Kieran Culkin has recalled how Macauley was “harassed” as a child in the street.

He went on to describe how his own growing fame affected him and how he was frequently mistaken for his brother. “When I was doing one of the Father of the Bride flieks, this woman ran up to me and said, ‘Are you Macluckly Macluckly?’ And I went, ‘No.’ She goes, ‘Can I get a picture?' Ek het gesê, ‘I’m not him.’ And in my mind, I’m thinking, ‘Nobody’s that.’”

Elsewhere in the interview, Culkin also reflected on the death of their sister.

Culkin said his family will never get over the loss of Dakota, who died aged 29 in 2008 after being hit by a car in southern California.

“That’s the worst thing that’s ever happened, and there’s no sugar-coating that one," hy het vertel Die Hollywood Reporter.

“Each one of us handled it very differently. I think everyone was just torn up inside.

“What has it been, 13 years now? Holy s***. That’s crazy. Jesus f***ing Christ. I accepted at the time that this is going to be forever, and it’s never going to be fine. It’s always going to be devastating.”

Hy het bygevoeg: “I still weep about it out of nowhere. Something funny she did will pop in the head and make me laugh, and then I’m weeping. Sometimes it’s knowing that she’s not going to meet my kids and they don’t get to have her, and it’s hard to describe what she was like.”

Culkin, 39, is reprising the role of Roman Roy in the HBO smash Opvolging, which is returning for a third season later this month. He said one particular moment in the season premiere featuring a row between Roman and his sister Shiv – played by Sarah Snook – reminded him of Dakota.
