Christopher Kit Culkin
Back in the early '90s Macaulay Culkin, pictured, was Hollywoods biggest child star, but it was his dad, Kit Culkin, who was known as the towns biggest diva. A former stage actor who never hit the big time, Kit guided Macaulays career with an iron hand.
His power trip included director approval, getting his other children cast in Macaulays films, having scenes re-edited and, in one case, demanding that a voice-over be removed from a film. Then in the mid-'90s, he lost a custody battle with Macaulays mom, and the former stage dad from hell lost his infallible bargaining chip. Hollywood applauded.
