Well, it looks like former child star and famous hot mess Macaulay Culkin is sporting a new — and surprisingly less messy — look! After stepping out on Sunday, July 23, the 36-year-old stunned fans as he seemed to have traded in his scruffy hairdo and scrawny frame for a new haircut and a fresh get-up!

After a dinner date with actress Brenda Song, with whom he’s starring in the upcoming film Changeland, Macaulay was seen outside Craig’s, a popular hotspot in LA. Watch the video below to see what the actor looks like today.

Considering this film comes after a long pause in acting for the Home Alone star, it’s no wonder why he’s sporting a new look. And it’s safe to say this movie role comes as a shock to fans, as, this time last year, Macaulay opened up about retiring from the acting world.

“I’m a man in his mid-30s who’s essentially retired,” he said to New York magazine last April. “I kind of go where the wind takes me a little bit. I’ll take walks at 2 or 4 in the morning because there’s nobody out on the streets and it’s easy for me to go unnoticed.”

Though he’s stayed out of Hollywood for the most part, that doesn’t mean he’s remained out of the spotlight. He makes occasional appearances on goddaughter Paris Jackson’s Instagram and has even fallen victim to a death hoax or two.

Well, we’re glad that Macaulay is looking more like his old self than ever. What do you think of his revamped look?!
