Macaulay Culkin is fit as a fiddle, his has insisted spokeswoman insists despite reports in US tabloids.

The 31-year-old actor’s publicist has fired back at entertainment site ETOnline, after the site published a photo of the former Home Alone star looking gaunt on the streets of New York on Wednesday.”Macaulay Culkin is in perfectly good health,” the spokesman said in a statement.”For Entertainment Tonight – or any other media – to speculate otherwise is reckless, irresponsible and destructive.” ran the photo with the blaring headline, “Exclusive: Macaulay Culkin’s Gaunt Photo.”Characterising the actor as “extremely thin and scruffy,” the site said it was due to publish more photos “likely to spark concern for the actor’s health.”ETOnline has also subsequently published a story suggesting that Culkin’s weight loss may be because he’s attached to the military comedy-drama “Service Man” — though the actor’s representative has also denied Culkin’s involvement in the project.
