Macaulay Culkin is a man that needs little in the way of an introduction.

A child star in movies like Uncle Buck, Home Alone and Richie Rich, at one point Culkin was one of the biggest stars on the planet.

But, as is often the case with child stars, it didn’t last. The adult Culkin has largely shunned the limelight since then, save for the occasional film or television appearance and the odd side project here or there.

Now he’s back with a brand new podcast on BunnyEars.com and the celebrate that he even went and took part in a fascinating Ask Me Anything session with fans on Reddit.

It was a chance to have his say on some of the inaccurate tabloid reports concerning his private life, talk about his film career and also answer the biggest question of all: which is the best Home Alone movie? Here are just a few of the most notable revelations.
