‘Nothing turns you on more than when your lady comes into the room and says, “Honey, I’m ovulating.”‘ Macaulay met Brenda Song on the set of Changeland in 2017. They are pictured September 7 2018
‘We’re figuring it out, making the timing work. Because nothing turns you on more than when your lady comes into the room and says, “Honey, I’m ovulating.”‘
When he’s not practicing baby-making, Macaulay spends his time playing video games, watching YouTube, coming up with amusing content for his website Bunny Ears and recording his podcasts.
He also loves nothing more than cuddling up in bed with Brenda and their pets.
‘I’m gonna stretch my back out, kiss my animals, and go to sleep with my lady. I’m a man of really simple pleasures.’
Brenda, who Macaulay met on the set of Changeland in 2017, gushes to Esquire: ‘People don’t realize how incredibly kind and loyal and sweet and smart he is,
‘Truly what makes Mack so special is that he is so unapologetically Mack. He knows who he is, and he’s 100 percent okay with that. And that to me is an incredibly sexy quality. He’s worked really hard to be the person he is.’
Macaulay tells Esquire, ‘People assume that I’m crazy, or a kook, or damaged. Weird.

‘People assume that I’m crazy, or a kook, or damaged. Weird.’ Macaulay tells Esquire he’s pretty well-adjusted despite what people think.
‘And up until the last year or two, I haven’t really put myself out there at all. So I can understand that. It’s also like, Okay, everybody, stop acting so freaking shocked that I’m relatively well-adjusted.
‘It’s one of those things where, like, the cliché that we’re all snowflakes? That we’re all unique? Well, you know what?… I actually am a snowflake.’
The interview delves into Macaulay’s infamous relationship with accused child sex abuser Michael Jackson and he also sets the record straight about the time all the headlines read that he ‘divorced’ his parents.
‘I legally took my parents’ names off of my trust fund and found an executor, someone who would look over my finances, just in case anyone wanted to stick their f***ing pinkie in the pie.’ the actor says of the time he ‘divorced’ his parents
Mack says the situation was misconstrued and that when his parents split (they were never legally married) he took action to protect his money and simplify the legal process.
He says when his mother and father split, neither he nor his siblings wanted to go with their father in the ensuing custody battle.
Macaulay felt the best thing to do was take his parents names off his trust fund. His earnings at the time were reported to be $15-20 million, Esquire notes.

He never did anything to me. I never saw him do anything. And especially at this flash point in time, I’d have no reason to hold anything back,’ Macaulay sticks up for his pal Michael Jackson
Macaulay says that the custody battle, which had dragged on for two years, ended soon after he did that.
He talks about his late friend Michael Jackson fondly and reflects on how they had similar childhoods, each with fathers that forced them into fame.
He was 10 years old when he struck up a friendship with the global pop star, who was 32 at the time.
In the wake of last year’s bombshell documentary Leaving Neverland, the actor still insists that no boundaries were crossed between them.
‘Look. I’m gonna begin with the line—it’s not a line, it’s the truth: He never did anything to me. I never saw him do anything. And especially at this flash point in time, I’d have no reason to hold anything back,’
