Kieran Culkin, Succession Star, Plans Quality Time with Kids Amidst Hollywood Hiatus

Kieran Culkin, widely recognized for his compelling role in the acclaimed HBO series Succession, took a break from the spotlight at The Hollywood Reporter’s studio during the Sundance Film Festival. The actor, who stars in the Sundance premiere A Real Pain alongside Jesse Eisenberg, Jennifer Grey, and Will Sharpe, shared insights into his post-Succession plans, emphasizing a focus on fatherhood.

Having garnered multiple awards, including an Emmy for Best Actor in a Drama Series for his role in Succession, Culkin expressed excitement about the prospect of dedicating time to his family. With Succession coming to an end, the actor looks forward to a period of respite, intending to immerse himself in the joys of parenthood.

Reflecting on his recent schedule, Culkin candidly shared, “I’m really looking forward to it when I get home because the last couple of weeks I haven’t really been much of a parent, which makes me feel like [expletive] and makes me feel like I’m not me.” His plans for the upcoming downtime include “turning the world off for about a week” and embracing the role of a hands-on dad, focusing on activities like changing diapers and bath time.

Acknowledging the challenges of balancing a demanding career with parenting, Culkin emphasized the need for occasional breaks to reconnect with family. The actor highlighted the silver lining of the months-long work break during the 2023 SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, which allowed him to spend quality time with his children, Kinsey and Wilder.

Expressing gratitude for these extended periods of family time, Culkin admitted, “It had been really…probably shouldn’t say, I don’t care… lovely for me. I’d been hiding behind it.” He recalled similar feelings during the pandemic-related work hiatus in 2020, coinciding with the birth of his daughter Kinsey.

As Culkin enjoys the Sundance premiere of A Real Pain and contemplates a Hollywood hiatus without an immediate project in the pipeline, he relishes the prospect of a few more months of cherished downtime at home. The actor’s candid remarks offer a glimpse into the delicate balance actors navigate between their professional and personal lives, emphasizing the importance of periodic breaks for self-discovery and familial bonds.
