"He's just an anxious person," Culkin told E! News' The Rundown host Erin Lim Rhodes at the Jan. 20 eventคำพูดจาก เว็บสล็อตใหม่ล่าสุด. "Just now, I had my arm around him and he was shaking."

The Succession actor continued, "He said, 'Everything, when I go outside, makes me nervous.'"

According to Culkin, work was no exception. "Our styles definitely clashed," he said about their shooting methods on their film set. "He came to the trailer I was in and he was like, 'OK, are you ready for today?' I was like, 'Oh, I actually don't know what we're shooting today, but it'll be fine.' And that made him really nervous."

According to the Emmy winner, who made his acting debut at age 7 in 1990's Home Alone with brother Macaulay Culkin, he and Eisenberg are "just two very different people that happen to do the same job and we work differently."
