One-time child star Macaulay Culkin insists he wouldn't change a thing about his meteoric rise to fame as a young star.

Culkin, now 23, was just 10 when he shot to prominence after the first Home Alone movie in 1990.

And despite enduring his parents' ugly breakup and custody battle, a marriage at age 17 to actress Rachel Miner which fell apart two years later and the trauma of growing up in public, Culkin still cherishes his unusual youth - because it's made him who he is today.

Culkin, currently making his comeback with 'club kids' film PARTY MONSTER, says, "I wouldn't trade any of my experiences for anything in the world.

"I'm very happy with who I am, and where I've ended up and I wouldn't change one thing. Because if you change one thing in the past, everything else is different."

And Culkin has learned from his mistakes - he insists he has no intention of marrying TV star girlfriend Mila Kunis any time in the near future.
