Macaulay Culkin plugged in his iPod
for his deejay night at New York's Le Poisson Rouge. The actor was hanging out at the bar, drinking light beer and chatting with friends and fans who approached him at the venue as his tunes played.
was animated for a majority of the night – and chatting with a blonde female – but he did engage the crowd, handing out sheets of paper and challenging them to an arty game: to cut out paper dolls resembling him. At one point, he had a doll propped up in front of him at the bar, and seemed smitten with it.
The actor, who made headlines in February after photos appeared of him looking gaunt, did look skinny last night, according to a partygoer, who notes that he was "at ease throughout the night." "There were all these girls around standing and just waiting to talk to him," says the partygoer, "or just look at him, but he didn't seem to mind at all."
Adds the partygoer: "He just looked like he was having a lot of fun at his own party." – Kevin O'Donnell
