On a podcast entitled, ‘Inside of You With Michael Rosenbaum’, Macaulay Culkin explains about his friendship with Michael.
Culkin said that in the early 90’s, Michael reached out to him because he could relate to what Culkin was going through…Finding fame at the age of ten.
“I mean, at the end of the day, it’s almost easy to try say it was like weird or whatever, but it wasn’t, because it made sense. At the end of the day, we were friends.
It’s one of my friendships that people question, only because of the fact that he was the most famous person in the world!
I was a peerless person. Nobody else in my Catholic school even had this much idea of what I was going through and he was the kind of person who’d been through the exact same frickin’ thing and wanted to make sure I wasn’t alone.
For me, it’s so normal and mundane. I know it’s a big deal to everybody else, but it was a normal friendship.”
Culkin also told the interviewer that Michael was “funny,” “hilarious,” “sweet,” “gentle” and “generous.”
