      Macaulay Culkin stepped out in New York yesterday looking extremely thin and scruffy in exclusive photos obtained by ET that are likely to spark concern for the actor's health. Thankfully Culkin's rep tells ET, "Macaulay Culkin is in perfectly good health."

      Culkin, 31, also posed for a photo with a fan on the street and can be seen holding a can of Red Bull. The star rose to fame playing the adorable eight-year-old child Kevin McCallister in the hugely successful 'Home Alone' films. But his career as a child star later became overshadowed by a highly-publicized dispute with his parent. Culkin is rumoured to be starring in the British film Service Man -- described as an uplifting military action flick -- set for release in 2013. Whom he sued amid allegations that they had mishandled his fortune.

    • The characters that ruined movies

      Jar Jar Binks (Ahmed Best) in 'Star Wars Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace' (1999)

      Jar Jar Binks is the very epitome of what we're talking about here. True, 'The Phantom Menace' (which is re-released in 3D this week) never hits the heights of the original films, but it's nowhere near bad enough to deserve featuring something as dreadful as this computer-generated monstrosity. George Lucas was criticised for featuring the 'Gungan' alien, with detractors saying JJB was only in the film to appeal to merchandise-hungry kids.

      Jar-Jar, voiced by the black character actor Ahmed Best, was also seen as a negative stereotype by some with his laid-back nature and Caribbean-sounding pidgin English. Some fans even prefer to watch 'The Phantom Edit', a specially re-edited Jar-Jar-free version. Understandably so.

      Rachel Ferrier (Dakota Fanning) in 'War of the Worlds' (2005)

      Okay, we know that if you're a little girl and massive robotic aliens are blowing the world up and there's fire everywhere and everyone's dying, it must be fairly scary, but still... is there any need to screech and cry quite so much? Rachel is only really there to not listen to the instructions from her Dad (Tom Cruise) on how not to get into trouble, get into that trouble and then have her Dad save her from said trouble. Again and again and again. While screeching. And crying.


      Mr. Yunioshi (Mickey Rooney) in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' (1961)

      Blake Edwards' romantic comedy 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' – based on the Truman Capote novella – is considered a stone-cold classic. It features the iconic Audrey Hepburn portrayal of Holly Golightly, the uber-suave George Peppard and an Oscar-winning soundtrack.

      Unfortunately it also features the cringingly terrible buck-toothed Mr. I.Y Yunioshi, played by the decidedly-not-Japanese Mickey Rooney. Critics have described Rooney's Yunioshi as 'offensive', 'racist', 'misguided' and 'painful'. And we agree.

      The Ewoks (Various) in 'Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi' (1983)

      While they're not quite as bad as Jar Jar Binks, these furry little Endor-dwelling critters - that look like demented teddy bears - are still a blot on the 'Star Wars' landscape. If you've seen it at the cinema, you may have heard cheers when one of the scamps gets killed near the end.

      Willie Scott (Kate Capshaw) in 'Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom' (1984)

      Look, we don't want to accuse anyone of anything here, but let's look at the facts – Kate Capshaw was hired for the role of Willie Scott by 'Indy' director Steven Spielberg from a pool of 120 auditionees. Spielberg later married Capshaw. Could it be said that the ET director hired her more for her looks and his intentions instead of her acting ability? Hmmm... To be fair to Kate, there wasn't a great deal to the irritating character of Willie, apart from A LOT of screaming. And a funny name, of course.

      Ruby Rhod (Chris Tucker) in 'The Fifth Element' (1997)

      This Bruce Willis-starring sci-fi from French director Luc Besson is one of the most imaginative and visually stunning films of the '90s. It features a range of bizarre and interesting alien creatures and the oddest haircut that Gary Oldman's ever sported (and that includes his 'True Romance' dreadlocks...).

      But just try watching 'The Fifth Element' without wanting to throw your TV out of the window every time Chris Tucker's Ruby Rhod character appears. How can a make-up-wearing Chris Tucker with a blonde quiff running around in a leopard-print jumpsuit and screeching be even more annoying than it sounds? It's truly the stuff of nightmares.

      John Connor (Edward Furlong) in 'Terminator 2: Judgement Day' (1991)

      In the mythology of the 'Terminator' world, the leader of mankind against the murderous robot types and saviour of humanity is John Connor, a brave warrior. Which is remarkable, because as a ten year-old he was a horrible little wise-cracking oik with a sulky little face and the worst flock o' seagulls haircut imaginable. How Arnie's Terminator restrained himself from slapping the rude little bleeder is a minor miracle.

      Venom (Topher Grace) in 'Spider-Man 3' (2007)

      To be more irritating than Tobey Maguire in a film is some feat. So we should congratulate 'That '70s Show' actor Topher Grace, really. A trilogy as successful as 'Spider-Man' deserves a better bad guy than a skinny little whining journalist covered in diesel. Weak, weak, weak...

      Ireland inJanuary brought the warmest new year for five to 10 years in almost every part of the country, Met Eireann has revealed.
      Meteorologists said stations in the south west recorded the biggest above average spell since 2002 while others in the midlands and west were the warmest since 2007.
      The highest temperature of 13.1C (55.6F) was recorded at Shannon Airport on January 3.
      As a result of the milder than normal start to the year most weather stations have reported very few frosty mornings with only up to four recorded.
      It's about time Ireland got a little warmer!
