Actor Macaulay Culkin turns 30 – ‘Home Alone’ Star all Grown Up

Filed in Gather Celeb News Channel by on August 26, 2010 0 Comments

Today Actor Macaulay Culkin officially turns 30 years-old, making anyone who enjoyed his work in the “Home Alone” films feel even older!  In those comedic movies, Culkin portrayed a 9-year-old named Kevin McCallister who was all alone at home, fending off wannabe robbers.  Now Culkin’s an adult, but what’s he been up to?

LAS VEGAS - OCTOBER 15: Actor Macaulay Culkin (L) and actress Mila Kunis attend the launch of the 'uBid for Hurricane Relief' charity auction and benefit at the Empire Ballroom October 15, 2005 in Las Vegas, Nevada. All of the proceeds from the auction will be split evenly between the Brett Favre Fourward Foundation, the RockWorks Foundation and the Child Welfare League of America. The organizations will use money raised to help areas in the Gulf Coast devastated by Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita. The online part of the auction continues on uBid.com through November 1, 2005. (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images)

Well it seems Culkin is doing quite well, as there’s no reports of drug abuse or other bad celeb behavior like others we know.  He’s apparently in a relationship right now with actress Mila Kunis (“That 70’s Show”), which is quite a catch.  Macaulay Culkin had a wife for nearly four years from 1998 to 2002.  Also, it was known that Culkin was a very close friend of the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson.  He was likely grief stricken like many others during the time after that tragedy.

Apparently Macaulay Culkin left acting at age 14 and then made a return at 21.  He said he was one of the most “out-of-work actors” he knew.  Recently, Culkin was seen in a cameo on an episode of WWE’s TV show “Monday Night Raw”, featuring a Home Alone spot complete with a door booby trap and swinging paint can to a wrestler’s face.  In 2009, Culkin played the nephew of a king on the TV drama “Kings” which aired on NBC.  Unfortunately the show didn’t find success and was eventually canceled.  

It’s amazing to hear that Culkin has turned 30 years-old but what be most amazing is he’s only famous for his big hits as a kid, making him a lot like Gary Coleman in that respect.   Culkin seems to be doing well though, as Mila Kunis is a beautiful up-and-coming actress.  Hopefully the two get to celebrate his birthday somehow.

The video below from Youtube is a fan-made tribute to Macaulay Culkin, an ode to his scenes in “Home Alone”.  An additional tidbit, there were actually “Home Alone 3″ and “Home Alone 4″ movies released, but neither starred Culkin. 

Happy 30th Birthday Macaulay!
