Pete Doherty has an unlikely house guest at his Paris home: Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin.

The pair share a mutual friend in New York musician Adam Green, with whom Culkin recently toured the UK, and their friendship has led to the actor spending time with Doherty while staying in Paris. The Sun reports that Culkin is a fan of the "bohemian" lifestyle enjoyed in Paris and that he has bonded with the Babyshambles frontman over poetry and acting.

"Macaulay and Pete may seem an odd couple but they’ve got loads of interests and life experiences in common," a source told the paper. "They bonded over their love of poetry and art. Macaulay can’t get enough of listening to Pete waxing lyrical about his painting and music. He’s always been a fan of extreme characters like Pete. Look at the way he defends his childhood friend Michael Jackson. Pete also loves talking to Macaulay about acting, as he’s been trying to launch a movie career."

Earlier this year, while on the road with Adam Green, Culkin performed an encore with Green at his gig at Bristol's Thekla venue. He was playing in place of Binki Shapiro, with whom Green recently released a self-titled album of duets, as she was ill and couldn't make the gig.

Meanwhile, Babyshambles recently announced details of a UK tour which will take place in October.
