Macaulay Culkin, Pete Doherty reportedly on best behavior in Paris

Getty ImagesMacaulay Culkin's new best friend

It’s hard to think of a worse person for troubled actor Macaulay Culkin to hang out with than Babyshambles wastrel Pete Doherty, but it seems he has moved to Paris to be nearer to his pal.

While Doherty is a known heroin aficionado–recently appearing bloated, bruised and bloody in public—Culkin has always denied dogged rumors that he has a smack problem. A “friend” told The Sun that the two are in no way bad influences on each other, and that Macaulay does not take drugs and Pete is “also behaving.”

Never mind that the Telegraph has called Doherty “The Pied Piper of Heroin” and has linked him to three deaths on the stuff. Bah. The pair are probably just painting watercolor landscapes of quaint Parisian scenes while they sip Perrier. Yup.
