Macaulay Culkin has moved in with Pete Doherty in the singer's Paris home, in order to soak up his 'bohemian' lifestyle.
The pair apparently met while working on a short film inspired by the horse tranquiliser drug ketamine, named The Wrong Ferrari. The movie was shot on an iPhone and sees Doherty painting a heart in blood while Culkin talks about prostitutes.
A source told The Sun, "Macaulay and Pete may seem an odd couple but they’ve got loads of interests and life experiences in common. They bonded over their love of poetry and art. Macaulay can’t get enough of listening to Pete waxing lyrical about his painting and music.
"He’s always been a fan of extreme characters like Pete. Look at the way he defends his childhood friend Michael Jackson. Pete also loves talking to Macaulay about acting, as he’s been trying to launch a movie career."
However, Culkin has reportedly given up on acting and told Doherty that he wants to be a full time artist, planning on being inspired by the city of Paris.

A friend of the pair told The Sun that they are not going to be a bad influence on each other, claiming that Culkin does not take drugs and that Doherty is behaving.
However, Culkin denied last year that he was addicted to heroin, despite being mistaken for a tramp last month while on a night out in London - and Doherty was seen after a concert recently wearing a dressing gown, with bloody scars and bruises on his arms.
