Macaulay Culkin's Life As A 30-Something Retiree Involves Some 'Whatevering'

And walks at 4 a.m.

Macaulay Culkin is not your typical 35-year-old. 

“I’m a man in his mid-30s who’s essentially retired,” Culkin told Vulture in a new interview with Adam Green, whose film "Adam Green's Aladdin" features Culkin. “I kind of go where the wind takes me a little bit.”

The former child star likes to paint, write in his notebooks and do some "whatevering." He enjoys hosting people at his loft in lower Manhattan and taking walks at 2 or 4 a.m. "because there’s nobody out on the streets and it’s easy for me to go unnoticed.” 

He also writes jokes. 

"When life gives you lemons … cook fish," he wrote in one of his notebooks. "When life gives you lemons … be thankful it didn’t give you testicular cancer. When life gives you lemons … you should paint them green and see if anyone notices they are not limes. It goes on for pages and pages," he explained.

Early retirement for the notoriously private actor, who currently has a band called The Pizza Underground, is not so surprising. He skyrocketed to fame at the young age of 10 in "Home Alone" and was able to command $8 million per movie

"I'd made enough money by the time I was 12 to never have to work again," he once said. 

Good for you, buddy.
