U.K film called Service Man about the military, so maybe he's preparing to play a sick soldier? Or perhaps I'm just in denial that Kevin McCallister is 31 (!) and troubled. [Daily Mail]


  • Russell Brand also canceled a gig this week, after suffering through a bad migraine during a stand-up set in Hollywood. He asked for painkillers and tried his best to power through, but couldn't swing it; he told his audience he felt "beyond ridiculous" for ending the show early. Aw, Russell. Headaches are the worst! He also told the audience that he was feeling "disenchanted and disillusioned" with fame. Poor guy. [UK Express]
  • Nicholas Cage once almost got Charlie Sheen arrested on a plane back in the 90s. And no, it wasn't during a Con Air reenactment. Cage was joking around during the flight, and started hamming it up on the pilot's microphone. Unbeknownst to him, Sheen — naturally — had an eight ball of cocaine wrapped around his ankle, and wasn't in the mood to be interrogated by enforcement officials after landing. The moral of the story: be very suspicious if Charlie Sheen ever asks you to carry his bag through security, and hope that one day you get to sit next to Nicholas Cage on a long, boring flight.

  • Miley Cyrus and Vanessa Hudgens share a Disney past, but did you know they also (coincidentally) share the same tattoo? Both starlets have Om symbols on their hands, for "positive energy." How original! [Access Hollywood]
  • Hugh Jackman just launched a fair-trade, organic, and kosher chocolate line, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to charity. "It's first and foremost about creating good products that people really want. Not that they feel like they should want it, but because they genuinely want it." Jackman said, adding that he eats a little dark chocolate every day. To be honest, I genuinely want a Butterfinger, but now I feel guilted into eating his do-gooder candy! [UK Express]
  • Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' Taylor Armstrong posted her medical records on her Facebook page after receiving criticism that her domestic abuse claims don't add up. "For those who continue to say I'm lying. Ur harming women who suffer n silence making them even more afraid 2 speak up & get help," Armstrong wrote. [Perez Hilton]
  • Jennifer Aniston's shriveled womb is one year older. [The Hollywood Gossip]
