Macaulay Culkin's rep says that the Home Alone actor is "in perfectly good health" and characterizes speculation to the contrary as "reckless."

The response came after a photo of the 31-year-old actor ran Thursday on ET.com, which described Culkin as "gaunt" and suggested the image was "likely to spark concern for the actor's health."

"Macaulay Culkin is in perfectly good health. For Entertainment Tonight — or any other media outlet — to speculate otherwise is reckless, thoughtless and irresponsible. We are asking them to discontinue the rumors," says his rep.

His rep also says that reports Culkin is set to start in the upcoming film, Service Man, are incorrect. "Mr. Culkin is NOT starring in Service Man, don't take for face value everything you read on IMDb. They are not always accurate."
