Rory Culkin: As A Kid, I Read Scripts Instead Of Books

Posted: Updated:

As the younger brother of actors Macaulay Culkin and Kieran Culkin, Rory Culkin was never a stranger to Hollywood.

His first film role came at just 4 years old, when he appeared alongside Macaulay Culkin in "Richie Rich." Since then, he's cultivated an interesting list of projects, the latest of which is "Gabriel," the story of a mentally ill teenager, which is set to premiere at the 2014 Tribeca Film Festival.

During a conversation about the film, Culkin talked with HuffPost Live's Ricky Camilleri about his upbringing in a family of actors.

"I grew up in this family, so I was never really jaded by, 'Oh my god, this is a movie script in my house.' It's just a story, and I may or may not like it," he said.

But there was one downside to the ubiquitous presence of Hollywood in his home.

"On the flip side, books weren't very interesting, because [I thought], 'This isn't going to be made into a movie? That's weird.' I grew up reading scripts," Culkin said.
