Culkin Explains His Acceptance Speech Comment

After exiting the stage, Culkin expatiated on his remarks in the press room, providing more context to the couple's situation.

He shared that they were talking about the possibility of having another baby a couple of months ago. "I’ve been asking for a while. My wife, Jazz, said 'maybe if you win the Emmy, haha."

Culkin went on add that he refrained from bringing it up for months, and then, when he won the Golden Globe, he asked her if she remembers what she'd said earlier. She responded with, “No! What did I say?” So, he recounted it to her, and it all came flooding back.

Kieran Culkin's equation with his mother Patricia Bentrup

The actor proceeded to commend his mother, Patricia Bentrup, while offering criticism to his father, Kit Culkin, without naming him. Notably, the Succession actor shares a difficult equation with his father.

Kieran was all praises about his mother Bentrup. He shared that she's “an absolutely wonderful woman,” and added that she “took on raising seven kids, in basically a studio apartment by herself.” He further said, "There was a guy there, but he didn’t do anything. She’s just an amazing woman. I didn’t know I wanted to be a parent, but the moment I found out I was going to be a dad, I just wanted to be like her."
