It’s happy 30th birthday time for the infamous “Home Alone” star Macaulay Culkin. Although fans will forever remember him as 9-year old Kevin McCallister from the first and second “Home Alone” movies, he has been around for three decades now.
According to People Magazine, Macaulay Culkin has been busy since outgrowing the role of Kevin McCallister. In addition to having been married and divorced some years ago, he has been in a relationship with actress Mila Kunis (known for roles like Jackie Burkhart on “That ’70s Show,” the voice of Meg Griffin on “Family Guy,” and a slew of movies) for about 8 years now.
People says Culkin left acting only to return to it at age 21, but hasn’t done much with it in recent years. He has referred to himself as one of the most “out-of-work” actors he knows.
Immortalized on the Big Screen
Macaulay Culkin’s 30th birthday will likely leave many people feeling that if little Kevin McCallister has aged more than two decades, then everyone else has, too. And while that’s not necessarily the best feeling, it is one of life’s little certainties. Celebrities get older. Child stars grow up. At least Macaulay Culkin is immortalized on the big screen as a sweet-faced 9-year old who outwitted the bad guys….not just once, but twice.
And in the end that’s quite a list of accomplishments for an out-of-work actor turning 30.
