(LOS ANGELES) -- A rep for actor Macaulay Culkin has issued a statement regarding the actor's health, following speculation that the Home Alone star is sick.
The rumors began when photos of the 31-year-old Culkin appeared on ET.com Thursday, accompanied by a story that he looked "gaunt" and suggested the picture would "likely spark concern for the actor's health."
Culkin's rep tells TV Guide, "Macaulay Culkin is in perfectly good health. For Entertainment Tonight -- or any other media outlet -- to speculate otherwise is reckless, thoughtless and irresponsible. We are asking them to discontinue rumors."
Also, Culkin will not star in the upcoming flick Service Men, his rep corrected.
