"Where Are They Now?" Wednesdays: That Kid from Home Alone

Ok, so his name is actually Macauly Culkin, but let's be honest; he will always be known as "that kid from home alone." Can you believe Home Alone came out 22 years ago? Then they made that sequel. I never understood that. Seriously? You lost your kid again? Lose your kid once, shame on you. Lose your kid twice, seriously reevaluate your parenting skills.

Anyway, parenting skills rant aside, let's see what this kid has been up to! Well, obviously he's not a kid anymore. He's actually turning 32 this year. Around 1994, Mr. Culkin stopped acting. Like most child-stars, he basically dropped off the face of the earth. But fear not, this is America. We love a comeback. Just ask Britney Spears. While Macauly hasn't had quite the successful comeback, he's still grabbing headlines.

Did you know Macauly dated Mila Kunis? Yes, that Mila Kunis. Not only did they date, they dated for eight years. Eight years is basically the equivalent to fifty-six years when you're counting in Hollywood. (It's like dog years; you just multiply by seven). Like most Hollywood splits, it was "amicable." We'll chalk it up to the age old divorce cop out "irreconcilable differences." More likely though, she reached A-list status with Black Swan and decided to dump this C-list chum. Poor kid. 

Very recently, Macauly made headlines for appearing way too thin:

According to his rep, he is fine. Looks like we have a rather subjective view of fine. It seems someone was left Home Alone for a little too long. I think he could afford to indulge in a Twinkie or two. (Or seven). Well, let's hope he gets well soon. I'd love to see a Home Alone trilogy. Have no fear, if Britney Spears can get through 2007, Macauly can get well too. 


  1. Dude. That guy was sexy. He looks so old and thin though... definitely lost his hotness. He was definitely bangable in the day though, like in Party Monster... AHHHHHHHH
