Actor MACAULAY CULKIN took the stand at MICHAEL JACKSON's child molestation trial today (11MAY05) and officially branded claims he was molested by the pop star "absolutely ridiculous".

The HOME ALONE star, now 24, is the third young man to appear for the defence to deny he was a victim of improper behaviour by Jackson during childhood visits.

The actor said prosecutors never approached him about whether he had been molested and he only learned of the allegations that he had been molested by watching news coverage of the trial.

He told the courtroom, "Somebody told me, 'You should probably check out CNN because they're saying something about you.' I just couldn't believe it... It was amazing to me that nobody even approached me and asked if these allegations were true."

Jackson's attorney THOMAS MESEREAU JR asked Culkin what he thought of the charges against the singer, to which he responded, "I think they're absolutely ridiculous."

Prosecution witnesses, including a chef, testified earlier that Jackson inappropriately touched Culkin, who was a frequent childhood guest of Jackson.

While Culkin has admitted to going in Jackson's bedroom at his Neverland Ranch several times, he insists he was never touched inappropriately and never witnessed the same happening to any other young visitors to the California property.

The 46-year-old star is accused of molesting a 13-year-old boy in 2003, giving him wine and conspiring to hold the boy's family captive. He denies all charges.

The trial continues.
