In a follow-up, Macaulay encouraged fans with ‘photoshop skill[s]’ to send him a mock-up of what his potential surfing venture may look like.
‘Do any of you have photoshop skill? Can you put my head on a surfer so I can get an idea of how cool I’d look?’
Despite asking for fans to come through with their edits, Culkin has yet to share any of his favorites to Twitter.

A year later Hughes cast Culkin as the child whose family leaves him behind in the blockbuster film Home Alone.
He played clever Kevin who outsmarts two bumbling crooks.
Macaulay became an overnight sensation as people mimicked his signature hands-on-his-cheeks move.
Next he made Only The Lonely for Chris Columbus, reuniting him with John Candy.
My Girl was another hit in 1991 then came 1992’s Home Alone sequel, Los In New York, another massive success. The Good Son in 1993 was a darker film for the young star about an evil child and it did not fare as well at the box office.
Richie Rich in 1994 was a hit but after that he slowed down his career.
After years of staring in movies he took time off. Later he would admit that his father was both physically and mentally abusive as he played the part of his manager, taking 15 percent of his income.
In 2003 he popped up as an adult in Will & Grace as a backstabbing lawyer nicknamed Soupy. In 2009 he had a recurring role in Kings then from 2005 until 2010 he provided voices for Robot Chicken.

His star will rise again when he appears in season 10 of American Horror Story next year for Ryan Murphy. He reportedly will have sex scenes with Kathy Bates.
Earlier this year Culkin, whose brother is actor Kieran Culkin, told Esquire his career is not perfect.
He mentioned how he bombed an audition for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood for director Quentin Tarantino. The actor didn’t reveal what role he auditioned for in the film, which is set in Hollywood in 1969.

‘It was a disaster,’ Culkin said of the audition. ‘I wouldn’t have hired me. I’m terrible at auditioning anyway, and this was my first audition in like eight years.’
‘No matter how much I act like a curmudgeonly old man, it’s still fun to get back in the saddle once in a while and play around,’ Culkin added.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood followed fictional Hollywood star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) as he tries to make his way in a changing landscape in the summer of 1969.
He’s joined by his longtime stunt double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt), as they both learn their new neighbor is none other than Sharon Tate (Margot Robbie).
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood earned just over $141 million at the domestic box office, one of just two original films to earn over $100 million domestic, along with Us ($175 million).
The film was nominated for 10 Oscars, but it took home only two, Brad Pitt’s win for Best Supporting Actor and Best Production Design.
Culkin also revealed in the wide-ranging profile that he’s trying to have a child with his girlfriend Brenda Song.

‘We practice a lot,’ he said. ‘We’re figuring it out, making the timing work. Because nothing turns you on more than when your lady comes into the room and says, “Honey, I’m ovulating.”‘
Culkin and Song have been dating since October 2017, after meeting on the set of their movie Changeland.
He was married actress Rachel Miner in 1998 when they were both 18, but they separated in 2000 and divorced in 2002. He dated Mila Kunis for eight years, from 2002 until 2010.
