Not every camera adds 10 pounds, it turns out.

"Home Alone" fans everywhere were distraught when a scary skinny, scruffy Macaulay Culkin resurfaced in NYC Feb. 9 in photos posted on Entertainment Tonight.

PHOTOS: Child stars gone bad

But a rep for the former child star, now 32, slams speculation that the star is struggling in any way. "Macaulay Culkin is in perfectly good health. For Entertainment Tonight or any other media to speculate otherwise is thoughtless, irresponsible and destructive."

Culkin's next rumored project is the British military film "Service Man, "which is set for release in 2013.

Explains a Culkin source of the shocking photos: "He is thin, so when he loses one pound it just looks like more."

Culkin and "Friends with Benefits" star Mila Kunis ended their low-key, eight-year relationship in late 2010.

A second insider cautions that Culkin has had "emotional issues" for years.
