Macaulay Culkin Is 'Frightened'

While TMZ appreciated 'Saved' and 'Party Monster' as much as the next average recovering-Catholic/club kid, it truly frightens us to think of Macaulay Culkin as an "author." But apparently it doesn't frighten Miramax-Weinstein books quite as much, as they've just published 'Junior,' Culkin's first "novel," which expounds upon the pent-up emotions of a former child star.

At a recent book reading and signing at a New York Barnes & Noble, Culkin was besieged by screaming (mostly) female fans. Apparently this book event was as scary for him as making 'Uncle Buck.'
