About Macaulay Culkin
Some time ago it was announced that Macaulay Culkin net worth was around 15 million dollars. The actor was born in New York. He began his acting career really early, when he was just four years old. Macaulay Culkin is best known for his movies in which he starred during 90s, including such hit films as “Home Alone”, “Home Alone2”,
“My Girl” and “Uncle Buck”. After these hit movies Macaulay Culkin took a break until 2000 from the acting career but he still made some appearances on TV shows and had small roles in different films.
The actor was born in 1980 and he is of Irish ethnicity. Some of the films in which he acted brought a lot of revenue to the film makers, producers, directors and writers and, naturally, to Macaulay Culkin net worth. One of these films called “Richie Rich” which was released in 1994 had revenue of 8 million dollars. Another one – “Getting Even with Dad” – grossed around 8 million dollars. However, most of the public think that movies which got the highest revenue were “Home Alone” and “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York”. But the reality is quite different. Although many people remember him from these films, the first part of “Home Alone” grossed only 100 thousand dollars if you compare it with other films in which Macaulay Culkin appeared. The second part “Home Alone 2: Lost in New York” had revenue of 4.5 million dollars.
Thus, it is assumed that the film which got the highest revenue was previously mentioned “Richie Rich” together with another film “Getting Even with Dad”, which got the same amount of sum. As a result, it is thought that these two movies enhanced the overall Macaulay Culkin net worth. Macaulay Culkin is said to be the best child actor after Shirley Temple. Also, his talent was spotted when he was just a kid, which led him to attend Balanchine’s School of the American Ballet. Firstly, the actor starred in some TV commercials and later was picked up by film directors to act in some movies.
Macaulay Culkin’s potential in acting was evaluated and appreciated and it led him to star in higher quality movies and get bigger roles. Moreover, he was chosen to act in one of the Michael Jackson’s music videos. So, it seems that Macaulay Culkin net worth comes only from his acting career and some endorsement deals, since there have been no announcements about his other activities in which he might be involved and get money from it to his total net worth.
